Looking for a snack that’s a bit different, healthy and yet tastes great? Then 100 percent organic, “bake-dried” Cinnamon Apple Chips from Bare Fruit just might be what you’re looking for.
No sugar or preservatives are used in this gluten-free snack, just organic apples and organic cinnamon. That’s it. A 14-ounce bag is said to contain “30 apples” in it, according to the label.
The texture is crispier than you would expect from merely dehydrated fruit. And both the apples and the cinnamon offer a natural sweetness that’s so strong you won’t miss the sugar.
A chewiness will be off-putting to those who like their foods more processed, and you’re likely to find the occasional bit of apple core in a chip or two.
You could add these to cereal or to salads with a sweeter edge. Or just toss them with pecans.
Bare Fruit also makes “bake-dried” cherries and pears among other items, according to the company’s Web site, www.barefruitsnacks.com. We found only the Cinnamon Apple Chips at Costco, where the 14-ounce bag sold for $5.99.
