      A great, quick way to eat yoghurt on the go

      We bought these recently as a change for my daughter, as she had tried them round a friends house and loved them.I never thought she would, but what do i know?
      They come in a variety of flavours, but my daughter is a fan of the strawberry ones so those are the ones we tend to buy.
      You get 9 frube tubes in a box, which isn't a lot, and they cost £2 for a box, but my local supermarket is forever doing a deal and you can usually but two boxes for £3. This is a great deal as an alternative brand sells at £1 for 6.
      To open, you simply bite or cut the top of the tube, put in your mouth and squeeze for healthy, yoghurty goodness. The only thing you do have to watch is sometimes these spurt out everywhere resulting in a yoghurt related incident!
      These are great for carrying around as a snack as they take up no room at all in a bag and are far less bulky than carrying around more traditional yoghurts.
      They are a great source of calcium, healthy for you, contain no artificial sweeteners or colours, and can even be enjoyed by vegetarians!
      Another great use for them is to freeze them and use them as an ice lolly. This is especially a good idea in the hot summer we are having, and taste a little like a homemade version of one of those milk ice lollies we all used to enjoy as kids!
      My daughter loves them like this, but she is sometimes impatient to wait for them to freeze.
      Overall, these are a real big winner in my house and I fully recommend them. At the moment, they even contain codes for bonus Moshi Monster coins to be used online, so there has never been a better time to stop by and buy some

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Convienient Snack

      I like giving my little boy yoghurts as puddings or breakfast to ensure he gets plenty of calcium even though he's a milk monster.

      The other day we were around my sisters and she gave my little boy an aldi version of these and he devoured it so in my next Tesco shop I ordered these for him. The cost was 18 tubes for £3 (17p each) which works out 3p cheaper than the conventions same brand yoghurt pots but for 10g less.

      Frube is a yoghurt in a tube so great for taking out with you as no spoon needed as long as the aim into the mouth is accurate - no mess. It's a plastic 15cm (approx.) tube with an easy tear corner.

      There are a variety of flavours in the one box peach, raspberry, strawberry and blackberry all of which a tasty and taste like the fruit.

      Frubes are aimed at children as the advertising is very much geared towards them with the cartoons on each individual tube and character names. They twist parents arms also as they read great for strong bones with Vitamin D and Calcium, convenient for lunch boxes and snacks, additive free.

      The shelf life on the boxes I had delivered are 17 days so excellent but they can also be frozen and They are extremely flavour some and thick, I was nicely surprised by these as they are yummy, mess free and a fair price if you don't mind branded costs.

      I would recommend these if you have young children as they have gone down a storm with my children, I also enjoy them when in need of a quick snack and even better they are only 42 calories.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Nice snack when at the right price

      For many families out there with young children, one of the items that tend to be in the fridge are some form of fromage frais. Previously, in our fridge at home I would purchase the little tubs and have done for both of my children over the last 4 years. Recently, this has changed slightly, and both of my children have been eating this particular variation as an alternative, especially over the summer holidays. The last time we bought a box of these from my local Asda store, they were on special offer and cost £1.00, containing 9 tubes.



      Why did I buy these?

      My children were offered these by a fellow parent months ago, and they really enjoyed them. Although I hated the mess that followed, as up to that point they had never eaten one of these before, I thought they were a good idea to use as a snack while out and about. On top of that, the price I paid for the quantity I received per box was the best price at the time of purchase, and checking prices for the same if not similar item, worked out good value.



      What are they?

      9 tubes of fromage frais which contains some fruit puree with the addition of vitamin c.



      How are they packaged?

