I have a secret to tell you. I really don’t like desserts.

I know, shocking.

Don’t let me mislead you, I have plenty of bad eating habits on the salty side of things, but I usually pass over the dessert tables.

I just find them too rich and sweet.

But ice pops, they are my weakness.

Bringing the Beach Home with Outshine Fruit Pops

At the beach where we go for vacation, every hour or so, the ice cream man (or lady) treks up onto the beach, block by block, and rings their bell. And the kids go running.

We never head to the beach without sunscreen or cash in our pockets.

My kids come running out of the water, grab the strategically placed money and head for the truck. They never stop to ask to ask Mom what she wants.

They already know.

Mom wants whatever type of fruity ice pop they have.


They are refreshing, never over filling and not too rich and sweet.

So imagine my delight when I found out that Edy’s had a new line of fruit bars, called Outshine – that I could find right at home, in my grocery store.


And the range of flavors are right up my alley – strawberry, raspberry (my favorite), tangerine, strawberry, wildberry and lime (my other favorite), just to name a few. All of the flavors I tried were made with real fruit or fruit juice, were fat free and depending on the flavor selections, they were only 25 or 40 calories each. Who couldn’t use a low calorie snack that they love?


And while Outshine provided the fruit bars for me to try – there is something great in it for you too! Leave a comment with which flavor you most look forward to trying from Outshine and enter to win a $100 Visa gift card. Does it get any better than that?

Thanks so much for reading!

Take care, Laura

P.S. And then there were two!
