Del Monte Fruit Burst Squeezers {Review & $50 Walmart Gift Card Giveaway}

Del Monte logo
Do kids these days have much busier schedules than when I was young, or do I just not clearly remember that far back?

Whether or not the school year is in full swing, I feel like both of my girls have something on the calendar nearly every day of the week — school, sports, clubs, camps, homework, appointments, play dates... the list goes on and on!

Therefore, in our continual rush from place to place, it is no surprise that parents often find it difficult to fit in proper nutrition all the time. You can't exactly feed your child a well-balanced meal during the drive from school to piano lessons, can you?

Instead, it is far easier to turn to delicious and nutritious products that are designed for simple on-the-go snacking any day of the week. The most recent that we have been introduced to (and have been enjoying) around here are the yummy new Fruit Burst Squeezers from Del Monte.

Fruit Burst Squeezers

Made in the U.S.A., Del Monte Fruit Burst Squeezers contain 1½ servings of fruit or fruit and veggies and are an excellent source of vitamins A and C. In addition, these great purees contain no artificial flavors or high fructose corn syrup and are packaged in extremely convenient re-closeable pouches so you always know that your child is getting the nutrition that they need in a tasty, portable way.

Adding to the convenience of these squeezable snacks, Del Monte Fruit Burst Squeezers can be found at your local Walmart, so it is a snap to pick up your favorite flavors while you're there shopping.

The three Simply Fruit varieties include:
  • Apple Cinnamon: Pear puree concentrate, water, apple puree concentrate, pear juice concentrate, natural flavors, ascorbic acid (vitamin C), cinnamon, malic acid.
    Mixed Berry Fruit Burst Squeezers
  • Mixed Berry: Pear puree concentrate, water, pear juice concentrate, natural flavors, strawberry puree, red raspberry puree concentrate, blueberry puree concentrate, fruit and vegetable extracts for color, ascorbic acid (vitamin C), malic acid.
  • Strawberry: Pear puree concentrate, water, pear juice concentrate, strawberry puree concentrate, natural flavors, carmine, ascorbic acid (vitamin C), malic acid.
The two Fruit + Veggie varieties include:
  • Peach-Mango: Pear puree concentrate, water, pumpkin juice concentrate, peach puree concentrate, pear juice concentrate, carrot juice concentrate, carrot puree, mango puree concentrate, natural flavors, ascorbic acid (vitamin C), citric acid.
  • Blueberry: Pear puree concentrate, water, pumpkin juice concentrate, pear juice concentrate, natural flavors, carrot puree, blueberry puree concentrate, fruit and vegetable extracts for color, ascorbic acid (vitamin C), citric acid.
When a creatively-designed box containing a selection of Fruit Burst Squeezers and more arrived, my kids were more than happy to help out in showing how well these new pouches fit into our lives every day of the week.

Del Monte review

Using each of the Fruit Burst Squeezers and a small sign for inspiration, we started off on Monday and proceeded through the week with these squeezable snacks joining us along the way.

Del Monte Fruit Burst Squeezers review

Yum!
  • Day 1, After School Snack: These are just the right size for a quick pick-me-up when Big Sister E gets home from school.
  • Day 2, On-The-Go: Whether in the car or in the stroller, Little Sister B has loved having Del Monte handy.
  • Day 3, Lunch Box Favorite: Could these be any more easy to pack in a lunch box?
  • Day 4, Mom's Treat: I have a limited amount of time to myself in a day, so grabbing a quick and tasty snack is just the right accompaniment to kicking up my feet and relaxing.
  • Day 5, Choose Your Own: I couldn't think of a better way to sum up our week of Fruit Burst Squeezers than by showing just how big of smiles the girls both get when they see these waiting for them!
The kids and I loved how easy these pouches are to hold in your hand (even for small hands) and that they are incredibly portable for tossing into a backpack, lunch box or purse and knowing that they won't break, spill or even require a spoon. Just open the top and treat it like a straw and then screw the cap back on any leftovers and save them for later!

With no refrigeration necessary, these are an extremely convenient way to include good nutrition just about anywhere... although for a special treat, put them in the freezer and try them chilled!

Find out much more about these and all of Del Monte's delicious products by visiting DelMonte.com and connecting with them on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. Be sure to keep an eye out for all five of the Fruit Burst Squeezers the next time you're at Walmart or plan ahead by checking Walmart.com to see if they're available at your local store.

Plus, thanks to Del Monte's generosity, one person will be prepared to stock their pantry with Fruit Burst Squeezers for quite some time to come, because...

One lucky person will win a $50 Walmart gift card!