      This isn't a regular addition to our kitchen so I'm not aware whether the outward packaging remains the same in regards to design, but the fromage frais comes plastic wrappers, almost tube like, with them all housed in a cardboard box. The cardboard box is mainly purple in colour with some pictures of the tubes styled as cartoon characters. On the front it mentions the number of tubes included in the top left hand corner. Just to the side it tells you the make and product name which is ' Petits Filous Frubes '. Beneath that it states it contains calcium and Vitamin D. The 3 flavours are stated (strawberry, peach and red berries ), along with the product not containing artificial colours or sweeteners

      On the side it tells you the ingredients list, nutritional information and company contact details.

      Each tube, depending on the flavour, has a cartoon type character on it.Very brightly coloured with the flavour name at the bottom. To open you have to tear the top as it's partly been done for you. Ingredients and company contact details are on each tube on the back.



      Ingredients

      Fromage Frais, Sugar: 13.3%, Fruits Purée from Concentrate: 5% (Strawberry, Peach, Red Berries (Blackberry, Strawberry, Raspberry)), Modified Maize Starch, Sucrose Syrup: 0.6%, Flavourings, Stabiliser: Guar Gum, Calcium Phosphate, Acidity Regulators: Citric Acid, Sodium Citrates, Preservative: Potassium Sorbate, Vitamin D



      Nutritional Values

      Typical values per 100g
      Energy: 444 kJ/105 kcal
      Fat: 2.8g
      Of which Saturates: 1.9g
      Carbohydrate: 14.9g
      Of which Sugars: 14.5g
      Fibre: 0.1g
      Protein: 5.0g
      Salt: 0.1g
      Calcium: 150mg
      Vitamin D: 1.50µg

      Suitable for vegetarians.



      How do they taste?

      Three flavours are included in this pack-strawberry, red berries and peach. These are obviously something that was bought for the children not myself, but I have had a sneaky slurp to see how they tasted. Each flavour definitely is represented well, as they taste as you would expect. Quite fruity, not sharp or overpowering and no odd aftertaste or chalkiness. Quite sick, but not sickly or tart.

      All three varieties are very creamy in texture to eat, and a similar texture to a traditional potted fromage frais. I'm more convinced the kids don't eat these more like swallow, due to their loose and slightly fluid like texture.

      Some children have an issue with bits in their yoghurt, some don't, but this is perfectly smooth with no added bits to it.



      What do we think?

      My kids love these. They obviously like the taste and are familiar with the taste, as many varieties whether in tube form or pot do tend to have a similar taste and texture to them, so they are used to it. But the biggest draw for them is how the fromage frais is housed, as its much more fun eating it out of a tube than from a pot! But they both find them tasty, fun to eat and easy to hold.

      What do I think?

      If they weren't on offer or the price I paid, I would have thought these were expensive. But £1.00 I think is fair. I like how they're packaged for afew reasons:

      1. Easy to store when not in their box and are singular, whether that's in the fridge, lunchbox or children's bag ( they take up no room! ).

      2. Great if you want to share this type of snack between children for snack time so good portion control.

      3. No need for spoons!

      4. More likely to suffer spillages with pots than with these.

      What I don't like about the packaging is it can get messy once you open these, as the fromage frais has a habit of just oozing out!

      Overall, I think these are a tasty and convenient snack for young children. Personally, I feel there's too much sugar in these but that tends to be the case with similar products of this nature anyway. But I don't allow my children to eat these all the time, and I try to throw in as much variation in regards to dairy products as they allow me!

      Would I buy these again? Yes, but once and awhile when they are on special offer and myself and the kids are doing a lot of travelling, so these would be more convenient and easier to eat than the potted variety.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Great little portions of yoghurt for your little one.

        As a parent I am always on the look out for something tasty to bulk up my daughters lunch, for a small little thing she sure does eat a lot at lunchtime. Usually she has a little platter at lunch and that fills her up for the afternoon eg. Sandwich or wrap, crisps, cheese strings, piece of fruit, biscuits and a yoghurt. I usually buy her petits filous, they are the perfect portion size for her, so when I saw these Yoplait Petits Filous Frubes on offer in my local Asda, I thought I would give them a try.

