Satisfying with a soft crunch.
December 9, 2015 – These freeze dried snacks are satisfying, have a soft crunch and nothing is added. Just naturally occurring sugars from the fruit. There is a light pear flavor, not as much as I’d like. One bag is forty satisfying calories with 7 grams of naturally occurring sugars. Gluten Free, of course. Imported from China.

The 2015 Power Your Lunchbox Pledge by Produce for Kids
This year, our team at Crispy Green became a proud sponsor of the annual Power Your Lunchbox program by Produce for Kids. The campaign ran right in the heart of the back to school season – from August 3rd to September 18th of this year – and promoted the importance of packing healthy, balanced school lunches. Over 10,000 parents, families and classrooms took the pledge to pack a healthier lunch over the course of the campaign at poweryourlunchbox.com.
Lunch is important to power kids through their school day, explains Dr. Kurt Hong of the Center for Human Nutrition and director of Huntington Medical Foundation.
He recommends combining complex carbohydrates with lean protein — nonfat yogurt and granola, a lean turkey sandwich on whole grain bread, low-fat cottage cheese with fruits and vegetables — for a concentrated, long-lasting source of energy (consider Crispy Fruit from Crispy Green when fresh fruit is not available or a convenient option).
Just in time for the back-to-school season, Matt Rogers of Home & Family on the Hallmark Channel gave Crispy Fruit the thumbs up as a great snack that the whole family can enjoy. Check out the clip below and see why he deemed our snacks “Daddy Approved!”
