The Chronic Consumer

I buy things — all the time!

Fruit by the Foot

fruit-by-the-foot So it’s not the 1990’s anymore. I get that. But Fruit by the Foot is still something I buy, though this time I’m doing it for my son instead of for myself.

Fruit by the Foot is similar to Fruit Roll-Ups in that you get some kind of rolled up fruit-flavored chewy snack to consume. The main difference is that Fruit by the Foot provides three feet of snacking fun, instead of the regular little square of a Fruit Roll-Up.

While I wouldn’t exactly call Fruit by the Foot a “healthy” snack, it is healthier than some other prepackaged offerings. At least it contains 25% of the RDA of vitamin C and only has 80 calories per roll.

My son likes the Strawberry and Berry Tie-Dye flavors, so those are the only ones we get. Personally, I find them far too sweet to eat on a daily basis, but my son doesn’t seem to get tired of them. I guess that’s ok — as long as he brushes his teeth as soon as he’s done!
