The Benefits of Honey in Shroomsicles™

Before we dive into the flavors, let's talk about why honey is a great way to sweeten our organic popsicles. Unlike artificial sugars, honey is packed with antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. It has a lower glycemic index than white sugar, which means it doesn't cause a rapid spike in blood sugar levels. Honey also has antimicrobial properties and can be easier on the digestive system. Using honey in our sugar-free popsicles not only enhances the flavor but also offers health benefits that you won't find in traditional ice cream bars loaded with traditional sugars and preservatives.

Each of our frosty pops contains no more than 8 grams of honey per serving, offering just the right amount of natural sweetness without overwhelming your palate. This balance allows the natural flavors of the fruit and other tasty ingredients to shine through, providing a refreshing and satisfying treat that feels indulgent yet healthy.
