SAN DIEGO, Feb. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Stretch Island Fruit Co., best known for its original Fruit Strips, today announced the launch of its new line of Fruit Chewsmade with 100 percent real fruit and crafted with kid-friendly appeal that parents will also appreciate. Available in three tasty varieties, Oh So Very Strawberry, Very Cherry and Raz-Mataz Raspberry, the new, better-for-you fruit snacks contain no artificial sweeteners or preservatives to make on-the-go snacking easy for discerning families.
