Sharkies Organic Fruit Chews Review and Giveaway

>> Thursday, October 21, 2010

Sharkies Organic Fruit Chews grabbed my attention because they are packed with real fruit juice, whole grains, and carbohydrates. I love that they don't use any food coloring too! Another cool thing is that the naturally occurring electrolytes in Sharkies® come from the potassium in the fruit juice and the sodium in the rice and water. Sharkies are Gluten Free, Wheat Free, GMO Free and Vegetarian!

Aren't Sharkies just candy?
No, although children can and will consume Sharkies as a "better for you" snack, none of the sugars in Sharkies are refined and half the product is brown rice syrup giving it complex carbohydrates for sustained energy. This added to the simple sugars from the fruit and organic cane make Sharkies a functional, healthy alternative to candy or other fruit snacks. Unlike candy, Sharkies don't contain high fructose corn syrup, sucrose, or further refined sugar.

Sharkies offers organic fruit chews for kids and adults! My husband and I totally dig the Sharkies Organic Sports Chews. He works a lot of long days where he coaches after school and he has been enjoying them as a treat to give him energy to get pumped up for the practices. These come in four varieties and I think they all taste great!

Sharkies also has lots of kids organic fruit chews options. They have Lunchbox Organic Chews which are indeed the perfect size for packing in my daughter's lunchbox and she really loves it when I pack this treat! They also have organic omega3 Smart Twist which are really yummy and to me, taste the least sweet of all the Sharkies offerings. There is also a Sharkies Kids Sports Chew option which has a larger amount of fish than the lunchbox bags. I like to carry the Sharkies Kids Sports Chews in my purse as a yummy playground snack.

Sharkies can be bought online or it is carried by lots of retailers including Whole Foods and Target. Do you also want to win this all-natural organic snack that is portable and tastes great? Of course you do because you can always use more Sharkies!

Thank you so much! I have been looking for a fruit snack alternative the last couple of weeks. I just started eliminating all food dyes from my son's diet and he was really missing his traditional fruit snacks! Looks like your kids really like these!
