|Along with the cherry blossoms of spring, there are new Cherry Raisinets from Nestlé—whole dried Michigan cherries coated with dark chocolate.
If you like the combination of sweet (chocolate) and tart (cherries), this may be your new favorite version of Raisinets.
The bag sports several health claims:
*One-fourth cup of dried fruit counts as 1 serving of fruit. The USDA Dietary Guidelines recommend eating 4 servings of fruit every day, based on a 2,000 calorie diet. However, they didn’t mean 4 servings of chocolate-covered fruit.
To quote Michael Pollan,† “If you’re concerned about your health, you should probably avoid products that make health claims. Why? Because a health claim on a food product is a strong indication it’s not really food….”
For those who like a sweet-and-tart snack.
|If that’s not your concern, enjoy the cherry blossoms and the Cherry Raisinets.|
