Ice pops are a must during summer. I know - lots of sugar and not much else, but that's why I'm hooked on Power of Fruit Bars. They sent me samples to try and I was bowled over by Power of Fruit CherryBerry Bars - only 35 calories and 5 grams of sugars. That flavor is just so fruity and delicious, but there are other varieties, so I excitedly tried the Original All Fruit Bars.
The ingredients in these ice pops are strawberries, cranberries, blueberries, mango chunks, pineapple, bananas, white grape juice concentrate and water. You can certainly tell there is a lot going on flavor-wise - the ice-pops have a little sweetness and the berries are strongly represented both in taste and in texture as you bite into fruitybits very often, but the taste of the banana threw me off a little - I'm not sure I like 'nanas in my ice-pops. I still liked this flavor but not as much as the Power of Fruit CherryBerry Bars.
I received samples of Power of Fruit CherryBerry Bars for review, and these might possible be my FAVORITE ice-pops type bar. If you don't read the rest of the review, here's what you need to know: Get. These. NOW!
I can't even adequately describe how much these ice-pops (or fruit bars - call them what you will), rocked my world. It's tart and tangy and slightly sweet at the same time. But the best thing is that after sucking on these ice-pops, you'll come to bite on a piece of fruit ... a nice hunky chunk. This added texture is just amazing and adds a ton of interest in your mouth. You WILL be going mmm while sucking on this.
But what's even better - yes, it does get better - each 1.75 ounce Power of Fruit CherryBerry Bar provides only 5 grams of sugars and 35 calories, and 1/2 a daily fruit serving.
