Snack Factory Fruit Sticks

Word of this newbie just came my way (and honestly, I suppose it was only a matter of time, given the popularity of veggie stix, right?!) I personally love fresh fruit because they are LOADED with fiber and good ol’ H2O, making for a filling snack.  But…sometimes you just want some crunch with your “sweet” and you don’t want to reach for a Nestle Crunch bar. . .

Enter these fry-shaped snacks, which come in three flavors:

  • Apple
  • Apple Cinnamon
  • Apple Strawberry

The stats for Snack Factory’s Fruit Sticks are as follows (for 0.75 oz. (about 2/3 cup)):

  • 80 calories
  • 0g total fat (0g sat fat)
  • 15mg sodium
  • 20g carbs
  • 3g fiber
  • 13 – 14g sugars, 0g protein
  • SmartPoints® value 4*

While they aren’t a sub for fresh fruit, they are – at least – a better option than grabbing some candy.  I am thrilled that companies are trying to be a little bit more health conscious these days, and offer more options for anyone wanting to proactively head off a craving. These are available in Walmart, Kroger, and Giant Eagle, among other retailers. You can also snag them on Amazon, which is always a great option when a product is new (and slowly making its way into stores!)
