This NOT That: Kids’ Snack
For this week’s This NOT That, I’m sharing a treat my kids have enjoyed for a few years and I really enjoy the simple ingredients!
Bear products are a clean snack, and these strawberry fruit rolls are our favorite! It’s a better option to a fruit roll-up or fruit snacks. And they actually taste good!!
Below I have compared the ingredients in Bear Strawberry Fruit Rolls and Fruit Roll-ups Strawberry Sensation flavor. I don’t think this one needs a big explanation. You know I don’t love artificial food dyes and that’s one of the big reasons we choose Bear products over most other fruit snack options.
This is also a great treat to take into school and/or for kids with food allergies. It’s nut, gluten, dairy, soy and egg free.
Okay, let’s talk price. We once again see a difference, with the healthier option costing more, but I’ve done some research and this is where I found them the cheapest. So $3.96 for the Bear Fruit Rolls (5 count) and $3.59 for the Fruit Roll-ups (but 10 count). So the cost is double. (Also, I love that we are seeing healthier options at a better price at places like Target, Walmart, Kroger, etc. instead of having to only get them at a specialty store like Whole Foods, where this product is listed for $4.99.)
Consider these next time you want to give your littles a treat that you too can feel good about too!
