I received a packet of these fruit bites in the December Vegan Box. The gimmicky thing about these bad boys is that they have edible paper on the outside so that your fingers don’t get sticky when you’re eating them.
Products made by Just Bites are all natural and have no added sugar. All of the bites are made using cranberries which contain lots of nutrients and antioxidants. Potential health benefits of eating cranberries include a lower risk of some kinds of cancer, urinary tract infections and more. The cranberry and prune bites are part of their range which is vegan-friendly and uses apple extract rather than honey to glue the fruits together. The bites are all raw as well as being gluten and dairy free.
These bites were actually quite tasty. Sometimes these raw health foods can be lacking in the flavour department but I found these were just sweet and flavoursome enough. And quite filling as well which is good.
The only slightly weird thing was the edible paper. A good idea in theory as it does keep the fingers from getting sticky, but it was a little bit too thick to easily bite through. It also kinda had the texture of paper as well. Usually edible paper is really thin and if anything tastes slightly sweet, but this didn’t taste like anything really except for…paper!
All up though I would probably buy these to have around the house for a sweet and healthy snack, but I can’t find anywhere to buy them from. I can find the Just Bites company website but it’s just a one-pager and doesn’t say anything about where to buy them from. If you know where to get these from, please leave me a note in the comments!
