Video Product Review and Giveaway: That’s It Fruit Bars

129 Comments 14589 views

My first video product review. How fun are these? Well, for me at least.

Less Writing = Less Typos. Considering my track record, that’s a bonus. HOWEVER, instead of a typo I made a ‘speach-o.’ Throughout the video I say “Peach” when I really mean “Apricot.” The three flavors are Cherry, Pear and APRICOT. Not Peach. Oy vey.

Here’s the deal. Watch the video, leave a comment and be entered to win your very own box of That’s It to try for yourself. That’s 12 free bars! I’ll pick a winner on Wednesday. Sorry, U.S. residents only. :(

    These look great and I would love to have them for the kidlet. She LOVES fruit, and these would make it an easy way to bring snacks everywhere. She’d want the cherry, of course.

    Great video and great snack idea! My kids would love them as much as I would! Love, love, love the simple ingredients!

    Sounds yummy! I bet my kids would love them!

    January 14, 2012

    They look and sound yummy. I like simple foods with simple ingredents. I think my kids would love these as well. My son had a child in his class with a severe nut allergy so we are only allowed to give him snacks for school that are nut free.

    They sound so good! Enter me please!

    January 14, 2012

    So I have to wonder, you said you aren’t a big peach fan (which would be why you might not like peach flavored things :-) but how do you feel about apricot? :-) Either way they sound yummy! I bet Lilly would L-O-V-E them too!

    roni

    January 14, 2012

    I was waiting for someone to ask that! lol I like apricots more than peaches. But either way the Apricot ones are the most tart of the 3 and the most dense. It’s that over the “flavor” that puts them on the bottom of the list for me, if you know what I mean.

    I would love to try those bars. I am always looking for new bars to stash in my purse for when I am on the go.

    Barbara

    January 14, 2012

    I love the fact that they only have 2 ingredients.
    Lots of foods of there are loaded with junk. sound healthly to me.
    thanks for letting us try.

    Tracy R.

    January 14, 2012

    Love the idea- and that you are actually eating them on the video. I have been cutting down to more whole foods… and this would be a great snack on the go option when you don’t have time to get a messy fruit in.. :)

    Cami

    January 14, 2012

    look yummy and simple! great for on-the-go and in kid’s lunch boxes! thanks for the review. what is the cost?

    Kim R.

    January 14, 2012

    This look and sound delish! My mouth is watering from the cherry….yum!

    roni

    January 14, 2012

    You can buy them off their website for $19.99. It’s a pack of 12 so $1.67 a bar.

    Amy L.

    January 14, 2012

    I’ve not seen these before, but they look great!

    Nikki

    January 15, 2012

    Definitely wouldn’t turn down the chance to try them. Fruit has always been a winner in my book. When I was a baby I wouldn’t eat my cereal until I had my fruit first. lol

    Kim F

    January 15, 2012

    Looks good! I am always looking for a changeup in my snack time – and if it’s all fruit – BONUS! :O)

    Kayla

    January 15, 2012

    Becky

    My son and daughter-in-law would be proud that Grandma has a snack like this in her pantry.

    Jessica

    January 15, 2012

    They look yummy!!

    Julie

    January 15, 2012

    Kathleen

    January 15, 2012

    I remember you posted about these while you were on your vacation and they sounded great. I love dried fruit.. prunes, apples, pears!, apricots so these sound super yummy. I’d love a chance to win, but honestly i’ll probably order some anyway. THanks for the review! Can you order just one flavor or do they just come in boxes of 12 variety packs? I guess i’ll find out :)

    Melissa

    January 15, 2012

    I loved your review, even with the errors! I will have to look and see if Wegmans carries the bars!

    Aimee

    January 15, 2012

    Great video Roni! You had me cracking up over the whole Apricot/Peach thing. The bars look delicious. I also love that they don’t have any crazy ingredients.

    Nancy Mihalich

    January 15, 2012

    Yummmmmm…….they look like Luna bars. I can’t wait to try That’s It bars! Your video was so cute and informative! Thanks!

    Debbie Zimmer

    January 15, 2012

    Those look yummy.. And what a great idea to keep them in your purse for a quick healthy snack.. Would love to win these..

    Lynette S.

    January 15, 2012

    I would love to try these, and see if the Kid would eat them, especially when we’re out of fresh stuff for the lunch box!

    Dina

    January 15, 2012

    These look good, and I’d love to try them. Thanks for the chance!

    Aimee

    January 15, 2012

    Would love to try these! Love the video!

