NEW Dole Fruit Bowls and CONTESTS!

NEW Dole Fruit Bowls and CONTESTS!

Mommy Perks recently received a sample of the new Dole Fruit Bowls Diced Apples in order to try them out. We were also sent a jar of the Dole Mandarin Oranges in light syrup. What could be more fun than sampling new products and sharing about that with our members? There is so much to share, too, so read on!!!

Many of us pack our kid’s lunches and we are always on the lookout for a healthy alternative to candy, snacks, etc. Something that our kids will eat and enjoy and hopefully receive nutritional value from. My favorite aspect of the new diced apples was the fact that they sit in light syrup and not heavy sweet syrup and they taste great! They are not soggy or mushy but nice and crisp and are cut small enough that even a toddler could easily enjoy them without any trouble. The touch of sweetness is just enough but it is by no means overwhelming. That’s great for moms like me who stay away from the fruit jars full of heavy, sugary syrups. I want the convenience of easy-to-handle fruit snacks for my kids but I also want to know they are eating a healthy snack with nutritional aspects – DOLE offers both.

Dole is now selling these new handy snack packs with diced apples, sold in packs of four. Each serving contains 45% of the daily vitamin C and 80 calories. My only concern was the 18g of sugar per container, however, all natural fruit contains sugar and personally, I’d rather my child get sugar from fruit than from processed foods.

These apple packs are small, easy to store and DOLE even has a new product that will carry the fruit bowls in an enticing little package! Stop by to order your Madagascar Limited Edition Marty, the Zebra, insulated Snak Pak, for just $4.99.

My own favorite DOLE product is the Mandarin Oranges (although the diced apples are now a close second!). I have used those for years in green leafy salads along with cranberries, walnuts and a light vinaigrette dressing. Actually, I typically make that with our Thanksgiving dinner each year.
