I'm not sure but they sure sound good! I don't think we have those in Canada.

I have an official LAWL Tip Card (for amusement parks) that says
Frozen Fruit Pop, all natural, any flavor, 1 pop equals 1 fruit.
(by all natural, I'm guessing they mean real fruit juice)

I found this rating at another site.

Best: Dole Fruit 'n Juice Frozen Fruit Bars, Strawberry
($4 for a pack of 6)
Testers liked the chunks of real strawberries blended into this pop, saying they tempered the sweetness and made for a more natural overall flavor.
Kid critics: "Yum," said one four-year-old, adding that it was very sweet apparently not a bad thing.

Edy's Whole Fruit Fruit Bars, Strawberry
($3 for a pack of 6)
Edy's (also known as Dreyer's) was a close second. It "tasted very much like fresh strawberries and wasn't too sweet."
Kid critics: When given the choice between this and a pile of strawberries, a 10-year-old said it was no contest. The ice pop wins. And it's not just a seasonal favorite. He'd take one "summer, winter, anytime!"

Breyers All-Natural Fruit Bars, Strawberry
($3.50 for a pack of 12 assorted flavors)
The few testers who voted for this pop preferred its "smooth texture" (no little pieces of fruit). Most found it below average.
Kid critics: When asked how many she could eat, a nine-year-old devotee told us, "About 20." Most were happy with just one and liked the "real fruit flavor."
