L is for Lollipop

Last week my daughter had to get another round of blood draws… 5 more vials out of her little vein! It breaks a momma’s heart… but I am sooo thankful that even with all her food allergies and intolerances, that there is a sweet little treat- a LOLLIPOP that she can have after times like these!!
Yummy Earth makes a great lollipop that we have become very partial to! Here is even a video on HOW they MAKE them…love that it started with 2 dads wanting to feed their babies healthy stuff!
The best part about Yummy Earth’s pops are they are preservative and artificial ingredient free and ORGANIC which warms this mommas heart!
… and what is not to love with flavors like mango tango, wetface watermelon, pomegranate pucker!!

We have been able to buy these locally at Whole Foods in their bulk section. They are a bit more expensive (around 16-20 cents each) than your standard artificially flavored and colored lollipops, but the flavor is so incredible it is worth the extra few cents per pop!

A spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down, and a Yummy Earth lollipop helps the tears dry a bit faster!

Do you have any sweet treats that you have found that your kids love that are “artificial chemical free” ? Please share in the comments below!

    Maybe we can hit up HEB to carry them. I would love to buy these.

    Amazon puts the Yummy Earth lollipops on sale pretty frequently. I’ve heard good things, but we haven’t tried them yet. I’ll be poking around your blog, since Stacy recommended you!

    Not sure what it comes out to per sucker but I got a 5 lbs bag on Amazon for about $15 I think. It was months ago and it will last a long time. But I can give them away in treat bags too. I love these pops. Amazon periodically puts them in sale and you get free ship with Amazon mom and no tax!

  5. We LOVE yummy earth lollipops. It’s practically the only thing our baby with mito (and food allergies and dismotility and reflux, etc. etc.) can enjoy eating–she is tube fed neocate jr. 24/7.

    And an added bonus–the sticks don’t dissolve and cause a choking hazard like Dum-Dums!

    We have the Yummy Earth lollis and dole them out on VERY special occasions (because of the sals). I buy boxes of the white rock candy pops on Amazon (called swizzle sticks, I think) and maple sugar candy is also safe.
