If you’re looking for a quick way to get your fruit fix for the day, look no further than these Crunchies 100% Organic Strawberries.  They are freeze dried strawberries that taste just like the real thing, only crunchy.  Each of these packages contains 5 servings of fruit, which is what the USDA recommends you eat daily.

Crunchies 100% Organic Strawberries are made with real strawberries so you get real strawberry flavor.  Seeing these, I had high expectations for these strawberries.  I’ve had freeze dried fruit before and I am a fan.  The strawberries are cut into pieces before they are freeze dried so what you end up with are light and crispy pieces of fruit that taste just like the real thing.  There are no added sugars so the flavor is all going to depend on the flavor of the fresh strawberries that are being used.  Some will be sweet and some will be sour.  In the beginning, I was eating the pieces 1 at a time, but then I tried eating a handful at a time and it tasted even better.  You get more strawberry flavor and the blend of sweet and sour pieces blend together for a great strawberry taste.

Nutrition Facts
Under ingredients, all you will see is 100% Organic Strawberries, so these are good for you.  The serving size is the entire package.  With just 98 Calories, no fat, no cholesterol, 1mg of sodium, 12g of sugars and 2g of protein this is definitely “Nature’s Ultimate Snack Food.” 

Overall, we liked these Crunchies 100% Organic Strawberries.  I wish the fruit was a little sweeter, but that’s just going to depend on the fresh strawberries they use.  Another tip, if you’re going to split these up into several different sittings, make sure the bag is completely sealed.  We might have left a crack open and when we went to eat them again, they weren’t as crispy as the day we opened them.  My other complaint is that these are pretty expensive.  $4.89 for a 1 ounce package would mean that these are going to be only an occasional snack rather than an everyday snack.  For more information about the Crunchies line of snacks, visit their website at:

Taste: With these Crunchies, you get real fruit flavor in a crunchy chip.  There are sweet pieces and sour pieces so it is best to eat these a handful at a time. 

Labeling:  The labeling on this package is just like on their other packages.  It is colorful to attract your attention and the clear window in the package lets you see exactly what you are getting. 

Packaging:  The fact that this package is resealable is a big plus however, you have to eat a good amount of it before you can use that resealable strip.  If you reseal it for storing, make sure you zip it up all the way or you will end up with soggy pieces.
