I have a weakness for snacks of any sort. I love crunchy, salty, sweet, savory – you name it, I love it. The problem is finding something that is healthy, but also satisfies that need to snack. I found a new snack-love at one of my favorite grocery stores recently and it meets all the needs of the perfect snack: it is crunchy, sweet, and you can reach in the bag almost as many times as you want!
FruitziO is a line of freeze-dried fruits that are incredibly healthy but also delicious! They carry strawberry, kiwi, peach, apricot and an apple/strawberry combo. So far I have had the kiwi, which is delightfully tangy, with a hint of sweetness. Each bag contains only the fruit and a small amount of cane sugar, (no scary preservatives or fat) because these are freeze dried, not fried.
These are my new favorite movie and road trip snacks – you can eat the ENTIRE bag (2.5 servings) for only 100 calories! In Cincinnati all the products are available at Fresh Market (there is one on Madison Road and one near Kenwood Town Centre) and at Shell Gas Stations.
The company that makes FruitziO is called Crispy Green and they also carry a line of freeze-dried fruits (cantaloupe, mango, pineapple, banana) that do not contain any sugar (or anything else for that matter!) but I have not yet been able to try these.
An awesome tid-bit for anyone that cares: these products are gluten free, dairy free, nut free, and vegan! Yum!
