Dole Fruit Parfaits sweet treats #DoleParfaitEscape #spon



As you all know I am a working mom who has a busy schedule. I am up ad off to work before the sun comes up. And after a busy day at work I am off to pick my daughter up from school, and when she is home she is famished! She comes home and is ready to eat, and since I am just getting in myself dinner is nowhere near ready.  So I want to give her something that she likes, but something that will not ruin her appetite for the dinner I will be preparing.


So I was very excited to be able to give her a great afternoon treat in the form of  DOLE Fruit Parfaits these are great new treats from dole.  These are fruit cups with a layer of crème. My daughter could not wait to try one but what flavor should she choose? There are three great flavors to choose from:
  • Pineapple and Crème
  • Apples and Crème
  • Peaches and Crème
My daughter wanted to try the Peaches and Crème, she is a big fan of fruit and having the peaches mixed with the cream, this reminded of a dessert. She just adored the Dole Fruit Parfaits. And I was a fan as well, the pineapple reminded me of a tropical treat. The apple was like a an apple pie alamode. I loved the taste of these crème treats, they were lightly sweet  and really helped my sweet tooth. 

 I am always looking for healthy snacks and treats for my family. Sure some eating some chips or a candy bar may be a quick snack idea, but I do not want to fill my family with excess salt and fat, and sugar.  Dole Fruit Parfaits naturally low fat, cholesterol free and very low in sodium. Dole Fruit Parfaits are a source of Vitamin C as well.  You can chill them in the refrigerator, or not either way it is delicious.  Dole Fruit Parfaits are just what I was looking for.

These handy container treats will also be great to be packed into a lunch box for a great treat at lunch time. My daughter usually complains that she does not get fun treats in her lunch like her school mates do. So she tries to trade her snacks for “cooler” snacks that her friends have.  My daughter finally approved her lunch treat when I packed her a Dole Fruit Parfait! There was no trading of her treat this day, in face her little friends tried to trade with her they wanted this creamy treat, but my daughter would not budge she wanted to enjoy this herself.  I would highly recommend Dole Fruit Parfaits, your family will love it, and I will surely be purchasing these divine treats again.
Dole Fruit Parfaits can be found in the canned fruit section of select grocery stores and also online. With a suggested retail price of $2.79 per package of four so they are affordable as well.
