Right before the long weekend started the Foodie Fairy showed up at my door with a box of PC Loads of Blueberry Fruit Bars! It was finally a warm day so the timing could not have been more perfect.
“Blueberries, sugar, water, pomegranate juice, glucose solids, citric acid, guar gum, dextrose, mono- and diglycerides, carob bean gum, polysorbate 80, sorbic acid.”
Well I was right. Frozen blueberries on a stick but with more sugar than water and lots of other “stuff”.
Frozen treats are tough. In order for them to be sweet enough to be enjoyed, there has to be a lot of sweetener but why is there all that other stuff? It is a shame because this tasted like a very basic and lovely healthy treat. It makes me wonder if everything else was really necessary.
I did enjoy these and appreciate that the Foodie Fairy arrived at my door so I could try this sweet treat but I think I will stick with the PC Blue Menu Caramel Greek Yogurt Smoothie Bars. They are just 100 calories and taste divine. I would rather indulge in something a tad naughty that ends up being surprisingly healthy than have a treat I thought was healthy ending up being 120 calories and contains something called polysorbate 80, a synthetic compound.
If you love blueberries, you will enjoy PC Loads of Blueberry Fruit Bars. Combing them with pomegranate juice and having them contain 50% blueberries… These are tasty and fun for the summer and contain zero fat. Me? I will get blueberries in my smoothies and pretend I am being a naughty foodie with their Caramel Greek Yogurt Smoothie Bars instead.
