Sensible Foods Crunch Dried Snacks Food Review

Food Review: Sensible Foods Crunch Dried Snacks

Driving home from a climbing trip this weekend, I found myself in an all-too-common dilemma — "How do I stay healthy while road tripping?" Skipping the fast food mainstays, I ventured into 7-11, hoping to find something to snack on until I got home. Situated next to the gummy snacks were a few bags of Sensible Foods Crunch Dried Snacks ($2). With a label that read, "100 percent organic, all natural, fat free, and no added sugar crunchy fruit snacks," I was feeling optimistic.

Guess what? For once the label was telling the truth. I bought the "Cherry Berry" mix, a blend of dried cherries, blueberries, strawberries, and apples. Unlike most dried fruit snacks, all the moisture in the Sensible Foods fruit snacks has been removed, making the finished product super crunchy. I was surprised at how flavorful the fruit tasted, and specifically, that each fruit held onto its unique flavor. The crunchiness totally satisfied the chip lover in me and it was a nice departure from how chewy and tough dried fruit can often taste. I think Sensible Foods fruit snacks would taste great tossed into yogurt or a salad, and would also satisfy a candy craving.

As for the health factor, it comes pretty close to the real thing. Because the fruits are dried at the peak of ripeness, all the nutritional content remains intact. There's no added sugar either — in fact, the ingredient list is pretty simple: "100 percent fruit." Each bag qualifies as one serving of fruit and is only about 80 calories. I'm definitely stoked on them and can't wait to try a few of the other mixes, like the tropical or orchard blend. If you're more of a savory snacker, the brand also has corn and soy nut snack bags.

im totally addicted to these things! i buy the 12-pouch boxes on amazon for roughly 16 dollars or so and they have all of the flavors. best thing for me is that they qualify for prime shipping so i recommend the orchard or tropical blend for anyone willing to try them!
