Fruit Bowl Mango Flakes Review

We have been trying out some Mango Flakes from Fruit Bowl. They’re described as:

Deliciously fruity flakes made by drying a blend of apple & mango purees and fruit juices

Fruit Bowl are all about helping parents get the kids eating healthier with their range of fruity snacks. We’ve tried their Fruit Peelers before which were a big hit. There are also bars, yoghurt coated flakes, shapes, little fruit bowl and picked & pressed to chose from so lots of choice and ways to get the kids eating more fruit.

They come as a multipack of 6 x 18g which is a size just right for lunchboxes, after school snacks or just when the kids decide they want a snack (32569 billion times a day with my kids!) they contain no nasties, only natural colours & flavours, are gluten & dairy free and are vegetarian society approved. They also count as 1 of your 5 a day which is great for getting the fruit & veg intake up.

The first thing you notice when you open the pack is the smell, they smell really fruity and taste just as yummy. They are naturally sweet (there’s no added sugar) and have a nice chewy texture so make a great alternative to sweets or crisps. My children really liked them, I’m lucky in that they like to eat fruit anyway but it’s always like to have different things for them to try. They only contain 58 calories per pack so if you’re also keeping an eye on what you’re eating they make a good option for adults too. Fab for taking to work instead of frequenting that cake shop;-)

The flakes can also be used in baking, there are some tasty looking recipes for you to try out on the Fruit Bowl website.

The packs we received also had some lovely National Geographic Kids stickers in and you can get  35% off a year’s subscription to National Geographic Kids magazine by going to http://www.ngkids.co.uk/subscribe and using the code NGFRB1.

They also come in Raspberry, Strawberry, Blackcurrant flavours and a multipack mixture of 12 packs. They are available to purchase from supermarkets (Asda, Tesco, Morrison’s, Waitrose, Sainsbury’s and Budgens) nationwide. And also available from Ocado. RRP is £2 for a pack of 6.
