Shake, Rattle, Roll hop Sponsor Spotlight: Buddy Fruits

My daughter loves fruit. I love that she enjoys them but sometimes it is messy to bring along fruit with us when out and about. Sometimes it seems easier to bring along chips, cookies, and other junk food. Thankfully Buddy Fruits allows me to bring along the goodness of fruit wherever we go.

As you can see from the video below my daughter is excited to get "Squeezies" in the mail.

Squeezing out the last little bit.
We received a variety of pouches. They have 100% fruit pouches in Apple & Banana, Apple & Cinnamon, Apple & Strawberry, Apple & Multifruit, and Mango, Passon & Banana. My kids loved all of these flavors. They also have Fruit Smoothies which are blended fruit and skim milk. Those flavors include banana, peach, and mango. Again my kids enjoyed all of them. I tried the banana flavor and it tasted good, but I think it would be even better cold. Kids don't seem to care whether the product was warm or cold. They devoured them and wanted another. They would have eaten all of the display case within a couple of days if I would have let them.  We also got to try the fruit bites. Fruit bites are available in Orange, Apple, Raspberry, and Pomegranate & Acai. Fruit bites are made of 100% fruit, unlike most fruit snacks available today.

My daughter has never liked any fruit snacks. She did try these ones, however this is still a no go with her. She just doesn't like the squishy texture of the fruit bites. My son on the other hand loved them. He was able to chew them without any problems and I like that they are healthier for him. These are not quite as mess free though. Maybe that's because my 22 month old doesn't leave them in his mouth like he should. He also slobbers on his hands. So these did produce a little mess on his fingers and anything he touched. However it washed up just fine. I also think the mess was less than with other fruit snacks he has had in the past.

I love that these pouches or fruit bites contain 1 of your daily servings of fruit. Again with my kids they could easily eat 2-3 of these at a time if I let them. So it is a super easy way to get in your daily servings. It is portable and can go with you. Great for packing in lunch boxes, diaper bags, stashing in the car, etc. No need to worry about a spoon. Just squeeze and enjoy. Not only is it convenient but is also less messy than taking along applesauce, canned fruit, or a piece of fruit.

Buddy fruits is available at stores such as Walmart and Fry's. Guess what else? You can get it in your Chic-Fil-A kids meal? I think that is awesome. Now my kids have a healthy treat they love as part of a kids meal.

My only wish? I'd love even more flavors available. Especially would love if they could make a fruit/veggie mix to add needed veggies to my kids diet. I also wish that I could buy this at Sam's Club or Costco to save even more money. My kids go through this super fast. I'd love to buy in bulk to save on cost.
