I received two “Get it Free” coupons for Horizon organic snacks from BzzAgent in exchange for an honest review of the product. I got two boxes of Horizon Organic Fruit Snacks (Bunch o’Berries) free. The thoughts and opinions shared are mine.
When I signed up to be a BzzAgent, I just thought that I would be getting free stuff in the mail and then able to write about it … but this task took more effort on my part. Instead of receiving my Horizon organic fruit snacks, I received coupons and had to find the snacks myself.
Living with anxiety, grocery shopping is one of my least favorite tasks; there are too many choices and bright colors and people and sounds and oh my gosh I hate to grocery shop. But I did it.
I received two “Get it Free” coupons for fruit snacks and snagged two boxes of the Bunch o’ Berries flavor for Moo and I. If I’m going to offer my pre-schooler a treat, I want to know that it at least tastes okay before I offer them. So, I tried the Horizon organic fruit snacks in bunch o’berries flavor.
Pros of Horizon organic Fruit Snacks per the grown up
- These are easy to serve; the package is also super easy to open.
- No artificial colors or flavors.
- They taste like fruit.
- They come in cute shapes (cows and people).
- The colors aren’t obnoxious.
- There are almost ten in each pack.
- I can pronounce all the ingredients: organic tapioca syrup, organic cane sugar, organic tapioca syrup solids, organic white grape juice concentrate, pectin, citric acid, ascorbic acid (vitamin C), organic black carrot juice concentrate (for color), natural flavors, organic sunflower oil, and carnauba wax.
- They were free — though they’re regularly only $2.79 at my local supermarket.
Cons of Horizon organic Fruit Snacks per the grown up
- They are really sticky once chewed – stick in and to your teeth.
- The “natural flavors” ingredient is not my favorite … according to CNN, “Though natural flavors may sound better than their presumably chemical-laden alternative — artificial flavors — it turns out they are not actually all that different.” I’d be curious to know what types of flavoring is used, and how it’s processed.
Ultimately, if Moo likes these fruit snacks, I will purchase them again. For less than $3 a box, it’s a quick easy snack I can toss into her lunch box. Nothing is better than good-for-you “gummies!” as treat!
Once Moo tries these, I’ll add some more notes. She has some pouches and snack crackers to test out, too! Any questions for me about these fruit snacks? I’ll gladly see about finding answers!
