Better for You Jello – it’s Simply Gelightful! #Giveaway

After seeing my “Healthier in ’17” posts, Natalie, the mom behind Simply Gelightful, wrote to me. She recently launched Simply Gelightful, “the world’s first better-for you gelatin mix.” The product was inspired by her desire to provide a healthier alternative to jello that’s “just as delicious, colorful and fun” for her kids. When she didn’t find any good options on the market, she made her own!

Natalie’s company is called Rainbow Snack Co. because her “kids love rainbows.” More importantly, she “wanted to prove that food doesn’t need to be artificially colored in order to be beautiful and bright.” She also thinks (and I agree) this is a great treat for kids and adults alike.

Simply Gelightful contains 30% less sugar than the leading brand. It’s a good source of fiber and vitamin C, too. It contains no artificial ingredients, is certified gluten free and kosher. It currently comes in two flavors: blueberry and orange.

I gave some of my samples to Pam to make for my fave kid testers, Reese and Ryan. She said, “my kids both LOVED the gelatin. Reese called it “wiggly, giggly and delicious” and “the best thing I ever tasted.” Ryan finished his bowl, held it up and yelled “mah-mah-mah-mah!!” (that’s “more” in 2-year-old speak).” She told me that she’d definitely be buying more and loves the fact that it has less sugar and no artificial colors.

After reading that rave, I made some for myself. I have to agree, it’s delicious. I love the fact that it is the color of blueberries and it tastes like blueberries. Some blue foods are just plain scary – not this one! My mother-in-law still makes jello molds – this could be a real game changer for her!

I love that it’s the same color as the real blueberries!

You don’t have to take our words for it! Natalie offered to send two lucky winner each 2 packets of Simply Gelightful (one blueberry and one orange). Please use the Rafflecopter below to enter.
