Fruitification Jumbo Style

Did you know that 7 out of 10 adults don't eat the recommended amount of fruit daily??? "Fruitification of America" is Libby's newest mission to get fruit, and more of it, into everyone's diet!!! I got a sneak peak into this campaign when I (and my kiddos) were recently sent some samples of their new 6oz Jumbo Fruit Cups!!!

Let me say, that I was a little hesitant about the larger size since I hate wasting food, and that is what kids do!! But I had NOTHING to fear!! My kids (and I) loved these and every bit was finished each time, my 2-yr old always finished hers first!

They are perfect for any age (yes, even you adults) because they are larger, more satisfying and account for almost 40% of your daily fruit intake:) Not to mention they are made from fresh California fruit, so they are very refreshing and tasty! We used them for lunches, snacks and even put one into a fruit salad.... yummmy!

What I knew I would like is the sturdier cup... I am the queen of spilling the juice out of fruit cups and being sticky before I ever get to eat my own food. The Jumbo Cups have a higher lip and so all the juice stays in the cup. I didn't have any spills with these:) Since they are sooo sturdy, I refused to throw any of them away and they held up perfectly in the dishwasher.... they are now our new snack cups! (Gotta love "reusing"!)


GET YOUR OWN!! Libby's Jumbo Cups will be on the store shelves in September and come in 4 delicious favorite flavors: Diced Peached, Diced Pears, Mixed Fruit and Cherry Mixed Fruit! (ARP of $3.39)

WIN YOUR OWN!! Libby's is offering one SIMPLE reader a "sneak peak" of these Jumbo Cups as well. The winner will receive 2 cups of each of the flavors to enjoy for themselves:) To enter, share what your flavor you'd like to try:)

  44. Fruitification fact! Even though Americans know that eating fruit provides important vitamins and nutrients for a healthy lifestyle, most don’t eat enough of these delicious treats. Since Libby’s wants Americans to improve their diets, we’re super-sizing something that’s actually good for everyone! New Jumbo Cups™ will allow your customers to enjoy nutritious and fresh California goodness at home and on-the-go.

    Each Jumbo Cup™ offers 50 percent more fruit compared to the usual 4-ounce fruit cup products currently on the market. The additional fruit in every cup will make it easier for your customers to reach the recommended daily fruit requirements in fewer servings.
