Snack Review: Welch’s Fruit Snacks

Details: Official site is

Score: 7/10

Fruit snacks are terrible for you. They’re sugar filled gummies that get stuck in your teeth and ruin your blood sugar levels. With that said, I love fruit snacks. I’ve loved them since I was a kid and they are a treat I still indulge in despite reaching adulthood. Welch’s Fruit Snacks offer just enough of the delusion of healthiness for me to not feel completely guilty for eating them. They’ve supposedly got real fruit and some vitamins in them so as to be somewhat healthy. My personal feeling is that there is little that can combat the detrimental elements of eating so much sugar.

The taste is all right. There are two types of fruit snacks: those that destroy your teeth and those that really really catastrophically destroy your teeth. Welch’s is the kind that sort of destroys your teeth, but not terribly. Something with their recipe has made the fruit snacks less sticky and less prone to stick to your teeth. They do still stick though.

Overall, these things are all right. I will say that they are not as appealing as the ones that absolutely destroy your teeth. Welch’s taste a little more oily and slightly less sweet, which are likely effects of them being “healthier.”
