I mentioned in my last Fruttare review that their media agency was kind enough to send me some free coupons to try out some of their new products. Those coupons lead me to today's review as I'm going to take a look at this box of six Fruttare Black Cherry Ice Bars, which is also among their two new product offerings. Each bar in this box is 2.4 fluid ounces and is a very economical 60 calories, so it's a "healthy" dessert treat if that is what you are looking for.
As you can see, this bar is befitting of the name as it is quite icy. Outside of that, this one was dark red black cherry juice with little bits of black cherry mixed in with the juice. The bar itself smelled nicely of cherry and despite the appearance, was not a rock hard ice bar like I might have expected. Don't get me wrong, it was definitely solid, but it had a bit of give to it which was good for those people (me) that are worried about breaking their teeth on rock hard ice bars.
Like the exterior of the bar, my first bite provided a texture that was kind of soft and dare I say it, but it reminded me of something creamy (I've said that in Fruttare reviews before). That was an awesome experience for an ice bar since I've been subjected to a lifetime of ice bars that are incredibly difficult to bite through and that's not something that I look forward to since I have particularly sensitive teeth. As for the flavor, it had a great bite of black cherry that was alternately tart and sweet, but not too overpowering. It was one of the most delightful cherry flavors that I've ever had, quite honestly. Outside of that black cherry flavor, this bar didn't have many other flavors, but again, that's what Fruttare expected so that comes as no surprise.
Buy It or Fly By It? Quite honestly, I devoured two of these in one sitting. The first reason I did that is because they were such a economical sixty calories. The second reason I did that is because these things were so darn good and I thoroughly enjoyed them, netting this a very strong BUY IT rating. Sometimes the price of these Fruttare bars can be prohibitive, but if you catch these on sale, don't hesitate to grab them off the shelf because they are darn delicious.
