Have you tried Edy’s new Antioxidant Fruit Bars? I recently had the chance to taste the Acai Blueberry, Pomegranate, and Goji White Grape fruit bars and they were delicious! What I love about these fruit bars is that they don’t just taste amazingly yummy, but are also good for you too! The Antioxidant Fruit Bars are made with real fruit and are an excellent source of Vitamin C, which helps support immunity plus fights free radicals linked to aging and other diseases. Each bar is only 50 calories and a great cool me down snack during the summer heat!
However, Edy’s Fruit Bars, known as Dreyer’s west of the Rockies, is devoted not just to offering tasty, all natural frozen treats but additionally to doing its part to promote a healthier lifestyle and a greener planet. In 2010, the company partnered with the Fruit Tree Planting Foundation an international nonprofit organization dedicated to planting fruitful trees and plants in places that best benefit communities across the world. Together they launched the Communities Take Root, an annual program dedicated to planting fruit tree orchards in deserving communities nationwide. Their hope is to help alleviate world hunger and global warming by providing fresh fruit to neighborhoods in need , while fortifying areas and improving the environment. The unique collaboration has successfully planted dozen of fruit orchards across America, and is projected to establish 20 more this year!
