I first tried these a few years ago, although have only recently got into the habit of buying them regularly. Now I have started though, I just can't stop. I paid £2 for 5 bags - they are available individually or in a multi-packs. I do think that they are quite expensive, although so worth it!
They look like little white blobs; each one is a different size. Some are small and then you'll come across a big one. They are really sweet, but not so sweet that they become sickly sweet. The yogurt coating, which completely covers the whole raisins is a bit like white chocolate. The raisins themselves are plump and juicy. I think that the raisins and the yogurt compliment each other really well.
I think that these are great for children, especially ones who do not like fruit as the yogurt coating makes them look at bit like sweets. They are great for lunch boxes too - for both children and adults. They are one of your five a day too!
They are a great snack and great for anytime of the day. I find them to be more-ish and whilst I think that the bags are quite small, I do find one bag (30g) to be quite filling!
One 30g serving (one bag) will provide you with 133 calories and 0.9g or protein. There is 20.0g of carbohydrate (it doesn't say how much of it is sugar) and 5.5g of fat (it doesn't say how much is saturated) per 30g bag.
Whilst I am only reviewing the raisin ones today, there are other flavours available in the range: black currants, Raspberry, Strawberries and Cranberries (all yogurt coated). I have tried the blackcurrant ones and they weren't half as nice as these raisin ones.
I recommend these!
Thanks for reading!

I had never heard nor seen of Fruit Flakes until 3 weeks ago when my friend introduced me to them. See bought a multi pack beacuse I was not convinced I would like them so I told her I would just try some of hers to make sure I before I got some myself. Reason I would not purchase my own being the thought of dried fruit reminds me of dried apricots and raisons which I am not to keen on and so this would not be a product I would ever have purchased for myself. However I am glad to say I am pleasantly surprised by just how delicious they are.
Fruit flakes are made by a company called fruit bowl and this particular typ of fruit flakes have a yoghurt coating. In Tesco you can by big bags containing 8 packets for £3.00 or you can buy the packets individually for 39p which works out as £3.12 for 8 packets however doing it this way you can mix and match on the flavours which I like to do. There is a choice between Strawberry, Raspberry and apple, Blackcurrant or raisins. Each packet contains 25g of fruit flakes which contain 112 calories per packet for the fruit variety and a 133 calories for the raisin variety though you do get 5g more in the raisin bag for some reason. Not being a fan of raisins on their own so I opt for the fruit variety every time.
The fruit flakes are made from real fruit which has been concentrated and sweetened and made into pieces which have then been dipped in yoghurt. To me the th result is similar to eating jelly if it was slightly harder when set. You can taste the difference between the flavours and raspberry is my favourite the yoghurt adds to the sweet taste and gives a nice texture to the flakes as you eat them you can feel the yoghurt which goes creamy in your mouth almost like white chocolate. These fruit flakes won't equal one of our 5 fruit and veg a day but they are a healthier alternative to eating chocolate or sweets for those of you with a sweet tooth. I have also got my work colleagues raiding their kids supply to bring to work themselves so it's not just me who find's them addictive lol.
5 stars from me.
Fruit bowl is the compnay behind this brillaint idea, they use the fruit flakes but coat them in a delicou yoghurt coating.
We have real fruit pieces with a lovely white yoghurt coating packed into small sized packs.
Each bag is white in colour. On the front in large letters is Fruit flakes. Behind this are images of the fruit inside. The colourful packaging realy gets your attention. Especially the version being white with red for rasberry.
On the bck of the packet you ill find the usual dietry info, and a little bit of info about the product too.
Fruit flakes in yoghurt come in a number of flavours which are:
Blackcurrant - This is the one for ribena lovers, lovely tasting witha great yogurt addition.
Strawberry - Strawberries, well its a lovely summer fruit combined with yoghurt, is a sure fire winner
Cranberry - I have found these to be really large, but unfortunaely they seemed quite dry. So i wont buy these ones again.
The flakes themselves are quite large in size in comparison to the normal fruit flakes. They are not really very filling, so you could go through a few packs .
Overall i can say that these fruity, yoghurty snacks are brilliant.
But if your looking to get some fruit without it being fresh then these are perfect. You can also get multipacks too.
These have 112 calories per 25g serving with 5.2g fat. It doesnt state how much of the fat content is saturated. This also doesnt give the amount of sugar per pack.
These are little balls of dried strawberry with a hard yoghurt coating. The strawberry inside is pretty chewy, but very flavourful.
My daughter loves these, and so do I. I was quite concerned that the packet doesnt state how much sugar is contained per bag, as sugar content is pretty important to me. In spite of this, these do taste good, and are a great snack.
I would buy these again because they taste so good! These were £1.50 for a pack of 5 bags from Tesco.
