Hey everyone! Today I’m going to do something a little different. You’ve seen me share my recipes and sometimes a craft here and there but I’m going to give a little shout out to this amazing company! They produce these flavorful dried fruit snack strips!
Peaceful Fruits was founded by Evan Delahanty back in 2014. Evan traveled to Suriname during his mission with the Peace Corps and fell in love. There he was introduced to acai. Now if you don’t know the benefits of acai let me give you a little rundown! Acai is high in antioxidants, fiber and heart healthy fats it also helps fight free radicals and aging as well as promotes brain and heart health! Those are just a few of its benefits! With learning about this tiny fruit a mission began.
Evan states “I started Peaceful Fruits to help the people of the Amazon Rainforest improve their standard of living without sacrificing their way of life. We want to help everyone understand and benefit from the renewable bounty of the rainforest, so the whole planet can live happier, healthier lives. Our products are sustainable super snacks made from wild superfood acai, but our mission is much more.”
When I was given the chance to review this product I jumped at the opportunity. Being a mother of 4 children I’m always looking for healthy snack alternatives! It’s not often when I can get my kids to not try to reach for the box of Little Debbie’s! We figured the best way to test these out was when we went on a road trip! These are so easy to tuck away and carry along with you and don’t require any refrigeration! It made it so easy for us to just grab and go. These were great! I My kids really enjoyed these plus I’m so surprised that my husband who is super picky kept asking me to tear him off more pieces!
These come in two flavors Wild Acai + Apple and Wild Acai + Pineapple, both were equally flavorful. When I first saw these my mind immediately went to fruit leather which is pretty close to what it is. These products are slow dried into these fruit strips! Which I absolutely love! They keep their process simple and nothing artificial added. These snacks are vegan/paleo, non-GMO, gluten-free and 100% organic even the packaging is compostable!
Would I buy this product? A thousand times over yes I would. You can’t beat a snack that has all the benefits as this one and still taste great and be kid friendly! I love the benefits and the story behind this company and would love to have this product as a go to snack any day!
