Win It! Stretch Island Fruit Rolls & Fruit Leathers

fruit snacks

When I was little, I would BEG my mom to buy Fruit by the Foot for my lunches.  She tried to explain to me that this was junk food, but I’m guessing I didn’t relent.  Now, I’m repulsed by the ingredients list on these things and find it hard to believe they’re even considered food.  Check it out:

Partially hydrogenated oils and artificial colors?  No thank you.  Luckily, there are better fruit snack options on the market these days, so when my own daughter is old enough to beg for packaged goodies, I’ll be able to make her happy without compromising her health.  Stretch Island Fruitabu Smooshed Fruit Rolls will be one of my go-to products, since they’re simply dried fruit puree but packaged in a way that appeals to kids:

    My favorite snack is Trader Joe’s trail mix! The one with M&M’s.

    I love trail mix. Preferably my own mix from bulk bins, but I’ll take the premade stuff with dates, raisons, coconut flakes, dried fruit, nuts.

    I love Stretch Island fruit strips! We try and buy a few every week. Strawberry and grape are the best!

    As for other snacks, I am more a salty person than sweet, so I like chips and cheese for good snacks 🙂

    I myself LOVE dried fruit, there’s a great mix from squirrel valley that I buy at grocery outlet at a discounted price, I also love fruit strips I just wish they weren’t so spendy, the only way to buy them at a half way reasonable price is to buy them at Costco, my favorite has to be grape it’s so soft and chewy. Even more than the other flavors.

    I love your fruit strips as a snack. I do not usually eat fruit. However, i can eat these. They taste great and are good for you too! Doesn’t get any better than that.

    Fruit leather and strips are great for snacking. One of my favorite things though are the Strawberry Lemonade fruit stars from NatureBox!
