Today, Christina and Carolyn tested 3 different brands of strawberry fruit bars. They are all fat-free. Here are the brands we tried (in no particular order):
Dreyer’s Outshine Strawberry Fruit Bars
Safeway Kitchens Strawberry Fruit Bars
Go to the How to Conduct a Blind Taste Test page on the menu to see how we conduct our taste tests. Do it yourself and see if your results are healthy!
IF YOU ARE DOING THE BLIND TASTE TEST YOURSELF, FROM HERE ON IS A SPOILER ALERT, SO DO NOT READ UNTIL YOU’RE DONE!
Carolyn- 1- Creamy. It had a lot of pieces of fruit; almost too much.
Christina- 1- wasn’t as sweet as I was expecting; creamy. One of my pieces had a strawberry remnant in it which tasted processed! :b Ew!!!!!
Carolyn- 2- This one doesn’t taste as much like strawberries, but it’s creamy and has a good texture.
Christina- 2- Tart. Better than #1. Slightly creamy.
Carolyn- 3- No strawberry flavor. Maybe a little too icy.
Christina- 3- Very sweet, but almost bland compared to #2.
Final Decision: Christina- #2 Carolyn- #2
It was revealed to Carolyn and Christina that #1 was the Fruttare, #2 was the Safeway Kitchens, and #3 was the Dreyers. We discovered that the Safeway Kitchens bar has only 80 calories and 19 grams of sugar. This is a good deal! Especially as we enter into summer (especially because we live in CA), this is a sweet, cold treat that doesn’t take away any energy you need to enjoy the summer.
We will be posting another test soon. Let us know in the comments what you think we should do!
What do you think about our results? Are they similar compared to your own? Let us know.

P.S. We would like to inform you that both of us have previously tried the Dreyer’s Fruit Bars, so this test may be slightly biased.
