Review: Stretch Island Fruit Co.

Have I mentioned how much I love it when food shows up at my door? Seriously, that has got to be the best thing about being a review blogger. This time I got to review some great fruit snacks from Stretch Island Fruit Co. Stretch Island Fruit Co. is a Washington State company (you know how I love those!) that started in a laundry room back in 1976. You'll be happy to hear that they've moved out of the laundry room, but are still committed to their promise of making fruit snacks so that people can easily enjoy fruit every day.

We tried out the All-Natural Fruit Strips and the FruitaBu Fruit Rolls. These are both great fruit snacks- Ethan loved the Fruit Rolls in particular. I tasted them and agreed with him. They were sweet and tasted really like the fruit they were made of. I liked them in particular because they are all-natural and have a full serving of fruit per roll. And all the sugars in them are ones that come naturally from fruit. This is a fabulous thing for a toddler snack!

I really liked the All-Natural Fruit Strips for myself. As I've mentioned here (endlessly, I know), I'm dieting and trying to get in shape and I'm always looking for good snacks. The fruit strips are only 45 calories, all-natural and each leather is equal to a 1/2 serving of fruit. This is a great snack in my book!

I've seen these products in my local stores, but they are also available on the Stretch Fruit Co. website. Go check them out!
