Crispy Green

in Essential Ramblings

I was asked to review a product recently — Crispy Green and Fruitzio snacks — and I’ll admit that I almost said, no thanks, because I don’t usually like dried fruit snacks — but I was pleasantly surprised when I got these and popped them in my mouth (while dreading a lack of flavor and that styrofoam feeling).  These snacks were the exact opposite — they had a GREAT taste, a good crunch, and tons of flavor.  They are also nut free, Kosher, dairy free, gluten free, preservative free, and have no added sugar, sweeteners or additives!  100% freeze-dried fruit slices that are made of real fruit and nothing else.  Shocking right?  You can actually feed them to any kid that comes over, throw them in your purse for emergency snacking and be good to go.  Kind of gross to think of it in these terms, but the bags are small, super light, and reseal — so even less mess than a box of crackers and oh, so much better for you.  And when you steal them from your kids for your own snacking emergency — they come in bags of 100 calories and they’re the good calories, not the ones that sit on your thighs — the kind that have actual vitamins and healthy bits!  Check it out, www.crispygreen.com, definitely worth an order.
