Had Fruit Chillers from Del Monte existed back then, there would have been a lot less sulking at our house! We’re going to have hot weather for weeks. Pick up a carton today and tuck it into the freezer, overnight. While you’re having “family time” tomorrow, surprise everyone with this own, frozen tube of Fruit Chiller! Visit the Del Monte Fruit Chillers Web Site and get recipes, comparisons between snacks, and special offers.
When I was a kid, we had a corner grocery store (Mr. Unger’s). He had a freezer with those freeze pops in colors mother nature never created, sold in single tubes, like candy. These were a special treat, but my mother didn’t allow my sister and I to eat them very often because they were full of sugar and chemicals.
Fruit Chillers are essentially, the same delight as those freeze pops, but they have a major difference: They are made with with 1lb. of real fruit, so kids can get the sweet treat they love, and moms can feel better about them, too. And at just $2.89 per carton for eight servings, they’re great for frugal-minded people, too.
Fruit Chillers Freeze and Eat Tubes come Strawberry Snow Storm and Grape Berry Blizzard. Photographer Bobby Marro took this photo of me and lifestyle & entertaining expert Jeanne Benedict (from celebrations.com), posing with a Grape Berry Blizzard!
Although these are marketed for mothers to give to their children, when I attended a “chill out” event for the product, the first thing that came to mind was how much adult women would love these. For starters, they’re small enough to satisfy a craving for something cold and sweet without being too filling. At just 55 calories a stick, with no fat and 11 g of sugar, they are not too fattening either. They have a sweet taste, but it is more sorbet than sugar-sweet or chemical-y. You also get 25% of your daily value of Vitamin C from just one tube. There are no artificial flavors, no corn syrup, and they’re gluten free. The first three ingredients are water and: pear puree, pear juice, and white grape juice.
