Ok, I had several different ideas for a post today, but I think we'll go with something that's been patiently awaiting it's turn for a review. Way, way back in the... early summer I think, I spied these fruit bars that are new to my area (if not new in general). It took awhile before I made it back to Shaw's to grab them, so I decided to grab one of each style.
Fruit Dips So Fresh Strawberry Bars
premium frozen fruit bars dipped in either milk chocolate or greek yogurt
over four years.

Man these things seem small...
Ok, I'm going Greek first. I cant tell if they smell tangy, or if that's just the strawberries... well it doesn't taste tangy at first lick. I'm going in for the first bite... Wow, that strawberry has some fresh bite to it, very nice!
The shell is holding up well, it's sticking to the bar and not falling apart like some coatings. You could probably call it chalky, but that sounds offensive/negative. Gritty? hehehehe, I just slid the last inch of the coating off for sampling. I can't really describe the flavoring, it's not bad though. How about calling it waxy? No, still sounds bad.
Now it's just me and the strawberry filling. Man that's some vibrant flavoring. I can't thing of anything as potent. There's definitely a frozen strawberry vibe to it. I was half tempted to call it a frozen coolatta.
Man, why did I wait so long to try these? They really are fruit dipped. the funny thing is that I brought up one of each to try, but it was so vibrant, I don't really feel like I need to try the chocolate one right now.
Ok, I finally tried the chocolate covered and I have two notes, well 3 really. 1, I still like these. 2, I realized these have a bit of balsamic bite to them. 3, the milk chocolate coating is fine but won't be able to satisfy any kind of chocolate craving (at least not one that's Dubba sized). These are definitely worth a try if you see them
On Second Scoop: It's been like a month since I had these last and I thought I remember the chocolate being my favorite, but it's the Greek yogurt that is really clicking with me tonight; The added flavoring from the coating is mild, but that means the bite of the strawberry really shines through and just really hits the spot as my dinner slowly stews on the stove.
Verdict? nice light treat
Buy Again? yup
