I have to tell you about some seriously good snacks. Get ready for Figgy Apple Cinnamon Fruit Pops.
The only other cake-like pop I’ve had in my life was actually called Cake Pops. We ate them at school on Pajama Day. Everybody else’s was wheat and mine was Gluten Free. I loved it. We also watched a movie that day too. The rule at our school is you are allowed to show your kids a movie on Pajama Day, but it has to have something to do with your curriculum. One of my teachers, Louise, said she wished there was a Disney movie or something that had to do with oil, because that is what our main focus in Social Studies was, and my other teacher McKendree, said she knew a movie about that. So we ended up watching Free Willy 2. It was a super fun day, and the cake pops were delicious.
However, these fruit pops I’m about to tell you about surpassed those cake pops as much as a Cheetah would do to a snake in an 100 yard dash. Or 100 yard slither.
My favorite desserts aren’t usually fruit ones. I particularly enjoy ice cream and cupcakes, but fruit just doesn’t fall into my favorite dessert category. Maybe it is because I eat a lot of fruit during the day. Or because other things are just more appealing to me than fruit for dessert. Anyway, I totally changed my perspective today.
The brand of these snacks is Made In Nature. We eat a lot of things from them, like especially the dried fruit. The Figgy pops are very filling but your tongue wants more. There are a lot of different fruits and seeds, and they all incorporate in different ways. They are about half the size of a golf ball.
The taste was fabulous. There was a massive blast of flavor. Or immense. Or colossal. There is a sweet pop! at the beginning it slowly subdues throughout your chewing. Then at the end it feels like someone dumped a Niagara Falls worth of spices in your mouth. I ate 4!
These snacks are good for a little energy snack when you are tired or something sweet to fill your tummy up. They aren’t desserts, but they are a good snack to pop in your mouth so you have enough energy for the rest of the day. And they are organic. Nice!
Even if you are not a fruit fan, I suggest stopping at the store to pick some of these up for a quick bite. Be sure to get an entire bag; you’ll be stuffing your mouth all the way home!
