Our Pop Rockin’ Field Trip Experience With VitaPops!
Posted Sep 05 2012 12:39am
When we say field trip, it is almost always synonymous to fun, right? How about a Pop Rockin’ Field Trip?
A few weeks ago, we were invited to join a Pop Rockin’ Field Trip. I brought my two older boys of course and as soon as we hopped on the bus, the excitement begins!
The kids were treated with fun activities such as face painting and story telling, games and some dancing!
Moms, together with celebrity moms, Daphne osena-Paez and Donito Rose talked about parenting and how to be a seriously fun mom. Of course, health concerns were raised and the new vitamins in town, VitaPops, were also discussed. Dr. Liz Inciong, Associate Active Consultant at Institute of Pediatrics and Child Health, shared her knowledge on health and we were given a chance to ask more about VitaPops.
“To be healthy takes more than eating fruits and vegetables. Today, due to handling, processing and cooking, the Vitamin C content in milk, fruits and vegetables is significantly reduced so eating these foods may not be enough to attain one’s recommended daily intake of Vitamin C, especially in children. It is important that moms ensure full Vitamin C protection to keep kids always healthy so they can accomplish a lot of things and enjoy more time with their family and friends,” explained Dr. Inciong. “In addition, kids are usually exposed to high levels of sugar because they are easily drawn to sweets and candies so it’s important for the parents to manage their children’s sugar intake and provide them with healthy food choices.”
We were also given a few samples to try VitaPops. Although I was given a sample prior to the event, it was the first time that I tried it! And my son was right! It feels like some ants crawling inside your head.. and as he puts it: “The popping experience is so much fun”
Daphne and Donita were also introduced as the official VitaPops celebrity moms because they embody what the brand advocates– seriously fun goodness – when it comes to parenting and in the products they choose when taking care of their kids. Donita and Daphne are fun moms who prioritize their children’s health and consider what their kids will enjoy. They know how to strike the right balance between fun and healthy.
Daphne and Donita shared their thoughts on VitaPops
“I like giving VitaPops to my children but what’s more amazing is how my kids love it! They immediately liked it the moment they first tried it. They like it so much that they immediately told their friends about it,” shared Daphne.
“VitaPops is the most fun and exciting Vitamin C in the market because it comes in pop-rocks format — it fizzles and pops inside the mouth. This makes taking Vitamin C an experience that kids will enjoy, while ensuring that they remain healthy as it boosts their immune system,”said Donita.
What I can say about VitaPops?
It was love at first site, err taste, for my boys! They liked it so much and really enjoyed the popping experience. And to prevent them from buying candies at school, I give it to them as their “baon”. That’s two birds in one stone, vitamin c for their protection and a candy as a treat! Way to go Unilab!

Here are some FAQ for our mommies about VitaPops:
What is VitaPops?
VitaPops is the first & only Vitamin C in pop rocks format in the market that guarantees full protection while ensuring that kids enjoy the experience of taking it
Vitamin C: protection from sickness
Pop Rocks Format: fizzles and pops inside the mouth for an enjoyable experience
Is VitaPops sweet like candy?
VitaPops contains just the right amount of sweetness so that kids will enjoy its taste. The best part about its sugar content is that it only contains 1/5 the sugar level found in regular vitamins, which reduces the risk of tooth decay.
Is VitaPops strictly for kids ages 7-12?
Children as young as four years old can already take and enjoy VitaPops.
Can my kids get overdosed with VitaPops?
No, Vitamin C is water soluble so any excessive intake will just be excreted through the urine.
How is it different from Ceelin Chewables?
We know the challenge of dealing with 7-12 year olds, we understand the need of moms to continue protecting their kids from sickness and keeping them healthy without the difficulty of giving vitamins/healthy food. We need to reward kids just to take what’s good for them. Finally, we have exactly what we need with with Ceelin Chewables as well as VitaPops — available in fun format options which guarantee full protection. Both are yummy and healthy for kids and are in formats that they love: chewable and pop rocks.
Vitamin C in VitaPops comes in which form?
VitaPops is in a non-acidic Sodium Ascorbate formulation. It doesn’t cause stomach irritation even if it is consumed on an empty stomach.
What is the shelf life of VitaPops? Because it’s made of granules, don’t they get sticky and solidify after sometime?
VitaPops is best consumed within 2 years from when it was produced. Solidification happens when the product is exposed to humidity and moisture. To prevent this from happening, we recommend keeping VitaPops in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.
What makes VitaPops pop? Is that safe?
VitaPops is safe to take and is FDA-approved. It pops because when the granules that contain Carbon Dioxide come in contact with moisture, it dissolves and the gas escapes quickly producing a fizzing and popping sound.
Can my kids get allergies from VitaPops?
VitaPops is generally safe and does not cause any allergies. But it is still best to consult with your pediatrician.
How much Vitamin C can my child get from VitaPops? How does it compare to vegetables, fruits and milk?
1 VitaPops sachet contains 50 mg of Vitamin C and is equivalent to 5 glasses of milk / 28 pieces of calamansi / 1 ½ glasses of freshly squeezed orange.
