Kalyn's Kitchen Picks: Popsicle Tropicals Sugar Free Popsicles

When it's really hot outside, these tropical-flavored popsicles are a sugar-free treat!

(I first recommended this product in 2005, it's being made an official Kalyn's Kitchen Pick July 2011.)  Temperatures in Salt Lake are in the 90's and I have two very cute boys visiting my house, so we've been cooling down with Popsicle Sugar Free Tropicals, one of my favorite guilt-free summer treats.  I've tried many brands of sugar-free ice pops, but this is the one I keep coming back to because of the tropical flavors.  My favorite is tropical orange, but I also like the Caribbean fruit punch and Hawaiian pineapple flavor.   And yes, it's a little silly to get excited about a sugar-free popsicle, but when it's scorching hot outside these do taste deliciously refreshing.

Sugar-free popsicles do have artificial sweetener in them, which is something I feel is safe in moderate amounts.  (If you disagree then this product is not for you, but please don't leave comments lecturing me about artificial sweetener; I believe everyone is entitled to make their own food choices.)  Here's the nutrition information for the Popsicle Tropicals if anyone is curious:

  1. These look like the perfect treat in this crazy hot summer!

  2. The only thing I'm more addicted to than these popsicles is Fresca. I'm a year-round Tropicals eater!

  3. Hi Kalyn - the "Peach Fresca" link on this page is not working - it directs to your recommendation on Ruby Red Grapefruit Crystal Light. I've never tried Peach Fresca, so was interested to read your thoughts.

    I'm a fairly new follower of your blog and I love it! I've been successful on SBD Phase 1 because of you, so THANKS!!

  4. Maris, they really are much better than regular popsicle flavors.

    Lydia, they're good aren't they!

    Roger, thanks so much for telling me, and I just fixed the link. And so glad to hear that you're doing well on phase one! Glad the blog has been helpful.

  5. That is a great recommendation! Thanks for the idea. It is fun to check in on you and see what you are doing. Your garden looks wonderful too!!!

  6. Thanks Shannan! Fun to hear from you; hope things are going well.

  7. I would like these, but I make my own & they are perfect! I went to Target & found a popsicle mold for $1.. Then I found a recipe for Sugar Free, Carb Free, Calorie Free popsicle, my daughter & I both eat them!
    Here's the recipe!
    1 package of Sugar Free Jello
    1 package of Koolaid
    1/4 c. of Splenda (or any 0 calorie sweetner)

    Boil your 1 cup of water as required on jello package. Put both Koolaid & Jello powder together in bowl. Add boiling water as told. Add 1 cup of ice cold water as instructed & then put in mold, freeze, & enjoy!

    Whenever you buy the Jello & Koolaid, but the same flavor, or something that will mix well. They are delicious! & Carb Free!

  8. Delonie, sounds interesting!