        == What is it? ==

        The product comes in a large box and contains 9 long sachets of fromage frais, (that's yoghurt made with cheese to anyone who doesn't speak French). You can get different flavours, but I opted for the strawberry flavoured ones, my daughter loves strawberries, so I knew she would love these. Each sachet is 40g and they have an easy to tear top, which when pulled should leave a small hole in the corner from which you can suck the yoghurt out (I use the word "should" loosely there, it depends on how vigorously you tear the top open to how big the hole is). They remind me of sucking on an ice pole when I was a child, when you've sucked all you can out of it you have to fold it up from the bottom to squeeze the last life out of it and into your mouth. On the front of the box it states that they are a source of calcium and vitamin A, good for strong bones. They are suitable for vegetarians and you can freeze them, as long as you do it on the day of purchase.

        == Price ==

        As stated earlier in this review, I purchased these from Asda, as they were on offer for £1.00. At the time of writing this review Sainsbury's have them on offer for 2 for 1 = £2.00, Tescos 2 for 1 = £2.00, Ocado any 2 for £3.50 or £2.00 for 1 box, and Waitrose doesn't have any offers on and they are £2.00 per box. So as you can see, it does pay to shop around, but generally at the moment they cost £2.00 for 2 boxes. The box I purchased on 6th September has a use by date of 30th September, so they do last a few weeks in the fridge.

        == Verdict ==

        My little one absolutely loves these, she does get in a little bit of a mess with them from time to time, but generally nothing escapes her mouth. I will be purchasing these again, whether they are on offer or not, they are the perfect size for my daughters lunchtime pudding, or a handy daytime snack for her, they will definitely be getting added to the packed lunch when we go out for the day too. They don't contain any artificial colours or sweeteners, so that is another plus, although I wouldn't say they are totally good for you, but they are a lot better than your child eating a chocolate dessert for instance. These are 105 calories per 100g serving, which equates to eating 2 and half frubes in one sitting, which isn't too bad really. So, go on get some of these for your child, you can do a lot worse.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Price!

        Before I get stuck into writing this review I must first point out that I am reviewing the pouches and not the tubes fromt this brand. I requested a link ages ago on here to write about these pouches and was told to pop them here so here I am!

        Usually priced at £2.00 in Asda for 6 x 80g of them I was pleased to get these in the reduced section in Asda for a mere 25p and they came in two flavours, apricot and strawberry and within a box. On the front of the box which is purple, orange and with mostly yellow writing on it we are told that they are Yoplait Petits Filous Frubes Pouches, that there are 6 of course within in and the flavour and size is stated as I have listed already. Other information on the box includes ingredients, a nutritional chart and contact details for the manufacturer. Inside the box the pouches are red for the strawberry flavour ones and an orange for the apricot flavour and on each we are simply told what they are, that they must be kept refridgerated and are not suitable to be frozen. They come with no straws and you simply have to tear a section to the top of the pouch to drink them which is very straightforward to do so.

        The Yogurts:

        Whether you have the strawberry or the apricot flavour they taste as you would expect the fruit to. They are creamy, easy to drink though thick and not watery, my only gripe with these for me personally is that they are rather sweet though we are told on the box that they contain no artifical sweetners. The yogurt is also smooth and so with no fruity bits in it and they are gluten free and suitable for Vegetarians. I must admit I prefer the apricot flavour, as they were not so sweet but in all in all these are great, not just for kids but adults alike who like yogurt and great for when we're on the go!

        I'm not sure that I will buy these again at £2.00 for a pack 6 of them again as I do feel that this is a little expensive for what they are but they do taste nice and are fabulous quality not to be quibbled with!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Perfect for lunch boxes!

        I have always insisted on giving my children yoghurts and milky products for puddings - it ensures they get what they need in the way of calcium and they are yummy too - I don't like milk and don't want my children to follow in my footsteps so I give them as many milk products as possible to ensure this doesn't happen.

