Review of Libby's Jumbo Cups3:47 PM
If you're feeling the pain of high-priced fresh fruit, I can totally relate. Just last year, we started venturing into the world of pantry-fresh fruit to help fill in the nutrition gap for my kids. With no clue what's going to be on sale each week, having a stash of fruit cups on hand gives me some certainty with my meal planning, and I have to admit -- I love the stuff over cottage cheese!
Libby's Jumbo Cups aren't available in stores until September, but we got some *free samples to give them a try early. Just as yummy as the original Peaches, Pears, Mixed Fruit, and Cherry Mixed Fruit, these fruit cups are much bigger (50% bigger than your typical fruit cup). That makes them perfect for putting into a grown-up's lunch bag (or a really, really hungry 6-year-old's.) And did I mention that the fruit is from California?
I liked serving these cups at lunch time, mostly because I knew it would be enough for my growing 1st-grader and my tween daughter (who usually ask for spendy seconds on the fruit.) I then took one of the jumbo cups and split it between my two youngest, and this was the perfect size for everyone! (I save the empties for just this reason.)
