Kids and Allergies: Mott’s Fruit Chews

Submitted by on Sunday, 8 June 2008 No Comment
Originally publish Nov. 15, 2007, WHAT: Mott's All Natural Fruit Snacks WHAT: Dye-free and peanut safe. THE APPEAL: After a year of hopefully reading fruit chew labels, only to find the evil Red 40 or Yellow 5 in all of them, I finally scored with this product. It’s not going to be a staple in their diet, but at least it’s a chance for Big Guy to have what other kids do. COST: $3.99 for a 24 pack at Target. KID REVIEW: The guys loved them. But, then, what do they know? They’ve never had a fruit snack before. MOM REVIEW: Though they’re made with fruit juice and applesauce, don’t be mislead. It’s still candy and still loaded with corn syrup. The claim of “good source of vitamin C” also is pretty bogus. They weigh in at only 10 percent of the recommended daily allowance. And there are 70 calories in a very tiny package. You’d get more vitamin C (136 percent) in a cup of strawberries at a barely half the calories – 43.
