Back To School Fruit Snacks + A Giveaway

Fruit purees have had an upgrade from the standard apple sauce. DOLE Mixations is a fruit puree fusing two or three popular fruits in each cup, a mix of sauce and diced fruit. They’re perfectly seasoned and ready to eat from single-serve cups. And because they are made for kids (even though parents love ’em too), they have built-in labels, making them lunchbox ready.

DOLE Mixations-2

The labels feature white clouds on a writeable plastic, so Jack’s DOLE Mixations won’t be claimed by anyone else. The flavor varieties include Apple-Strawberry Sauce with Apple Dices, Pineapple-Mango Sauce with Pineapple Pieces, Peach-Apple Sauce with Pineapple Pieces and Apple-Raspberry Sauce with Apple Dice, and they are all really good. We love the Pineapple Mango, it’s my personal favorite, and the Apply Strawberry is the boys’ favorite. We know what we’ll be packing into their lunch boxes in the fall.

DOLE Mixations-3

They are small enough to pop into their bags for a snack for shorter days, or with lunch for longer days, and are sealed so parents can take them along in a purse or gear bag too. Just remember the spoons, and you can enjoy healthy fruit puree anytime. They are non-GMO, have no high fructose corn syrup, or artificial flavors. They are high in vitamin C and naturally contain no gluten.

It’s sweet to write a little message for your children, or to let them write their own. How about letting each write a message for the next sibling, or all the kids can write an encouraging note to their sibling who is facing a big day… lots of possibilities.

DOLE Mixations-4

Win an assortment of DOLE Mixations

You know your kids would love to find these snacks in their school bags, because apple sauce is good, but apple with strawberry and apple with pineapple and peach is way, way better.

I participated in Mom Blog Tour at the Summer Fancy Food Show on behalf of Wendy’s Bloggers #MomBlogTourFF and received DOLE Mixations products to facilitate my review.
