I find that I need a snack partway through my day. Doesn’t everyone? Recently Wakefield Research conducted a study for Dole Real Fruit Bites, in which they found that 77% of women can’t get through a normal day without at least one snack. Yep, that sounds about right to me, not new news to me. What was new news was Dole Real Fruit Bites.
Dole Real Fruit Bites review
ABOUT DOLE REAL FRUIT BITES

Dole Real Fruit Bites combine three healthy favorites – fruit, yogurt, and whole grain oats – into one delicious taste. Each bite-size piece is made from real Dole dried fruit, coated with yogurt and sprinkled with tasted whole grain oats. Dole Real Fruit Bites are the perfect naturally sweet and delicious on-the-go snack. Each pouch has 80-90 calories, making it the ideal portion-controlled, healthier treat.

MY THOUGHTS
I received samples of Dole Real Fruit Bites in the apple, pineapple and mango varieties. As someone that is always on the go, I appreciate the easy to open single serve pouches. One serving size is just a handful, perfect for a quick snack. As someone who is concerned about weight, I like that one serving is only 80-90 calories,has no trans fats and Vitamin C. The snacks are really tasty, smooth on the outside with a bit of texture after biting in.
Dole Real Fruit Bites
Dole Real Fruit Bites are available now in the dried fruit section at select grocery retailers and online with a suggested retail price of $3.29 for a packet of six pouches.

Tropical Dole I do not think with apples–pineapples mostly.

blueyes May 6, 2012 - 11:18 am

Mango flavored definitely. I’m still a little iffy on anything pineapple after I went overboard eating a fresh one as a child and my tongue and mouth were essentially raw afterwards lol
