Best Fruit Leathers in 2020



Welch's Variety Pack Fruit Snacks, 36 Count (Pack of 1) Review:


Possibly the most addictive substance man has ever produced. As far as I'm concerned it's impossible to eat just one pouch. However I can tell you from personal experience that eating 10+ bags in one sitting is not easy on your stomach or your general health. These are marketed as 'healthy' for you as you can tell by the front of the box that has many flashy colors that draw the eye and purports to use 'real fruit' and are just chock full of vitamins. A glance at the back of the box however will reveal the two main ingredient as fruit juice and sugar. Many MANY types of sugar. As long as you know these not fruit 'snacks' and instead should be treated as fruit 'candy' then purchase away.



CLIF KID ZFRUIT - Organic Fruit Rope - Strawberry Flavor - (0.7 Ounce Rope, Lunch Box Snacks, 18 Count) Review:


These are such a great alternative to all those other "fruit snacks" that barely contain any real, actual fruit. Simple- just a couple ingredients, no chemical additives, no corn syrup or extra sugars, no artificial colors. My kids love them and I do too. It's a nicer texture (in my opinion) than the tougher, chewier fruit leathers. And they're easy to pack in a purse or small lunch box.

Stretch Island Fruit Leather Snacks Variety Pack, 0.5 Ounce, Pack of 48 Review:


**Update: Since my review the company changed the packaging and apparently the recipe on these (the change was quite awhile back). I now find the Cherry flavor to be inedible (luckily hubby eats them!) and Apple to be one of my favorites. Still worth buying and eating 🙂

Old review: I was looking for a fruit snack made entirely of fruit, with no added sugar, and discovered these fruit strips. This package contains 6 different flavors, of which Apple is my least favorite and Cherry or Grape are my most. Yes, these are still processed fruit snacks, but, they're better than gummy bears (what I'm using them to replace), and with this brand you're eating actual fruit, not fruit flavors mixed with high fructose corn syrup. And that's a definite win!



BEAR - Real Fruit Yoyos - Strawberry - 0.7 Ounce (12 Count) - No added Sugar, All Natural, non GMO, Gluten Free, Vegan - Healthy on-the-go snack for kids & adults Review:


Ingredients for the strawberry packs are apples, pears, strawberries, and black carrot extract. No weird chemicals or added sugars here. That's not to say that there ISN'T sugar because there certainly is, but it's naturally occurring sugars in the fruits. In fact, most of the calories in this snack are from the carbohydrates (including sugar) and there is 0 proteins and vitamins other than potassium. So is it a HEALTHY snack in that sense? No. Is it full of carcinogens that will build up in your body over the many years of eating crap to eventually kill you? No. That last reason is why I personally purchased and enjoy these. They were not the texture I was expecting having grown up on fruit-by-the-foot. They're a bit tougher and chewier, and there are also often still some tiny seeds but once you get used to that, the flavor is delicious. They make great snacks at work, school, and on lazy weekends at my desk. Each comes with a cute "postcard" that I quite honestly toss after reading the cute info, but they would be a lot more exciting for a child probably.
The value is there too. For the strawberry pack I paid 8.99 for the 12 packs and each has two little rolls. It's hard to find that kind of price on GMO-free and all natural ingredient snacks, so I'm very pleased.
Overall, I'm in love with these, but for specific reasons. If you're looking for low sugar snacks high in protein and vitamins, this is not for you. If you don't care as much about the sugars and just want more natural food, look no further.
