Edy's . . . . Where have you been all my life???

Ever since I got into couponing I have opted to stray from my usual preferred-brand grocery purchases and try out some other brands all in the name of saving money. So far I've never been disappointed and yesterday was no different. Our Publix put the Edy's All-Natural Fruit Bars on sale Buy On Get On Free for $3.99. Why had I never tried these before??? Well, I'm not going to pay $4 for a box of 6 fruit bars. Too expensive. Anyway, Walgreens had a $1 off coupon for these. Being the true couponer that I am, I bought 8 boxes of these fruit bars, used 8 Walgreens coupons and a $3 off a $15 purchase Rite Aid coupon and only paid $5.01 for all 8 boxes!!!! After I got them home I thought that I probably should have only bought a box or two to make sure I liked them before stocking up. :0) Too late!
That afternoon Easton and a friend were outside playing and asked for a popsicle. So as I got into the freezer to get them a popsicle I thought that it would be an opportune time to try an Edy's fruit bar. Naturally, I was drawn to the coconut flavor. I LOVE coconut!!!! If everything tasted like coconut I would consider myself in heaven. So, I opened it up and tried one. HOLY COW!!!! This was SO GOOD words cannot even describe. The whole time I ate it I couldn't help but wonder where these little treasures have been all my life? Now that we've met, we're best friends forever. If you like coconut, do yourself a favor and rush to the store and buy some of these babies. Plus, they only have 3 grams of fat and 120 calories, a much better alternative to ice cream. :0)

Edy's have been in the East all of your life. Here they are known as Dreyers. Though I've never seen these before. I will have to keep my eye out for them. I love coconut!

You're so funny! I thought the EXACT same thing. I saw them on sale with the walgreens coupon and thought what the heck, i'll try them out BUT I thought I'd get only 2 to see if I like them or not...Well I do...Of course...and sadly I was not able to get back to get more!!! I really wanted to get the coconut ones too but Curtis HATES coconut so I thought I'd get something he would like too - regreting that decision - should have gotten us each our own box! hah!
