Crunchies Freeze-Dried Mixed Fruit is a 100 percent real, great-tasting mix of peach, blueberry, raspberry, mango, strawberry, and apple. The only thing taken out of the fruit through Crunchies' patented freeze-drying process is water. No additives, no preservatives. That means no added sugar, no oil, no sulphur. They're wheat-free, gluten-free, and GMO-free, but rich in fiber and nutrients. Less water equals more flavor and a satisfying crunch that both kids and adults love. All this and only 25 calories per 1/4 cup! It's truly nature's ultimate snack food, and comes in a convenient resealable bag that's great for kids lunches, hiking, school, work, or any in-between meal snack on-the-go. You can also add them to pancakes, cereal, yogurt, or ice cream. Veggies can be eaten as a snack or sprinkled over your salads, soups and side dishes for added vitamins and nutrients! Crunchies Food Company was established in response to the rapid and overwhelming demand for good-tasting and truly healthy natural snacks on the market. The Company sought to develop a line of pure foods that would blend the tasty fun of potato chips, but but still be completely free of the preservatives, added sugars, trans fats and excessive sodium that are so prevalent among many snack food products. The result was an innovative breakthrough in blending great taste with important nutrition: Crunchies® freeze-dried fruits and vegetables which have proven hugely appealing to everyone from school children to seniors and from health-concious parents to busy executives.
Founded in 1993, Crunchies Food Company began with a mission: to create a line of foods that was not only unique and innovative, but also healthy and great tasting. The company also wanted to ensure that whatever foods they used were grown and handled in a way that was good for the environment, too. From the very beginning, every part of the company's process, including the packaging, literature, food-stuffs, employees, and the commitment to give back to the community, had to reflect the company's overarching philosophy.
Starting with reduced fat granolas with dried cherries and low-fat pancake mixes with orange zest and cardamom, and branching out into trail mixes made with unique organic and conventional fruits, Crunchies Food Company soon made a name for itself in California. But it wasn't until they discovered the uniqueness and healthfulness of freeze-dried fruits and vegetables that they really began to plan for a national expansion. Presently, Crunchies has made their way into some 700 stores nationwide and have been acknowledged by the likes of Bon Appetite, Fitness Magazine, Sports Illustrated for Women, and over a dozen other periodicals. They were also honored by their peers with an award for having one of the most innovative businesses in Central California.
