As your children begin the new school year, are you faced with the conundrum of packing healthy and convenient items for their lunch box? Do you search for quick and easy but also healthy after-school snacks that they will actually eat?
Del Monte Foods hopes to make one of the above choices easier with the introduction of their newest Fruit Cup® varieties. The new fruits cups are packed at the peak of ripeness featuring Fall’s favorite fruits: Diced Pears in extra light syrup with Vanilla & Spice and Diced Apples & Pears in extra light syrup with Caramel. Each cup contains a full serving of all-natural fruit, is an excellent source of vitamin C and contains no high fructose corn syrup.
I had the chance to sample both. The diced apples and pears with caramel are a nice alternative to applesauce and have a light caramel flavor. My favorite was the pears with vanilla and spice. I loved the pears with the cinnamon. It is a great fall flavor.
Del Monte would like a lucky reader to give them a try. They have provided a prize pack (one package of each variety & $1.00 off coupon) to one lucky readers. Just leave a comment on this post telling me which variety you would like to try. You have until Thursday October 11 at midnight (MST).
In addition, to help get into the back-to-school spirit, Del Monte would like for you to be one of the first to play their new “Flavor Boom” Facebook game. This fun Del Monte game is played by filling up cups of fruit as you select the healthy ingredients that are found in the new Del Monte® Fruit Cup® varieties.
