As the mom of 3 wonderful children, I am always on the lookout for nutritious snacks that taste great and aren't full of chemicals and preservatives. This is easier said than done! Have you ever looked at the labels on popular snacks? They're chock full of ingredients that I, as a literate adult, cannot even pronounce! Now why would I want to load my children with these scary sounding ingredients?
In my home, we like to choose natural or organic foods whenever possible. That's why I was so excited when the nice folks at That's It contacted me asking if I would like to review their fruit snack bars. I immediately agreed, since these bars are made of 2 simple ingredients, and That's It: Fruit and Fruit! No fillers, no chemicals, and no preservatives. Just fruit in all its goodness!
That's It fruit snacks are only 100 calories per bar, which makes them easy on the waistline. They also contain 3g fiber which helps you stay full longer, as well as aids in digestion. Fruit also packs one heck of a punch, since it provides a natural energy boost. That's It snacks are also rich in Vitamins A & C and Beta-Carotene, which are antioxidant powerhouses. Their bars are also Kosher, Vegan, Gluten-free, Diabetic friendly, and will fit beautifully into just about every lifestyle!
I received a variety if flavors to try with my family. Included were Apples+Cherries, Apples+Apricots, and Apples+Pears. The bars are the perfect size for snacking, and are made purely of fruit! These almost taste like fruit roll-ups, only better. My kids loved them and didn't suspect for a moment that these did not contain the added sugars that other snacks often do.
I tried a little of each flavor as well, much to the dismay of my 11 year old and my toddler. They didn't want to share with Mommy! I especially enjoyed the Apples+Pears variety. I am a huge fan of this flavor combination already. As a matter of fact, when I make my famous Deep Dish Apple Pie with Crumble Crust, pears are my "secret" ingredient, since they lend a wonderful sweetness that balances the tartness of the apples.
That's It fruit snacks all taste exactly like the fruits shown on the wrappers. If you're eating Apples+Cherries, all you taste is the apple and the cherries! There is no artificial flavor added. These bars are chewy, delicious, and make a wonderful snack. Especially when you're on the go! I definitely intend to keep a few in my purse for that emergency pick me up while running errands. These are a much better snack option for my kids than stopping for a Happy Meal!
So if you haven't tried That's It fruit snacks, I recommend you pick some up for your family. These bars are tasty, made from honest to goodness fruit, and fit into any diet effortlessly. It just doesn't get much better than that!
