I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I love to eat! I really enjoy eating sweet things. However, those things are often not good for me. In fact, they are often not part of a healthy diet. Haha! That’s why I was excited when I received something new from Dole (you know, the fruit company). They’re called Real Fruit Bites. The Real Fruit Bites are little pieces of dried fruit covered in yogurt with whole grain oats on top. There are three different fruit varieties available: mango, apple, and pineapple.
I was lucky enough to receive a sample of each of the three flavors. I LOVE apples! So, I was most excited to try them. I am happy to report that they taste really good. Also really good was the pineapple. What surprised me was the mango chunks. I actually don’t usually like mango or mango flavored things. I tried them last and figured I would end up having to give them to my boyfriend. However, I was wrong. I really like them! I actually haven’t given him any of the mango. Haha!
While all three taste delicious, they are also pretty healthy for you. The mango chunks contain only 80 calories per package! Woot! I have been packing a bag of one of the varieties in my lunch everyday since I received them. They are a nice sweet treat that I don’t feel guilty about eating. Plus, I love that I don’t have to refrigerate my lunch or store it in any special way or container. It really is a convenient way to enjoy fruit (and yogurt). They are perfect for the busy mom, college student, or child.
All three varieties taste wonderful! They do look a little funny since they are covered in yogurt and have whole grain oats on them. However, once you taste them, you won’t give their appearance a second thought. Actually, you might have thoughts about wanting more after you finish the pack.
