The company sent me their flavors to try, which come in Sweet Corn, Cherry Berry, Tropical Blend, Orchard Blend, Apple Harvest, and Dried Roasted Soy Nuts. I was excited to try these- I love crunchy, dried fruit! Not as caloric as traditional dried fruit (the chewy type) and much more fun to play around with (In recipes, of course!)
I decided to munch on Orchard Blend, Sweet Corn, and Cherry Berry.
Orchard Blend- this one is a blend of freeze-dried peach, apple and apricot. It was certainy unique, and very tasty! The peaches were my favorite part of the combination- they melted in your mouth and actually had pretty big chunks. They also tasted very fresh, which was nice. The apple pieces were small and crispy, and the apricot added a nice tangy touch.
Cherry Berry- this one is strawberries, blueberries, apples and cherries of course! There were huge cherry chunks, thet awere sweet & crispy. The blueberries were good as well, and it was different for me, I never had a freeze-fried blueberry before! My favorite part was the strawberries! Normally, freeze dried strawberries are tart and bitter to me, but these were sweet! I was just upset because there were only a few pieces of these There was actually a lot of apple pieces in this blend, which was surprising since it’s called Cherry Berry. Oh well.
Sweet Corn- this one is sooo good! It actually tastes like eating popcorn, but it’s the freeze dried “kernels”! It even had a buttery taste to it (but rest assured-no butter added!) and had just the right amount of salt on it. Forget popcorn- I’m eating THESE while watching my next movie
Overall, I give these 4 1/2 stars. They are tasty, give a good portion, are all natural and are unique! I would like if they had more individual bags too (like the Apple has a bag with JUST apples), and would love it if they had JUST banana! I love banana! (ooh- imagine chocolate covered banana? Ok,,, I’m getting ahead of myself!) Definietely give these a shot if your in the mood for something crunchy, sweet (with no added sugar!!), yet healthy! These will hit the spot.
