Hannah Kaminsky of BitterSweet Blog gave Crispy Green Fruit Snacks a try and shared her review with us…
It’s increasingly rare to find a company that is willing to attempt to use advanced technologies for the greater good of a nation hungry for real food. What’s truly impressive are the ideas being executed by Crispy Green, especially considering the end results.
Dried fruit is nothing new. Recently though, a new interpretation of the word “dried” has been taking off: Freeze-dried. Employing special drying chambers and a good amount of labor, freeze-drying fruit isn’t the sort of thing you’d be able to do in your own home, which is a large selling point for this product in my eyes. Although crispy fruit sounds standard, boring, and simple, it’s amazing what a little dose of science will do.
The apple and pineapple varieties met my fancy. Let me tell you, the believable flavor packed into each tiny piece more than makes up for their unassuming appearance. I’m not kidding when I say the flavors are intense. Each new bite produced a jolt of bright, concentrated sweetness. So pure and unadulterated that it made me wonder how it could all fit into such a small package. Excellent for health nuts and those striving towards a healthier lifestyle alike! Great for a quick snack on the go or a re-energizer before a workout. These crunchy fruit slices provide a wonderful burst of energy as well as flavor.
If you’re still confused about how each of these may taste, just go to your local grocery or farmer’s marker and take a bite of an apple, apricot, pineapple, or peach. Now, just imagine that taste being 100x times more powerful. There’s no other way to describe these than to compare them to the actual fruits they came from, and I am personally overjoyed by that. With all of the things that can go wrong through processing, these delicious gems have come out completely unscathed, and perhaps all the better for it.
