The first things I pass when I walk into my local grocery store are the sale bins. Usually it is stuff I don’t buy because of the size or nutritional value (regular Gatorade, boxes of cereal, 5 lb bags of rice, etc). Sometimes soda or the sandwiches thins I use for my sandwiches are on sale so I always swing by just in case. I mean, every girl likes a sale right?
Last week something new caught my eye. I wasn’t sure what it was exactly, but I spotted small pouch with a picture of fruit on it. The nutritional label looked good for a potential low treatment with about 15 carbs each and the flavors sounded yummy (and remember they were on sale!) so I picked up a few.
Buddy Fruits are a fun all natural way for me to get closer to the daily recommended amount of fruit. The Pure Blended Fruit pouches have the consistency of applesauce but taste much much better (probably because there is no dairy, gluten, artificial preservatives, colorings, or genetic modifications).
They technically weren’t designed for it, but they seem to also be a great way to treat a low. I keep them in the fridge and they were a nice treat especially after exercise. Much tastier than a boring juice box and the same amount of carbs. I tried the apple + banana and the apple + multifruit combinations (there is a workout “superfruit” version I haven’t tried yet).
Of course, now that I’ve found something I enjoy, I couldn’t find them at all at the store this week. Looks like I might be ordering online.
No disclosure necessary but if a box of Buddy Fruits showed up at my door I certainly wouldn’t complain.
