RememBear This: Fruit Roll-Ups
Goodness gracious these were tasty. I felt so much cooler than the kids who only got fruit leathers. How many different iterations of these were there? I mean, if you count all the different flavors (Blastin’ Berry Hot Colors, Cherry Orange Wildfire, Crazy Pix Cool Chix Berry Wave, Crazy Pix Wild Ones Blastin’ Berry, Electric Blue Raspberry just to name a few) and all the patterns (Disney characters, Nickelodeon Characters, animals, cars, rainbow, swirls, tongue tattoos, etc) there was endless varieties.
These scrumptious treats were “real fruit and fun, rolled up in one.” Real fruit, really? ‘Cause they tasted like candy, which to me means loads of sugar and HFCS. But a quick look on the box and sure enough they do actually contain fruit…not sure how much needs be to stated that but oh well, they’re too delicious to argue about.
Mom always tells you not to play with your food but then she sends you off on your way with these bad boys in your JanSport. What’s a kid to do now? It’s very confusing. As long as no adults are looking, right? Roll it out, twist it, stretch it and best of all….murder the innocent cartoon characters one extremity at a time with your little baby teeth….I mean…they’re going to fall out anyways so no need to worry about cavities…am I right, huh brotha…high five…no…nothing? See that’s what I get for trying to eat one of these in front of the bullies…now I’m a fruit roll-up. Wait…that didn’t come out quite right….ah…you know what I meant.
Riddle me this…what’s the one snack that your mom packed that everyone else wanted?
