if I could give 0 stars I would –
The product doesn’t taste good. Amazon is horrible to work with.
Neuro Toxin FREE!
Great bunny snacks but go with the variety packs
Our family loves these organic gummy snacks. Delicious real fruit tastes.
Last batch Amazon sent arrived with gummies melted & way too soft
Great Fruit Snacks!
Another great fruit snack to try if you like this texture is Ocean Spray brand. They are not organic, but they are less than half the price of these. Mott’s Medley’s all natural fruit snacks are yummy as well and are made with both fruit and vegetable juices! The Mott’s ones are also not organic, and not quite as soft as the Ocean Spray or Annie’s, but again, much less expensive.
Why use can sugar when you don’t need to?
Ingredient #1: Organic Tapioca Syrup-this appears to be a great alternative to high fructose corn syrup and other sugary additives. Here’s what I pulled up about this ingredient-” Tapioca syrup provides the sweetness needed in a natural way. Produced from tapioca starch using a natural fermentation process, tapioca syrup is a gluten-free and non-GMO (genetically modified organism) alternative to corn syrup, sugar, honey, maple syrup and molasses.” […]
Ingredient #2: Organic cane sugar-this is just sugar. It’s organic, so it wasn’t grown using pesticides or anything, but sugar is sugar and I try to limit it as much as possible. I’m bummed that this is the 2nd ingredient.
The rest of the ingredients aren’t really a big deal to me, but here they are: Organic Tapioca Syrup Solids, Organic White Grape Juice Concentrate, Pectin, Citric Acid, Ascorbic Acid, Color (Black Carrot Juice Concentrate), Natural Flavors, Sodium Citrate, Organic Sunflower Oil, Carnauba Wax (From Palm Leaves).
So why am I let down by this product? There are tons of great tasting fruit snacks out there that don’t use any extra sugar to sweeten them. Stretch Island Origional Fruit Leathers don’t use any extra sugars, here’s the ingredients of their summer strawberry fruit leather- “Apple Puree Concentrate, Pear Puree Concentrate, Strawberry Puree, Organic Natural Strawberry Flavor, Lemon Juice Concentrate. All Sugars Are Found Naturally In The Fruit.” Clif sells their Twisted Fruit rope that has no added sugar. Archer Farms sells a fruit snack for a great price that has no added sugar.
So the Annie’s Organic Fruit snacks are a great tasting snack that is far above those icky artificial brands that are loaded with artificial dye’s and sugar, but I still think there’s some room for improvement by using only fruit to sweeten it, rather than cane sugar.
By far the tastiest fruit snack!
Shipping was fast and reliable, and the 4 box deal is nice. New favorite candy.
Excellent Flavor, Excellent Healthy Alternative
I know some people may compare these with the mainstream fruit snacks that you can purchase in any grocery store and be reluctant at the smaller “quantity” contained in each pouch. The idea here is that the quality of the product, nutritionally at least, far outweighs any size issues. This is a problem with American societies misconception that more is better. Like ‘Super-sizing’ your fast food value meal, portion sizes have been getting larger and larger over the years and people are now expecting to receive the most bang for their buck, regardless of its lacking nutritional value. These .8 oz pouches are a perfectly decent portion size for a growing child, a diabetic with low blood sugar, or anyone that wishes for a small taste of something sweet and natural.
I highly recommend this product, although some people may wish to try the assorted flavors rather than limit themselves to one flavor (as I prefer).
