Del Monte Review and Giveaway!


We recently were sent a packaged of Del Monte fruit drinks and snacks for review!  We've never reviewed food before, and the kids were really excited!!


One afternoon while we were watching the Olympics (you can see it in the background) I decided to pull out the snacks and let the kids do a little judging of their own.  


We started out with fruit cups.  The two flavors we were sent for review were Mango and Pineapple Mango.  


I think this was their most fun review ever!  Snack time? Yes please!!


Mustang gave them a 9.8 out of 10.  Ha ha!!

In all seriousness, we all liked the mango cups the best.  Somehow, the mix of pineapple and mango were two different of textures.  We aren't texture people and even we noticed it.  That said, everyone happily ate both snack cups, we just preferred the mango.


Next up, we tried the Fruit Burst Squeezers.  We love the packaging.  The tops can be closed back up if you need to.  They were pretty easy to open, too.  The little girls needed help-but that is actually preferred ;).



The first one we tried was the fruit-veggie peach-mango.  To be honest, Mustang's face said it all.  They were good, but just, well...different.  Everyone drank them up and was happy about it, but they all preferred the fruit mixed berry we tried MUCH better.

Overall, we liked all the products a lot!  I believe we will be adding the drinks to our grocery lists as I am always looking for drinks that can go in the car without spilling and are not full of sugar.  The fruit cups were certainly enjoyed and will be great as an occasional treat.  

Here is a little information about the products we received:
