Awhile back at Publix, my son saw a huge display of freezer pops and was excited and wanted to try them. I knew it was filled with artificial food colorings, something we don’t ever have in our house, so I wanted to find a comparable organic version. I’ve looked for organic popsicles but even the natural and organic ones are filled with sugar.
I hopped on over to Thrive Market and found the best price on Goodpop organic freezer pops over there. These are made from 100% fruit juice and have no added sugar. I was able to score a huge 24 ct. bag for just $9.99 ($19.99 at other retailers). That comes out to just $.41 a pop, not a bad price for an organic treat!
My son was eagerly awaiting our package and as soon as it came we put them in the freezer and they were ready to eat shortly after. Both my 6 and 3 year old LOVE them and asked for more and I was a happy mama that I could provide a fun treat without any worries about the ingredients.
Here’s a comparison of the ingredients you’ll find in the regular freezer pops over Goodpops.
Regular freezer pops ingredients: water, high fructose corn syrup, 25% fruit juice concentrates, citric acid, natural and artificial flavors, sodium benzoate and potassium sorbate (preservatives), red 40, yellow 5, yellow 6, blue 1.
Goodpops: 100% organic fruit juice, natural flavor, organic guar gum, malic acid and fruit and vegetable juice for color.
By the way, if you’re new to Thrive Market, you can score 25% off your entire first order by going here, which would bring the price down to just $7.50 for the Goodpops! Plus, you’ll score a free 30 day membership. Thrive Market works like a Costco, where you pay a yearly fee of $59.95. I’ve found it’s totally worth it though with their low prices.
