Edy's Orange & Cream Fruitbar


[Discontinued] A couple weeks ago I picked up the Edy's ( Dreyer's ) Orange & Cream fruit bar since it's one of the last flavors I haven't tried yet. It's not bad, but I don't think I'll be picking them up again. We are definitely dealing with a more mellow orange flavor here, and not the tangerine tang that was reminding me of their lemonade pops.

The orange / cream mixture is alright, but don't bite into this thinking your gonna taste an orange creamsicle (or an Orange Coolatta for that matter). I'd say it's more orange than creamy. Overall, it's not bad and the cream does a fairly good job of mellowing the whole thing out.

My biggest complaint on these it going to be the mistake of exposing the cream down at the bottom of the popsicle. Guess what? Cream melts faster than an icy popsicle. Even though I eat pretty quick, this pop was trying real hard to repeatedly drip on my hands.

My thoughts are the same on this one, it could be better. There is always a box of the Strawberry fruit bars in my freezer but these only made one appearance.
