I decided to sign up to an advertising site called Adlet earlier this year and if I’m completely honest I was a bit baffled with what I was doing at first and didn’t pay as much attention as I should have. When I sat down one day and really read through the site, I realised it was not only a great way to get some advertising on your blog, but also a means of working with companies and brands that you might not have come across before.
One of those that caught my eye was Urban Fruit. I am a massive fruit fan and will eat every kind of fruit going, so this company was perfect as it even had FRUIT in the title. If you haven’t heard of Urban Fruit before like I hadn’t then here is their stance straight from their site:
“Delicious fruit, picked when it’s perfectly ripe, and then gently baked at low
temperatures so that you hang on to all the good stuff. We will never add any
sugar, oils, sulphites, concentrates or any other funny business to our fruit.”
This stood out for me as I am trying to eat healthier and better and I absolutely love the idea of baked dry fruit that isn’t your standard apricots etc that you find in the healthy aisle of the shops. The lovely people at Urban Fruit sent me the best box packed with their fabulous products and I was over the moon. I received several bags of Mango, Pineapple, Strawberry and Tropical.
I have been munching on these beauties for the last couple of weeks now and have been trying to make them last as I cannot say enough good things about these products. I am a huge crisps enthusiast however it’s not exactly the healthiest hobby to have! (Yes, I just referred to my crisp addiction as a hobby!) It’s been great to grab a bag of these on an evening whilst reading blogs or watching Netflix, and not feeling a pang of guilt at eating the calories.
My favourite bag out of them all was definitely the Mango which is one of my favourite fruits anyway, but I can honestly say I have enjoyed them all. I wasn’t a huge pineapple person before; I’ll eat it but always first in a fruit salad to get it over with, however these baked versions were very more-ish and made me actually want to eat the pineapple ones.
I would definitely purchase these fruit bags again in future and they can be bought from Tesco, Asda, Co-op, Waitrose, Ocado, Wilkinsons, Boots and Amazon. They would be perfect for those with kids and need some packed lunch ideas or just those like me who are pretty unhealthy and eat lots of crisps/sweets and have serious guilt after!
