In my efforts to find healthy snacks instead of slipping into the holiday sweets trap, I’ve recently discovered Baobab Foods, Inc. aka The King of Superfruits!
So what is Baobab? It’s a fruit from southern Africa that contains more antioxidants than any other superfruit. Yes, even more than acai, blueberries and pomegranate. Known for its fiber content, more than half of Baobab is ultra-healthful soluble fiber. Learning these facts, I was quite eager to try the fruit.
Luckily Baobab Foods has created the Baobab Fruit Cubes! These bite-sized cubes are perfect for whenever I get that craving between meals. Plus they are just fun to eat! I love that they contain no added sugar. The cubes are only 81 calories per serving, making them some of the healthiest dried fruit around.
Baobab Foods sent me the Fruit Cubes in three different flavors: Mango, Strawberry, and Raspberry! I’m a fan of all three fruits so I was super excited to try out the Baobab fruit in these flavors.
The fruit cubes are the perfect size for snacking, but I also enjoyed taking them to work as an component in my lunch. They are tasty, but not overly sweet. I really enjoyed the fruity taste and I think strawberry was probably my favorite of the three!
Now above I mentioned the fiber content of these cubes. If you need more fiber in your diet, baobab is composed of 50% total fiber of which 75% is ultra-healthy soluble fiber! Great alternative to some of the bland-tasting fiber supplements out on the market. Need more calcium? If you compare the cubes to milk in gram for gram, the fruit cubes contain more calcium!
My son really enjoyed the Mango flavored cubes. He’s always been more of a “citrus” fan, so I’m not surprised! These fruit cubes actually have six times more Vitamin C than orange juice. It was hard to keep him from eating them all. If you are decorating a gingerbread house (or a graham cracker house in our case) this holiday season, these cubes are the perfect size for decorating and a great alternative to candy!
Buy It: Baobab Fruit Cubes will be available for purchase very soon on Baobab Foods’ Web site! They will cost $8.99 for 5.5 oz bag and $18.99 for a 16 oz bag. If you would like to be notified when Baobab Fruit Cubes become available, just leave your name and email HERE.
