SunRype Snacks - Putting Fruit into Our Busy Hands
As a Mom, I keep myself armed with snack options for the kids.
They always seem to be hungry at the worst moments. I do carry things like applesauce and fresh fruit, but if you have ever had a banana get smooshed and rot in the bottom of your diaper bag, you start to shy away from that sort of thing. I even found a rather mummified orange in a pocket once. Blech.
Sadly, junk food seems to have no expiration date and usually comes all neatly packed and ready to travel. Well, I am not ready to settle.
The folks at #SunRype were kind enough to send me a goodie box of snacks. It was filled with Just Fruit & Grain Bars, Fruit Strips and Fruit Bars. My kids can't have the grains, but I was more than glad to stash those away for myself. Hey, mama needs snacks, too!
The Fruit Strips were perfect for little hands.
My kids love their fruit leather and fruit snacks. I would love to tell you that I slave away and create them all myself, but the fact is... I'm pregnant, tired and busy. I do enjoy to make some of our treats using fresh fruit from our farm, but right now the trees, vines and bushes are pretty bare.
I always cringe at the ingredient list on the back of most fruit snacks. The SunRype Fruit Strips are 100% fruit with no added color or preservatives. It's just that simple. Speaking of that, the Fruit Source Bars were also 100% fruit. We all thought the Blueberry Pomegranate was delicious.
As for the Just Fruit & Grains Bar? Well, they were all mine. Sweet, but not too sweet. It contains 4 grams of fiber, so it was just what I needed in between meals on a busy day. Summer Berries was my top pick, but berries are my absolute favorite.
We still have a few of these snacks left and I plan to bring them with us on our upcoming family vacation. I know they will be the perfect, portable snack while we enjoy an active day at the water park.
Mmm... want to try it for yourself? SunRype has a Facebook BOGO offer you should check out and snag. Believe me, you won't want to have just one of these on hand.
