I end up buying fruit snacks for my kids all the time because it seems like there are always fruit snack coupons in the newspaper. I don't think I've ever paid full price for a box of fruit snacks and it's not like they were that expensive to begin with.
I know that they are not the best snacks, but when I can I try to by organic fruit snacks. They taste the same and they must be a little better. There are also motts fruit snacks that include apple sauce which is better than the normal high fructose corn syrup.
