Fruit cups are a single serving of fruit contained in a fruit juice. They are a tasty way to get a serving of fruit and are actually pretty healthy to consume. Fruit cups contain fruit that has been processed and packaged in fruit juice. They are 60 to 70 calories per cup and are much healthier and have much less sugar in them than something like a can of fruit cocktail. Fruit cups also feel and taste fresher and crisper than canned fruits do. Canned fruits have too many sugars and preservatives in them.
Fruit cups prove to be a refreshing alternative to canned fruit and they are quite tasty. However, it is important to remember that they do not really compare to a piece of real fresh fruit if you are able to choose that option instead.
