“Since 1976 Stretch Island Fruit Co. has been providing tasty, all-natural fruit snacks to people on the go. Stretch Island Fruit Co. was founded in a humble laundry room on Stretch Island, Washington – where we put our hearts and minds into making life simpler, sweeter and healthier with our Original Fruit Strips.”
I’m always looking for things my kids might actually eat, that are also good for them. I must admit I have a HUGE sweet tooth. Fruit snacks have always been a weak spot for me. When I found out we got to sample Stretch Island Fruit Co.’s Original Fruit Strips I was pretty excited for my kids but also for me! Each strip is:
•½ serving of fruit
•No artificial additives
•No added sugar – all sugar comes naturally from fruit
The Original Fruit Strips come in 7 delicious flavors; Abundant Apricot, Autumn Apple, Harvest Grape, Mango Sunrise, Orchard Cherry, Ripened Raspberry, and Summer Strawberry. I’ve always been a fan of Strawberry so my favorite flavor was Summer Strawberry but my kids had different favorites. My daughter liked the Harvest Grape and my son liked the Autumn Apple the best. These strips are full of flavor!
I also enjoyed FruitaBü® Smoooshed® Fruit Rolls, these are great! My daughter didn’t want to stop eating them! Each roll has:
Stretch Island Fruit Co. is encouraging parents nationwide to join the Green Halloween initiative to “think outside the candy box” by providing trick or treaters with a healthy more earth friendly snack. I could not think of a more fabulous idea! I definitely think these snacks would be great to pass out on Halloween. Kids will get enough candy and these Smoooshed Fruit Rolls and Original Fruit Strips will be a hit because they taste great! It will be kinda nice to know I am handing out fruit but kids won’t be mad at us because they really do taste great! These snacks are a much tastier option then a box of raisins! The trick will be not eating them all before the Trick or Treaters arrive!
