When I’m at work for 10 hours a day, I need snacks to sustain me. I abhor snacking on junk and really try to stick to my staples of granola, yogurt and fruit. When I learned about That’s It. Fruit Bars. I was intrigued.
That’s because the only ingredient is fruit. That’s it, just fruit.
Currently, their flavors are: Apples & Cherries, Apples & Pear, Apples & Apricot.
So in each bar, there’s just two ingredients, the two fruits. There are no preservatives, purees, concentrate, added sugar, GMOs or nuts. In that case they’re kosher, vegan, gluten-free and high in fiber. Each bar ranges, but they’re right around 100 calories per bar.
My only question? I’m not sure how the bars stick together. It’s proprietary information (I asked). The bars filled me up and were tasty with a chewy, almost sticky-like consistency. You got chunks of fruit in each bite and they had great flavor.
I always love the back story to any product and when I inquired, I was touched that the co-owners are a mother and son team. The son is a MD and he was driven to create something on the market that is healthy as a snack.
You can buy the bars online directly from their site here and you’re getting the inside scoop because the bars are slotted to be released to stores (Hy-Vee) this month, in Bristol Farms in December and Whole Foods nationally in January 2012. Also, you could enter in the giveaway here to try them yourself 🙂
