We eat a lot of fruit in our house, it is after all God’s gift of desert to us. Since most fruit is easily perishable it doesn’t always work to have it with us on the go. So I like to have the option to have dried fruit on hand to throw in our bags and have on the go. My hands down favorite is from Peeled Snacks. I found them last year and placed an order with a voucher I had purchased. We were hooked then!
I loved that Peeled Snacks were 100% organic dried fruit, nothing else just organic fruit! They are produced free of sulfites. They are also naturally gluten-free. The apricots and cherries are sun-dried so they are considered raw. The other varieties are dried with a heating process higher than 125 degrees.
Peeled Snacks are available at locations nationwide including Starbucks, TJ Maxx, Marshalls, HomeGoods, BJ’s Wholesale Club and Whole Foods. Click here for a complete list of locations. Peeled Snacks are also available in their online store.
I was very excited to receive an Organic Fruit Picks Variety Pack.
- It includes 5 varieties of single serving organic fruit Picks
- Natural source of vitamins, minerals, iron & fiber
- Contains 12 single serving snacks: 2 each of pine-4-Pineapple, Banan-a-peel & Apricot-a-lot, and 3 each of much-ado-about-Mango & Apple-2-the-core
To be honest, the first time we tried the banana I wasn’t sure if I liked the texture since it isn’t hard and crisp like the banana chips we purchase in bulk from Whole Foods. But after trying again, we really enjoyed that they were chewy and still tasted like an actual banana. I would purchase the banana again, Austin preferred them over Addie but overall we loved them.
The pineapple was Addie’s favorite. She loves pineapple and ate an entire bag herself. I thoroughly enjoyed the Apricot and Mango as did my sister and two friends that were with us the day we sampled some of the fruits. The apple seemed a little on the chewy side for the kids but very flavorful. I love that even though it isn’t fresh fruit, I can feel great about providing my children a healthy serving of just fruit that is easy to grab for any on the go occasion, especially great for our long drives on the road. We were Peeled Snack fans before and will continue to purchase their products to have on hand.
