Freeze Dried Blueberries

October 11, 2011 - 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.  We have a whole garden of freeze dried fruits available; if you're looking for a place to start, why not give Trader Joe's Freeze Dried Blueberries a try?

These are whole blueberries 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.  Check out the ingredients listed on the bag: Freeze Dried Blueberries. That's it.  Gotta love wholesome snacks.  They're great for snacking anytime – we've discovered that kids, especially, find them not only delicious but fascinating as well (warning: they may leave a bit of their blue hue on little fingers…).  We like to add them to cereals for a little extra flavor, they make excellent on-the-go snacks, and of course, they're perfectly at home on the trail, as part of a mix or on their own.

Trader Joe's Freeze Dried Blueberries come in a 1.2 ounce resealable bag – sure, that may not sound like much, but it takes about 8.5 ounces of fresh, ripe blueberries to produce this much freeze dried fruit.  We're selling each bag for $3.29.  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.
