You Say Tomato, I Say Pop'rs!

Unless you've been living under a glacier (assuming you can find one big enough--poor dears!) at the South Pole, you've heard about the Deadly Tomato Salmonella Outbreak. OK, a tomato is a fruit, but Veggie Mom feels a close kinship with the juicy red critters. My kids are real tomato afficionados, too. It just breaks their Tomato-Pickin' Hearts that Mom's not acquiring these tasty treats on her bi-weekly jaunts to Ye Local Grocery Store.

But there's a Silver Lining here. First, the Good News. Not all tomatoes are affected--we can still pick up Cherry & Grape Tomatoes & Tomatoes on the Vine, all the while resting assured that our little darlin's will sleep well at nite. The Even Better News is that we can now introduce other yummy fruits & veggies to our families, with a fun twist.

You've probably noticed in my bio to the right that I'm a Mom who's committed to her family's health & well-being. I'm also related to Uncle Lynn. He's the Pop'r King, & boy, does he have some great suggestions for jazzing up that food that Junior & Little Miss turn their noses up at now & again.

Here are some Neat New Ideas for serving those delectable fruits, veggies & other yummy treats that The Family has gotten so close to over the years. The 8 different Pop'r flavors, BTW, come in fun 1-ounce shakers, & are available online at
  • Try Cinammon Pop'rs on applesauce.

  • Sprinkle Color Burst on any flavor of yogurt.

  • Chocolate's a super flavor on top of pudding.

  • Introduce Strawberry to your kiddos' cereal in the morning.

  • Raspberry is a treat with yogurt & ice cream.

  • Corn & other veggies take well to Butter.

  • Taco can't be beat on mashed potatoes.

  • Buffalo (as in the seasoning used on wings) goes hand-in-hand with brocolli & its kindred spirits.

Did I mention that these Fun & Scrumptious Seasonings are vitamin-fortified? Hey, if they get my kids to Eat Their Veggies, what's not to love?

Misty: You go, Girl! The kiddos really like Pop'rs, that's for sure!

Thanks for the info! I'll have to check the Pop'rs out.

We LOVE the Color Burst on cereal, pancake, ice cream, well...almost everything. And the Buffalo was really good on grilled corn, steamed brocolli and cauliflower. Those are the only 2 flavors we have tried but we really enjoy them.

Jenni said...

Sounds good, I may have to try some. I've been adding greens and carrots to our fruit smoothies. The kids love them!
