We can all find it a little taxing to make sure we are getting our five-a-day, especially during the winter months when our favourite fruits are out of season.
Thankfully, the clever folks at The Snack Organisation have created a series of delicious freeze-dried fruit snacks that count as a serving of fruit!
We were lucky enough to try their flagship flavours – sweet strawberry, tart apricot, exotic pineapple and fresh apple. With a degree of trepidation we opened the first pack, unsure of what to expect. We were certainly pleasantly surprised – all of the fruit looked like slightly shrunken versions of their former selves and there wasn’t any artificial colouring to be found. We popped a piece of pineapple in our mouths first and waited as the light aerated texture melted on the tongue.
Each flavour was really delicious – we particularly liked the apple pieces eaten alongside a handful of almonds and the strawberry flavour sprinkled over yoghurt and granola. At only 50 – 70 calories per bag, it felt like an easy, delicious and low calorie way to snack more healthily.
We are all converted – it’s time for you to find your favourite flavour!
