Princess Nagger and Little Dude are picky eaters.  Sure, like all kids, give them chips or anything that could go under the label as “junk”, their picky-ness goes right out the window and they’d be happy campers if I let them indulge every day.

Luckily they do enjoy a variety of fruit – give them an apple and they’ll chow down like they were starved for days.  Or give Little Dude a banana, and he pretends to be a monkey while happily devouring it.

Then there are fruit snacks.  If you haven’t read the labels, you might be surprised to see that the first two ingredients are corn syrup and sugar – which means that a lot of fruit snacks are pretty much like candy with a boost of Vitamin C.  Not as healthy as I’d like.  That’s why I was excited to see that Ocean Spray has come out with their own fruit snacks, with the very first ingredient being actual fruit juice:

So you want a snack your kids will love and that you can feel good about? With new Ocean Spray® Fruit Flavored Snacks, look no further.

Available in two delicious varieties (Assorted Fruit and Berries & Cherries), Ocean Spray® Fruit Flavored Snacks provide kids with the great tasting snacks they crave and parents with the confidence that they come from a good place.  Ocean Spray® Fruit Flavored Snacks are:

  • +Made with real fruit juice and natural colors* and flavors.
  • 80 calories, gluten free and contain 100% of the Daily Value of Vitamin C.
  • Available with year round Double Box Tops.
*colors from natural sources
+These Fruit Flavored Snacks are made with apple, pear, and cranberry juice concentrate. See package for a list of complete ingredients. They are not intended to replace fruit in the diet.

Both Princess Nagger and Little Dude love these.  So much so, I had to hide the boxes or they would have polished them off in just a matter of hours days.  They’re that good.  And yes, I did eat some myself – and had to hide the boxes so I wouldn’t polish them off in a matter of days.  Ahem.

How would you like to give them a try yourself?

  1. Are these not seriously the best things ever?!

    I found some on sale, and haven’t been able to substitute anything else since. The Assorted Fruit ones get me a kid willing to do anything I ask for some more. Those are the productive days… 😀

    I love it when a snack changes a mood, and I don’t have to feel like a turd for serving it. Best feeling EVER!

    I’m glad someone else likes them, too. I thought everyone was still all crazy over Gushers.

  2. I think I would totally love to try both flavors…Assorted fruits and Cherries and Berries!! The sound delicious!! It is hard to find a good fruity snack that isn’t all sugar that is for sure.

  3. I am definitely going to have to check these out. My girls eat fruit snacks every day and it kills me that they don’t actually have any fruit in them. While these wont replace fruit (and I wouldn’t want them to), at least they can be a little healthier than the ones they are currently eating.
