Little Hug Fruit Barrels have been a family favorite since 1974. The single serving fruit barrels were the first of their kind for kids and have been a staple in lunchboxes ever since. A commitment to innovation has led to enhanced flavors, less sugar, vitamin fortification and the addition of straws to help keep kids clean and dry while they're on the go.
What Is The Sugar Content?
While some may remember the sugar high associated with Little Hug fruit barrels from the '80s and '90s, these have had a bit of a makeover when it comes to nutrition. Little Hug Assorted Drinks now contain 75% less sugar per serving than the former recipe, rounding out to only two grams of sugar per Little Hug fruit barrel, so you can hand them out to the kids without the fear of abandoning their nap time later.

Additional Facts About Little Hug Fruit Barrels
Little Hugs barrel bottles are 100% recyclable; however, the Little Hug Fruit Slushee pouches are not. In addition, Little Hug participates in the Sustainable Forestry Initiative and their shipping cases are both made from recycled materials and recyclable. Fruit barrel bottles are also completely free of bisphenol A, also known as BPA, which is often used in water and juice bottles but has been identified as an endocrine disruptor in the body. This means that it may mimic or block the action of the body's own natural hormones like estrogen. It may also alter brain development and cause reproductive abnormalities, which is why it is not used in the fruit barrels that your kids enjoy.
