I have recently done a liquid fast. I could have juice. I could have water, and I could have any other “clear” liquid. (For more information, check out Not by Bread Alone.) After about 10 days, I was sick of swallowing. I wanted to chew! I turned to Smooze! fruit ice in order to have a healthy, completely natural frozen fruit juice that I could suck, chew, scoop with a spoon, and of course, enjoy with every bite/sip.

Pros: I really loved the creative look of these wonton-shaped fruit ice. 🙂 They could be attractive to kids (as they look cool enough to qualify as a dessert for a child), and the handheld packaging offers a fun, outdoor popsicle for adults and kids alike.
Cons: The biggest issue I have with the appearance of these snacks is the fact that when they’re frozen (which is how I like to eat them), they don’t “work”. I found myself having to stick them in the microwave (lol..bad idea, ’cause there’s foil on the inside..whoops) or let them sit out for a few minutes before diving in. The cardboard outside kept the ice firm for a while making them harder to eat than I thought necessary.
Pros: I love the taste of the fruit ice! I love that the flavors Smooze! has chosen are not “classic” and overdone. I really have loved the coconut mango ice — what I dynamic combination!
Cons: No cons here!
Pros: These are frozen puréed fruit juices! They are moist and creamy (but dairy free!).
Cons: No cons here!
What I Love
I’m so thankful for these 100% natural fruit ice. They’re only 70 calories, preservative-free, and sweetened with natural cane sugar. That, I think, is the best aspect of these summer popsicles. Healthy desserts. Healthy snacks. Healthy and wonderful.
What I’d Improve
I would definitely improve the packaging of these ice snacks. They were a little disappointing in that they were a little messier than wanted as well as a little hard to get out of the won-ton shaped packaging.
Overall Rating: B+
