What was your favorite snack as a child?   

My husband and I both loved Fla-Vor-Ice freezer pops!  Can you remember having them?
My husband said that when they were little, he and his brother would grab three of them at a time, so that by the time they finished one, the next one is a little melty.  They used to try to see who could have the most juice left at the end, without having them be completely melted.

They were the perfect snack (I can even remember getting them in my trick or treat bag!   It was fun to take them home, freeze them and have them the next morning!) 

Our kids LOVE freezer pops, too.   They could literally eat the Fla-Vor-Ice freezer pops several times a day, if I’d let them!  Lately I’ve been letting them have one in the afternoons after they play outside for an hour or so.   This week we’ve been playing a lot of baseball and kickball in our back yard (and I’ve introduced them to Monkey in the Middle!) and these are the perfect snack when we are done.  (Of course, they each have their favorite “color” or flavors, too.  Orange & Green!

I pick them because they are a great snack that any mom can feel really good about serving to her kids because FVI is made with real juice and has only 20 calories per serving. Fla-Vor-Ice has been a trusted brand for over 40 years and has a strong loyalty among those who enjoyed the product as a kid.

It is a great snack for play dates, too!  Our family has four kids, so our house is often one that has kids at it.  I’m sure as the kids get older, this will happen even more often- four kids is already a party, but add a few of their friends and the fun can really take off!  Any mom can confidently hand-out FVI to her kids’ friends because FVI contains no allergens and is such a light snack that it won’t interfere with any meals that their parents have planned for them. The same does not hold true if she serves other snacks (not to mention that it is less than $0.10 per serving).  

My kids (& their friends) like Fla-Vor-Ice because it is a fun and refreshing treat and it tastes great. Fla-Vor-Ice is considered more flavorful than competitive freezer pops. The brand offers a wide variety of flavors and sizes, making it the perfect frozen treat for all ages. There are Original Fruit Flavors, Tropical Flavors and even a Sugar-Free variety so there’s a Fla-Vor-Ice pop for everyone! All are made with real fruit juice – providing a great Fat Free snack for moms to share with their little ones – and their friends!

Isn’t it funny that our kids eat the same thing that we had growing up (snacks).  When I opened our box of Fla-Vor-Ice, my husband said “Oh, man!  Those are my favorite.  I used to eat those all the time.”  Its fun to share something with my kids that I also enjoyed.