        Now my oldest son is school age I still want to provide him with healthy items in his lunchbox but yoghurts in their normal containers are too messy. So I was looking for something that was lunchbox friendly and came across Frubes. They are fab! They are yoghurt, but in a plastic tube with a tear off end - perfect for children to use when they are at school.

        You can get Frubes in either a plain strawberry box or a mixed box with different flavours in. The boxes contain nine tubes of yoghurt.

        They are quite expensive for what they are - around £2 a box depending on where you buy them from, but you can quite often get good deals - Tesco for example had buy one pack get two packs free - now who could argue with that as an offer?!

        The best thing about Frubes is that you can put them in the freezer so they are frozen when they go into the lunch box in the morning and by lunchtime they are nice and cold to eat, having kept everything in the box cold in the meantime.

        They are easy to eat too - my one year old can easily manage a Frube on her own whereas i would have to spoon feed her a yoghurt to save the mess!!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A great idea shame about the sugar

        Even though my daughter is 4 in a few weeks I still insist on feeding her yoghurts and custards as she simply makes so much mess so when I saw these on offer at Asda I decided that we would give them a try. The product usually costs £2.00 for 9 yoghurt drinks and each one hold 40g so personally compared to yoghurts I think the price is a little steep however I have noticed that Asda do their own version so I will be trying these.

        Frubes are made by Yogplait and now comes in pouches aswell as the tubes, they are also available in in well known character wrappings for example at the moment you can buy a box that has Cars on it for the release of Cars two. In each box you get 3 each of strawberry, cherry and peach and luckily my daughter likes all the flavours so none go to waste. The 9 yogurt tubes come packaged in a box, the box is purple in colour with Frubes written across in bright yellow and fancy writing, there is also a couple of characters on the front of the box with pictures of the fruit that provide the flavours for the yoghurts.

        On the side of the box there are pictures of more characters and a checklist which states, made with fruit puree from concentrate, no fruit bits, no colourings, a source of vitamin D and calcium and suitable for vegetarians. On the other side of the box there are two coloured strips with scissor marks around for cutting out and the suggestion that children could use them to make up their own characters which i though was a nice little extra and my daughter certainly enjoyed the idea.

        Looking at the nutritional information it is pretty similar to many childrens yoghurts in that they are high in sugar which is a shame as it means they have to be limited, the following information is for 100g but each sachet is 40g, calories 105, protein 5g, carbs 14.9g, of which sugar 14.6g, fat 2.8g, of which saturates 1.9g, fibre 0.1g and sodium 0.05g. The yoghurt I find tastes really creamy and has quite strong flavours especially the cherry one, to use there is a perforation across the top which when pulled only opens one corner meaning the child can squeeze the tube into their mouths without the yoghurt ending up all over. My daughter manages to open and eat these by herself and has worked out how to get the last dregs of the yoghurt out of it aswell so they are easy to use and the yoghurt is quite thick which helps it go where it is meant to.

        I would say that these are a great idea and nice for a treat, my daughter likes 2 or 3 yoghurts a day so there is no way with the sugar level she would be allowed these all the time but not too bad for a treat. Now to try to Asdas own ones and hope they're not so high in sugar.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A great idea

          These are such a good idea, fromage frais in a squeezy tube.

          You get 9 40g tubes of petits filous (made by Yoplait) fromage frais in a box, which are currently on offer in Asda for £1 a box, they are usually £2, or sometimes 2 boxes for £2:50.

          They come in boxes of all strawberry, or a mixed flavour box, my daugther will only eat the strawberry ones, but I think the mixed box includes strawberry, raspberry and peach/apricot.

          They are such a great idea, I gave them to my daugther when she was very little, they were so easy to carry around, then when she started to feed herself they didn't cause as much mess as a pot of fromage frais could, now she takes them in her lunch box to school and I don't have to worry about remembering to put in a spoon!!
          I'm going to have a go at keeping them in the freezer in hope that they will help to keep her lunch cool during the summer, lets hope they are defrosted by lunchtime !!

