Summer Must-Haves

Here are some of my favorites this Summer!

Self Disclosure: I received free products to facilitate this post. Images were also provided.


What is Summer without ice cream and frozen treats? Goodpop is a favorite of mine! GoodPop’s Fudge n’ Vanilla Squares are the first gluten-free, oatmilk frozen dessert square on the market that is 100% plant-based and gluten-free. They are 130 calories each and have only 10 grams of sugar. The squares are also kosher, and made with only fair trade, non-GMO ingredients. They come with four in a box and the suggested retail price is $4.99 – $5.99. Shoppers can find them in stores now at Whole Foods Market, Sprouts Farmer’s Market and online at the GoodPop shop. These are really delicious! I had the opportunity to try these and I will definitely be buying them this Summer! Goodpop also has ice cream sandwiches and popsicles that you will just love!

The Chocolate Vanilla Sandwiches were also a favorite in my house! All GoodPop products are USDA certified organic or Non-GMO Project Verified, dairy and gluten- free and made without HFCs, GMOs, refined sugars or sugar alcohol sweeteners. GoodPop treats can be found in natural and conventional retailers in 40+ states. For a full list of retailers, more information and to shop these new items, visit:

Sunscreen is another must this Summer! I never leave home without it!

No child wants to miss out on summer camp fun because of a terrible sunburn so don’t forget to pack the sunscreen! Protect your child from the harsh rays of the summer sun with Reef-Friendly SPF30 Mineral Sunscreen and Organic Sunburn & After Sun Gel. What makes them stand apart is the products are reef friendly and made of 70% organic ingredients. Available on Amazon Here

I really like that they are made of 70% organic ingredients and the sunscreen absorbs quickly.

Summer also means the kids may be home and fun activities are a must!

I love baking cookies and it doesn’t really matter what time of the year it is! But, this is a really fun one to do with the kids this Summer! Need a summer activity for the kids to do with a babysitter or grandparents? These linzer cookie kits from Erin’s Elderberries are a great option! These kits include step-by-step directions and ALL of the dry ingredients (USDA Certified Organic) and tools that you need! The Linzer cookie cutters come with it as well as your choice of jelly! I love that it includes a cookie cutter and really easy-to-follow directions!

Carbonated drinks are a hit during the Summer! This next product will make it super simple to have a carbonated drink on hand!


 Introducing Drinkmate, the first and only home beverage carbonator that can carbonate ANY beverage. From juice, tea, and water, to cocktails, Drinkmate quickly and easily adds the bubbly! I like that it is super easy to use and that you can even make slushies! This will definitely be a hit this summer with both kids and adults! It also doesn’t dilute the drink. I was actually surprised by that fact! It is available in four colors and costs $110.99. My favorite color is Arctic Blue! It is also available in Classic White, Matte Black, and Royal Red. It is a must for any get-togethers and parties this Summer! Includes the Drinkmate OmniFizz carbonated beverage maker machine, BPA-free 1 Liter reusable carbonating bottle, and Fizz Infuser.

My last, but not least Summer Must-Have is one for the adults! So, maybe Coffee isn’t just a Summer Must-Have but it is definitely a year-round Must-Have to me! If you have been following my blog for a while, you may guess which brand will be next since it is one of my favorites!

Fire Department Coffee Blueberry Cake Donut

If you are new to my blog, introducing Fire Department Coffee! They are a veteran-owned business that’s run by firefighters who sell high-quality coffee, with proceeds donated to help first responders that have become sick or injured while on the job. Now, how cool is that?! It’s super cool! But, they also have the best coffee! I just love the variety of flavors! I used to just use my K-cup coffee maker for coffee but I actually use my coffee pot for their coffee! Even though it isn’t as quick! They recently sent me some newer flavors to try and I am in love with their Blueberry Cake Donut flavor! It’s now simply my to-go-to coffee on a daily basis!

Peach Bourbon Spirit-Infused Coffee

Now, they also have non-alcoholic alternative Spirit-Infused coffee flavors! I recently tried the Peach Bourbon flavor and I really liked it! I have to admit I never have tried Peach flavored coffee so I wasn’t sure what to expect, but it is really good! Another great one to try is the Black Cherry Bourbon Spirit-Infused flavor! Both are sure to be a hit!
