Customizable My Fruit Roll-Ups Review and Giveaway

Roses are Red,
Violets are Blue,
Fruit Roll-Ups are Sweet,
And Customizable, Too!

Sometimes certain items or images trigger memory flashes. My latest encounter with Fruit Roll-Ups triggered one for me. In middle school it wasn’t "cool" to eat the hot lunch so I brought my lunch in a brown paper sack (lunch boxes were not cool either). My lunch usually consisted of some type of sandwich, a bag of chips, fruit and/or veggie and then something sweet. The something sweet more often than not was a strawberry Fruit Roll-Up. I loved to slowly unwrap, unroll, unpeel and eat the paper-thin treat. Haven’t had one for years, but I’m so glad for the recent reminder. Surely they’ll become a standby in our pantry now that we’ve had a sample.

So you can understand why this review is special for me. Yes, thanks to MyBlogSpark I had the chance to try out the customizable My Fruit Roll-Ups.

At you can design and order your My Fruit Roll-Ups using their design center. The steps are simple:

1. Choose a Canvas (They have awesome Valentine’s Day designs as well as birthday, graduation, pirates, princesses and even snowflakes!)
2. Add Images and Messages to personalize your design. I added a photo of my kids. See the picture to the left. Click to make larger.
3. Add to cart and name your design.
4. Preview your design.
5. Buy Now (30 rolls cost $29.99, plus shipping and tax).

It’s super easy the result is really unique and really fun for all! The shipping is pretty fast. We received our order in a little over a week. Our personalized Fruit Roll-Ups will go to our friends and family for Valentine’s Day, as long as I can keep all the little and big mongers away from the box! The ink used for printing the design does rub off a bit on the hands but it washes away just fine. It’s really a special treat and great for those special moments!

For a limited time at you can save money by entering the code “freeshipping” to get your custom rolls sent to you for free!

I'm giving away one (1) complimentary order of My Fruit Roll-Ups to a Brimful Curiosities reader. The winner will receive an online code to use for their free order (even includes the shipping)!

Thanks for the opportunity to win.

I like the design your own that allows you to edit 3 areas. I'd choose a photo, cake graphic and the words, "happy birthday". They would make great favors for my son's birthday party

Allison said...

Really cute! I like the Valentine's Day ones...percent to give away to that special someone!

Team Chilton said...

This is so fun. My mom never bought fruit roll ups for us when we were little, but I'd somehow get lucky and have a friend trade with me for something else. I like the "happy birthday" and think it would be funny to give these out for my husband's birthday. I also like "I love you." I'd probably design something of my own though. Thanks for the chance!

cdziuba said...

I'm a class mom, we have my son's Valentines Party coming up, so one of the Valentine themes would work. My son's asleep or I'd have him choose! Thanks for this cool giveaway, I;d love to win, the class would really enjoy these treats.

Whenever we have fruit roll ups in the house, I always tell hubby not to eat them, they're for the kids' lunches. So, I would LOVE to make the Valentine's Day heart design, with a picture of my 3 boys, and let the boys give Daddy fruit roll ups for Valentine's Day!!
