Hello July! Are you enjoying your summer temperatures already? Just this week, we started with a 107F here in New Jersey. With the high temperatures and humidity, there’s no more denying that the peak of summer is here. Speaking of hot weather, one of the most common questions I get this season from fellow food allergy parents is what type of frozen treats to I give my kids. Well, here it is — Philly Swirl.
Philly Swirl has been my food allergy kids’ best friend for years. I can still remember the first time we discovered these colorful treats. While I was reading the labels of non dairy milk cartons, one of my boys who’s looking through the glass case of frozen novelties said “I wish I could have ice pops again.” Without even thinking, I asked and they replied,
“Is it gluten free? Yes!
“Dairy free?” Yes!
“Nut free?” Yes!
“Soy free?” Yes!
“Egg free?” Yes!
Are you sure? …. Yes!
I got really curious and headed their way. Can this be really true? Then after a thorough examination of the ingredient list, I gave in and grabbed a box of the Swirl Stix. The rest is history.
So, what makes Philly Swirl a big hit in our family? Well, aside from being food allergy friendly, these frozen treats are packed with flavor. Since each is made by combining two or even three types of Italian ices that go well together, one can expect a variety of flavor punch in each bite or scoop.
Child#1 and I are crazy over the Orange Dream as it reminds us of a Creamsicle. Child#2 loves the Cotton Candy and Mystery flavor. The Dad (yup, he likes these a lot because it’s also fat free) enjoys the sour notes of Very Berry and Applelicious. As for the two boys, well, they like them all!
Another thing that we love about the Swirl Stix, Swirl Cups and Swirl Poppers is its smooth and almost creamy texture. While most ices and ice pops get really hard and actually turn into solid ice, these Philly Swirls remain smooth and silky. No breaking of teeth or plastic spoons here.
Now, here’s something really exciting. The generous people from Philly Swirls would like to give a nice treat to Five (5) TFM Friends. Each of those 5 lucky readers will receive a VIP Coupon to personally enjoy their favorite Philly Swirl product. Isn’t that cool?
