A healthy and convenient snack - Buddy Fruits Review

About Buddy Fruits:
In summer of 2006, a french family was on a road trip in the U.S. While on the road, they were looking for a healthy fruit snack for their kids. Seeing that both healthy and also convenient snack solutions didn't exist yet, they decided to stay in the U.S and share their passion for good food.

Their Mission:
Buddy Fruits wants the world to become and healthier place! The company was inspired by a modern way of living, developing innovative products and the promote healthy behaviors whatever the circumstances.
Their mission is to provide a healthy alternative to snacking while focusing on the natural benefits of the fruits. The quality of the fruits is central to all their recipes and a fundamental commitment.

Buddy Fruits uses the flesh of the fruit and the impact on the texture and the taste is great. That is why they select their fruit from farmers they trust from all around the world. They only  use natural ingredients and you will never find preservatives, coloring's, artificial flavorings, genetic modifications, water or corn syrup in the Buddy Fruits products.


My Review:
I was given a lovely opportunity to review Buddy Fruits for my little brats, lol. 



I received a few more products than I had requested to try. As you can see from the images above, we have or should I say had the Buddy Fruits Smoothie in mango and skim milk, Pure Fruit Bites in orange and pomegranate, Super Fruit in raspberry & cranberry and blueberry & blackcurrant and the Pure Fruit Jiggle Gel in strawberry and raspberry. Whew! I think that's about it, lol. Oh shoot, I forgot to take a picture of the box that the packets came in. It was an adorable green box with a nice handle on it and it had all the packets of Buddy Fruits in there wrapped in some green tissue paper. I was going to take a picture of it, but I guess I forgot. Darn... it was a cute little box.


Here are my younger two eating some of the Buddy Fruit. I would have had my oldest in the photo as well, but he wasn't home. Now, to be honest, my kids didn't care for the Buddy Fruits at first. I was feeling the same way they were when I tried them at first to. But... drinking another sip, it tasted better bit by bit. I guess maybe it was because we've never had something like this before and the texture kind of threw me off. We've tried many snacks and nothing was quite like this. 

The tastes are definitely natural! You can tell that there is no added sweeteners and no artificial ingredients. They weren't lying when they say they added the peels as well. I noticed with the strawberry jiggle gel, there were some pieces of the skin in there. Not that that's a problem at all, lol. They do say that the skin holds most of the nutrients and the vitamins. That's what gives the product it's texture and added flavor. Out of all the Buddy Fruits we've tried, I would have to say that the Buddy Fruits Smoothie is the best. The delicious mango fruit combined with the milk makes the taste buds in your mouth dance. Sounds a bit dramatic and over the top, but I'm describing it the best I can here, lol. 

As for the kids, they went crazy over the Pure Fruit Bites. I thought they would have enjoyed the jiggle gels more, but I guess I was wrong. The fruit bites are a perfect snack that kids can grab with their hands. Almost like having fruit snacks, but better. I would have to say they are quite sticky. My youngest is a phoebe when it comes to his hands and whenever he had the fruit bites, he would flip out when he was done and want his hands washed, lol. I've tried the orange fruit bites and they were amazing! It was like biting into a fresh orange. Buddy Fruits are full of flavor, all natural and they taste great. My kids ended up finishing the rest of the samples in just a few days, lol. Kids love them!
