This month we are featuring one of our favorite snacks in our March Tasterie Boxes, Crispy Green fruit!
These 100% freeze-dried fruits have no additives or preservatives, fat, or cholesterol, only natural fruit fiber and nutrients, and are only about 40 calories a pack! That combined with the sweet flavors and distinct tartness of real fruit makes it our favorite!
These snacks are made though a very technical freeze dry process. Fresh fruit is frozen and then placed in a drying chamber under vacuum. Heat is then applied to the shelves inside the chamber on which the fruit is sitting; water is evaporated from the fruit while it remains frozen. The freeze drying process is completed when the water has been removed. This amazing process takes shrinks 10 pounds of fruit into a mere 1 pound of fruit and makes it shelf stable for years! WOW!
These snacks are Top 8 allergen free and made in a completely dairy, gluten, and nut free facility. They are also vegan because the only ingredients are real fruit. Their available flavors are Crispy Apples, Bananas, Mangoes, Asian Pears, Cantaloupes, Pineapples and Fruit Tangerine. They come in resealable pouches making them the perfect snack to go. They can be enjoyed on their own, or they make a great addition to a homemade trail mix! You can purchase Crispy Green at many specialty grocery stores including Roach Brothers,Whole Foods, TJMaxx, or you can purchase them online at www.crispygreen.com .
