I spend way too much time at Whole Foods, finding things I’m not looking for but all of a sudden I can’t live without. This time it’s Annie’s Fruit Snacks.
Appearing at the end of the aisle so when I whipped around the corner, they were right there, staring at me in the face. Of course, they were on sale, a major point in their favor. Attractive in their pretty package labeled with organic, no preservatives and no additives. And with three flavors to choose from: Tropical Treat, Berry Patch and Sunny Citrus.
How could I possibly resist?
Tearing open a pouch, the bunny-shaped fruit snacks remind me of gummy bears but not as chewy and a bit softer. The flavors aren’t super strong, they’re more subtle. But the texture is very good.
I haven’t eaten a gummy bear in years. At one time (way before I was ever vegan), it was my favorite candy. Once, my mom actually bought me a giant bag as a Christmas gift (I’m surprised she even remembered) and I had to tell her it’s not vegan. But now I can have my candy and eat it too. Woo hoo!
