Crunchies Freeze-Dried Fruit Snacks Keep It Simple

From our friends at Crunchies...

Company Delivers Nutrition, Flavor & Convenience with Just One Ingredient

Let’s get real. That’s the motto for new and improved natural food company Crunchies and its tasty line of all-natural, freeze-dried fruit snacks. With just one simple, authentic ingredient - fresh fruit - Crunchies has developed a snack food that’s not just addictive and delicious but packed with impressive nutrition to boot.

Unlike traditional heat drying, the freeze-drying method used by Crunchies ensures that fresh fruit retains its nutritional value while enhancing shelf life - and creating that satisfying crunch. After harvesting, fresh fruits are promptly frozen and undergo a low-pressure drying process in which frozen water is removed directly as steam, bypassing the liquid state. As a result, Crunchies products retain most of the nutrients of fresh, whole fruit, making them a smart food choice for consumers of all ages. Plus, each serving of Crunchies is only around 40 calories.

Due to its responsible sourcing practices and commitment to traceability, Crunchies is the only U.S. consumer freeze-dry brand that is vertically integrated farm to fork. And because the company wants customers to feel confident knowing where their food comes from, it insists on close relationships with international farmers and suppliers. In addition to supporting local economies across the globe, Crunchies respects its American roots as the only company in the category to maintain most freeze-drying operations within the U.S.

“We are simplifying the lives of active, health-conscious shoppers by offering a snack that’s hands-down the best in terms of ingredients, nutrition, taste and convenience,” says Scott Jacobson, president and CEO of Crunchies Natural Food Company. “Our hope is that, by giving people a new way to enjoy pure fruit, we can help them make better choices for themselves and their families.”

Available in both single-serve packs and larger grab-n-go resealable pouches, Crunchies freeze-dried products provide a much-needed respite from junk foods and fruit snacks that contain little to no fruit. They contain no added sugar and no artificial flavors or coloring and are non-GMO, gluten-free, vegan, kosher and halal certified. Crunchies’ product line includes strawberries, mango, pineapple, blueberries, raspberries, grapes, cinnamon apple, strawberry banana and mixed fruit.

Crunchies products are now available in stores nationwide for an SRP of $4.99 - 5.99 for resealable pouches and $1.25 for single-serve bags. For more information and to purchase via the company’s website, please visit
