Thats It Fruit Bar

Have you seen many food products with less than 3 (or even 5) ingredients? I haven't, so I was quite intrigued when That's It let me know about their fruit bars. Fruit is the ONLY ingredient, so the Apple and Pear Bar for example, only has apple & pear in the ingredients list! That's It!

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 1 bar (35 grams)
Calories: 100
Total Fat: 0%
Saturated Fat: 0%
Sodium: 15 mg, 1%
Carbohydrates: 27 grams
Fiber: 3 grams, 12%
Sugars: 24 grams
Protein: 1 gram

And the bar is amazingly tasty. It's a little sticky - all the more fun to tear off a piece and eat it. The apple and pear flavor is a little mild in the taste department, but I liked it - fruity and not too sweet in taste- surprisingly. Of course, since it is just fruit in the ingredients list, you know there's going to be quite a bit of sugars.

Each 35 gram That's It Apple + Pear Bar provides 100 calories, no fat, 1 gram of protein, 3 grams of fiber (12% of the daily value) and 24 grams of sugars. That's a little less calories than the same amount of Stretch Island Fruit Leathers.

That's It Fruit Bars are available for sale on their website, at $19.99 for a box with 12. Personally, I wouldn't consume such a product as just a snack - too much sugar - BUT it would be a great substitute for something you're eating that has just as much sugar & lots of fat - i.e. candy AND oh my, this is great during a long run or some other endurance activity. I only use gels, so I'm used to having to chew a little - and although I doubt I'll ever give up my Powerbar Energy Blasts, this made a nice "real food" addition to a recent "brick" workout (run-bike-run).
