Recently, CVS was kind enough to send me a few of their new Gold Emblem ABOUND products. While I rarely post about specific product, but rather incorporate them into recipes, this particular product I felt deserved an entire post all on it’s own. In full disclose, CVS is sponsoring this post, but let me say this, when I run out of this product, I’m going to buy more, it’s that good.
The product I’m talking about is called Fruit and Veggie Snack Bars by Gold Emblem Abound. It’s very unassuming, in humble green packaging and the product itself, once unwrapped, looks dull. The appearance is due to the lack of artificial flavors. When do you see bright red in nature…not very often. But let me tell you something, this product did something to me that I won’t soon forget. The minute I bite into it, it transported me back to my childhood.
When I was growing up, my mom packed out lunches. She would usually put in a dessert, whether that was a homemade cookie or something packaged. Occasionally we got Fruit Rollups, usually the off-brand. I loved opening up my lunch and seeing them in there, there are to this day one of my favorite snacks, although it’s kind of weird to go into the store, a 30 year old guy, and buy them for myself. Now that I have a little one, we ‘share.’
So when I bit into the Gold Emblem Abound Fruit bars, I can say that it’s an adult ‘fruit rollup’. It tasted very similar, with more mature flavors and it literally was incredible. I took a second bite and insisted that my wife try them. Like I said before, I rarely endorse products outright, I try and incorporate them into our daily lifestyle, but this product needs no recipe. It’s an incredible go-to that not only has 2.5 servings of fruit but tastes amazing and is free of preservatives and artificial flavors.
I would encourage you when you stop by CVS on your next visit to grab a box, you won’t regret it! This product comes in two varieties, Fruit & Veggie Snack Bars (my absolutely favorite) and Superfruit Snack Bars featuring blueberry and pomegranate.
