First off, I will introduce myself to those who may not be familiar with me. I am the “lover” from “Cooking for a Vegan Lover, often referred to as the hubby or hubz. I’ve decided to help by lending a hand in writing reviews for products or restaurants for the blog. I may even write a summary of what we’ve cooked for the night on those rare occasions that I am the one cooking dinner.
I was always a huge fan of fruit roll ups, fruit by the foot and that “fruit leather” when I was younger. So, it’s fitting that my first post to this incarnation of Cooking for a Vegan Lover is a review of FruitaBu’s Organic Smooshed Fruit Fruit Twirls.
Fruitabu was kind enough to send us coupons for two free boxes of their products. I decided to go with the Strawberry fruit twirls to pack in my lunch or bring on our trips with us as snacks. The fruit twirls had a great taste. They weren’t too sweet and tasted like real fruit. The consistency was just what you’d expect for a “smooshed fruit” snack. It was soft and chewy and did not stick to your teeth like those chewy, plasticy “fruit flavoured” snacks that I enjoyed as a kid.
I am also still a kid at heart, so I definitely enjoyed eating the snack bite by bite as I unrolled it.
Having never had these before, I can definitely say that I will be buying them in the future to bring on my lunches or for hikes. These are a much healthier alternative as they have no added sugar, contain 1 whole serving of fruit and have just 80 calories.
Check our their website for more information on their products including nutriotional information and information on the company.
