As the temperatures warm up (OK, I'll take anything above 45 degrees these days, please!), the sun is beginning to shine longer and longer. I don't know about you, but I think it's time to put away the cookie sheets, pie plates, and brownie pans and enjoy a simpler treat for the upcoming summer months.
BlogHer recently gave me the opportunity to try out Outshine bars -- a frozen pop that may have already caught your eye in the freezer section at the grocery store. Outshine Fruit Bars are actually those Edy’s Fruit Bars that I've been eating for years (lime has always my favorite), revamped, made with real fruit or fruit juice.
They come in 24 different delicious flavors in all. And the best part is that many are fat free, too!
Let's take a look:
It was hard to choose, but I decided to try out two different flavors for the purposes of this review. The first comes from the "Coconut Waters" collection (Pineapple) and the next, from the "Seasonal Fruit" mix (Peach). Like I said, though, there are many more, including raspberry and coconut waters with banana. And some unique seasonal flavors will be coming out in the next couple months, like blood orange and grapefruit, and many, many more.
I've never written about it before, but I actually have quite a habit of eating these bars after my long runs when it's hot outside. And by after my run, I don't means hours . . . I mean immediately so -- as soon as I get inside the house and take off my running shoes. It's a healthy and tasty way to get in some fluids after a hard effort.
But you can enjoy these bars as a better-for-you snack no matter what you've done in a given day.
As it says on Edy's website, these bars are made from "simple, honest ingredients that taste as good as they make you feel—and refresh from the inside out." You can check out more on their Facebook page.