          I would say they are a healthy snack and due to them being in a convenient squeezy tubes means they can be eaten anywhere.

          Typical values per 100g are:
          Energy 451kj/107kcal
          Protein 6.4g
          Carbohydrate 13.8g
          of which sugar 13.5g
          Fat 2.8g
          of which saturates 1.9g
          Fibre 0.1g
          sodium 0.04g

          Give them a try, I don't know of many kids big or little who don't like them.

            A great idea

            Frubes.....


            For those who haven't heard of Frubes, they are literally a Fromage Frais type yoghurt in a squeezable tube shape. They are perfect for children as they are fun and mess free.


            They are on offer in my local store at the moment for £1 for a box of 9 tubes, each of which contain 40 grams. There are Frubes that have a Transformers design to the packaging at the moment which is what we have picked up.


            The Frubes come in a few different flavours which are Strawberry, Forest Fruits and Peach. They are suitable for vegetarians and contain not artificial colours or preservatives. The Fromage Frais is wonderfully creamy smooth and Jack really loves eating them.


            They are easy to eat as all you have to do is make a small tear in the top of the plastic tube and then the Fromage Frais can be squeezed up from the bottom to the top.


            They are tasty, affordable, easy to eat with little or no mess and take up less room in the rubbish bin than a yoghurt pot. They are also fun and something a bit different to give your child added calcium for stronger bones!


            All in all I can not rate these Frubes highly enough and can only give them a great score of 5 stars out of 5 stars and an exceptionally high recommendation.



            I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you.


            Many thanks for taking the time to read.

              Disadvantages

              What a great, simple idea!

              Personally, I think the idea for frubes is genius. They must have been invented by a parent with messy kids! You know what it is like. You give your kid a pot of yoghurt and they suddenly lose all sense of hand to mouth coordination, dribbling yoghurt down their chins and clothes and all over the table. I have always refused to send my kids to school with a tub of yogurt and a spoon for precisely the same reason. Who wants to scrub out a yoghurt encrusted lunch bag? And where do all those spoons dissappear to? Thank heavens for frubes, which solve all these problems!


              Frubes are currently on offer in Asda for £1 for a pack of 9x40g tubes. They are usually more expensive than this, so it is worth watching out for the offers. They are manufactured by trusted brand, Yoplait Petits Filous, who are well known for their lovely smooth creamy fromage frais.


              The frubes come in a purple card box, which you can find in the chiller section of the supermarket. The box contains 3 of each flavour, Strawberry, Forst Fruits and Peach. The tubes are made from thin plastic, which has a small nick in the end that you tear to create a small hole at the top of the tube to suck the yoghurt through. You simply squeeze the tube and suck the yoghurt out of the tube until it is empty. The tubes feature different cartoon characters to make them more colourful and appealing, such as a vampire, mermaid, firefighter, racing driver and a witch.


              The yoghurts themselves are made with fruit puree, and contain no artificial colours or sweetners. They are suitable for vegetarians. The yoghurts are really tasty, and ideal for kids as they contain no bits, and are smooth and creamy, with a mild flavour that is not overpowering.


              The fact that they are individually wrapped means they are perfect for lunchboxes or travelling, or on days out. You can get these as part of a kids meal at Debenhams restaurant, and this makes a really good alternative to a messy pot of yoghurt.


              On brilliant idea, mentioned on the box, is to freeze the tubes and eat them as lollies. we tried this and it worked brilliantly. They are perfect on a hot summer day, and are also good if your child is ill with a sore throat and you need something to cool them down. Freezing the yoghurt gives it a whole new texture and taste, and this is a really delicious way of eating them.


