Fruti Bars are a sort of frozen fruit smoothie on a stick, available in flavors like Caribbean Mix as well as Strawberry and Pineapple and other single fruit flavors.
For many people, the great thing about Fruti Bars is what they don't have:
no artificial colors
no artificial flavors
no GMOs (fruit flavors are non-GMO verified; dairy products aren't eligible)
no High Fructose Corn Syrup
They're also Kosher and have 100 calories or fewer per bar, not to mention vitamin C and fiber.
But my favorite thing about Fruti Bars is that they're delicious, with a luxurious texture completely different from the average Popsicle-style snack. Fruit is the first ingredient, and there are literally chunks of fruit in the bars. If you froze strawberries and pineapple and coconut, you'd get this flavor. The texture, however, is smooth and creamy, not icy.
You can feel good about giving these to your kids, and you can enjoy them yourself without regretting the indulgence later.
Only negative -- at least where I live, you have to go to Sam's Club to buy these. This may not really be negative, since it means that the price is lower than the average grocery store frozen treat.
