When it comes to snack food, I am always on the hunt for something I know my family will enjoy but that offers healthy alternatives to the sweets that we see plastered all over the market.  Over the last few months, my family and I were given the opportunity to try some Crispy Fruit Snacks from Crispy Green and we loved them so much – I figured I would share them with all of you.

Crispy Green believes in a simple philosophy – keep it pure, keep it tasty and keep it wholesome.  My sons were immediately excited to see these delivered and crossed their fingers in hopes that it didn’t taste like the traditional freeze-dried fruit you get in the store that tastes like it’s 40 years old.  We were able to try out 7 delectable and delicious types of dried fruit, packaged individually – making them great snacks for on the go.  The seven flavors available are:  Cataloupe, Apple, Asian Pear (our favorite), Tangerine, Pineapple, Mango (second favorite) and Banana.  All of them taste delicious, but the boys and I do have our favorites.  Each package includes 100% pure fruit, nothing else!  The Crispy Fruit snacks are 100% freeze-dried fruit slices that are made up of real fruit and the taste of Crispy Fruit comes from the fresh fruit itself.  There is no sugar, sweeteners or other additives used to enhance the taste or appearance.  Crispy Fruit is perfect for indulging in a guilt-free snack without the worry.  The Crispy Fruit snacks are an all-natural snack choice for anyone looking to live a healthier lifestyle without compromising on great taste.

As I mentioned before, the Asian Pear is one of our favorites and the Mango definitely a close second, though my family and I enjoy all of them.  Each piece of fruit you bite into has the flavor that you would expect them to have and the snack is light but fulfilling.  We love how travel friendly and portable each pouch is.  We absolutely loved the taste of each fruit snack that they didn’t last very long in our household and we picked up a bunch of them to give to the twins’ classmates for Halloween.

What we love about Crispy Fruit the most is the quality that goes into each bag.  Sometimes fresh fruit may not be available or may not be the most convenient option.  But, Crispy Green has perfected the “fruit to go” alternative by freeze-drying fresh fruit and transforming it into a delectable, incredible, light and crispy texture that is so satisfying, it reminds me of a chip.  With the freeze-dried process – the nutrients from the fresh fruit is retained without adding anything.  As a mom – I am always looking for the healthy alternative to snacks and I’m loving the fact that my children enjoy these just as much as I do.

Crispy Fruit has easily become one of my family’s favorite snack foods.  My boys love fruit, but it can be so messy to eat when on the go.  Crispy Fruit allows us to take our treats with us, enjoy and not have the mess.
We stock up on Crispy Green at our local WholeFoods or Safeway stores (I’m so glad it is available locally).  You can see a list of locations to purchase Crispy Fruit here.  Do you love fruit but wish it were more portable?  Are you a fan of snacks like this for on the go?  If so, my family and I definitely suggest checking out Crispy Fruit by Crispy Green and see how delicious they for yourself.

The boys and I have reviewed toys here in the past and today is no exception.  With the holidays just a few short weeks away, I wanted to make sure to share a fun toy concept with all of our readers.  Today – we introduce you to Max and Landry, the Buddy Balls.

Buddy Balls was created by a little guy named Max.  One day, he came home with a school project and had to create the “best toy ever”.  He decided to combine two of his favorite toys – his love for sports and his beloved plush sleep buddy.  With a little help from his parents, Buddy Balls were born.  MaxLand Toys was inspired by Max’s creation with a goal of producing a high-quality plush toy that would become a childhood favorite.  And, in our household – it certainly has.

The original collection of Buddy Balls includes four stuffed friends – Max, Landry, Sam and Eva and MaxLand Toys has since added four more additional buddies in the Sports Collection.  With a few twists and flips and a push and pull – Max and Landry transform into a bright colored plush ball.

The twins absolutely love their new furry friends.  Each of the buddies are so plush and soft and they use their friends’ zipper area as storage for their favorite toys – cars, legos, etc.  The bears come in four different colors and the pattern on their paws show what color the ball is.

The twins have found a new cuddly buddy and love sleeping with Max and Landry because their fur is so soft and smooth.  Each bear we received is very plush and would make the perfect gift for any child or child at heart.  And, did I mention that Buddy Balls offers accessories for their buddies? Sports uniforms & jerseys are available for purchase to give your buddies clothes and extra love and care.
