Sweetened Dried Orange Slices

August 01, 2016 in Category: What's New

Oranges are succulent, juicy fruits perfect for eating and snacking. But what happens when you’re doing an activity that isn’t conducive to eating oranges? For instance, it would be quite difficult to eat an orange while bike riding, or walking your dog, or rock climbing. Well, we’ve solved these problems with Trader Joe’s Sweetened Dried Orange Slices!

Of course, we know Dried Orange Slices are different from their sweet fruits of origin, but these slices bring their own commendable qualities to the table—or the bag. After choosing the best and brightest oranges around, our vendor washes, slices, and then boils the oranges for one to two hours, until they reach the ideal tenderness.

The slices are then soaked in a sweet syrup before finally drying in a hot air oven for 10 to 12 hours—and by then, they’ve been dried to perfection. The final product packs all of the beloved orange flavor into a chewy, dried, mouthwatering slice.

These dried wheels of sweet, orangey chewiness are as versatile as they are delicious (and round). Eat whole slices from the bag during the aforementioned activities listed above—or any other activity you might enjoy. Decorate cakes and other baked goods. Or, dip in white or dark chocolate for an extra sweet and appealing treat.

Orange you glad Trader Joe’s Sweetened Dried Orange Slices are just $1.99 for a 5.28 ounce bag?! You’re probably also glad we waited until the end of the story to make that pun...
