“Get Peeled”

Haha..  Did that catch your attention?!   
Good now read my review of these yummy new treats!

BUT FIRST!   HOW AWESOME WAS THAT GAME LAST NIGHT?!?! 
It definitely made me proud to be Canadian!!

Ok... bragging done...

The fabulous people over at “Peeled Snacks” sent me some samples of their treats!

Apple-2-the-core, Cherry-go-round, Apricot-a-lot, Much-ado-about-Mango and Pine-4-pineapple!
As soon as I got these yummy treats I checked out their website to see what the deal was,

Here is what I found; (taken from the website)

Real Food Philosophy!
We keep our snacks as close to natural as possible by using high quality ingredients. When you bite into a juicy piece of fruit or a crunchy nut, you'll wonder why anyone would want to add sugar or fat. We've had enough of seeing high fructose corn syrup and other artificial fillers in the foods we buy. Many companies try to save money by using less natural ingredients and replacing them with sugars and fats. At Peeled Snacks, however, using premium ingredients is NOT something on which we're willing to compromise.

First off, who doesn’t love a company that is not willing to compromise quality!  YES! 
Plus no extras – double YES!

I quickly opened a bag and got started!
of course I chose Mango first – I love Mangos!

These were sweet, a bit crunchy and full of MANGOLICIOUS flavor! 
(by the way, mangolicious did not get picked up by my spell checker!)

They tasted super fresh too (double score!).  I buy dried mango all the time in the bulk food section and they have never tasted like this!  WOOT!

Guess what the ingredients were?   Organic Mango and that’s all folks!
And the whole bag - which was a good snackable size was only around 140 calories (sorry I don't have the exacts anymore)

I moved through all the flavours over the past few weeks and discovered they are the perfect snack for in class (which is why you have to excuse me for not taking pictures of each of them!)

Every flavour was fantastic!  They all tasted clean and fresh!

MUCH to my surprise – my absolute favorite were the APRICOTS! 
(I’ve always enjoyed apricots, but never more than mango or pineapple!) 

They almost tasted like caramel!  
I actually shed a tear when the bag was done (I kid, I kid)

The #1 spot was followed VERY closely by the cherries!!  They were tart and chewy and I’m sure chocked full of great antioxidants (since they were so dark and mysterious!)

The only one that I wasn’t a fan of was the apple flavor.
That being said, I usually only enjoy dried apples if they are crispy and the peeled snack ones are more chewy.

Now guess what!  These snacks are all available at STARBUCKS!! Yayyyyyyy Starbucks! (finally have some healthy dairy free snacks for me and you!!)

You can also order them on their website and if you want to get up close and personal, you can even follow them on TWITTER!

Thank you PEELED snacks – I am a huge fan!!

Now just for the record – I will always 100% give you an honest review of any products that I review.  I am not getting anything for this review (well except the free products I received to review!)!  I will tell you the good, the bad or the ugly!  That’s my promise to you!
 
I hope you enjoyed this review, I have a few more that must be done soon!  

Let me know if you have tried these products and which is your fav!?!?

  5. Thanks so much for the re-tweet. I'm glad you enjoyed my post. As for these products, I have never tried them. I'd love to try them, but again, I'm all about saving money, and I know products like this tend to cost an arm and leg. I want to look in to getting a dehydrator so I can make my own!
