Trader Joe's Fiberful Bars, part of our assortment often referred to as "fruit leathers," hail from a small purveyor at the Northern tip of New Zealand's South Island, in the middle of wine country. (No wonder we stumbled upon them.) They are similar to our traditional Fruit Bars in that they start with natural fruit purees that are spread on large sheets and dried, then cut by hand into strips and packaged just for us. They take a turn for the healthier when we add dietary fiber to the fruit, in the form of psyllium husk, flaxseed and inulin (derived from chicory root). This additional fiber boost brings the total fiber up to a whopping six grams per bar, making these a delicious way to add fiber to your diet.
Of course, if Fiberful Bars didn't taste great, there wouldn't be much to celebrate. But since they're bursting with bright, fresh flavors (Apricot, Berry, Blueberry and Fruit & Veg), they really are worth a celebration. Also worthy of celebration? Our price of 59¢ for each Trader Joe's Fiberful Bar. You could travel to New Zealand to find these treasures. But because our audacious adventurers have already done the legwork, you only need to go as far as your neighborhood Trader Joe's to enjoy these healthful treats.
