Yogurt-covered raisins are delicious to me, but despite the healthy-sounding name, they have little healthful value to them. The sweet yogurt coating contributes way too much saturated fat and is usually as thick as the raisin itself. I don't eat them too much now, but I still find the yogurt coating tasty. I was looking for an alternative and wondered if Welch's Blueberry Fruit 'n Yogurt Snacks would be just the thing.
The thin yogurt coating is just the right amount and still tasty too. Inside the yogurt coating is a blueberry-flavored gummy ball. The gummy part isn't much different from the typical fruit snack, but the yogurt coating mellows out the sweetness, creating a unique fruit snack.
The nutrition information was most important to me, so while chewing on a few of these snacks, I flipped the package over to look at the back. It seems that a serving of Welch's Blueberry Fruit 'n Yogurt Snacks (15 pieces) provides 90 calories, 3% of the daily value for total fat, 8% of the DV for saturated fat, 17 grams of sugars and 1 gram of protein. A box of 6 (0.8 ounce) pouches cost $1.99 at Target.
Fruit snacks tend to be full of sugar, and Welch's Fruit 'n Yogurt Snacks have 4 grams more sugars than Great Value Fruit Smiles (Walmart Brand) and about the same amount of sugars as Florida's Natural Au'some Blueberry Fruit Juice Nuggets. Of course, Welch's has the added yogurt flavor (and probiotic cultures).
Are you a fruit snack lover? I find that I can do without them, but there are occasions here or there where I'll buy a bag.
