{Peeled Snacks} Review & GIVEAWAY! *CLOSED*

So what snacks are your kids {or you, for that matter} eating today? Are they made with processed sugars? trans fats? or perhaps enriched wheat? Why not treat them {and yourself!} to something tasty and healthy!

I'd like to introduce you to Peeled Snacks, a company that specializes in bringing you fruits and nuts without any added sugar or fat. And what a novelty ~ when you look at the back of the package to check out the ingredients, instead of seeing a laundry list of things {of which you have no idea what they are!}, you see only "bananas" or "cherries," for example. A beauty. You may have seen Peeled Snacks before, as certain local retailers offer them, Starbucks being one of the latest. Their products are packaged in convenient "to-go" sized bags, that are easy to grab from the pantry and of course, allow for the freshest of snacks upon opening. And opening is a cinch, as you merely pull open with fingers, no tools {scissors} required.


The nuts are dry roasted and lightly salted, while the fruits are large chunks and quite moist ~ not the itty bitty dried up stuff you'll find in most trail mixes. They also offer many fruits organically, and for the chocolate lovers {like myself!}, they have rich dark chocolate of 61% cacao {Mmmmmmm}.


So Peeled Snacks sent us 6 separate packs of their fruits to try out: Cherry-go-round, and their 5 other organic fruit choices: pine-4-Pineapple, much-ado-about-Mango, Banan-a-peel, Apricot-a-lot & Apple-2-the-core {cute names, eh?}. They were a hit at our house, for sure. Now my son loves fruit anyway, but it's hard keeping fresh fruit at the house all the time, and these allow for just grabbing and going instead of washing, chopping and sticking in a bowl to take with first. Very convenient.

Our favorites were the cherries {Cherry-go-round} and Mangos {much-ado-about-Mango}, but they were all fantastic, and I really don't think you can go wrong with any choice. Next up, we'd love to try their Plu-what? {white peaches, plums, pluots & cashews} and Shock-olate {dark chocolate, pears, apricots, almonds & walnuts}...they sound simply divine.

I also must add that not only are they one of my new favorite snacks, but they've also been recommended {and eaten, of course!} by such celebrities as Mariah Carey, Liv Tyler & Oprah. As Oprah states, "Because they're packed separately, the nuts stay crunchy, the fruit stays moist, and you get a delicious boost over that 4p.m. energy slump." -The O Magazine

You can purchase your Peeled Snacks online or check their site for local retailers of their products.

And here's what you've been waiting for!!
