MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 27, 2011

These are great! They are easy to make and I have found they are an easy, quick breakfast. (You can thaw them by microwaving them.) I loved the chunks of fruit- I also added a 10 oz. or 2 oz. (I forget which one it was) package of frozen blueberries to the mix. You might need a couple extra cups for this addition. I might add less blueberries next time- it turned the mixture a funny color of purple. Also, be sure to halve; or better yet; quarter your strawberries, they can remain frozen when the rest of your fruit cup is not. So yummy- a quick snack. Will make again!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 5, 2010

The ease of prep was key...very easy assembly. I suggest taking out of freezer alot sooner. Mine were still pretty frozen even after the 40-50 minutes. Next time I would cut the strawberries in half because by the time the fruit cups were of a slushy consistency, the whole strawberries were still frozen. People were spiting out the strawberries because they were so cold. I put a dolop of whip cream on top to finish and a cherry. Looked very pretty and colorful on the Easter Brunch table.
