Go Blue with Buddy Fruits! #Review + #Giveaway

Part of MBP's Summer Splash

We've been on the go quite a bit this summer, and it can be hard to hit the road and make sure that my son is getting a nutritional breakfast or snack. When we travel, or even when we're just out running some errands, I always make sure that I have a couple of Buddy Fruits pouches on hand! They are so yummy, and convenient, and best of all- they contain real fruit!

Easy to squeeze and lots of fun to eat, Buddy Fruits was the very first food pouch to hit the US market, made for little hands. We're big fans of Buddy Fruits, and we're very excited to announce that they have teamed up with the Smurfs, in celebration of the new The Smurfs 2 Movie! That's right- Buddy Fruits has gone blue!

Smurfs & Buddy Fruits Gift for Balian... I love the box!

We were lucky enough to partner with Buddy Fruits for a fun little gift basket review, filled with Smurfs goodies... and of course, Buddy Fruits pouches!

Wow- look at this loot! Yummy stuff, and fun stuff, too!

Our adorable gift basket from Buddy Fruits contained two 4-count boxes of Smurfs Buddy Fruit Pouches, an Apple Cinnamon pouch, blended fruit pouch and a Coconut Smoothie pouch. It also contained a $1.00 off coupon for Buddy Fruits, a Papa Smurf Plush Doll and a Smurfs 2 Sticker Sheet!

A very sweet little boy is going to love waking up to this sweet surprise from Buddy Fruits!

Silly Smurf 2 Stickers...

Our Buddy Fruits Gift Package arrived on a Saturday morning, just before breakfast. So, I opened up the box and removed some of the items, and set up a little surprise at the breakfast table for Balian. We had planned to run errands that day, and we were going to do a quick mini-donut breakfast before leaving the house. I set out a couple of the donuts for Balian, and also went ahead and opened up one of the Buddy Fruit pouches for him. I also set the stickers and the Papa Smurf doll by his place at the table, so he'd have a special surprise!

Special breakfast treat with Papa Smurf and Buddy Fruits!

Balian loves his Buddy Fruits! I love that they are nutritious, and mess-free! He had a lot of fun with the Smurf goodies, and as a special treat, I squeezed four of the Buddy Fruits pouches into ice pop molds and then stuck them in the freezer to make our own frozen fruit pops! They tasted great, and they were a lot of fun for Balian to gobble up and enjoy!
