Move over dried apples, and make room for super-crunchy Bare Fruit Apple Chips. Crispy apples may not sound like the peak of snacking excitement, but what if I were to mention dairy-free flavors like Caramel Sea Salt and Chile Lime?
Available in several all-natural varieties and even a few organic ones, Bare Fruit Apple Chips are made with 3 Washington apples in every 1.5 to 2 serving bag. And there isn’t really that much more to say. They are baked up with the skins on, have an audible crunch, and possess a surprisingly fresh taste.
Of course, the flavors do vary just a touch. The Fuji Red (a little sweeter) and Granny Smith (on the tangier side) are made with nothing more than apples, while the Cinnamon are Fuji’s with a nice spice dusting (who doesn’t love cinnamon?). The Sea Salt Caramel is lightly sweetened with rich caramel undertones and a natural candied apple flavor. They use a very light hand with the sea salt, just a touch more would be ideal in my opinion. The Chile Lime is definitely for heat lovers with a synergistic blend of zesty lime, lightly sweetened apple chips, salt and and potent chile spice.
To note, the Organic Bare Fruit Apple Chips come in Fuji Red, Granny Smith and Cinnamon. I didn’t get the chance to sample these, but would definitely shoot for the organic since apples tend to be a high pesticide fruit.
