What makes Ruby Rocket’s a healthier option?
– Ruby Rocket’s ice pops contain only real food that a 6-year-old can pronounce but adults love.
– Probiotics: Ruby Rocket’s uses Ganeden BC30 composition, which has the ability to survive the manufacturing process to withstand freezing temperatures; allowing you the same healthy benefits in frozen form.
Originally Ruby Rocket’s entered the frozen-snack category with three flavors of veggie & fruit pops: Galaxy Green, Rock-It Red, and Orbit Orange. They now offers eight flavors with the recent addition of: Celestial Cherry, Far Out Fudge, Meteorite Mango, Gravity Grape and Planetary Pink Lemonade. Yours truly was able to sample each flavor!
The Taste Test
Celestial Cherry [yumberry, beets, tomato, pomegranate and cherry]: This was my least favorite. To me it was very beet and carrot tasting.
Far-Out Fudge [banana, beets, ace, sweet potato and cocoa]: I personally liked this one more the second time around. Obviously it’s not a fudge pop, but it curbs the craving. BTW– didn’t taste the beets at all!
Meteorite Mango [pineapple, sweet potatoes, butternut squash, mango and passionfruit]: Hands down my favorite flavor. Slightly tart, but so yummy. All I could taste was the mango and pineapple. Little miss Emerson loved it as well.
Orbit Orange [sweet potatoes, strawberries, banana, orange and carrots]: Tasted just like an orange pop. This was my hubby’s favorite.
Planetary Pink Lemonade [purple sweet potatoes, strawberries, butternut squash, pomegranate and goji berry]: I wasn’t a big fan, but apparently it’s a fan favorite among my friend’s kids. It was too sour for me.
Gravity Grape [acai, concord grapes, purple sweet, sweet potatoes and blueberries]: I’m just not a grape fan period. However, my hubby liked it.
Rock-it Red [Strawberry, beets, banana, sweet potato and carrot]: Not bad. The strawberry and carrot really stood out to me.
Galaxy Green [avocado, spinach, kiwi, green apple and banana]: Not bad if you like Avocado — which I do. I felt this pop had more of a overall veggie taste.
Although I didn’t care for all the flavors, overall I really liked the Ruby Rocket’s veggie & fruit pops. Luckily our local Raley’s carries my favorite flavor, Meteorite Mango. I will actually purchase a box [or two] again. It’s nice to know there’s a tasty ‘healthy’ treat alternative out there. Because they are full of good-for-you ingredients I don’t mind sharing with miss Emerson! According to my husband he liked all the flavors.
Ruby Rocket’s frozen fruit and vegetable pops add a healthful boost to your snacking routine!
