Last week I got one of the most exciting blogger packages that I have ever received, I got a pack from Fruitbowl, a brand that 8-year-old me used to absolutely love. I feel like everyone my age remembers Fruitbowl and probably had some of their tasty products at some point in their life. Whether you’re 8 or 23 like me, I still love them just as much as I did back then.
You should have seen my face when I opened up the parcel and seen all of the snacks I used to have when I was little (especially the school bars!!!!). Food is the way to my heart and Fruitbowl brings back all kind of nostalgia for me. I’ve just started a new job and I’m adjusting to a new life routine. Sometimes I choose to sleep in rather than get up and get a good meal, very bad habit I know… but having a healthy snack is something I can grab on the way as it’s so quick and easy. The packaging is really cute too- my mum is a teacher and has taken the box to school haha.
Now I have tried many Fruitbowl products over the years but we probably haven’t had them in the house now for a good few years. I didn’t live at home for a few years whilst I began University, so maybe we did have them in all along and I’ve been missing out! I was sent a variety of the products to try, some that I had tried before and some that were completely new to me.
I’m a huge fan of yoghurt coated raisins, it’s like my brain convinces me that it’s a chocolate sweet treat when actually it’s reasonably healthy. I took a packet of these to work in my lunch box instead of a chocolate bar but after I had these I wasn’t craving chocolate like I do most times I have some fruit or a fruit-based product. I love the fruit flakes, when I was younger I used to have the strawberry flavour but this time around I got to try the mango and blackcurrant flakes too. The mango flakes were my faaaaave. I absolutely love mango, it’s my favourite fruit and these taste so good. Really I should have saved these until last but they were the first ones I had out of my pack!
In school, I used to have the Fruitbowl school bars and I remember none of my friends knew what they were until I kept on bringing them in. The school bars again taste so sweet but they are good for you! The apple one is my favourite.
Have a great day everyone,
