I actually love fruit, bananas and grapes being my favorites. But, being disabled, I usually make a complete mess of myself when I eat any fresh fruits that are juicy. So, I tend to keep my fruit consumption to either the bananas and grapes, have someone else cut/peel the fruit for me, or resort to canned fruits, which defeat the point of 'healthy.'

But what about freeze dried fruits? Could they help me get my recommended amount of fruits into me, without the mess? After being sent an assortment of Crispy Fruit snacks, I put that theory to the test.

For this review, I was sent the Crispy Fruit Assortment pack.

I love mangoes… at least the juice. As a teenager, I would drink Snapple’s Mango Madness like crazy.
This was an interesting taste. Upon opening the bag, I was greeted with an AWFUL scent… I actually DON’T know how to describe the scent. It almost smelled like a rotten mango combined with a musty scent. It was very off-putting, and I was scared to actually eat the pieces.
But the scent doesn’t affect the taste. Once the mango pieces hit my saliva, they re-hydrated a bit and I could taste the mango flavor I was used to as a teenager.
TASTE: 8/10

I usually like pineapple, but this was a bit TOO hard on my gums. I could really taste the pineapple in this, but the pointy edges hurt my already tender gums.
TASTE: 9/10


Crispy Fruit Freeze Dried Asian Pears

I really wasn’t one for pears growing up. But these, I really liked. They were very tender, even more tender than the apples. I’m not entirely sure what an Asian Pear should taste like. I’ve only really ate the green pears. But these taste pretty similar to green pears.
TASTE: 8/10

Very tart and tangy, but yet sweet. Freeze-drying these didn’t lose any of the flavoring. Almost had the texture of cheese curls or cheese puffs. Had a nice crunch to them. I liked these a lot, since I could enjoy the taste of tangerines without the stickiness and the mess from the juice.
TASTE: 9.5/10

I was not expecting a soft, easily chewable piece when I opened the bag of these apple pieces. The dried apples I'm used to are very chewy and rubbery. As I said, these were easily chewed and seemed to dissolve with my saliva.
I really liked these. These were one of my favorites.
TASTE: 9.5/10

Another surprise of the package. I'm used to hard, crunchy slices when I eat dried bananas. But these were very soft on the teeth and very delicious. I could really taste the banana flavor in these.
TASTE: 10/10

The biggest problem I see disabled people having with these is opening the bags. Even though they have the 'Easy Open' notches in them, I still had to take scissors to them. Chewing these snacks shouldn't be an issue as with the exception of the Pineapple pieces, these pretty much dissolve when they hit saliva.

This is available from Shop.Crispygreen.com starting at $1.49 for a single bag.

FINAL THOUGHTS
A great way to get your RDA of fruits without the mess of peelings and juices
