Not to miss @ Grocery Outlet; All Natural “Crunchies”Posted: September 29, 2009 | Author: admin | Filed under: Food Items, Grocery Outlet | Leave a comment »
This week we discovered Crunchies at Grocery Outlet. Crunchies are basically dehydrated fruit, but very airy and light. They are made by removing the water from the fruit in a refrigerated vacuum (at least, according to the box). The results are very flavorful, extremely light, crunchy foams of fruit. They supposedly keep their nutrients, but you can eat a full fruit in 2 bites.
Each box of Crunchies comes with 9 packages, 3 of each kind. One contains strawberries, another a mixture of mangoes, strawberries, apples, raspberries, blueberries and peaches, and the final one mangoes, bananas, strawberries, pineapple and oranges. Each package of dried fruit is equivalent to one serving of fruit (which, btw, is either 1 piece of fruit or 1/2 cup of fruit, depending on the fruit in question). Of course, one package of crunchies is unlikely to make even a small dent in your hunger, but it’s a very easy, very healthy snack. And quite perfect for when you are craving something sweet.
I’ll check later how much the Crunchies were at Grocery Outlet (I can’t find the receipt), they have a msp of $9!!!
