Our newest review is for Whole Fruit Smoothie’s, of which is a fairly new product that you can find in the frozen section of your grocery store. The smoothie’s come in three different flavors: Strawberry Banana, Pineapple Mango, and Mixed Berry. You may have seen Whole Fruit products prior to this review in the form of Fruit Bars or Sorbet; however, we’re pretty sure you’ve yet to read up on the newest addition to their Whole Fruit line. J&J Snacks says, “Whole Fruit Smoothies are made with chunks of real fruit and bursting with a refreshing taste. Get all the taste & quality with better-for-you benefits”. We were excited to try out these little smoothie cups, because they sound and look refreshing, in addition to only have 100 calories per cup. To learn more about Whole Fruit, be sure and head to their web-site for more information on their existing line of products, as well as their brand new line of Whole Fruit Smoothie’s.
The first flavor we tried out was their very refreshing sounding Strawberry Banana smoothie, which actually does contain bananas and strawberries in it. As you can see from the picture below, the smoothie is quite thick and more along the lines of Italian ice. If we’re just talking about the flavor though, this smoothie simply tastes like strawberries and bananas with just a bit of milk mixed in to make things a bit richer. We were afraid this smoothie would be too sweet, but it’s actually right in the middle on the spectrum of being too sweet and not sweet enough. Being frozen, it allows you to take your time eating this smoothie, making for a nice afternoon snack. Next, we tried out their Pineapple Mango smoothie, and our testers thought this flavor was equally as tasty as the first one we tried out. The pineapples and mangos are the only ingredients you taste, but in the case of a pineapple mango smoothie, that’s a good thing. Lastly, we tried our hand at their Mixed Berry concoction, which contains mostly blueberries, strawberries, and a few ingredients we didn’t really care for. The flavor was good, just like the rest of the flavors we tried out, which means you should to expect to find the same quality with this flavor. The texture of all the smoothies is the same, so just expect to find that Italian ice aspect running throughout each of the three flavors from this line of Whole Fruit Smoothies. If you’re a stickler for healthy ingredients, than a few of the items in these smoothies might not be for you; however, if you’re strictly looking for a great tasting frozen smoothie, we recommend you check out these new Whole Fruit Smoothies. Overall (4 out of 5).
The pros are that they have 3 flavors to choose from, you can find them at grocery stores nation-wide, the flavors are good, the textures are good, and it’s an overall decent product.
The cons are that they have a bit of added sugar in them.
