peeled snacks

Recently saw these in a magazine, I think "Health", and wanted to find them locally. After looking at all the places they listed on their website, I came up empty, so I ordered online.

These little packages of fruit and nuts by Peeled Snacks are good. The nuts are packed separately from the fruit so they don't get soggy.

Another good thing is that they don't charge an arm and a leg for the shipping. At US$27.99 (with shipping) for 3 each of 3 "flavors" (total 9 bags), it comes out to a little over US$3 a bag. Each bag is 2 servings.

You may be surprised because there is just 2/3 cup of nuts and fruit in one bag, (maybe a bit pricey??) but it is just the right amount for a snack. (Though it does take some willpower to save the other half of the bag for another snack.)

Here are the "flavors" I got: Bing Bing Cherry (peaches, apples, bing cherries, walnuts & cashews), Plu-what? (white peaches, plums, cashews & pluots), Fig Sated (apricots, figs, dates, almonds & pistachios). So far I've tried the Fig Sated and loved it. All the fruits were moist, not hard like some dried fruits can be. And the nuts a little salty but crunchy.

I'm glad I ordered them and glad I tried them, can't wait to try the other 2 "flavors".

I got a gift basket last year that had two of these in it; the Plu-what? and I think a mango one. I thought they were pretty good but you do need a lot of will power to not eat the whole bag at once. ;-) They make a great travel snack--good to know they ship here at a decent price.

I wish I came home at a cooler time, Deb, they have one with dark chocolate in it which they've discontinued for the summer. :(

Take care.

I like the names! These sound too good not to eventually upgrade to economy bin size so you can buy them at Costco. No way I could stop at half a bag...

Rowena,
I know if they made the bags bigger I would probably eat the whole thing in one sitting :p

Take care.

How come all the good and healthy stuff are expensive. Sounds like it's worth the price, though.
