We love finding new products to try and when I saw Crushed I thought that LP would love them. LP has a bit of a fruit addiction and loves it in any form – Actual fruit, dried fruit, cooked fruit and fruit smoothies. Crushed sent us a couple of their Fruit Snacks to try and I immediately put them in the fridge to chill.
The great thing about Crushed is that they don’t need to be kept chilled and can be enjoyed at room temperature or in the fridge. This makes them the perfect snack to take out and about – On day trips, in packed lunches or to keep in your bag as a healthy snack on the go.
LP really enjoyed the pouches of fruit and had them after her lunch – at home and when we were out for the day. LP is a fairly clean eater now and doesn’t make much mess but even with a banana, a satsuma or an apple LP will end up with sticky fingers. With Crushed there is literally no mess, eaten like a drink it’s a great way to get one of your 5 a day – Crushed are 100% fruit!
Crushed currently comes in two flavours – Banana & Apple and Banana & Strawberry. LP didn’t have any clear preference between them but she does like most fruit so that wasn’t surprising. LP loved the ‘novelty’ of Crushed as she usually has fruit ‘as it comes’ and when offered Crushed or an alternative she chose Crushed each time.
Crushed is available in Waitrose at a price of £3.50 for 4x100g.
Disclosure: We were sent the above products for the purpose of this review however all thoughts are my own.
