All Natural Freeze-Dried Cantaloupe Makes the Sweet Taste of Ripe Cantaloupe Available Anywhere, Anytime –
Fairfield, N.J. – August 1, 2011 – Crispy Green Inc., the maker of Crispy Green® premium Crispy Fruit and FruitziO® freeze-dried fruit snacks, today announced the addition of Crispy Cantaloupe to its growing line of all natural and wholesome Crispy Fruit snacks.
Crispy Cantaloupe keeps America’s most popular melon in season all year long while delivering a burst of cantaloupe right at your fingertips. The healthy freeze-dried Crispy Cantaloupe delights the taste buds of children and adults alike with its sweet taste and light, crispy crunch.
Crispy Cantaloupe is made of 100-percent high-quality cantaloupe slices and nothing else – no added sugar, preservatives (including sulfides), colors, fat, cholesterol or sodium. Crispy Cantaloupe is also vegan-friendly, peanut/tree nut-free, dairy-free and gluten-free, and it is kosher-certified.
Crispy Cantaloupe contains approximately one serving of fresh cantaloupe in a single-serving bag that totals only 40 calories. Crispy Cantaloupe provides the same all natural fruit fiber and nutrients as fresh cantaloupe – without the messiness – and has a much longer shelf life (36 months)!
Available in convenient, moisture-free,.36-ounce single-serving-size bags (MSRP: $1.49) or the handy ‘Grab & Go’ 6-PACKS – six single-serving bags in one large, easy-to-carry bag (MSRP: $7.99). Crispy Cantaloupe is a perfect fit for today’s active lifestyle because it is tasty, portable and ready-to-eat anytime anywhere, from kid’s lunch boxes, to work break snacks, a ”no-guilt” after dinner treat, or an outdoor activity “take-along”.
“With the new USDA Dietary Guidelines – MyPlate, more and more people are looking for easy and convenient ways to increase their consumption of fruits and vegetables,” says Angela Liu, President and Founder of Crispy Green. “Cantaloupe is the most consumed melon in America, Crispy Cantaloupe is our latest exciting addition to our growing assortment of freeze-dried fruit snacks. Crispy Green is very proud to be a Community Partner of the USDA and in helping promote quick and simple ways to make healthy dietary changes based on the Dietary Guidelines.”
Crispy Fruit is also available in five other delicious flavors: Crispy Apples, Crispy Asian Pears, Crispy Bananas, Crispy Pineapples and Crispy Mangoes.
Crispy Green’s FruitziO® freeze-dried fruit snacks, which are also 100-percent all natural with just a hint of natural cane sugar, are less than 100 calories and available in the following flavors: Apples & Strawberries, Apricots, Kiwi, Peaches and Strawberries. (MSRP: $3.49).
