He’s Green She’s Green: Frozen Fruit Bars

Here in the Southwest, we go to great lengths to keep from melting into the pavement during these long summers. One way to cool off is to keep our freezers stocked with tasty frozen treats, especially fruit bars. We found a few frosty delights that are totally worth the brain freeze.

Julie’s Organic Pure Delight | Organic Mandarin Sorbet BarsOrganic Mandarin Sorbet Bars

He said:  I expect sorbet to be icy like frozen juice, but these were not. Julie made a surprisingly smooth frozen treat that’s easy to eat. It had a very tart, orange flavor that made me do the lemon squints at least once while I was eating it. P.S. Julie, if you are reading this—a mandarin Creamsicle would be amazing.

He gave it: ★★★★

She said:  These melted faster than you can say “sorbet,” so push through the brain freeze and eat up! The smooth, soft texture was nice, but the bitter orange aftertaste was not so “smooth.” I hate to say it—more sugar!

She gave it: ★★★

 

Luna & Larry’s Organic Coconut Bliss | Naked Coconut Luna & Larry’s Organic Coconut Bliss

He said:  Coconut Bliss was exactly that—bliss. This luxuriously smooth and sweet Creamsicle had the perfect coconut flavor. I couldn’t help but think I was on a tropical beach with my swim trunks on while I ate it. It was only when I had finished it, that I realized I was actually at the kitchen table in my underwear.

He gave it: ★★★★★

She said:  It was hard to believe that this creamy frozen treat is dairy-free. This is a great example that you don’t need dairy to create a yummy dessert (the cows will thank you for it!) Soft, with plenty of shredded coconut throughout, I enjoyed every blissful bite.

She gave it: ★★★★

 

FrütStix | Organic Chunky Strawberry FrütStix

He said:  What’s a FrütStix? Well, it’s a stick, with fruit on it, so they creatively call it a FrütStix. I really can’t describe it any better. It’s a stick with frozen strawberry fruit puree on it, nothing more, nothing less. It has an average flavor for an average frozen treat. If Wednesday is your favorite day of the week, this is the treat for you.

He gave it: ★★★

She said:  Even though these were pretty basic fruit bars, they are organic, not too sweet, and the chunks of juicy strawberries are plentiful. I thought they were great. A sunny day at the pool really wouldn’t be complete without them.

She gave it: ★★★★

 

Luna Pops | Rhubarb LimeLuna Pops

He said:  This Luna pop was frozen lime and pink sugar juice on a stick. The flavor was good, but boring. The lime stood out, but rhubarb flavor was indiscernible. Honestly, they could package these as lime/strawberry, or lime/watermelon, or lime/chocolate milk and nobody would know the difference.

He gave it: ★★

She said:  Five simple ingredients are all it takes to make this icy frozen treat. These had a mild flavor and were more sweet than tart, which was a bummer. However on a blazingly hot Arizona summer afternoon, these would be so refreshing.

She gave it: ★★★

 

Jolly Llama | Pineapple Coconut Sorbet Pops Pineapple Coconut sorbet pops

He said:  Ow! This Push-Pop-style Popsicle is almost impossible to eat without biting into it with your front teeth. I have slightly sensitive front teeth so every bite was a bit painful. But, don’t get me wrong. I finished it. The pineapple-coconut flavor was outstanding. I was conflicted because I simultaneously looked forward to and dreaded every bite.

He gave it: ★★★★

She said:  I certainly felt “jolly” after this delicious pop! Creamy coconut and tart pineapple are perfectly blended together. It was like a piña colada in a cone-shaped wrapper (though missing a bit of rum…hmm). Instead of melting down your hand, the cone catches it so you can drink it (add rum here). Genius!

She gave it: ★★★★★