              The nutritional information is printed on each individual tube. It is as follows per 100g:


              Cal 109
              Protein 6.4
              Carb 14.3
              Fat 2.8


              I would have liked more nutritional information, such as values per tube, and also how much calcium is contained in each tube, but the manufacturers do not give this information.


              However, I will not let this detract from my 5 star Dooyoo rating, because I think this is a clever, innovative product that has lots of different uses, tastes yummy,and is good for you too.

                Disadvantages

                Really tasty snack for your kids.

                These really are a perfect packed lunch box snack for kids everywhere - and will make sure that your child doesn't head off to school with a yoghurt and spoon, and come back minus yet another one of your spoons!

                Found in the dairy aisle - they are basically little tubes of smooth
                yoghurt. About 2.5 - 3cm wide and about 15cm long, they have a tiny tear of section in the corner the easily rips so you can just squeeze the yoghurt out straight into your mouth with no spoons and no mess!

                The come in bright purple boxes and each box has 9 yoghurt tubes inside - 2 forest fruit flavour, 3 strawberry and 3 peach. Each box costs on average about £1.90, but occasionally you can find them on an offer - Tesco at the minute are selling them at £3.50 for 2.

                The great things about these is that they are suitable for freezing! Which
                means, you can freeze them, put a frozen one in your childs packed lunch
                box and by the time their lunch comes along the yoghurt has defrosted but is still cold and is perfect for the after lunch snack!

                Or if you eat them from frozen they make a nice summer treat or a perfect
                thing to give a teething child to suck.

                They are really healthy too - each 40g tube has 44 calories in! Which means not only are they suitable for kids - they great for me too!!!

                A great and fun way for kids to have a healthy snack

                I haven't had a Frube in years so when my nan gave us some the other day as a little treat I turned into a little kid and was quite excited to try one again!

                Frubes are fromage frais which are made with fruit puree so are very healthy for you. They're just a normal yoghurt but the difference with these is that they are so much more exciting to eat purely because they don't come in the standard yoghurt pot but in a flimsy tube instead. You tear along the line at one end of the tube and then you just squeeze the yoghurt out and into your mouth. They taste exactly the same as any other yoghurt but, for some reason, the packaging it comes in makes it so much more fun to eat. This is what makes them the perfect healthy snack or lunchbox item for children.

                They are bought in a big box which contains 9 Frubes with 3 different flavours - strawberry, forest fruits and peach. The strawberry and forest fruits ones are the nicest and they taste quite creamy. I normally prefer peach flavoured yoghurts to strawberry ones but I'm not too keen on the taste of these peach ones. They seemed to taste a little bit cheesy to me, a bit like feet! Maybe that's just me though!

                I wouldn't go out of my way to buy these again as they're fairly expensive costing almost £2 for just 9 Frubes. I don't have any children in my house and these are really better suited for kids - although my husband may come close to being in that category though as he did ask for some the last time I went shopping! I may buy them on occasion if I see them on offer but if we did have children these would definitely be one thing that I'd buy for them.

                Fromage frais in a tube, not a pot

                Frubes. If you've got children you may have come across these before and my two think they're a hit.

                Simply, Frubes are fromage frais not in pots but in little plastic tubes where you just tear off the top and suck out. Easy peasy. Made in France by Yoplait, this is the same stuff as Petit Filous, they are in fact Petit Filous Frubes!

                They come in a box of 9, each tube containing 40g of fromage frais and they is a mixture of 3 flavours: peach, strawberry and forest fruits.

                The box is predominantly purple, with the Frubes logo in yellow and a selection of fruit. Each Frube is a different character and they are all pictured on the back. Just looking on the back I can see a pirate, a chef, a mermaid and a cowboy amongst others and they all have names. I suppose the idea is that kids can collect all the characters. My son did this briefly but I wasn't happy with his bedroon floor being strewed all over by empty yogurt packets, some of which would have had yogurt still in them. I suppose I could wash them out and give them back to the kids but they have enough tat already thank you very much without more plastic rubbish.

