I’ve long been a fan of dried fruit, and am quickly taking to the freeze-dried fruit craze, but never expected a snack like this. Peeled Snacks has bundled freeze-dried organic apple bits with organic apple juice and cornstarch to create little spheres of super-crunchy goodness.
Peeled Snacks Apple Clusters come in three uber-crunchy, organic flavors:
Apple Crunch – Kylie said these were “too apple-y” and I had to agree. Tony concurred, good, but just a touch too sweet and in-your-face apple for this snack crew.
Cinnamon Crunch – The cinnamon mellowed and enhanced the apple flavor and was exactly what we thought the apple crunch needed. Delicious.
Berry Crunch – Though we all liked the Cinnamon Crunch, this was our hands down winner. Delightfully sweet, yet the berry flavor perfectly complimented and tamed the apple infusion.
This quick and light snack can easily be addictive out of hand (and are quite portable for a summer or back-to-school snack), but I liked them even better in gluten- and dairy-free cereal. Those cereals with sugary freeze-dried fruit bits have got nothing on Peeled Snacks Apple Clusters.
No sogginess – they stay somewhat crunchy but become tender dried fruit when doused with milk alternative, and are so delicious. And as a final note, I have to give these apple clusters two thumbs up for the organic factor since apples are a notoriously high pesticide food!
