Thank you for the box we received today! We got straight into it and little miss two year old enjoyed eating hers while chilling in the couch watching paw patrol! I may have snuck one in too….. love them!! We have enjoyed trying these snacks out, perfect way to end our Friday 😍


Loved being a part of the trial. My son and I loved these. Such a nice quick snack when we went for a bike ride. Love the flavours, couldn’t pick a favorite. Nice and convenient. My daughter wasn’t really a fan but we made up for it. These didn’t last long in the cupboard. Will definitely be trying to find these in the supermarket as my son will love them in his lunchbox.


Loved both flavours, great for mid afternoon snack. Kids all loved them, would definitely purchase. Thanks so much.


These fruit bars were a hit with my five and eight year old. They are a great and different way to add fruit to the lunchboxes when the kids are bored of the fresh fruit on offer. I like that they are only made of three ingredients and feel better offering this over dried fruit to my children. I personally liked the simple and easy to read packaging however my oldest said the packaging could be more fun, bright and kid friendly.


My 5yo son loved these! He would ask me in the morning when we were making his lunch if he could have ‘one of those special fruit things’ and it was guaranteed to be all gone when he got home. The 12yo boys grunt more than talk but I noticed they soon disappeared from their lunchboxes too!


My family (adults and 8 and 6-year-old children) enjoyed these fruit bars. They definitely feel much healthier compared to other fruit string-type products. Handy to come in a box and the price seems reasonable for a quality product. I have seen them in the supermarket and will buy again. Thanks for the box to trial.

    Trialed and loved these, they didnt last long and really tasty.

    We absolutely loved this product. Bit pricey but we do buy it on the odd occasion and perfect for a lunch box filler. My daughter loves fruit so this is very handy to pop in your handbag for a snack on the go with no mess.

    We received the raspberry & strawberry fruit flats to trial. Both Miss 8 & Miss 6 found the texture a bit strange to begin with but they loved the flavour so persevered! Now both girls enjoy grabbing these as a snack on the go as they take wrapper free lunches to school – great to have in your handbag and bonus that they are full of good nutrients and take up little space!

    My 3 kids LOVED these, especially my youngest, she would of had the whole box if I did not hide them, have brought 2 boxes since for school and daycare. Got the tasty approval from all of them and have been asked to make sure they are in the pantry all year round. Best trial – Thanks 🙂

    We received a box of the Annie’s Summer Fruits fruit flats – “apple & apricot” flavour plus “apple and mango passion flavour” to trial in my 11 year old’s lunchbox. She preferred the apple and mango passion ones, purely from not being an apricot fan. Of course I had to try too! Texture reminded me of a flat version of roll-ups we had back in my day! I don’t recall them being healthy options though and weren’t allowed them often, so it is nice that these are “nothing but fruit”. Can definitely taste the apricot in that flavour over the apple, the mango passion was nice and naturally sweet. While they definitely aren’t anything substantial for lunch, they are a quick, easy and healthy addition to the lunchbox as a side snack and can slot in any lunchbox. Think we will buy the Berry Fruit ones to try next as we are definitely berry fans in this house! Thanks for the trial!

    Thank you for the trial, sorry for the late review! My 5 year old wasn’t too sure about the texture to start with but after a couple of bites he loved them! He prefers the mango over the strawberry ones flavour wise. My 15 year old also tried them and enjoyed them too, he said they tasted good and they are quick to eat when he is on the go and busy with school and sports. Good addition to the lunch boxes, however I did notice they were a bit on the more expensive side…would purchase but only when on special to be honest.

    These were 50/50 between my two youngest, my girl didn’t like how sweet and thick they were, she said her jaw got tired trying to finish her bite, but my son really enjoyed the taste, I think it was a bit thick for him but he still ate them and asked for another, I liked that fact that they are a great snack while out instead of a typical lollie.

    These were absolutely delicious, i loved the fact that they were tasty and also nutritious my son liked the strawberry ones the best. I found they were great for the ride home from school as a quick snack

    Sorry we got hit with covid so took a while to get around to trialling our flats!! I had one son who liked them and one who didn’t particularly like them! The one that didn’t like them found them a bit too sickly sweet for his taste, my son who likes them said they were sweet like he likes ( definitely the sweet tooth child) and a little sour he said lol. They both liked the texture of the flats but the son who liked them said they were a little thick for him. They both reckon there should be more flavours in the box that would be super awesome! All in all I have one son who now wants them in his lunches and the other one waiting for me to get some other flavours for him to try 🙂 Thanks Annie’s and Kidspot

    These Annie’s fruit flats are delicious! They are tastefully packaged however I took them along as road trip snacks and unfortunately the box did give way.
    All my children tried them and everyone except my 8 year old texturally challenged child enjoyed them so much.
    I think the other children thought they were lollies and I really appreciated that our almost 2 year old took so long to eat hers as it passed some time on the (8hour) drive!!!
    The older children ate them much faster and I did wish they were abit bigger. I enjoyed mine and it actually was more filling than I expected. I think I would be most likely to buy these for me and keep them in my handbag as they are so small and light but nutrient dense!
    The flavours were all enjoyed by everyone. I did prefer the strawberry and apple as it was abit sweeter!
    Thanks Annie’s and Kidspot for the trial!

    We trialed the Summer Fruits: Packaging made to look like recycled paper though Im not sure if it actually was and the bar wrappers also but it was just plastic, probably to keep in the freshness.
    The Apple and Raspberry first bite was a real taste bud hit. The Apple and Strawberry smoother but more of the apple taste.
    5year old took one bite and didn’t like it.
    11year old gave A&R an 8 and the A&S a 9. Wasn’t to fond of it at first but did request more.
    Myself Im not into them and they are $7 to buy. at the moment on there website they have a special for $4.26, now that’s more appealing.
    Thanks Annies for the trial 🙂
