(Closed) Jolly Llama Sorbet Squeezups Review & Giveaway! Ends 11/2 (5 Winners!)


Jolly Llama wants you to enjoy frozen treats without all the artificial sweeteners and flavors. All-natural and a healthier alternative, their Squeezups allow you to squeeze the tube of sorbet up as you enjoy it. Popsicles are a fun treat for kids, but not when you're talking about a toddler that requires a bath afterwards!  These uniquely designed tubes of frozen sorbet are great for all ages, and without a major mess.
The sorbet's texture is perfect right out of the freezer. It hold it's shape as you squeeze it up, and yet is completely soft enough to bite into without freezing your mouth! Each flavor was divine in it's own way, and absolutely full of delicious flavor and REAL fruity texture and taste. They aren't icy at all so you can truly taste the high quality ingredients each Squeezup is packed with. The sorbet is made from real fruit, and not from juice or concentrates.

No artificial ingredients, refined sugars, high fructose corn syrup, or GMO's. They are also dairy free, gluten free, and Kosher Certified. Actually, the ingredients overall are quite simple and you can view each flavor's ingredients on their website by scrolling over each one. With only 70-100 calories per 3oz tube, you can totally enjoy a Squeezup guilt-free! Believe me, 3oz per tube is enough. It's actually quite satisfying!

 
I was able to try 4 flavors. The Blueberry, Raspberry, Strawberry, and Mango sorbets. I think the Raspberry is my favorite, but each one was really great. I really wanted to try the new Banana Coconut, but I wasn't able to find it. It's a newer flavor though, so hopefully it will come to my local Whole Foods soon. I will probably order a box or two from Foodzie.com though since I LOVE bananas AND coconut too (see deal below!). I'm sure that flavor is a wonderful combo!

Mmmmmm, deliciousness. Buddy thoroughly enjoyed this Blueberry Squeezup and didn't need me to help him squeeze the tube to get more. He figured it out quick and definitely enjoyed this treat without a huge mess! With only 17 grams of sugar, I'm not worried about a major sugar high like some yogurts and other snacks that are much higher.
One thing I was kinda bummed about was how big the box is for only 4 Squeezups. I just felt it could be potentially deceiving for someone who is expecting large tubes of sorbet. I was actually able to fit 8 in the box with no problem. Maybe a smaller box or more Squeezups per box can be an option in the future for Jolly Llama.

The price per box may seem high at $4.99, but if you consider the cost of an individual frozen treat from an ice cream parlor or from a convenience store, the cost is not that bad. I'd rather spend the money on a healthier product for my son, than a filled-with-junk treat. Enjoy this healthier alternative with peace of mind from "The Peaceful Treat" company! Plus, there is a great deal out there so you to try out these delicious treats for yourself...


**Deal Alert!**

I learned that they used ACTUAL fruit! That was just surprising to me because the sorbet I've had is usually artificial in flavors.

I'd like to see them with an Orange flavor. I was surprised I didn't see that one.

I learned the name Jolly Lama came from the lamas he seen in Wisconsin, and the visiting Dali Lama. And one day the name Jolly Lama came about!
