Outshine Fruit Bars

General Product Questions

Q:

Why doesn’t the package say Dreyer’s/Edy’s® anymore?

A:

We’re still the same company, we just decided to let the Outshine® brand live on its own. By choosing Outshine® as our name, we honor people like you who love our products and strive to ‘shine brighter’ in every aspect of their lives.

Q:

Why doesn’t the package say “all–natural” anymore?

A:

There is no legal definition of “natural” for Fruit Bars. The Outshine® brand has based its use of the term “all–natural” on guidelines issued by the FDA, which reflect how reasonable consumers would understand that term. We have always labeled our products truthfully and transparently, working within the FDA’s guidelines. We don’t want there to be any questions about our “all–natural” claims and we don’t think the “all–natural” claim is the best way to convey our current core values. So whether or not we use an “all–natural” claim on the package, we’ll continue to use the best ingredients we can find.

Q:

Any difference in the allergen labeling on the package?

A:

Yes, the Outshine® bars that contain some of the big eight allergens now have a “contains” statement after the ingredient statements.

Q:

What Outshine® Bar do you recommend for those looking for a smaller option?

A:

If you want a smaller portion, try a 1.5 oz. Outshine® Bar instead of a 2.5 oz. bar. For more information on Nestle portion control guidance, check out: http://www.nestleusa.com/nutrition/sweettreats

Q:

Why are some of your Outshine® Fruit Bars seasonal?

A:

Taking a cue from nature, we wanted to introduce a line of limited edition flavors inspired by farmers’ markets with season-exclusive fruit — Outshine® Seasonal Picks. The flavors we chose to offer this year are those at the peak of freshness in their particular seasons.

Available for a limited time, the Outshine® flavor for spring and summer pick – Black Cherry– is available in the warmer months, and our fall and winter pick – Blood Orange – is available in the cooler months.

Q:

Will there be more Seasonal Picks launched in other seasons?
