Clif Kid Organic Twisted Fruit Rope (Better Than Twizzlers…)

I absolutely love our whole foods way of eating.  I wouldn’t turn back for all the Pepsi in the world.  I love how good we feel and how delicious real food tastes!!

But sometimes I do miss junk…like Twizzlers.  And candy corn (shh).  And admitedly, sometimes I go right ahead and allow myself to have the junk, which always turns my stomach inside out.  :(

That’s what is so much fun about Clif Kid Twisted Fruit.  Eating a fruit rope makes me feel like I’m eating candy, when I’m really eating fruit.  And it doesn’t make my gut hurt later.

My kids like them too.  But apparently I’m the kid at heart here, because I got a sudden hankering for them today, looked them up, and found a really great price on Amazon.  $12.99 for a 24 pack is a great deal.  I snagged it.

What can I say?

I blame it on the fact that Halloween is coming and candy is all over the grocery stores and Walmart, just begging us all to indulge (and get sick).  Clif Kid Twisted Fruit Rope to the rescue.

It’s the little things that make me happy.  ;)

(Oh, and I used Swagbucks to help me with my purchase.  If you haven’t signed up for Swagbucks yet, you really should.  It’s a great way to help pay for necessities, or the occasional treat.)

    We love Panda all natural cherry or raspberry licorice (you can find it on Vitacost) as a Twizzler substitute (no black licorice fans in our house)! Haven’t found a good replacement for candy corn yet, though!

    Ha! If I could find a sub for candy corn, that could be dangerous! :)

    I love those things! You might hate me if I tell you that sometimes I find them at the grocery salvage store for $1 a box. Needless to say I buy every single one they have.

    What?! Wow, if I was the sort of person who stuck out her tongue at people, I may be doing that to you right now… ;)

    No really, I’m very happy for you. Really. :)

    What is a grocery salvage store and where do you find them? Sounds like my kind of place.

    They sell damaged or slightly out of date products that grocery stores can’t sell. Most things are not going to be harmful to eat when they’re a little bit out of date. You usually have around 60 days from the date that’s printed on it. And for damaged goods? I don’t really care if the box is crushed as long as the inner packaging is still intact. Inventory is always changing just depending on what they are able to obtain from the reclamation warehouses so you have to check in often. You can try doing a web search for” grocery salvage stores” or “discount grocery” in (your town). Hope you can find one!

    Hi,

    I know this might be bad blog etiquette, but I want to invite you to join a cause with me. I am a long time reader of your blog, and we are loving the “Learn your letters” curriculum in our house right now. My husband loves all your “real man food” recipes.

    You have a very influential blog, and I am trying to raise awareness about forced child labor in the chocolate industry. I would love for you to join my cause. If not, that’s ok, but I wanted to extend and invite. Here’s the link:

    Thanks,

    I’ve had these before they are a pretty good alternative! I wouldn’t say they taste exactly the same, but I like them :) I hope I don’t find an alternative to candy corn or I will be in trouble to :P

    I have been reading about the chocolate industry and it makes me very sad poor children…all I can do is pray for them and NOT buy Hersey, and companies like them!

    Yes, after you post a week or two ago about Swagbucks, I finally did sign up! I am trying to figure it out, but so far it is fine, and I’m slowly getting some points!
