Raisels Fruity Flavored Raisins Review & Giveaway

>Chances are, you’ve had a raisin or two in your life.  I know I have.  My kids LOVE raisins- they love “red raisins” (dried cranberries) as well.  They were really excited when we got an entire box in the mail of fruity raisins…Raisels!  A bonus for them was that the Raisels come in 6 packs, in little boxes.  I’m always buying larger sizes and putting snacks into reusable containers so the boxes were almost as much fun as trying the new treats!

Raisels are white raisins that come in peach, lemon, watermelon, orange and apple flavors.  We got to try some of all but the watermelon.  My son was delighted to learn we received peach flavor- since my 5 year old and I are both allergic to peaches, that meant he didn’t have to share the flavor, at all.   The jokes are super corny but the kids like them on each box!!
Simple ingredients mean Raisels are the simply delicious anytime-anywhere snack. 100% Vitamin C, real dried fruit golden raisins, less added sugar than sweetened dried cranberries! Make Raisels the healthy alternative to cookies, candy and sugary fruit snacks.

#1 Ingredient is REAL FRUIT

100% US RDA for Vitamin C

Rich in Antioxidants

Fat Free

Cholesterol Free

No High Fructose Corn Syrup or Artificial Sweeteners

No Sodium

Kosher Certified by the Orthodox Union

I’m happy my kids like Raisels- we shared some with a friend of mine, for her kids- but she decided to try a few and I’m fairly certain her kids never saw the boxes- she was enjoying them for herself! 

My kids were not as thrilled with the non- sour flavors as they were the sour.  They have a ‘thing’ for sour.  I think they taste pretty good, although the orange was my favorite.  My 5 year old really likes the apple and the little kids think peach is just super.  I’m more into the sweeter end of things but these are really good sour treats!  I really wish I’d gotten a shot of my 3 year old when the “sours” hit his tongue- every time he’d make the same face and then finish eating the raisel, and go back for more. 

These would be fun to add to trail mixes, in different combinations with different other foods to see what combinations we can come up with!
