Buddy Fruits USA Review and Giveaway



The one thing I have never had to fight with “Bug” about eating is fruits and veggies, he loves them both and prefers them over French fries and other not so good for you goodies and as a mother that makes me extremely happy….the only problem I have with his love of fruits it the mess and incontinence of taking them with us on road trips and such but I’ve recently discovered a fun and delicious way to take “Bug’s” favorite snacks with us when we go out and about. Recently I was looking for an easier way to take “Bug’s” favorite snacks with us and ran across Buddy Fruits that not only make is easy to take a good for you snack with us but one pouch equals one whole serving of fruit so what more could a mother want?

About Buddy Fruits (Taken From Website):

A family project, a common dream...
We love life , we love fruits and we love the USA!!!
Let me tell you the true story of my little french family.

During the summer 2006, my wife and I rent a big camper to travel along the mythical road 66 with our little child "Timéo". This was the accomplishment of a dream we always had and the journey proved to be fabulous and rich of new experiences. It was also the occasion for us to meet great people, discovers habits and traditions and spot all those little differences that make the American culture so unique.

And obviously, being a full time Chef and restaurant owner in France, I was also particularly curious and interested by the food and eating habits people have in the USA. And among the differences I observed I was quite surprised by the difficulty to find fruits and fruit pouches...

You have to know that in France, beside the cooking tradition and the wide variety of meals we prepare, we are used to eat loads of fruit and vegetables and so do our kids. And one of the best ways to eat fruits, especially when you are travelling, is through fruit pouches, a best seller concept in France with a high demand from kids and parents.

Well, during this trip, despite looking actively for such pouches for "Timéo" (he's such a big fan), we ended up to the conclusion that they didn't exist in America... And for this reason, we've started thinking in the idea of bringing this fabulous concept into the USA.

Then we came back in France and decided to plan another trip to the USA with samples of pouches in our bags, and with the goal of introducing this concept to our american friends. The trip finally took place during the summer 2007 - we organized an informal garden party with friends we have in Miami, friends our friends, family, relatives and with the objective of getting their feed-back about our revolutionary idea. We wanted to know whether this idea was worth leaving France, our jobs and comfort to start a new adventure in America for the launch and promotion of this new way of eating fruits.

At the end of the garden-testing-party, the general feeling was very positive and everyone seemed convinced by the 'squeezable fruit pouch' concept. All of the testers backed-up the idea and it was a collective "YES". And one of them even said : "Ouh...làlà! c'est bon!!!" … quote we loved and decided to keep to name our company which is therefore : "Ouh...làlà! c'est bon!!! LLC".

And then, everything went quite quickly : I gave up my restaurant and my wife quit her job as a banker. We packed-up our things, jumped in an airplane and here we are !

Yes, here we are because we believe that healthy food must be back on the front scene as it's essential for a good life and a healthy life. We have found the best fruit producers and mixed traditional and innovative recipes thanks to my chief skills to create our pure blended fruit pouches. You can be sure that our wholesome pouches will always deliver 100% natural and delicious fruits. It's our promise. It's our commitment.

Our Thoughts:

We were sent a variety of Buddy Fruits for “Bug” to try and boy does he love these pouches!! Apparently the fruit mixes in the pouches are pretty darn good because he usually has two of them a day one with breakfast and one as a late afternoon snack before dinner! I love them because they are quick and easy to store and they are a whole lot less messy then a whole fruit! “Bug” likes these fruit pouches too because they are easy to hold and make it easy for him to play while having his yummy snack.

I also feel more comfortable giving “Bug” Buddy Fruits vs. actual fruits since I don’t have to worry as much about him getting choked, and that’s great piece of mind when I’m busy in the kitchen or in the laundry room while he is wanting a snack. I’m also loving that these don’t have to be refrigerated and I can store them in the pantry on a shelf where “Bug” can choose his own flavor for his snack and best part is that if he doesn’t eat all of the pouch in one setting I can recap it and place it in the refrigerator for later when he wants to finish it off.

Bottom Line:

We are both happy to have found Buddy Fruits and we fully plan on keeping them in stock in our pantry for “Bug” and of all the flavor varieties they offer I don’t think “Bug” prefers one flavor over another he loves them all!
