Pros: Organic, natural, made with real fruit
Cons: Really, really sticky
In full disclosure, I've only had one of these...I got a sample for free at the SF Green Festival (I think) last year. And I haven't eaten fruit snacks or fruit roll-ups since I was a kid...so perhaps my memory of how delicious (albeit chemically enhanced) those were. But I sure did love them.
In any case, FruitaBu is interesting. I like the premise certainly...a reasonably healthy alternative to those fake fruit snacks, made with real fruit, organic, natural, no added sugar, gluten-free, made in the US. All that jazz. Yeah, I like all that.
But goodness gracious. I tasted it but I couldn't eat the whole roll. I found it to be just too sweet for me, but beyond that, it was just SO sticky. I could hardly get it off the paper thing. And once I did, I could hardly get it off my fingers! In any case, it did not make for easy grown-up sampling. Perhaps kids might dig the stickiness...but it sure wasn't for me. And I have to admit...I did compost the rest of it. Wasteful, I know. But I just couldn't hack it.
Five stars for effort. Not so many stars for the rest....sorry, folks.
