Del Monte Fruit Refreshers are a modern, delightful twist on Fruit Cup snacks that combine luscious fruit chunks with delicious, slightly sweetened fruit water to create enticing flavor combinations making it the perfect healthy adult snacking option. Available in two unique varieties, Pineapple with Passion Fruit Flavored Fruit Water and Mandarin Oranges with Coconut Water, Del Monte Fruit Refreshers are wonderfully refreshing without being too sweet.
As an actress and founder of the lifestyle blog FitKatbyKatrinaBowden.com, Katrina Bowden has a fast-paced lifestyle and a need for delicious, nutritious snacks that taste great, keep her energized and are easy to grab and go.
"Del Monte Fruit Refreshers make smart snacking easy! This is the snack that I can throw in my bag every day to enjoy whenever I need a moment to refresh," said Bowden. "That can be before yoga, after a long day on set or wherever my day takes me."
Katrina has these tips for taking Time to Refresh this summer:
- Not Too Serious: Life is short, have a little fun! I'm not afraid to bring out my inner kid and let loose. That's why when I discovered the first ever Fruit Cup snack made just for adults by Del Monte it really resonated with me! It brought back childhood memories but with a fresh take.
- Take a Stroll: Being active is a huge part of my daily life. I love going on walks with my husband and our dog...or a good, energizing hike. Sometimes when the day gets crazy and I need a break from it all to clear my head, I just get up and go!
- Afternoon Refresh: Everyone's day can get hectic, but it's important remember to take a break and enjoy the little things that make you happy. Sort of like a little "me" time throughout the day. Right now, I'm loving new Del Monte Fruit Refreshers. They aren't too sweet and I savor every bite.
- Guessing Games: As with any fitness regimen, it's key to keep your muscles guessing so I'm always changing up my exercise routine. You can find me at a cycling class, Pilates and heart pounding boot camp classes! I'll try anything!
- Refuel: I'm always looking for healthy post workout snacks, Del Monte Fruit Refreshers are a great, natural way to replenish guilt-free with 100 calories or less.
Available in two tropical flavors nationwide, Del Monte Fruit Refreshers contain one serving of fruit, no high fructose corn syrup, no artificial flavors or artificial sweeteners, and are non-GMO and BPA intent-free with 100 calories or less per serving.
- Pineapple in Passion Fruit Flavored Slightly Sweetened Fruit Water is brilliantly refreshing with a sparkle of pineapple and a luxurious splash of passion fruit flavored water.
- Mandarin Oranges in Slightly Sweetened Coconut Water is a cool and refreshing treat for summertime with revitalizing coconut water and tangy mandarin orange slices that will leave you refreshed.
"From the beginning, we set out to make a Fruit Cup snack targeting our adult consumers. Our research indicated that while kids enjoy our Fruit Cup snacks, so do adults, yet most of what is in the marketplace today doesn't target adult needs for more adventurous flavors, larger sizes, and more intriguing and convenient packaging," said Joanna Komvopoulos, Senior Assistant Brand Manager for Del Monte. "We're excited to partner with Katrina Bowden, she's a natural fit for Del Monte. As a busy actress she understands the importance of making smart snacking decisions on the go."
