My family loves snacking on fruit, especially fruit picked at it’s peak, which is hard in Ohio as we approach the cold months ahead. One incredibly tasty way to get the recommended fruits and vegetables in our diet is with freeze dried fruit and vegetables. Beware, not all dried fruit is the same. Some are loaded with sugar which makes a snack that should be healthy into junk. My family loves snacking on Crunchies dried fruit. It is premium dried fruit in every bite – no added sugar!

Crunchies offers 10 freeze dried fruits and vegetables to choose from. The freeze dried fruits are crunchy but not overly crunchy – another thing about other freeze dried fruits that I don’t typically like. I don’t want the person next to me to hear my crunching super hard on my fruit. Crunchies has the perfect amount of crunch. Once you taste it, you’ll look at the label to see if there is anything else in it. Certainly there should be sugar, artificial flavors, or something. Nope. Just fruit! You can tell that the fruit is picked and freeze dried at their peek because the flavor is that amazing.
I believe that the Freeze Dried Beets is the only actual vegetable they carry. My husband is a big beet fan and he ate the whole bag. I’m not a big fan but tasted it and yes, they sure do taste just like beets. 🙂
My kids’ favorites are blueberries, raspberries, strawberries and banana. My favorite is mango – Crunchies Freeze Dried Mango taste even better than fresh! The pineapple is amazing too – sweet and tart.
What I like most about Crunchies is that it is just fruit, without added sugar. I also like how easy Crunchies are to pack in my kids’ lunches and as snacks – they get the sweetness of a treat, the crunch of a chip, and the flavor of perfectly ripped fruit. I also like that they are a field to fork company which means they source their fruits directly from the farmers who grow it. It is a product that I’ll continue to keep stocked in my pantry.
I’m always looking for healthy, tasty, low carb snacks for my kids. As many of my followers know, my kids are both Type 1 Diabetics. That means they must count carbs and receive insulin for everything they eat. Their pancreas was attack by their immune system, so this is a life-long disease with no cure. Although it can’t be reversed like Type 2 Diabetes, we still watch the sugar they intake to keep their blood sugar levels steady and healthy.
I try to keep their snacks at 15 carbs per serving – this is very, very hard. Even an apple has 19 carbs and snacks like granola bars have 30+. I feel like a winner now that I found a snack my whole family can agree on that is healthy, tasty, and low carb! Seriously, it is like I found treasure! A full serving of Crunchies dried fruit is less than 10 carbs, making it a great snack any time of day and wonderful addition to packed lunches for school and after school snacks.
