Also, I wanted to say that this is my first sponsored post ever! This blog has been a random collection of thoughts, travelogues, etc. And just as we have gone through many life transitions, so has this blog. I’m so thankful and super stoked about the new opportunities opening up through this blog.
Since moving to Vegas, we are always looking for ways to cool down! Besides the pool, sitting in front of a fan, or escaping to a nice air conditioned movie theater or casino, we love finding cold snacks and desserts. When we found out that Starburst had created Sorbet Bars, we were excited to try them.
We picked up a few boxes and brought them poolside. Now everyone knows that the pink Starburst are the best, so it was an obvious choice for them to start with that flavor. They are squared bars so they feel like a giant Starburst and they have a good balance of sweet and tangy. They also have a softer, creamy texture as opposed to popsicles, but are still light and refreshing.
Where to get them:
- They come in 2.6-ounce 4-Packs for $3.99 and 2.6-ounce singles for $1.49.
- You can pick up 4-Pack boxes at Wal-Mart and local grocery stores or singles at local convenience stores.
In partnership with Starburst, we are also giving away a few boxes! If you win, we’ll send you a coupon that you can take to the store to redeem so that you can try them yourself. a Rafflecopter giveaway
Stay up to date on future flavors and other Starburst products by following them on twitter and facebook.
What cold snacks and desserts do you like to eat to cool you down?

my favorite flavor is strawberry
It’s the best flavor! :)
My favorite is the strawberry banana tropical flavor.
I didn’t know they had that. :) I think besides the regular, I’ve only tried the sour starbursts.
So delish!! :)
my favorite flavor is strawberry!
oh, those looks super yummy! and perfect for the summer heat!
:) I know I’m going to be eating a ton of Popsicles when I get back to vegas!
Your dress is lovely, it’s no where near as warm here in Scotland just now as Vegas but I still love one of these in hope of cooling down
Thank you Sarah. What are the temps like in Scotland right now? :)
There in the low 90’s which is bit of shock when no where has air con, it never normally gets above 75, but no where near as warm as Vegas :-)
Love the dress Esther! You guys are so cute!
Thanks Jordan! :D
These looks really good! It’s been so hot here, I bet this would be refreshing!
Thank you Camesha! :) Give them a try!
These look delicious! How did I not know these existed?!
I think they are super new! I only found out about it a couple weeks ago! :)
Ummmm… now my mouth is watering. Pink Starburst are my favorite.
It’s the best flavour! :)
those look really good, yum!
You should give them a try! :)
These looks fantastic! My husband lovesssss Starbursts. This would be perf.
You should have him try and report back what he thinks :)
these look yummy! my favorite startburst flavor is definitely strawberry, with lemon as a close second!
Although the lemon starburst candy is not my fave.. I bet as a sorbet.. I would love it. I do love lemon gelato a lot!
Gorgeous photos! These things are delicious!
Thanks so much!! Have you tried them? :)
Super cute photos, and I love your whole look Esther!
Thank you Jessica! <3
that first pic of you doesn’t look like you. since when did you become a model?! =P
and the most important question of all is… since it’s sorbet does it mean it’s lactose free?! *hopeful*
haha I’m practicing with my growth mentality!
unfortunately it says skim milk in the ingredients. Even if you need a lactaid with it, you should still try it!
oh my gosh I love Starburst! In sorbet bar form though?? yummy!! Beautiful photos as always
Thank you so much Rebekah! :) I was really excited when I heard about it.
Yum! I didn’t know that starburst started making sorbet! We will definitely have to try some!
I think it’s pretty brand new! :) Please let me know what you think!
Congrats on your first sponsored post and yum! Looks delicious!
Thanks girl!! :) I can’t believe it finally happened!!
