Being at the zoo with grade 1's means that you're hanging out with monkeys all day. As we walked through the zoo the kids kept spotting the Nestlé ice-cream vendors and more precisely what caught their eyes were the Peelin' Pops. They are banana shaped frozen treats you peel and eat like a real banana. While we couldn't buy any while we were there as a school, I knew exactly what my own monkeys would want to bring to the pool party.
Fast Forward to Sunday - The sun was shining, the birds were singing, it was the perfect day for a pool party. The kids are already monkeys so that part was easily taken care of. After hours of swimming in the pool they were ready for another kind of refreshment. Cue the Nestlé Peelin' Pops.
Each kid had their own technique for peeling and eating their Peelin' Pop. Some ate the banana 'skin' first while others tackled the vanilla filling and saved the gummy for afterwards. Either way, they all enjoyed their treat and had a blast eating them.
As a mom I was happy to be able to pick up a box of treats that contain no artificial colours and are low in fat. I found that they were the perfect size for kids and priced at under $6 for 8 treats, Nestlé Peelin' Pops are an economical treat which are sure to become a summer staple. From my monkeys to yours, I hope you have a great summer!
