Healthy Munchy Freeze-Dried Fruit Snacks

How many of you get the recommended daily allowance for fruit? How many of you snack on healthy options or grab a nasty bag of potato chips? A candy bar? Well...times are changing and these days you can find all kinds of healthy snack options that are just waiting for consumers to enjoy.

One such option are the Healthy Munchy freeze-dried fruit snacks that are made from nothing but freshly picked, in-season fresh fruits. Fuji apples, pineapples or bananas that are low calorie (up to 90 calories per serving) and contain no additives! If you are struggling to get the recommended daily allowance for fruit into your system...the Fuji Apple flavor contains the equivalent of 2.2 apples! Not only that...these fruits are a great source of dietary fiber.

My family recently received several packages of the Healthy Munchy fruit snacks to try out for all of you. We received two bags of each of the three flavors:

* Fuji Apple Crispies
* Pineapple Crispies
* Banana Crispies

Besides these flavors they also have Mango and Pear Crispies, All are gluten-free, wheat-free, dairy-free, peanut-free and no sugar has been added which means no fat! If your kids love Dora the Explorer and Sponge Bob...look for those specially designed packages.

One of the things I LOVED about the flavors that we got to review is that they are "true" flavors. The apple tastes like an apple...the pineapple, a pineapple and so forth. Second, they weren't all dried out and leathery. They had a really nice texture and flavor to them. Like crispy? Well, they are! They're crispy but soft enough that anyone can chew comfortably.

Another great thing about the Healthy Munchy dried fruit snacks is that they are affordable! Each pouch has a MSRP of $1.49 per pouch! They are a HEALTHY alternative compared to potato chips, candy bars, cheese curls and other garbage that you find on the store shelves and in vending machines. Plus...you are getting a serving of fruits which we all need to consume more of!

You can learn more about Healthy Munchy and their wonderful freeze-dried fruit snacks by visiting their site online and by connecting with the company on Facebook.

I've never tried freeze-dried fruit snacks before. I have dehydrated my own fruit and am really amazed how light it is when dried. I do like the taste too and not messy like juicy fruit so easy to eat on the go.

I would love to have more freeze dried fruit snacks as something I could easily carry with me to snack upon. They are healthful.
