We recently had the opportunity to try DOLE Fruit in Jars. This was my first time to try this product. I have seen the product in the grocery store but never purchased it before. I immediately regretted that it was my first time to try it upon opening the jar. We LOVE to eat fruit at our house. We eat it alone, we mix it with Greek yogurt and even cottage cheese.
The major benefit with DOLE Fruit in Jars is the time savings. There’s no cutting, peeling or mess. Just open the jar and you are ready to taste the goodness of the all-natural, ready-to-eat fruit. Now that is convenient! If you are like me you need something quick in the morning. I really like the resealable lid. Simply scoop out the necessary amount of fruit and reseal the jar. Yep, it is that easy. You don’t have to worry about waste and you can easily save your fruit for later. Plus you don’t have to dirty a dish or look for a container with lid because the DOLE Fruit in Jars is ready for you!
Each jar contains five full servings of fruit and are packed in nutritious 100% Fruit Juice. I loved how fresh the fruit tasted and that it didn’t have that added sugar taste. The DOLE Fruit in Jars are available in the canned fruit section at select grocery retailers at only $2.99 per jar.
DOLE Fruit in Jars are available in 5 varieties:
- DOLE Fruit in Jars Mandarin Oranges
