Some of the world's best inventions were created by accident, and that's precisely how Ruby's Rockets came about. When Hollywood actress and mom Wendy Makkena knocked over her healthy "green" smoothie she reached for a Popsicle mold instead of a towel. Her daughter Ruby loved the pops so much that Wendy quickly realized this could be a great way to get her daughter to eat her daily dose of fruits and veggies. And the healthy and delicious popsicle company was launched into orbit!
Ruby's Rockets have only 2 grams of sugar and less than 35 calories per pop. There are no added sugars, no high fructose corn syrup and no artificial colors or flavorings. Each pop is naturally dairy-free, GMO-free, gluten-free, HFCS-free, egg-free, vegan and kosher.
Ruby's Rockets are a great "anytime" treat - they can be enjoyed in the afternoon, as a midnight snack or even for breakfast. They are loved by kids and adults alike, so it's a great snack to have stored in your freezer. The pops are available in three out-of-this-world flavors:
Galaxy Green – kiwi, spinach, and avocado
Rock-It Red – sweet potatoes, strawberries, carrots, and beets
Orbit Orange – oranges, sweet potatoes, and carrots
Ruby's Rockets retail for $5.99 for box of 6 and can be purchased on www.rubysrockets.com or at select retailers.
