Recently, I was asked to sample Edy’s Outshine frozen fruit bars. The ones I tried were less than 100 calories, made of real fruit, and are fat free. Basically the perfect summer snack.
Outshine bars come in many different flavors, but I decided to try strawberry, peach, raspberry, and their assorted box of no sugar added variety (black cherry, strawberry kiwi, and mixed berry). I like how they offer a no sugar added option for those watching their sugar intake.
Sometimes when I read review posts I wonder if the blogger actually ate the product they’re reviewing. So to prove that I did, in fact, try the fruit bars I photographed my proof. I had a little taste test session. This made me feel very official.
I tend to lean toward no sugar added products so I really wanted to try their no sugar added bars. I must say– they’re pretty tasty. The regular fruit bars are really good. They have great, real fruit tastes, not manufactured tastes that other fruit flavored bars have. Know what I mean?
My favorite? Strawberry. But I also really liked the peach. I’m not a raspberry person, but if you are, you’ll love the raspberry bar because it has a great raspberry taste.
If I had kids I would have taken them to the park and given them Outshine bars. I would have taken photos of them laughing and adorably licking their fruit bars. But since I don’t have any children (of the human species variety), I decided to do the next best thing. I used Jack, my dog child. No one wants to see a photo of me eating a frozen fruit bar. A photo of Jack eating an Outshine bar? Priceless. Just look at the blurred tail. He was loving the peach Outshine bar we let him sample. Jack kept trying to grab the bar out of Brad’s hand so he could run off with it and eat in peace.

I look forward to snacking on these refreshing, low calorie fruit bars throughout summer. I have a feeling they’ll hit the spot when it’s 90 degrees outside.
