Not much can top an organic snack full of vitamins, minerals, and fiber, that can hold up well in the heat and in my purse, has one ingredient, is naturally sweet, gluten-free, and my girls are crazy about. Sounds too good to be true, right? Peeled Snacks are my new favorite item to keep stocked at the house. Everything about them is fun and exciting, from the packaging, to the taste.
I love the bright colors and fun names on each single-serve package. There’s Banan-a-peel, Apricot-a-lot, much-ado-about-Mango, Aplpe-2-the-core, Cherry-go-round (not pictured), Raisin-expectations (not pictured), and pine-4-Pineapple (not pictured). Then open up the package, and at the first taste you’re hooked! I’ve tried them all now, and Mango is my favorite. It’s chewy and sweet, like a gummy treat, but it’s fruit. Real. Organic. Fruit. When I asked the girls which is their favorite, my oldest quickly said mango, then changed her mind to cherry, then banana, and changed it again to apple. So I think it’s safe to say, they’re all amazing.
The company producing these tasty, healthy snacks wants to provide the best and most nutritious snacks. The first sentence of their mission statement on their website says it all:
“At Peeled Snacks we know that food starts out delicious and nutritious, and it doesn’t need some machine to improve it, or an engineer to perfect it.”
I love that! Wouldn’t it be wonderful if all companies felt this way? Go read the whole mission statement. This really is one amazing company!
These have been perfect to take to the pool this summer, and will be great for any outdoor activity. I started cycling recently, and while I haven’t gone out for a ride over an hour-and-a-half, I know the day will be here soon when I’m out there for several hours, and need something to snack on. I need something that will last for hours in the Georgia heat and humidity, and this will be perfect! It’ll give me a just enough carbs to keep going and plenty of flavor to keep me satisfied. I’ve also stored a few in my car for an emergency situation — a must when you tote little ones around!
