When I first tried Ruby Rockets Frozen Pops years ago, they were actually probiotic pops. I thought that was such a cool idea! I loved the cool, mild sweetness right after workouts. It was a great refresher and easy on my stomach. Sadly, they removed the probiotic power, and renamed them to Ruby Rockets Fruit & Veggie Pops.

Great, healthier alternative for kids
Don’t expect a sugary rush. Rather, Ruby Rocket’s are a just-sweet-enough smoothie fruit and vegetable blend, stocked with probiotics and frozen into fun pops. While they are a great, healthier alternative for kids, I loved them for a refreshment “treat” post-workout. They revitalized, tamed my tummy, and tasted a whole lot better than plain old water.
