Both of my kids love dried fruit and fight over it like it’s candy. And sometimes, dried fruit can seem a lot like candy–especially when a bunch of sugar’s been added.
That’s one reason I dig these new Plum Amazins. They have no added sugar at all, and are naturally lower in sugar (and calories) than even raisins. And since they’re dried plums, they’ve got a bunch of fiber: 3 grams per serving.
Yes. I said dried plums.
As in, prunes.
Prunes you will love. Prunes your kids will gobble up.
To be honest, I’d never even tried prunes before. Though I love fresh plums, prunes have always given me the willies. They’ve always looked a little too mushy and menacing.
But Plum Amazins are cute little dices and aren’t mushy at all. My kids eat them straight from the canister. I’ve been toting them around in a little baggie with raw almonds.
You can also toss them onto salads
or bake them into cookies.
Want to try them for yourself?
I’m giving away a coupon for a FREE canister of Plum Amazins to two readers.
