Disclosure: I received free juice bars to review.
J&J Snack Foods sent me a couple of Minute Maid® Juice Bars Variety Boxes to review.
I love anything cold in the summer and wanted to check these out so I could see if it was something I need to stock up on before it gets hot.
These juice bars are 90% juice. Two of the flavors (Orange, and Grape) contain some high fructose corn syrup too as well as some artificial flavorings.
They are mostly juice though and have only 40 calories per bar! That is mostly a good thing. I say mostly because once I know something good has a pretty low calorie count I tend to eat more of them.
So I ended up eating two or three of these at a time. Can’t blame Minute Maid for that though(I would if I could). It isn’t their fault I can’t control my snacking.
At least these are mostly made of real fruit juice so I don’t have to feel so guilty about it. They taste good too. I like the cherry flavor best and my husband liked the grape best. The orange flavor is ok too.
I also like the package the juice comes in. It is little and the ends are flat on opposite sides. They are easy to open and easy to hold. It helps that the juice bars are small since I don’t have a separate freezer. These frozen juice bars don’t take up much room at all. I will be looking to buy a few boxes of these later on in the summer when it is hot.
