Parents, the New York City-based magazine published by Meredith Corporation, has released its Best Frozen Treats list, a “people’s choice” selection of flavorful and enjoyable pops, bars, and pints.
“Parents’ Best Frozen Treats 2021 list comprises tasty and healthy frozen treats handpicked by kids and parents that are sure to satisfy your sweet tooth and keep you cool this summer,” said Julia Edelstein, the magazine’s editor-in-chief.
Parents consulted families in the USA to test over 75 varieties of newly released frozen treats with 50 kids. Nearly 20 products that are all free of artificial food dyes and have parent-approved ingredients and portion sizes, made the cut. They are listed below by category.
