I love many kinds of fruit and I am always looking for great fruit cup type snacks. Recently, I came across a pack of Dole Diced Pears in Juice cups in the unrefrigerated canned fruit section of my local grocery store. These looked fantastic. I decided to purchase them, try them out and write a product review all about my personal experience with them. Here is what I discovered!
I am a long time fan of many Dole canned and jar fruit products. I bought one pack of Dole Diced Pears in Juice for under three dollars. Each pack has four individual diced pears cups or bowls in it. I discovered that this snack is fat free, low cal, cholesterol free and rich in vitamin C. These fruit cups are also 2011 Chef’s Best Taste Award winners! Yep, award winning tasty fruit cups. I liked that very much. I could not wait to taste these!
This fruit is not canned. It is in cups and packed in one hundred percent fruit juice. Fabulous! The ingredients are pears, white grape juice from concentrate, lemon juice from concentrate, ascorbic acid, natural flavors and citric acid. One serving equals one and a half servings of fruit. When I tasted these diced pears, I loved them! They are fresh tasting, sweet and delicious. This snack is very portable and does not have to be refrigerated until you open them. They are better tasting when served chilled. I rate Dole Diced Pears in Juice four stars out of five stars. The individual cups are easy to open and very handy to take in bag lunches. This fruit cup snack is a winner. I will be buying it again.
One diced pears cup has only 90 calories. 0 of those calories come from fat. Fantastic. One serving has 0 grams of total fat, 0 grams of saturated fat, 0 grams of trans fat, 0 mg’s of cholesterol, 10 mg’s of sodium, 20 mg’s of potassium, 21 grams of total carbs, 2 grams of dietary fiber, 18 grams of sugars and less than 1 gram of protein. One serving of this snack provided me with forty-five percent of my daily vitamin C need. Dole’s motto is make every day shine. These do put a sweet and fruity shine into my day, I must say.
I loved trying Dole Diced Pears in Juice and writing this product review all about them. Dole has eight different varieties of fruit bowls. I plan to try them all. I do love their diced apples cups. Any fruit snack that is low cal, tasty and vitamin C packed gets my vote. Wether you call this product a fruit bowl, a fruit cup or a fruit snack, it is yummy! I like mine plain, but these are also great with ice cream and yogurt and in fruit smoothies. A great summer snack.
