Great Value Fruit Snacks

Read about my experience with Wal-Mart's Great Value Fruit Snacks and why I intend to buy them again.


Review: Great Value Fruit Snacks

Published 09:09 am

My two sons, 3 and 9, love snack time. And although I try to give them the healthiest snacks a majority of the time, I do allow them to splurge and eat "unhealthy" snacks every now and then. One type of snack that they like to eat that isn't particularly unhealthy are those fruit snacks that come in various shapes and flavors, as well as various characters. After creating a very strict budget, I realized that depending on which store I went to, these fruit snacks could really be quite pricey, especially if I bought them on a weekly basis.

When I switched to the Great Value Fruit Snacks, I made sure that my older son wasn't with me. My younger son isn't as observant as the older one, and I can get away with sneaking past certain items that he likes in order to avoid buying them. My older son notices everything, and although I can usually explain why I'm doing something differently to him and he'll understand why and not object, I didn't want to have to do all this explaining in front of my three-year-old, who is still prone to tantrums at times. Naturally he was going to want the fruit snacks with the characters on them, and I wasn't going to get them, nor did I want to deal with a tantrum.

When I got the Great Value Fruit Snacks home, I placed them on the table, and he boys soon requested one. I gave them each one, and surprisingly they didn't pay much attention to the packaging. Of course there was no Diego, Dora, Bob the Builder or any of the other characters often found on fruit snack packages. This package simply had smiley faces all over it.

While the boys ate the fruit snacks, I decided to try a package too. I don't regularly eat fruit snacks, but I do taste a couple from time to time if I'm in the mood. The taste of the Great Value Fruit Snacks was a definite change from the Kellogg's brand that we usually buy. The Great Value Fruit Snacks weren't as flavorful, nor was the consistency quite the same as Kellogg's. Despite the fact that I didn't like the Great Value Fruit Snacks as well as other kinds, I will continue to buy them. I just won't eat them myself anymore, but they're a lot cheaper than name brand fruit snacks, and also my boys liked them a great deal. So from now on, if I can save money buy purchasing the Walmart brand, I will.
