Fruitfull Introduces Country’s 1st Frozen Fruit Bar Featuring Superfruit Lucuma And Mamey Sapote
Lucuma and Mamey Sapote, two of the most popular flavors in Central and South America, have been combined into one new tasty flavor by Fruitfull Frozen Fruit Bars. The flavor is described as a range from butterscotch to maple to dulce de leche.

Aimed at providing the millions of health conscious consumers – young and old – with an all-natural, refreshing snack, the Fruitfull® Mamey-Sapote-
Produced from a puree – not a dehydrated powder – of the two fruits to maximize taste quality and freshness, the flavor has been described as a range from butterscotch to maple to dulce de leche. Consumers are invited to "like" the new flavor at http://www.facebook.com/
Beyond the great new taste, the frozen fruit bar offers a high nutritional value. Often called the new Superfruit, Lucuma has been scientifically proven to offer numerous health benefits due to its high levels of beta-carotene, niacin (B3), and other B vitamins. Also called "lucmo," the fruit has numerous other benefits which include:
• low acid levels
• low sugar content
• excellent fiber supply
• excellent source of Calcium
“When we researched new fruits to add to our Fruitfull line,” states Linda Kamm, president of Happy & Healthy Products, “we received a recommendation from Juan Núñez, president of Whole Foods Markets, Florida Division, to use the Lucuma from his native Chile. We discovered that it is the most popular flavor of ice cream in Chile, Argentina and Peru and that there is a ‘cult following’ seeking it out in the United States from people familiar with the fruit.
“When we coupled it with Mamey Sapote, another favorite flavor in Hispanic markets recommended, we knew we had something special that fit our mission of offering the best natural fruit frozen bar that tasted great, was healthy for you and that no one else offered.”
Kamm notes that both the American Diabetes Association, Inc. and the American Dietetic Association offer meal planning exchanges for the Fruitfull product. Additionally, the bars are Orthodox Kosher approved, Halal Certified and acceptable for the Feingold® Program for Children as defined by the prestigious Feingold Association.
Currently, the product is available at select locations of Publix and Whole Foods Markets and around the country in ethic markets, hospitals, colleges, health clubs, military bases, corporate cafeterias, convenience stores and gas stations.
