The Parent Approved, Kid-Friendly No-Added Sugar Fruity Snacks Hit Shelves This Summer
FRESNO, Calif., May 18, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- With an ongoing commitment to reimagining the endless possibilities of the whole fruit raisin, Sun-Maid Growers of California is expanding its snacking portfolio with the addition of two new trendy and summertime fruity flavor favorites – Tropical Punch and Peach. The new real fruit flavors compliment Sun-Maid's existing Sour Raisin Snacks, which, made from golden raisins, redefine the traditional fruit snack category – with a promise of real whole fruit, no added sugars or artificial ingredients.
"Traditionally, fruit snacks have been loaded with added sugars, corn syrup and artificial ingredients and it is time real fruit takes center stage," said Chief Imagination Wrangler (President and CEO) Harry Overly. "Our Fruity Raisin Snacks are simply real whole fruit that tastes like a candy, not a gummy fruity snack posing as real fruit. By adding in these delicious new flavors, we're delighted to offer fans the choice between a sourer punch or sweeter fruity taste – just in time for summer."
With Sun-Maid's line of whole fruit snacks, Non-GMO means they've only reimagined not reengineered the raisin – as Sun-Maid continues to explore once thought of imaginary flavors of what the raisin could be and bring them to market.
The two new flavors are on the naturally sweeter side compared to the existing Sour Raisin Snacks that are also gluten-free and contain no added sugar or artificial ingredients. Sun-Maid's Fruity Raisin Snacks portfolio has been designed as a better-for-you snack option that tastes like candy for parents in search of healthier and whole fruit snacks for their children.
For those that prefer a pucker of sour fruity taste, Sun-Maid offers four sour flavors, including Strawberry, Watermelon, Mixed Berry and Blue Raspberry. The product is found nationwide in the dried fruit aisle or online via Amazon.
