A 45 Calorie Treat
My husband, Matt, loves popsicles. Like, really really LOVES them. He often reminisces about the days when we lived in Utah and could get Pace bars at Macey's and he'd eat the whole bag in two days. Don't even get me started on the otter pop wrapper mess! I banned them from the house because they were making me so angry!
Popsicle lovin' might be a Carlson family trait. I remember my first trip to visit Our Fearless Leader in NYC. We went in practically every corner market in Brooklyn one night in search of these special, delicious fruit bars/popsicles that the Queen Vee loved. I can't remember what they were called, but they were really yummy!
Yesterday Matt cycled his first century, and I wanted to get him a little treat that wouldn't blow my calories. I picked up a box of these. Now, I'm not that into popsicles, I'm more of an ice cream kinda girl. But I have to say that 45 calories worth of this popsicle is way more satisfying than 45 calories worth of ice cream. And so I recommend to you Dreyer's (Edy's) fruit bars. The strawberry ones are amazing, and for 45 calories, it's a treat that can fit into everyone's calorie budget.
