The second week of summer vacation, and the snack choices have already lost their allure. If you’re already finding yourself looking for a healthy alternative to Goldfish that doesn’t warrant sighs of boredom, have we got the snack for you! Plum Organics’ Fruit & Veggies Shredz have the great taste of fruit without the high fructose corn syrup. After a week of ho-hum crackers and other portable snack foods, we were ready to give these delectable treats a try…and believe me, you didn’t need to twist the arms of my 8- and 4-year-old testers! Not ones to shrug off a fresh peach or watermelon slice, I knew these kids would be tough critics when it came to judging the fruit-taste authenticity. But after just a few bites, they were asking for more. Not only is Shredz’ texture unusual (bite-size strands make for easy access, especially for newly minted self-feeders), but the taste is refreshing, without being too sweet. Available in fun flavor combos like Rooty Blues and Super Apple, these snacks are a welcome addition to any lunchbox or snack bag this summer.
In a Nutshell: Bursting with kid appeal, these fruit/veggie snacks are mouthwatering and mom-approved.