You look so cute! And the way you introduced your first sponsored post is so adorable and I loved it! I feel like a lot of people try to gloss over the sponsored thing and act as if this is just an everyday post that they would do anyway, but your excitement just puts it out there (which we appreciate and trust more) and it made me more interested to read what you have to say in that respect!!! I hope you keep that sort of tone with any sponsored content; feels more authentic and likable! :)
Thanks Erika! I always appreciate your thoughtful feedback. :) I also was wondering how this would come across. It’s so hard as a blogger, because you want to be able to earn a living so that you can dedicate eve more time into blogging.. yet you don’t want to be a sell out at the same time. I am super excited about sponsorship opportunities.. and I generally like everything laid out on the table too. No one wants to feel tricked. At the same time I just wonder by the 3, 4, 5.. etc.. if in general people tend to feel like you’ve sold out. I’m sure this is a common struggle with all bloggers.
I think it’s a struggle to work in content that isn’t just… what would come from the top of your head, even if the branding fits.
I think what’s worked, at least from what I’ve seen is:
+ a high ratio of original content to sponsored content
+ authentic and transparent sponsorship in the blogger’s voice
+ partnerships that make sense and that the blogger would be using anyway
I think just being upfront and saying why you’re working with brands and everything will really work and fit with your blog (like you’ve already done).
I know of some other blogs that I really loved that have recently introduced sponsored content that leave a little bit of a sour taste in my mouth. I think they try to make it seem as if they would have written the post anyway… but hmm, just doesn’t translate.
Anyway, monetizing is always tricky and involves experimentation. Still, I’m happy for you! :)
Oh man I need some
Give them a try and let me know how you like them! :)
I had no idea these existed! So cool, and love your dress!
I think it’s awesome that they came out with an ice cream version. Thank you! :)
I can give you all my yellows :)
I had no idea that Starburst came out with sorbet bars! These look so yummy!
I only recently found out too! :) I’m also a sucker for whenever familiar products I like come out with a variation or even new packaging haha
These look super yummy! :)
They were! You should give them a try esp if you like starbursts :)
That dress is FAB!!!
Thanks Mandy :D
Yummy! Congrats on your 1st sponsored post!
Thank you so much!! :)
OKAY miss supermodel! You look so cute and these are PERFECT for summer!
Haha thanks girl! It felt super uncomfortable shooting these, but I guess it sometimes comes with blogging. :p
YUUM! I want these!
:) did you enter to win some?
Well, obviously the pink one is the best. THESE LOOK UH.MAZE.ING.
agreed!! :) I’m so glad some of my fave candy makers are coming out with ice creams :)
Oh wow, I am going to have to get these stat! They sound delish! <3 I love strawberry Starbursts! :)
Get them and let me know what you think!! :)
YAY for 1st sponsored post! I had no idea they made sorbet bars, now I gotta get them :)
Thank you!! :) so exciting! And same here.. I just recently found out about them!
Pink is so absolutely the best flavor.
Oh, your dress is adorable–and your hat! I can’t get away with wearing fedoras so I’m always jealous of ladies who can rock them, like you :)
I just got the both of them for a shoot and figured why not wear it more often! :) I usually never wear hats either. Let me see you in one!!
Wow, I didn’t know these were even a thing! Will definitely have to seek these out. (The pink ones. Only the pink ones. :) )
I know!! haha I only like the pink ones too. Good thing these only come in pink.
I’ve never tried this, but these look awesome! Thanks for sharing :)
You’re so welcome! And thanks for stopping by and reading. These are brand new and I only recently heard about them too.
I’ve never heard of starbursts making a sorbet! I love the oranges, forever and always. :)
Same here!! :) Ooh I bet the orange sorbet flavor would be good if they come out with that next.
What cute pictures…you looks so cute in your hat and dress!
Thanks girl!! :) I just got them for another photoshoot, so I figured I would use them as much as possible :D
I love the cherry ones!!!! (:
Oh really? I could give you all mine! :D I’m usually really picky and pick out the pink ones.
My favorites are pretty much any of the red and pink ones. Although, I really like the green ones too. And yes, I’m horrible about remembering what the actual flavors are.
The green ones? I don’t think I’ve ever had the green ones before!