                Anyway, these characters are fun and once they've seen who they've had and eaten, they're happy to throw them away.

                Ingredients wise, after the fromage frais the main ingredient is sugar. The nutrition label states in every 100g of fromage frais, there is 13.7 g of sugar. Mmm. Fat wise, it's 2.8g. It does state that the product is made with fruit puree from concentrate.

                I buy these fairly often as the children do like them, and Tescos often have them on offer. They are handy for lunchboxes as you don't need the spoon, and I sometimes pop one in Tom's schoolbag for snack time to keep him going til lunch.

                In the summer, I pop them in the freezer which turns them into an ice pop which they really get impressed by.

                All in all, for the convenience factor and because my two do like the taste I will keep buying them, they may be in the high side sugar wise but I'd still rather they had one of these than raid the biscuit tin quite so often.

                As for me, I had a taste once and it was disgusting!!!

                .

                Let's just put this out there: I'm 18 and yet I'm still a big fan of Frubes. They truly are loved by the young and the old, even though they are designed more for the young!!

                In one pack you get 9 tubes of yoghurt. There are three tubes of three flavours: peach, strawberry and fruits of the forest. Each flavour has a character. Peach is Pedro, Ferdi is forest fruits. These are great for the kids, I know I loved it when I was a bit younger!

                The taste of these yoghurts is very nice: they are creamy and the taste is not overpowering. There are no 'bits' in the yoghurt as well, which makes them great for fussy kids!

                The amount of yoghurt per tube is not good however, and they really aren't satisfying. To be honest, I have to eat a good few to feel satisfied and a whole box is an easy possibility. But at £2.20 a box, these aren't what I would call good value for money!

                  A Fantastic Yoghurt In A Tube That Will Appeal To All Ages.

                  I recently received a packet of these from my Mum who advised me that they were 'ideal as an ice pop' according to the packet anyway. These were promptly devided up between the freezer and the fridge as I was a little sceptical (and rightly so!) that this would work.

                  These are available from Tesco stores or www.tesco.co.uk for £2.10 although they are currently on 3 for 2 and were half price when I received them from my Mum. You will get 9 x 40g pouches of yoghurt for your money and these are a pretty nice snack after lunch or after dinner so 9 will go quite a long way.

                  You will receive 3 x Strawberry, 3 x Forest Fruit, 3 x Peach and this is fromage frais that is made with fruit puree from concentrate. They are suitable for vegetarians and contain nothing artificial, nor do they have any bits which is ideal for someone as fussy as me. Each of the yoghurts can be told apart by the colour of the packaging. Each of the yoghurt tubes is decorated with a small cartoon style character which would probably appeal to young children. Each of the yoghurts is easily opened with a half perforated edge about 1cm down the tube, simply rip it open and push the yoghurt out. Each of the flavours is deliciously smooth and thick, the yoghurt is quite creamy and has a slight kick to it. Each of the flavours does taste how it should (i.e peach tasting like peach yoghurt) and because these have no bits in them I find them utterly devine as a snack.

                  Each tube has around 42 calories & 1.3g of fat so these are ideal if you want something a little sweet yet want to watch the waistline.

                  I think that these are fairly good value for money but I would recommend buying them when they are on special offer.

                  Also, I tried one of the frozen ones (a peach one as it's my favourite flavour) and these were just disgusting. The yoghurt tasted nothing like it did when fresh from the fridge and I just did not enjoy the crunchy yoghurt style texture one bit. I would not do that again and I'm not sure if I can defrost them now and use them as a normal yoghurt (if anyone knows please let me know!).

                  I am going to rate Frubes 5/5 as the taste is great, the price is reasonable and they are the ideal filler for a healthy lunchbox. Kids like the packaging and seem to love anything that comes out of a tube! I would definitely recommend them just don't take their latest advice and have a 'dairy ice pop' bleurgh.
