Fruit Bowl snacks have always been popular with my two children so we were keen to try their new range of Frollipops of fun shaped, fruit flavoured lollipops in two variants – Strawberry Rockets and Apple Snakes.
Made with real fruit and only natural flavours and colours, each lollipop contains 1 of child’s 5 a day!
Each lollipop is quite small and like a jelly textured sweet that is easy to chew. I thought my two would like the Strawberry Rockets best but it turns out they preferred the Apple Snakes. Miss M describes them as “Very tasty”. Mister B wasn’t as keen and prefers other fruit bowl snacks.
These are handy to take out and about as they are individually wrapped and won’t melt and of course a healthy option!
All reviews are my own and my family’s opinions and we received the snacks in order to write the review.
Fruit Bowl offer an incredibly appealing range of prepacked snacks aimed at children, with the bonus of being healthy, in fact most of them provide 1 of their 5 a day portions of fruit. There are various varieties of snacks from fruit shapes, to fruit peelers and fruit bars. There are also yogurt coated fruit pieces although these only count as half of 1 of your 5 a day.
My children’s eyes lit up when they saw the selection of snacks we received from Fruit Bowl to try as they do love their snacks and are keen on fruit.
The Fruit BowlFruit shapes come in jungle or sea varieties and both of these were a big hit with my children. They love eating them and view them as a pack of sweets even though they contain 1 of their 5 a day. Made with apple, pear, strawberry and blackcurrant juices and containing no added sugar, these really are a handy but healthy snack.
Their other favourite were the Fruit peelers, which come in strawberry, raspberry and blackcurrant varieties, these are easy to eat and peel down into six thin strips. My children were really keen on these and it’s such an easy way to boost their fruit intake in a day.
School Bars are a chunky, fruity bar ideal for pack lunches. My two did find these a little hard to bite and were ok with the strawberry and raspberry flavours but not so keen on the apple and blackcurrant variants.
Yogurt Raisins were a big hit with Mister B and he probably could have eaten them endlessly if I’d let him. He loves raisins anyway, so covered in yogurt just makes them extra tasty.
Being pre packed, I found Fruit Bowl snacks really handy for when out and about. They are also useful for pack lunches but I found them most invaluable when on days out at the weekend, after school activities and days with Mister B when he’s not at nursery.
I can always carry a few packs in my handbag, particularly the shapes and peelers in my children’s cases as these were their preferred options, but being fruit based they couldn’t melt or get crushed. All importantly though, I know that I’ve always got a healthy snack on me for them that I know they’ll enjoy. I’d definitely recommend trying Fruit Bowl if you haven’t already, a healthy option that kids love!
