[Review] Frubbas Fruit Chips

Snacking has always been my addiction. Some snacks are good; most are bad. The bottomline is, I eat anything that tastes great! So for now, I will share with you a product that I got from my visit to the World Bazaar Festival this year. It is a snack for the health conscious. I'm glad that it is delicious, too.

Introducing Frubbas Fruit Chips! According to the salesgirl, this product is still being released to the Philippine Market. Being a rare find for now, I am happy that I was able to buy at the bazaar. A foil pack costs Php38, while a box (consisting of 10 packs) costs PhP360.

Frubbas Fruit Chips is available in three flavors: Grapes, Strawberry, and Apple. This snack is made of dried fruits. It is different from the soft and elastic variants you see in the market. This one is crispy. Well, I guess there are a lot of ways to dry and preserve a fruit. But I like this crispy one better. I bought each available variant of Frubbas for me to try.


Frubbas in Grapes, Strawberry, and Apple.
So let's start with Frubbas Grape/Raisin Crisps. As I opened the foil pack, I got disappointed at how little the contents are. Oh I didn't see what was written at the back of the packaging!


The contents of the foil pack (raisin).


Each pack has only 25-35 grapes. :(

A closer look at the dried grapes.
The Frubbas dried grapes tastes just like your sweet grapes, without the juiciness. Its sweetness is the same as the fresh fruit. I like the crispiness that pops in between my teeth at each bite. 

Let's move on to Frubbas dried strawberries. This is the most attractive of all three! Its color is red and it tasted just like the fresh fruit! As before, the contents was so little.

Only six strawberries. :(

Closer look at some dried strawberries.
The dried strawberries reminded me of fresh ones on my favorite yogurt. Strawberries are a regular topping on my cup of yogurt. Frubbas dried strawberries is crispy, and tasted like fresh strawberries, too. It is sweet but there is a hint of sourness in every piece.

The last version that I ate was the dried apples. After my experience with the grapes and strawberries, I expected few contents on this one. 


The contents.

Contains only 1 1/2 apples.
I didn't find this one appealing to me. Frubbas dried apples are not as sweet as the grape or strawberry variants. It's not that crispy, too. On the positive note, it also tastes naturally like fresh apples. But I like fresh apples better than this. 

This is worth note taking: Frubbas is free of preservatives and known allergens as declared at the back of their package...

My favorite among the three variants is Frubbas Strawberry Crisps. I am still thinking if I will buy another on my next visit. My brain says, "Don't buy it. You get so little out of PhP38. It's not worth the price." On the other hand, my heart says, "It's so yummy! Forget the price and go have it!". It is not an easy decision to make. However, if you are looking for a healthy twist to your snacking experience, Frubbas Fruit Crisps is definitely a try!

I found your blog while doing research on the Frubbas Fruit Chips snacks... looks like you are the only person who posted about it so far.

I'm in British Columbia, Canada and just found these at the store last week. It's a lot cheaper here.. only $2CAD for a box (10 pack), that's less than $90PhP!

For price of 2 pounds of apple I get to buy 10 packs of conveinent fruit snacks , it's actually cheaper than buying fresh fruits.

And I think these are going to be popular, Even Disney just came out with their own freeze dried fruit chips at 5x the price..

A Full Moon: My Second Fanfiction is Here!

Heya Dearies!  Following my first fanfiction The Path of The Unspecialized (The King's Avatar Fanfic) , which was posted in Webnovel, m y next story is now ready to be published! I'm very excited to share this with you. One of the video games that I have played for a very long time is The Sims. Started around 19 years ago, thereabouts. Until now, I don't get tired of creating Sims and building houses. Though yes, there have been times where I was disappointed at how buggy the game is... but yeah, it hasn't stopped me from playing the game. Hahaha~ The Sims is a life simulation and oftentimes, I create stories for my sims. What would they look like? How would they start out? Where would they live? With The Sims 4: Vampires game pack came Caleb Vatore, who became my favorite pre-made sim. I would pair him up with a sim of my own.  And in the process of playing, I eventually got inspired to write down how their story would go in my version of The Sims 4 world. So p r

[Review] Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub

Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub is a product that impressed me on my first try. Mostly, when I review beauty products, I use it at least a week to see the effects and results on my skin. I never thought that a body scrub can make me go "wow!" instantly! I got this from my Gluta-C Sample Room haul . And I used it the day after I got it. I was that excited!  This product is packaged in a tub. It is a soft, viscous, and grainy cream. The smell is nice, too! It has a cool perfume scent.  120g tub of Gluta-C Body Scrub This is how I used this: I wet my skin and then took an ample amount of the scrub and then applied it using circular motions. Afterwards, I put liquid body wash on a loofah then rubbed on my skin. I could feel the small grains from the scrub gently exfoliating my skin. I love the combination it does with the body wash. The bubbles and the foam make it comfortable! All the while, I know that my skin is thoroughly cleansed!  Here is the surprise!

[Food Review] Everyday Tous Les Jours

My addiction with Tous les Jours started when my cousin brought home a whole load of breads from the said bakery. She recommended that their products are of high quality, while handing me their bestseller aptly called as "Sweet Black Rice Bread with Cream Cheese". Upon taking my first bite, I couldn't stop eating it up until the last piece. With that inspiration, I decided to go visit one of their stores for a closer look.  I went to their branch in SM North. The store is located in The Block near SM Hypermarket. Saturated with yellow lights and wooden furniture, Tous Les Jours had the french bakery/coffee shop aura.

Following my cousin's recommendation, I bought the one with cream cheese filling. However, I had a dilemma which one to choose as it has two variants. The one with black sesame? or plain