    Lisa

    January 15, 2012

    These look pretty good. And seem very nutricious. Their web site seems to claim that because they are pure fruit, they are zero points plus on the WW plan. It doesn’t sepcificlaly say it, but it says that fruit is zero points and seems to imply that these are just fruit. Not sure if WW would agree completely because they count fruit when not eaten simply by itself, but at the very least, it seems like a low calorie/point alternative to a granola or prtein bar! Would love to win a box to try.
    PS – I think peach would taste better than apricot. Apricots seems too tart to me compared to peaches…. your blunder on the flavor makes it seem that you were almost wishing the company would make peach. Mee too!!

    Valerie

    January 15, 2012

    I love Lara bars but don’t eat them often because I have a nut sensitivity sometimes (I’m a freak of nature apparantly). I love that there are only two ingredients.
    I want to win!!!!

    Paula

    January 15, 2012

    Sounds yummy! I’ll probably try them either way as well.

    HOPE

    January 15, 2012

    wish i could try all the product you get to sample for free but we all cant be in your position. enjoy all your freebies, ill keep going to the church for free food!

    Amber

    January 15, 2012

    Sounds great, and I could get my kids to eat them!

    Alison

    January 15, 2012

    I would love to win! These sound great :)

    Kathy R.

    January 15, 2012

    Thanks for the product review. I loved your correction bubbles…made me laugh :~)

    I think I will definitely look for them and try the cherry one, and maybe the pear. I’m not a fan of apricot.

    Annette Oldenburg

    January 15, 2012

    I would love to try the bars! Thanks for the honest opinions!

    erin

    January 15, 2012

    Awesome! I’m going to look for these. I have a 4 year old who would eat a whole bag of sugar if I let her and maybe the sweetness of these would satisfy her without all of the bad ingredients she seems drawn to.

    Laura

    January 15, 2012

    I would love to try these! :)

    BigTickles

    AmandaRunz

    January 15, 2012

    I want to try these!

    And water just seriously came out of my nose and I laughed out loud when “OMG it’s APRICOT!” came on the screen.

    You crack me up!

    Nancy

    These look good. would love to win

    Lori

    January 15, 2012

    These look really good. I think I would like the apricot because I like apricot anything (or peach)! I loved in the video where the word apricot got larger each time you said peach!

    teresa

    January 15, 2012

    Sound great! Would love to try them.

    Andrea

    January 15, 2012

    You are dearling, and I’m not saying that because I want to win. I started WW 5 days ago and I’m so nervous about finding healthy, on-the-go, busy-mom, kind of snacks. I love fruit…so these are right up my alley. I’m excited to order some. Thanks again, for being a little blessing in my day while looking for courage and inspiration.

    Andrea

    Erin

    Ideanna

    January 15, 2012

    Wow!!! I am still shocked that these bars only consist of two ingredients!!! Do they taste kind of like dried fruit bars?

    Tracy

    January 15, 2012

    Those look absolutely delicious! Thanks for the opportunity to win some.

    Thea

    January 16, 2012

    Seriously cracking me up with the peach/apricot thing! Anyway, those look pretty tasty and I also love that there’s not a bunch of “stuff” in them :)

    Julie

    January 16, 2012

    One of the reasons I don’t like so many protein/fruit/cereal bars out there is that almost every bar seems to contain either a horrendous amount of calories or just way too much sugar for me to tolerate. But I think That’s It Bars really solve the two dilemmas for me as it’s low in calories and no added sugar with just the natural sweetness from the fruit itself. And being that apple is a base fruit for these bars, that is just a HUGE plus for me (yes, an apple fanatic here. lol). I’ve been purposely staying away from all sorts of bars (despite how convenient they are when you are in a hurry), but I think these bars could get me to love them again and incorporate them in my daily diet. Thank you for an awesome review, Roni! AND I love how you called it a “speach-o” lol so clever and funny way to name a mistake! haha

    Carolhardin@HCG Diet Hialeah

    January 16, 2012

    Yes, I do agree with Julie,apple is one of the best fruit for the health. In fact I do not have any problem with other fruits too. And thank you Roni for such a lovely recipe.

    Emily

    January 16, 2012

    Oh man. I really want to try the cherry. I love cherry everything.

    roni

    January 16, 2012

    Ideanna – I never tried a dry fruit bar, not that I can think of, so I’m not sure what you mean.

    Patty

    January 16, 2012

    The video concept is nice – it is nice to see the size of the bars! The flavors offered are different and sound much more unique than most available in the store. I love the two ingredients!

    Sam

    January 16, 2012

    These sound so great!! I would love to try the Peach! ha ha ha ha, I kid, I kid! … The Cherry sounds very good but I think I would like all 3 flavors – what a great nutritious snack, I hope I win, I would love to try them!!

    Moxie

    Erica

    January 17, 2012

    I would love to try those bars, as you said, it is a nice alternative to trying to bring fruit to work and keep it in the fridge (as I do like my fruit to be cold) and the room temp of the bars would be a nice change.
    Great post Roni!

    Jeri Lyn

    January 17, 2012

    Hi Roni,
