This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Detox Organics. All opinions are 100% mine.
Please tell me I am not the only one who LOVED Pudding Pops when I was a kid…
Do you remember them?
My grandma would always, without fail, have them in her freezer when we would visit. So that would be our special treat when we would go to Grandma's house.
Well, one of them anyway. She is the most amazing cook and baker so there was always some kind of yummy goodness around.
But, whatever happened to jello pudding pops anyway?
They were super popular when we were younger, but now, they aren't even really a “thing” at all. Have we moved on as a society to bigger and better snacks?
What happened to Jello Pudding Pops?
No really…I want to know.
How does something so popular just fall off the face of the earth?
Their first year of marketing the pudding pops, they were actually quite popular. This was in the 70's where Bill Cosby helped to coin the term “Puddin' Pops”, making them a household staple and name.
Due to lack of profit, they were discontinued entirely in the 90's. After several years of being gone from the market, Popsicle company did their best to try to bring them back….but no luck.
The jello pudding pops ran their course of popularity and were no longer a choice for taste buds around the world.
Looking back, I can't say that I ever even knew the ingredients of what was in those pudding pops. But I am pretty sure they weren't the healthiest option.
My Mission: Create a Healthy Homemade Pudding Pop Recipe
So I visited my favorite place, Pinterest to see what I could find.
Unfortunately, I wanted a healthier option and the recipes I found, were either full of sugar or used artificial sweeteners.
Sugar-Free Desserts: What does that mean exactly?
Let's talk briefly about sugar-free desserts. So many people have the thought that just because an item states it's sugar-free, it means it's healthy and okay to eat more of due to the “lack” of sugar.
When a label on a dessert mentions the words “sugar-free”, do your research.
While it may technically be free of sugar, more than likely that sugar has actually just been replaced with some form of chemically made sweetener that is not natural for your body.
So, when you are consuming something that is sugar-free, in all reality, you're potentially consuming something that your body may have a hard time breaking down as well.
If at all possible, do your best to avoid those desserts that are labeled as “sugar-free”, unless it is a healthy, natural sweetener like Stevia.
Consider me anti sugar-free if you will, and I'm totally fine with that.
I choose not to use artificial sweeteners for my family because the side effects are awful although companies claim they are safe…
