A Boy and His Pop'rs...And a Great Giveaway!


Almost everyone out there in Bloggy Land is buds with Karla, AKA Z's Mom. You know, she of Zander & Me Fame? You may recall that Karla and Z-Man were the Grand Prize Winners in our Great New Pop'rs Halloween Giveaway. For a cute-as-a-button video of Z and his Pop'rs, Click Here!

Before I explain Zander's Passion for Pop'rs, let me remind everyone out there...You have until Sunday at 11:59 p.m. to enter our Great New Pop'rs New Years Giveaway. Here's the scoop:

  • First off, we're picking Five Grand Prize Winners. Each winner scores a complete set of Pop'rs...All Eight Flavors! ...and T-Shirts for the whole family!
  • All you have to do for one entry is leave a comment on my blog. The more comments, the more entries! Comment about anything...the weather, your family, my family, Pop'rs. The sky's the limit!
  • For an extra 10 entries, post about this contest on your blog, and send me the link.
  • The contest runs through 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, January 11, 2009.
  • Uncle Lynn will pick our Five Grand Prize Winners by Random Drawing, and I'll make The Big Announcement right here on Monday, January 12!
Anyway, back to the matter at hand. Z's Mom just sent me some awesome photos of Zander enjoying his Pop'rs. And some pretty sweet commentary to go along with the snaps! I'm just gonna let Karla tell the tale:

"So, I personally eat Pop'rs straight out of the container," Karla explains. "The Color Burst is my favorite flavor for that. And I like the Chocolate flavor in my milk.....Z does too, and that is what he is pouring into his milk in the picture. He is also pouring the strawberry flavor into some chocolate dip that he has with some cookie sticks. (I know...we're not so healthy here.)"

But wait...there's much more! "I have to be honest; we haven't tried Pop'rs on the veggies," Karla says. "He'll eat veggies without it when he is in the mood....he's very specific about what he wants to eat...when he gets something in his head, then there is no changing his mind.....so I don't get to experiment with his food much."

But that's OK, Karla! Z-Man is only 2, after all! You're really lucky that he's into veggies at such a young age. And extra special lucky that he's into Pop'rs, too!

And as everyone knows, 2-year-olds are not only particular, but driven: "Z's new thing is every time we go out to eat he wants to pour salt and pepper on everything," his alarmed Mama states, "so we have to hide them. I'm thinking that maybe the next time we go out I will take some Pop'rs with us....then he can pour to his heart's content and I don't have to worry about messing up his food.....I thought maybe the buffalo or taco...."

Great idea, Karla! Uncle Lynn, especially, loves the way you think!

And you know what another Awesome Idea would be? To enter The Great New Pop'rs New Years Giveaway! There's still time!! Let's Get Poppin'!!!

im terrible at technology so i dont know how to put the award picture you gave me the other day... how do i get the "my blog is pop-tastic" to be on my blog??

Z-man is adorable. And look at it this way - its a great "advertisement" for the benefits of pop'rs - if you can use them to get 2 year olds to eat "better" .... wow great marketing tool. There are zillions of 2 year old around (or so it sure seems)

Rachael said...

What a cute boy!! I LOVE that age, they are just so funny :-)

I am with Annie Kelleher at trying to figure out how to get my "poptastic" on my blog????

HELP!

Z's Mom said...

Oh look at that cute little boy....oh wait....he's MINE! :)

Thanks Veggie Mom....we do love having you as a bloggy friend.....and we love our Pop'rs too! :)

Love that Zander!! My Alex likes to eat poprs right out of the container if I left him. He's a sneaky one though...somehow he still gets to them. (could be that he's 14!!)

Ann said...

That little Zander is great advertising!

Debbie said...

What a handsome little boy! My 4 year old will love the Pop'rs!

Melissa B. said...

I love Karla & Z-Man...they've got GREAT TASTE, don't they?

Michelle said...

Oh how lucky and fun to have a two year old who loves veggies. And ummm yeah. I get that obsession thing. We're way into that here. Beef Taquitos are the big thing right now....

super cute.. we are starting real food now, maybe it's time for some poppers, is there an age range on these things?

Julianne said...

Oh my goodness, I have never heard of Pop'rs before, but they sound like so much fun. I have 3 kids still in the target age range...and the rest are out of it, but I guarantee you they would want to try these too! LOL!

Thanks for sharing these with us! Blessings to you!
