Pop'rs to the Rescue!

Meet Mr. Man. He's a Pop'rs Fan. But before we get to him, I wanted to remind you that this is the last day to enter The Great New Pop'rs New Years Giveaway. Click Here for details. Uncle Lynn is picking Five Grand Prize Winners after the contest closes at 11:59 tonight, so you'd better get crackin'!

So, back to Mr. Man and his Pop'rs, that good-for-you seasoning that helps turn kids into healthy eaters. Mr. Man's Mom, Michelle, was one of the winners of our Great New Pop'rs Thanksgiving Extravaganza. Michelle blogs at Honest & Truly, and has some pretty up-front things to say about Pop'rs:

"We're definitely loving the Pop'rs around here," Michelle says. "They were great on my popcorn last night (I may make some Cinnamon/Butter for my husband tonight), and they're great on yogurt--Mister Man's personal favorite. We usually go through five of the eight flavors in a bowl of yogurt. He puts one (or two) on, eating the bites that have that/those flavor(s) in them and then adds more of a different flavor. Too cute!"

Mr. Man apparently has a Preferred Pop'rs flavor, as well. "Color Burst is his favorite," Michelle explains, "because it changes colors. AND because when you eat them straight from your hand, it turns your tongue blue. We love changing the color of our tongues. Gotta love being 5!"

Ever the observant Consumer Mom, Michelle has a couple of suggestions for Uncle Lynn, too.

"I would love to see the Pop'rs come in a larger size, as we're really going through these," Michelle says. "Also, for the four- and eight-packs...neither of the wee ones like spicy foods, and getting them to eat the Taco and Buffalo is a challenge (meaning it isn't happening). We may be in the minority (Mister Man won't do Butter, either), but have you thought about putting together a kid pack together with Cocoa, Color Burst and two of the fruit flavors? My husband and I will eat the Buffalo and Taco but don't 'need' the extra veggies...but it would be great to be able to get flavors just for the wee ones!"

Thanks for the suggestions, Michelle. And please thank Mr. Man for being such a Perfect Pop'rs Pal.

I have to agree with Mr. Man....Color Burst is my favorite that bad since I'm a LOT older than 5?????

Oh my--looks like Mr. Man must order 'em by the case!

Awww, thanks for the nice words about Mister Man. He definitely likes his Pop'rs and nope -- I don't think five is an age limit when we have to stop enjoying changing the color of our tongue. I confess to playing with the fruit roll up tattoos (I won't eat the roll ups -- yuck! -- but the tattoos are cool) :)

And now I'm embarrassed... I didn't realize my suggestions were going to be included. Those weren't meant to be seen as criticism in any way! So ummm yeah. I'm just embarrassed. And here I thought a mom couldn't be embarrassed anymore :) Shows you what I know!
