Rednexmama read the labels on so-called “fruit snacks” — those little packages of gummy fruit candies — and found quite a difference between brands:
I actually found super-yummy fruit snacks that aren’t just sugar under the guise of “made with real fruit.” (Seriously? Have you read the nutrional info on those? They’re candy. Pure and simple, whether they’re made with fruit or not.) But Florida’s Natural Fruit Juice Nuggets have only 50cal/pack compared to usually 140 or so, 10g of sugar compared to usually at least twice that, AND they contain 40% of your vitamin C! And even all of my non-mommy friends are hooked, they’re so tasty! Oh, and they’re nut and gluten free!
