Many of us have fallen victim to the false advertisement of food companies, particularly when it comes to fruit snacks. Fruit snacks are not fruit! It sounds obvious, but many of us have been tricked into thinking they contain redeeming ingredients. However, most of these fruit snacks are simply laden with sugar and made with tons of artificial additives. If you don’t already know, excess sugar can cause a whole host of health issues, from bloating to insulin resistance and even diabetes. In this short video, Chris offers up a natural solution to those fruit snack cravings.

When you’re craving something sweet, fresh or freeze-dried fruit is a way better option for you. Why? Fruit contains fiber along with natural sugar, meaning it slows down the absorption of sugar into your body and avoids the harmful effects of excess sugar. Eating natural fruit is good for you, but dried fruit (without added sugar) is just as healthy and sometimes a little more convenient to pack with you on the go. If you’re a fan of dried fruit but find it’s too sticky or gets hot and mushy, try freeze-dried fruit! Crispy Fruit Snacks by Crispy Green are made of 100% fruit and nothing else—no artificial flavors or added sugars.

Because they’re freeze dried, these fruit snack retain the fruit’s natural fiber and the sweet fruit taste, but are light and crisp, unlike traditional dried fruit. These are a great alternative to “fruit snacks” that actually contain fruit! The next time you need a snack to pack for a busy day or to put in your kids’ lunches, skip the traditional fruit snacks and opt for Crispy Green’s Crispy Fruit Snacks. They’re a light, crispy, and fun way to get your fruit snack fix in an all-natural way.
