Maybe a silly question…

Baby food or grown-up snack?

…but I’ve been seeing these little fruit snacks (varying brands) everywhere. At Starbucks, the grocery store and even the gas station. As you can see, my curiosity finally got the best of me and I picked one up. Simple pureed fruit, not bad, but nothing all that extraordinary. It kind of a rare convenient Paleo-friendly snack that would be useful for short trips and backpacking. But seeing as it’s cute, pureed and easy to eat, it begs the question:

Just for kids or adults too?


  • I suppose if you wanted to eat them you could- the ones I have tasted are terrible though. I don’t even feed them to my kids.

      If you’re used to sweeter purees then they would definitely be more bland. I haven’t tried any of the veggie-heavy ones yet, so mine have all been pretty fruity.

    I have totally eaten babyfood before, so I am not one to ask about kid vs. adult. You can make dried fruit snacks from mashed fruit, and I’d likely do that before buying something.

      I’ve been wanting to make fruit snacks and leathers, just haven’t had time to pull out the dehydrator yet. Have any good recipes to recommend?
