I recently had the chance to try out a new product from Dole, the Dole Real Fruit Bites.Â These are made from real dried fruit, and then are coated with a yogurt and oatmeal mixture.Â The fruit bites come in three flavors, apple, pineapple and mango and are packaged in handy pouches for single servings.Â My kids love to have these kind of handy snacks for grabbing when they are on the go.Â My daughter always needs a quick, no messy snack to take with her to ballet class, and these are a great size.Â Plus her dance teachers will lecture her on nutrition if she brings something junky, so she needs snacks that are both convenient and nutritious.
These are the apple bites, which are my kidsâ€™ favorite of the flavors.Â They are chewy, taste mostly like dried apples, and are pretty sweet.Â The pineapple and mango flavors taste good too, and arenâ€™t quite as sweet as the apple ones, which is probably why the kids prefer the apple.Â I like the mango best, which makes sense since mangoes are one of my favorite fruits.Â Each pack of fruits is about 90 calories, and they are a great choice for when you want something sweet and chewy.
To celebrate the launch of this new product Dole is running a great Facebook sweepstakes, the â€œ3 Steps to True Bliss.â€ To enter head to www.facebook.com/Dole for the chance to win a dream destination getaway.Â Dole has also offered to give a monthâ€™s supply of Fruit Bites to one of my readers!
