Summer is an on the go time. From sports, to vacation, to the pool families are always on the go. And with that comes the “I’m hungry” every parent knows they’re going to hear every 5 minutes and usually the “Hi Hungry, it’s nice to meet,” doesn’t work so you have to have food readily available. Checking out some of the latest snacks is kinda scary with the lack of nutrition.
Mott’s has found a way to make snack time a little better and easier for us all… in packet form! Mott’s Medley fruit snacks are available in Berry and Assorted Fruit varieties.They’re made with real fruit and vegetable juices and colors from natural sources. The box doesn’t say exactly how much juice it contains (at least not that I could find) but I guess some is better than none. The sugar content is still 12 grams a pouch but is probably pretty reasonable if the juice rate is high.
It’s hard to break the mold on fruit snacks, they’re either gummy like or a softer type. Mott’s are a softer like snack and have a similar consistency to some other juice ones. I wonder if the juice content in them makes them that consistency. Packing wise I think they have a good amount in each pack and they seemed to stay pretty consistent.
My mom take: they tasted like a fruit snack. I prefer the gummy kind and will only eat the strawberry ones. While they were flavorful, they aren’t quite the consistency I like. Mr. IT on the other hand is eating a pack as I type this and says they’re pretty good. Fruit snacks are like anything else you either like it or ya don’t.
The monsters take: they don’t have cartoon characters on them but they still enjoyed them and had no problems chowing through the boxes we received. They have also asked for them again.
