    Default Healthy store bought Popsicle???

    Yes, I know making them would be the best option. But for DD, she likes store bought. Not sure why. Lately she is into popsicles. I would like a store bought brand with no artificial colors or flavors and no added sugar. Is there one out there that is just juice or puréed fruit and juice? No TJ near us, we do have a Whole Foods close by, but it is PITA to get to. TIA!

    I'd just go to WF and stock up. Popsicles keep.
    But, I think mainstream stores should have options as well.

    We've been buying this brand. Not at home so I can't read the ingredients, but the boxes claim "real fruit" and they taste good. They sell them everywhere.

    We like the Outshine bars but they do have added sugar. We sometimes buy a bottle of good juice and make our own Popsicles with IKEA molds. V8 Fusion juices have no added sugars and the peach mango made great Popsicles!

    Aldi has many Popsicles that appear to be healthy.

    We buy outshine. It comes down to "it's a popsicle". It's a treat. It's 35 calories. It has fruit juice. It's not perfect, but again, it's a popsicle. Not on my list of stressors. DDs eat well, love fruits and veggies, and don't eat of lot of junk food. A summery treat doesn't bother me. (Of course my girls weigh around 45# at eight years old, if they were heavy I might be more concerned.)

    DD likes the Outshine bars.

    We've also done OK with Wegmans house brand "no sugar added" (but not artificially sweetened - I won't let DD have that and I think it tastes pretty awful myself) popsicles, though they're probably not real fruit juice (I don't much care - they're cold and use vegetable-based dye, so they taste like the flavors they're purported to be rather than FD&C Red No 4 or whatever. I don't like the way those dyes taste.)

    I've also seen Welch's answer to Free-Z-Pops (you know, the dyed sugar-water in a plastic tube that you freeze) though they are pricier per piece than the cheapie ones. I think we have plans to get these later in the summer.

    You can also freeze tube yogurt for a nice treat!

    We have an organic brand from Aldi's. It does have added sugar, but is otherwise pureed fruit and fruit juice. The mango is around 14g sugar and 70 cal.

    Another vote for those as well, they are tasty.
