Comments about Sunsweet - Pitted Prunes Smart 60 Calorie Packs:
**Sunsweet Pitted Prunes- Dried PlumsSmart 60 Calorie Packs**O.K. I ‘ll admit that Sunsweet got me. Prunes were not on my list. When I read “ounce for ounce, bite for bite, BETTER than fresh fruit” and I saw all those magical words –antioxidants, fat free and fiber…they had me hook, line and shopping cart.I’ve tried prunes before from a canister and thought they were “all right” but at this point in life I thought if they are this good for me, maybe I should try them again. After all they have antioxidants to boost my immune system, neutralize free radicals, natural nutrients for energy and fiber to regulate my digestive system and help control weight. Yes, yes but will they taste good? They did. They were plump, moist and slightly sweet. They were a bit chewy but not too much so. You’ve probably seen many of the “100 calorie” packs of other snacks and I always think on the positive side the packs are a great tool for portion control but on the negative side I consider all of the extra packaging. I don’t think portion control for prunes is the same issue as with, for example, Gold Fish crackers or Oreo cookies but I will say that the prunes in these individual packages were so moist and flavorful that the word “dried” in dried plums seemed a misnomer.There are 8 individual packages in bag of **Sunsweet Pite Prunes 60 Calorie Packs** and each has 3 plump prunes, which I found to be a satisfying snack. They tasted much better than I expected, possibly because they were so much moister than those I’d had before.**Nutrition Facts**Calories 60**Fat 0**Cholesterol 0**Sodium 0 **Potassium 190 milligrams**Carbs 16**Dietary Fiber 2 g**Sugars 8 g**Protein 1 g**Vit.

I’ve even quartered them and added them to a salad with soy nuts. The combination of sweet and salty and crunchy and chewy was very appealing.
