I think it’s safe to say I never had a freeze dried peach before. Sure, I’ve had strawberries and apples, and even bananas freeze dried before, but a peach? I was up for giving it a try- I mean why not? I really liked Crispy Greens Crispy Apples and Crispy Asian Pears, and the Fruitzio Freeze Dried Apples & Strawberries.

I tried some of them dry first. Here’s what a piece looked like.

They were light, crispy and at first I thought, wait, what fruit is this again? But as I continued to chew, the sweet flavor of peaches flooded my mouth. It was very tasty, and had that sweet, juicy flavor.  I liked how they were big slices of peaches rather than little pieces as well.

Next I decided to try them in my cereal in place of my morning banana with almond milk. Here’s what it looked like

Even after sitting for a few minutes, they kept a nice crunch and great flavor. Next time I think I might actually break the slices if I use it again in my cereal, as they were a bit big. As I said before, I liked them big when I was eating them dry, but in the cereal I think pieces would be more convenient. Still, nothing I couldn’t very easily fix. They were still sweet, and complimented the almond milk and my cereal perfectly.

Overall, I’m an official fan of freeze dried peaches! They were unique, sweet and crunchy, and very enjoyable. I would try these again. 4 stars

Gotta love simple ingredients!

It’s safe to say that I have eaten at least one apple a day, every day, since I was in middle school. Yep- they ARE my favorite fruits! And quite a lot of years and a LOT of apples were eaten in that time! That’s what I was happy to try the Crispy Greens Crispy Apples with my breakfast this morning, as well as the Crispy Asian Pears.

What I liked about these is that the ingredients is just fruit. No salt, preservatives, or sugar added, it’s just freeze dred fruit. According to the bag, both of them are also gluten free, vegan, dairy free, and peanut free.

I decided to have these with my cereal this morning. Here’s what they looked like out of the bag. (Ignore my ugly handwriting =P )

The Apples

The Asian Pears

As you can see, there was a texture difference. Not huge, but certainly there.

The Crispy Apples were just that- crispy. They also had a nice little crunch to them. They were sweet, yet tart, and pretty good. The Crispy Asian Pears were very soft. Almost as if they were the apples, but I left the bag open over night and they softened up. They just didn’t have the same crunch and crispy consistency that the apples had. However, the flavor was really yummy! They tasted just like a juicy pear would. They were also very sweet. In fact, I couldn’t get over just how sweet they were, and to think there was no added sugar!

Overall, pretty good! I added them to my cereal with almond milk and a banana, and thought they made a great addition. Gotta love that it’s just fruit, and no added sugar or preservatives! 4 stars
