Our Thoughts
I love Crispy Green.  I've tried them before so it wasn't hard to accept a review request!  Crispy Green sent me four of the Crispy Fruit packs:  Tangerine, Apple, Asian Pear, and Pineapple.  I am not ashamed to admit I ate them in a very short period of time! 

Out of the four, I couldn't decide between the Asian Pear and the Pineapple as my favorite.  Both flavors are excellent (well, they ALL are!).  Asian Pear and the Apple flavors are a little lighter, more "puff" like.  The Pineapple and the Tangerine have a slightly rougher, crunchier texture.  Most of the freeze dried fruits, you look at them and can immediately tell they are freeze dried fruits.  But the Tangerine . . . you almost need to look twice, they look just like they are fresh!

Following the paleo diet, good quality packaged snack foods are hard to come by, unless you make and pack them yourself. I avoid most commercial dried fruits specifically because of the preservatives and sulfides used.  While I like dried fruit, it's soft and chewy.  Sometimes I want a crispy snack!  Freeze dried fruits are a great way to get that satisfying "crunch", and Crispy Green is perfect for that!  I like they offer variety packs as well as single bags to purchase.  Great travel food, great snack packs!  And, great stocking stuffers for all ages!
