I’ll be honest. I just pulled a banana out of my car that was starting to get old. I wanted a fruit snack on a trip and (shocker if you know me!) I left it in the car for about 2 days. Here’s a warning. Bananas ripen faster in the car even when it’s cold outside. I guess they are on auto-ripen.

Get it?

No. OK.

I’ll move on.

Take fruit with you the easy way by taking dried fruits. I was sent a variety of Crispy Green snacks to try. I love dried fruits as a snack – when I can find ones that keep their flavor. These are freeze dried to seal in the flavor. They almost dissolve in your mouth.

There is a difference in the process and outcome of freeze dried vs dehydrated fruits, and Crispy Green has a fancy video to help explain.

These are great travel snacks, work snacks, and if your kids will eat them, great kid snacks. The texture was a little too weird for Beck, but then that’s his 3 year old thing. It can taste like candy (which these do!) but the texture will drive him away. The way they dissolve reminds me of pop rocks without the sizzle and pop. So this just means more for me!

Cool flavors – the tangerine were my favorite.

Let me know if you try them and what you think!

Product provided for review. Thanks Crispy Green!
