Crispy Green Freeze-Dried Fruit Snack Review & Giveaway

Yesterday, I wrote a blog about the importance of getting enough fruits and vegetables in your diet — and the fact that many of us fall short of our fruit and veggie targets. A recent survey conducted by the Centers for Disease Control that was published in Morbidity and Mortality Weekly reported that only one in three adults in the US eats at least two servings of fruit each day. That means that two in every three of us fall short of the recommended fruit intake needed for good health.

So how are YOU doing? Do you eat at least 2 cups or fruit each day? What are your excuses? Too busy to peel fruit. Fruit’s too messy to eat on the run? Fruit in your desk at work gets over-ripe?

Well throw those excuses out the window and start spring with a fruit-rich diet. My friends at Crispy Green sent me a box of samples of Crispy Green® Crispy Fruit and FruitziO® freeze-dried fruit snacks. Crispy Fruit has one ingredient — freeze-dried fruit. Yes, that’s right. A fruit snack that contains just fruit! Crispy Fruit comes in single-serving bags containing about one serving of fruit and 55 calories or less per bag. The larger FruitziO® bags have a bit of sugar added and are perfect for sharing, with a little over two servings in each bag and about the same amount of calories if you share one bag between two people. The fruit’s easy to eat, with no juice or messy peels to contend with. And more important — it’s delicious!

So the next time you want a crunchy snack and you’re thinking of grabbing for a bag of calorie and fat-laden chips, turn instead to some freeze-dried fruit. You’ll enjoy the same crunchy snack time yumminess with less calories than your usual chips. And better yet, you’ll easily get in your daily fruit servings.

I’m giving away two single-serving bags of Crispy Green® Crispy Fruit to one lucky winner who will be randomly selected from those leaving comments after this blog between today and the end of Friday.
