There’s this granola from Whole Foods that I really like that has freeze dried strawberries in it and I always find myself picking out the strawberries. And recently a drink I had in Vegas had freeze dried raspberries. As much as I love my freeze dried fruit, I didn’t know if I loved it enough to buy a whole bag.
Then one day, I decided I did.
Aren’t they prettyyyyy? They look like normal sliced strawberries, don’t they? It’s so weird! Well I guess not really, but still, sorta!
If you’ve never had freeze dried berries, let me explain the awesome that they are. It’s sort of like a puffy pillow of strawberry. The flavor is strong and it’s very tarty (seriously, my mouth is watering just explaining this). They don’t have a marshmallow consistency or similarity either, which is why I used the term “puffy pillow”.
Not only that but it’s also kinda good for you! Sure it has 16g of sugar but honestly, what doesn’t?! What surprised me was that it had protein, vitamin C and iron! I’m always on the hunt for food with iron!
I strongly suggest if you’re a fruit fan to try strawberry first! I had apple ones about a year ago and didn’t enjoy them. Which is probably why I was hesitant about these. If you’ve always been curious about these suckers I say go try them out! I got this bag for about $2 at Target, super inexpensive and it’ll last you awhile!
