General Mills Ordered to Change Images of Strawberry Fruit Roll-Ups Box
A Consumer watch dog group in California recently sued the Golden Valley Minnesota Company saying that their strawberry Fruit Roll-Ups don’t actually contain strawberry’s and it should not be marketed as such.
So for any of you that may have been fooled, fruit roll-ups do not contain real fruit but more so corn syrup and other ingredients to give it that delicious flavoring. I know that fruit roll-ups and fruit snacks are a big hit in our house, we actually have to hide some of the boxes in our bedroom or the kids will pile through all of them in a day.
Starting in 2014 they will not have pictures of Strawberry’s on the packaging and will be more up front about the actual ingredients. So far the only target is the strawberry flavor, so eat the other flavors at your own risk.
