  • if i do, i buy the 100% fruit rolls, not the multi-colored fruit roll ups. I don't see anything wrong with offering them as treats though. Everything in moderation lol

  • Nope, like our dentist said, they stay in your teeth long enough to cause major tooth decay and cavities. Same goes for fruit gummy snacks. They are loaded with sugar..

  • I had them when i was a kid!! I loved them!! We didnt get them very often, but like one every now and then as a treat.. My dad used to say it would "clog" us up if we ate to many.. lol.

  • I'm amazed how many people dont let their kids have them ever! thats weird to me.. Do you children drink juice, yohoo., eat fruity cereal.. ect? those are all loaded with sugar and some are loaded with high fructose corn syrup...
    One fruit rollup isnt gonna kill ya!

  • fruit snacks are gummy snacks...ya know the same isle you buy the roll ups in...they have spider man, my little pony, princess, dino, all kinds, just the same crap. they are "vitamin c"...the only reason i dont let my son eat it is cuz it sticks to your teeth
