Who could resist a product with a perky jingle and cute, clever tag line, "Real fruit and fun rolled up in one! Fruit Corners Fruit Roll-ups!" Not me!
As a child in the 1980s, lunch was simply incomplete without my Fruit Corners Fruit Roll-ups by General Mills Betty Crocker (that's a mouthful).
Each roll-up has approximately 50 calories, 1 gram of fat and 12 grams of carbohydrates--not too bad for a sweet treat.
