Sunkist Fruit Snacks... Allergy~friendly fruit snacks that even taste good!

We have tried many different kinds of fruit snacks.  Some have NO flavor, some are TOO gummy and some just flat out taste strange.  Some my son likes yet my daughter avoids.

I think we've found one option they both appear to like and maybe you will too.  These are free of the top 8 allergens and that includes being milk-free, egg-free, soy-free, gluten-free and nut-free.  The biggies in many allergy homes.
