Rated 4 out of 5 by BeeShops Delicious Fruit Bars
These fruit bars are delicious! I bought the combo order and I must say both flavors are great and the bars are a good size. I love that the jams are made with real, whole fruit. The Blueberries in the Blueberry jam were tasty and (more like small wild Blueberries in size and taste) plentiful and paired nicely with the slight Lemon flavor in the Shortbread. The Raspberry jam is full of real Raspberries and went well with the Almond Shortbread. I didn't find either flavor to be dry, crumbly or stale. I will say that the crumb topping on the Blueberry was much softer/mushier, than the Raspberry. However, I think that is due to the Blueberry being a slightly, looser jam in texture, than the Raspberry jam, so it seeped into the topping more, making the crumble taste a bit more flour like. The order does say, to pop the bars in the freezer or refrigerator for a bit though, to firm up the jam and I must say this was true. The blueberry firmed right up, i didn't need to do it for the raspberry though. I would buy this item again, although, I think the price is a bit too steep for the amount you are getting. Especially, compared to the pricing and amount you get with some of Jimmy's other items on QVC, but they are tasty enough to splurge on here and there. I see some reviews said the bars were harder or stale and' not moist', but I don't know if they are aware that the crust is a Shortbread crust. Shortbread is not 'moist', as in cake moist, it is closer to a crisper, biscuit/scone like cookie in texture, when fresh which these were. I think people think or hear moist and they think soft as in cake, (which is why some may have thought the bars were stale) which is totally different than Shortbread, just to put that out there.

Very disappointed with this bakery product.Blueberry is ok but the Raspberry was very stale and dry.

Was so excited to get these bars, but was very disappointed in the quality. The Raspberry bars were so hard and dry I just threw them in the trash. The Blueberry Lemon were softer, but just crumbled when you ate them, very dry crust, not buttery an moist. Maybe I got a bad batch, but I won't be purchasing these again.

I had been on the fence about ordering these so finally jumped and did. I will say the shipping was overnight from Jimmy the Baker warehouse, the cookies as they call them were huge and packaged very well. But then.........I bit into to 1 and oh my they were like saw dust. I think they need to be classified as the cookie part is more like a scone, bitter and very dry. Thank goodness QVC has a great C/S team they fixed my problem easy and fast. I will stick with the Racine Krinkles. and if I want this type of food I will switch channels to HSN and get David's Cookies.....the price was great on this item for the quantity and size if you could eat it. Maybe mine was just bad,

They were very dry. The blueberry was the better one.
Rated 5 out of 5 by CocoPa These bars are wonderful!
I have ordered these bars more than once, and they are always great! Individually wrapped makes them great for storing. I usually refrigerate right away upon arrival, and they remain fresh for weeks. Jimmy the Baker makes the "best" products, I have yet to buy anything I did not like!

I am a huge fan of all of Jimmy's goodies. These are fantastic! The shortbread crust is perfect, then the taste of the filling,bought both fillings raspberry and blueberry, then covered with wonderful crumbs. Can't ask for anything better. Large size, individually wrapped, which makes it perfect to take with you, and freeze. All of Jimmy's products freeze well. I leave a few out and always put the rest in the freezer. Don't hesitate these are a must. Enjoy!!!
