Freeze Dried Strawberries
April 27, 2015—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read; price & availability may have changed.
Once relegated to pocket sized packs in stores that specialize in camping and backpacking supplies, freeze dried fruits have become a staple in our dried fruit & nut section at Trader Joe’s. If you haven’t tried them yet, we think Freeze Dried Strawberries are a delicious introduction to the category.
These are strawberry slices that have undergone a special freeze-drying process so they remain extremely flavorful, but unlike conventionally dried berries, they’re free of added sugar and they pack a bit of a crunch. They’re great for snacking anytime – we’ve discovered that kids, especially, find them not only delicious but fascinating as well. Lest you think they’re only for kids, we’ll go on record as fans of these crunchy little berries added to cereals for a little extra flavor. Of course, given their pedigree, they’re perfectly at home on the trail, as part of a mix or on their own.
Trader Joe’s Freeze Dried Strawberries come in a 1.2 ounce resealable bag – that may not sound like much, but it takes 12 ounces of fresh, ripe strawberries to produce this much freeze dried fruit. We’re selling each bag for $3.49. We recommend that you keep the bag tightly sealed after opening to preserve the crunch, though to be honest, they don’t usually last long enough to lose the crunch.
