Orange Cream Pops Featuring Emergen-C

Where does the time go? I feel like school just ended and here we are preparing to go back! In our house back to school planning means many things- shopping, meal menus, extra curricular activity sign up and schedules. One of the most important things for me personally is preparing to combat all those germs coming into my home. Throughout the year I eat a lot of healthy foods high in antioxidants, but soon as August hits I am on an immune support mission. To help with immune support I enlist Emergen-C 1000 mg Vitamin C packs, convenient packets that you simply mix into water and drink.  This is perfect for me because I literally always have a water bottle on me. My husband- not so simple. He refuses to eat, drink or breath anything healthy. So I take the "hidden veggie" approach with him. I incorporate (ok, hide) the most healthy foods into recipes he enjoys.

That is how these Orange Cream Pops were born. A delicious way to get some extra vitamin C! Emergen-C is packed with B vitamins, antioxidants†, electrolytes plus more vitamin C than 10 oranges^. With over 20 flavors, you have plenty of delicious varieties to choose from.*

Walmart Makes It Easy

You can purchase Emergen-C at your local Walmart over near the Pharmacy area. I noticed they display Emergen-C in two different easy to find places-  1. with the vitamins and supplements and 2. near the ChapStick and cough drops (an aisle over at our location).  This is just one of the reasons why I shop at Walmart , they make it quick and easy to find everything I need.

ChapStick-  Right above the Emergen-C

While we were getting the Emergen-C a really cool ChapStick caught my eye. I like to keep them on hand because I am out in the sun a lot and my lips always seem to get dry overnight. The ChapStick I found is perfect for just that.  It is a 2 in 1 , 24hr Day AND Night Hydrating Skin Protectant  that softens and protects lips every day with 11 moisturizing ingredients. SPF 12 provides UVB protection. Hydrating formula contains aloe and vitamin E.

One end for day with SPF and the other with added moisture for at night. Totally a win win and a fantastic find.

Alrighty, on to my clever and genius way of getting my husband to eat something healthy! While helping to get our immune systems ready for the wave of germs that will be upon us soon!

  1. That I would have never thought of. Vitamin-fortifying your own popsicles - such a simple idea!

  2. I love the cream pops idea! It may be the only way I can get my son to take Emergen-C and I'm sure he'll need it once school starts. Cooler weather is coming and all those germs are going to be floating around.

  3. What an awesome way to get your Emergen C! I love this stuff for winter time colds, but summer and early Fall are bad, too! Making sure to get your vitamin C is SO important- I know hubby would love these too!

  4. What a unique idea to use Emergen C as. I love this idea and plan to make them up, try to keep us healthy during back to school season !

  5. Wow, this creation of yours is really cool! I like how unique (and healthy) it is, a great summer treat. `

  6. The cold and flu season is always rough on my kids. I need to have a freezer full of these. We can use all the vitamin c we can get.
