Have you heard of Bare Fruit? Well let me introduce you, Bare Fruit this is my friend, Friend this is Bare Fruit. I know what you are thinking, they need some cloths right? Well no these beautiful snacks are perfect just the way they are, bare.
What could be better than eating a snack made from all natural, organic fruit? I have tried many varieties of dried fruits and I do have opinions, which I am good at offering, as to which are my favorites. Since Bare Fruit is baked dried it is perfectly crispy. They aren’t overly hard, just the perfect crisp. They aren’t too soggy to make them overly chewy, just the perfect crisp.
All of their baked dried fruit chips have no added sugar, preservatives or additives. Bare Fruit is cored, sliced and baked in wood-burning ovens for over 10 hours, at a very low temperature, to preserve nutrients, freshness, and taste. You can truly taste the difference! The only added ingredient they use is organic cinnamon with the Cinnamon Apple Chips. They offer pears, mangoes, granny smith apples, fuji apples and cinnamon apple chips.
Organic can mean many things and Bare Fruit takes Organic to another level. All of their apples come from Washington State and are bake-dried within thirty miles of the orchard! What a great way to impact your carbon footprint! No pesticides are used, only sustainable farming, with local production.
Bare Fruit is organic, kosher, nut free, gluten-free and GMO free! They also have a very long shelf life of a year.
I received a bag of the Cinnamon Apple Chips to review. It contains 16 servings and the bag says it contains 30 apples in every bag. That is almost 2 apples per serving. My kids can be funny about textures with dried fruits. They were both hesitant to try them. Austin actually down right refused initially. They did both cave and enjoyed that they were crispy, like chips. Tonight before I put Addie to bed, she came towards me to see what snack I had. With a little giggle and a beautiful smile she said “For me?” How could I refuse?
We sat on the bed and ate several together and when I told her I was finished, her reply was, “Not me”. Okay with this Mama. I don’t feel bad allowing her to eat as many as she wishes. A serving contains approximately 58 calories and 14g of natural sugar.
I can say Bare Fruit will be a snack that we reach for in the future. I like to have quick things on hand to snack that way we are not tempted to reach out for other, not so healthy options. We have thoroughly enjoyed the cinnamon apple chips and I think mango will be next on our list!
