If you like limeade (or lemonade, for that matter), you've got to try Edy's Whole Fruit Lime Fruit Bars. These bars have so much going for them: they're huge (each weighs in at a full 85 grams), they're delicious, and they're low-calorie. Furthermore, for those who avoid artificial sweeteners, you can rest assured that these don't contain any of that stuff.
I was first turned onto Edy's fruit bars by my dad. He gets the strawberry ones, but I've always been partial to citrus, so I bought a 6-pack box of the lime ones for $3.49 from FreshDirect (a NY grocery delivery company). The lime flavor was spot-on (probably because it contains real lime juice!), and it wasn't overly sweet. Some of the thoughts going though my head as I ate one of these bars: refreshing and tart, perfect to both quench my thirst AND satisfy my sugar craving, so delicious .
Let's talk nutrition facts. Each 85 gram of Edy's Whole Fruit Lime Fruit Bar provides 80 calories, no fat o protein and 20 grams of carbohydrates, 19 grams of which are sugars. There is also 25% of the RDA for Vitamin C. The ingredients are: water, sugar, lime juice from concentrate, citric acid, citrus pulp, natural flavors, guar gum, carob bean gum [thickeners], lime and lemon peel, ascorbic acid (Vitamin C), Yellow #5, and Green #3.
As you can tell, I have one word for these bars - delish! I'd love it if they were cheaper (hopefully it'll go on sale soon) and had less sugar (had because lime is not exactly a "sweet" fruit), so I might have to go with some other flavors, like the Edys Frozen Coconut Fruit Bars - but this brand is a fantastic buy.
