Fruitzio Freeze Dried Fruit Snacks (Kiwi)

Fruitzio is a line of freeze-dried fruit snacks (made by Crispy Green). They are made with only the "finest fruit" and freeze dried with just a hint of natural sugar. I received samples of the Kiwi variety to try and let me tell you, this is was yummy - BUT be prepared for a very TART/ SOUR favor.

I didn't think freeze-dried kiwis would be so tart, but they are. I made that scrunched up "this is SOUR face" as I ate a piece ... and then reached for more. If you don't like extremely sour sometimes, you're not going to like this - but since I do, I had no problems having 1 serving - and just 1. The sourness acts like built in portion-control since all I could handle in 1 sitting was just a few pieces.

There are about 2.5 servings in a bag of Fruitzio Freeze-Dried Kiwi Fruit Snacks, and each 10 gram serving provides just 40 calories from 3 grams of sugars and 1 gram of fiber (no protein or fat).

The ingredients are freeze-dried kiwi and cane sugar. These can be purchased online at Fruitzio for $3.49 each (25 gram bag) or $42 for a case with 12. This is a very unique flavor - I had mine as a stand-alone snack, but you could use Fruitzio Kiwi to jazz up plain yogurt, to cereal and to really make a salad kick! It's a little on the pricey side, but I know I'll be buying this in the future.
