My kids love their bling {product review}

I am the first mom – well, in my neighborhood – that complains about all the sugar and sweets children consume. It almost hurts me to watch them wolf down empty calories that hold no nutritional value, but I understand that children like candy – as much as I like dark chocolate – so I have to give in now and then.

100_4995One type of candy they like are Ring Pop. When I saw an email about testing Sugar Free Ring Pop, I had to say yes because just days before that my three children had been arguing over the last one. I finally got the chance to break out the bag (it was mysteriously hiding in a drawer in my office), which contained three Sugar Free Ring Pop in strawberry, blue raspberry and watermelon.

My threesome were more than excited to help me with this particular product review. (No, their expressions don’t quite relay that!) Anna had strawberry, Andre watermelon because his favorite color is green and that left blue raspberry for Amareah. Before they had a chance to race away with them I was able to get a quick taste of the strawberry one and, surprisingly, I thought it was very tasty. One hundred percent of the time I put back products that contain Splenda because I normally do not like the taste, but I must admit that the pop had a great strawberry taste and just enough of sweetness.

100_4998The children ran off contemplating what color their tongues would be afterward and I wish I had a picture of Amareah with blue raspberry lips. Hands down the Ring Pop was a hit. They had no idea they were sugar free.

Sugar Free Ring Pop is even a mom-approved treat for children with diabetes because there are 0 sugar carbs and impact carbs. The pops are also fat free and have only 30 calories per pop – not too bad. Even with all of that goodness I still like to keep track of the sweet goodies my kiddos are noshing on. But, overall, this sweet experience was a winner.     100_4996  

If you want to find Sugar Free Ring Pop, you can pick some up at Walmart and BJ’s as well as online at Amazon.com and ShopTopps.com.

Keep up with Ring Pop on Facebook and Twitter.
