It’s almost summer and I don’t know about where you live, but near Cincinnati, it’s almost 90 degrees. That’s HOT. So around this time of year I’m looking for cold treats. I walked into the grocery store over the weekend and saw one of my favorites: Fla-Vor-Ice. Ever since I can remember I have enjoyed this treat. My mom, years ago, purchased these for us when we were little and now that I have a three year old, for the first time she is old enough to hold one AND be picky enough to ask for her favorite color!
As a dad who is worried about snacks and their quality, this is one snack that I’m not worried about! Its low in calories, only about 20 for each Fla-Vor-Ice pop, and also low in sugar. They are also portioned controlled, once it’s gone, it’s gone! But something that is also important to me is the nostalgia of Fla-Vor-Ice. I loved them as a kid, and well I still love them as an adult. One of my favorite traditions when I eat them is to cut off the tops of each flavor (I rarely just eat one) and then sample them all to determine which one I want to eat last. Now that I have a three year old that is bossy, pushy and wants everything that her daddy is eating, I am now giving a Fla-Vor-Ice to her. She wants the pink ones and she wants the cut off tops too, she gets mad when I sneak and eat them! (Gotta love little ones as they develop a personality!)
As a frugal dad, Fla-Vor-Ice also offers a budget friendly snack as well. A few dollars will get you a huge pack of them, and at less than $.10 a pop, these are a great, affordable snack. If you are in the grocery store, remember to check out the variety that Fla-Vor-Ice has to offer. They are a snack that is ‘Dad-approved’ we enjoy and we know you will too!
