Whole Fruit Sorbet Review

I know it is December and it is not typical to eat frozen desserts in the winter, but now that I live in Florida it is very acceptable to do so and to go to the beach on Christmas Eve. I would like to debunk the myth that if you live in a cold area that you can’t eat cold treats in the winter because of course you can.  I wouldn’t recommend doing it outside of course but in the comfort of your home it makes a delicious treat, especially if your throat is sore and you want something to soothe it.  I had the chance to try out some Whole Fruit Sorbet.  I don’t think I had ever had sorbet before.  If I had, I didn’t realize it. Honestly I didn’t know the difference between Sorbet and Sherbet. I love sherbet so I figured they were like cousins.  The difference between sorbet and sherbet is, sherbet is made with dairy and sorbet is made without dairy. Therefore sorbet would be a great treat for those with lactose intolerance issues.
Whole Fruit is a part of the J&J Snackfood Company who also makes Super Pretzel, another favorite of mine. Whole Fruit has many delicious flavors of sorbet ,made with chunks of real fruit, Whole Fruit® Sorbet offers a great tasting treat!  It's available in seven refreshing and fruity flavors that deliver a healthier dessert option this holiday season. Whole Fruit is
  •          Fat-free
  •          Dairy-free
  •          Gluten-free
  •          Soy-free
  •          Made with real fruit

I was lucky enough to try Black Cherry, Raspberry, Lemon, Mango and Strawberry.  There are also Peach and Valencia Orange flavors. The sorbet comes in full pint sizes. I prefer pint sizes because you can fit multiple flavors in your freezer at a time.  The sorbets are so creamy. As their name suggests, it is made with whole fruit and there is also real fruit chunks in the sorbet. The fruit gives it an extra goodness in my opinion. My favorite is definitely Black Cherry. I may or may not hoard the whole pint for myself.  I don’t mind sharing the other flavors but the Black Cherry is mine. I did allow Noah to try a spoonful or two of the Black Cherry and he really liked it too.  His favorite flavor is the Raspberry. I like them all. I am not really a mango person but since the Mango is so creamy and good, I do like it too.  Whole Fruit will be a staple in our household. I know they also have Whole Fruit Fruit Bars, which also comes in Black Cherry, that would be perfect for our pier walks and adventures around town.
