Given the amount of sugar available in most processed candies, Cathy and I were originally hesitant to buy them for our children. That was until we discovered Yummy Earth’s Organic Vitamin C Pops at Healthy Options. These lollipops are a much better alternative to the commercially available lollipops from Jack N’ Jill and the like. There are no artificial dyes and colors; all the flavor and colors come from the real fruit extracts that go into the making of the lollipops. They’re organic, gluten-free, vegan, and free of soy, nut, and dairy. There were no pesticides or chemicals that went into the processing of the fruit that went into the pops. That’s pretty good stuff, if you ask me.
Each bag of the Yummy Earth Organic Vitamin C Pops has three flavors: strawberry smash, tooberry blueberry, and razzmatazz berry. Look at these ingredients: Organic Evaporated Cane Juice, Organic Tapioca Syrup, and or Organic Rice Syrup, Citric Acid (from beet sugar), Organic Acerola Berry, Natural Flavors, may contain Organic Black Carrots, Organic Black Currant, Organic Apple, Organic Carrot, and Organic Pumpkin.
I feel better with my kids eating these instead of the artificial flavors and refined white sugar that go into the production of the run-of-the-mill lollipops. How often do my kids eat these pops anyway? At one a day, they get their 100% vitamin C requirement at only 22 calories a pop. I find my kids’ sweet teeth are assuaged with just one pop; they don’t ask for more after that, and snacking is reduced. Sure, it’s pricier – a lot pricier – than other lollipops, but we invest in our kids’ health, we reap the benefits in many, many ways, right? I’d recommend Yummy Earth Organic Vitamin C Pops for parents looking for a yummy candy that’s good for their kids’ health.
