We’ve had some hot days here in Seattle and with them come the urge to have an ice cream or frozen pop. But since I started reading labels a few years ago, I’ve had to give up most every frozen sweet treat with the exception of an occasional organic ice cream. But ice cream doesn’t refresh the way that frozen juice bars do.
Still, I’d pretty much given up trying to find a frozen treat that passes my strict eating requirements. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been head deep into the recesses of the freezer at my local grocery store, desperately trying to read the labels on frozen pops, trying to find just one option that was artificial color- and artificial flavor-free. I know Popsicle® is an iconic brand, but have you read their labels? Scary! But thanks to a trip to my local Sam’s Club, I don’t have to resort to a chemical-filled ice pop to quench my needs.
Fruti Natural Fruit Bars
Fruti natural fruit bars are not only free from artificial colors and flavors, but they’re also Non-GMO certified and they don’t contain any high fructose corn syrup (I’ve been living a HFCS-free lifestyle for some time now). These are as close to perfect as I can get for my healthier way of eating, so they’re a treat I don’t have to feel guilty about!
These premium frozen treats are made with real fruit – chunks of strawberry, pineapple, shredded coconut, and more; not with artificial flavors that are overly sweet or chemical tasting. In fact, fruit is the number one ingredient in all of their bars.
There are four flavors in the Sam’s Club Fruti specialty pack I picked up:
- Pina Colada: 190 calories – pineapple, coconut cream, water, cane sugar, natural stabilizers (guar gum, carob bean gum, carrageenan), citric acid
- Strawberry: 120 calories – ingredients: strawberries, water, cane sugar, natural stabilizers (guar gum, carob bean gum, carrageenan), citric acid
- Caribbean Mix: 120 calories – ingredients: strawberries, pineapple, mango, passion fruit, coconut flakes, water, cane sugar, natural stabilizers (guar gum, carob bean gum, carrageenan), citric acid
- Strawberry Cream: unfortunately this flavor’s information is not listed on their website.
Each flavor is packed in its own box and each bar is individually wrapped. There are 16 bars total and my local store priced them at 9.88 for the box. At 62 cents a bar, they’re also affordable, especially because they’re made with REAL food. Instead of getting a mouth full of chemicals, I’m getting the most delicious and fresh flavors.
I didn’t think I’d like the bars so I planned on giving them to the neighborhood kids. One taste though and I tucked them up in my freezer. Next time I’ll buy another box for the kids…there was only one box in my Sam’s Club so I’m keeping these for myself!
Yes, they do have sugar and calories. But compared to the standard freezer treats these are such a healthier option. Fruti offers many other flavor combinations so check your Sam’s Club or Walmart to see what they stock near you.
Trust me, these are AMAZING.
