Peeled Snacks - Review and Giveaway!

Always the snacker, I've been on the lookout for healthy foods that don't break the waistline. You know, now that I'm finally not pregnant I don't really have anybody else to blame for these extra pounds. Plus, I'm trying to instill better eating habits in my children than I have, so healthy snacking is a must no matter how much I want to eat that whole block of colby jack sitting in the fridge.

Peeled Snacks is a great way to sneak in healthy snacking. They sell organic dried fruits and nuts from sustainable farms with super-cute names like, Much-Ado-About-Mango and Cherry-Go-Round. Even Oprah says she snacks on Peeled Snacks, and really if we can't trust Oprah, what is the world coming to? We were sent Pine-4-Pineapple, Much-ado-about-Mango, and Banan-a-peel to review.

I was a little unsure, but when I tried them I was surprised at how strong the flavors were from the dried fruits. My favorite was the Much-Ado-About-Mango. I'm actually not a big Mango person at all, but in dried form it is super sweet and tropical. It was the perfect snack on a summer's day along with a handful of cashews.

My kiddos loved the bananas. Unlike other dried bananas that we've tried, these still had a little chew left in them so they were a lot easier for my kids to eat. My little Rosebud loves all three of the flavors and ate the Pine-4-Pineapple all on her own!

You can buy Peeled Snacks in Starbucks across the U.S. and Canada, and online!

Thanks to Peeled Snacks, one lucky reader will win the "Tropical Organic Mix" which contains 9 snacks: 3 each of pine-4-Pineapple, much-ado-about-Mango & Banan-a-peel!
