Bare Fruit Cinnamon Apple Chips {Giveaway}

I do a lot of dehydrating, especially in the past year since I received my Excalibur. Dehydrated snacks like fruit leather, peanut butter crunch and cheesy kale chips are staples.  I have also had fun preserving vegetables from my garden and taking advantage of sales on high quality fruit (pineapple). Buying dehydrated fruit usually involves added sugar and preservatives, which I have avoided completely for nearly a year now.  Another downside is that it is hard to find organic dried fruit, which I believe is important when concentrating foods because chemicals are also concentrated.

Bare Fruit is one company that set the bar higher than the rest. Their products contain only one ingredient; organic fruit, except for the Cinnamon Apple Chips, which contain two and I bet you can guess what they are. They sent me a sample of their Cinnamon Apple Chips and boy howdy, they were delicious! The crunch is amazing, seriously as addicting as potato chips! The apples are bake-dried, so they will not have the enzymes of low-temperature, home-dehydrated apples. The texture that this "baking" gives the apples transforms them into a completely new category of snack food. I couldn't taste the cinnamon at all, but it didn't matter because the apples had excellent flavor

I am planning to buy more for our upcoming family reunion.  My kids with think they are cool eating packaged food.  There are not many convenience foods we enjoy anymore because of our strict adherence to the GAPS protocol. I am grateful to companies like Bare Fruit who raise the bar for everybody. Keep in mind for both cost and serving size that dehydrated fruit is super concentrated. One 2.6 ounce bag contains more than five apples, so you may not want to eat the whole bag!

To enter for your chance to win a case of 12-2.6 ounce packages of Bare Fruit Cinnamon Apple Chips  ($28.73 value), simply "like" both Bare Fruit and Taste is Trump on Facebook, come back here to Taste is Trump and leave one comment telling me that you did both. Contest closes at 11:59 p.m. mountain time on Friday, June 15, 2012 and the winner will be announced on Saturday, June 16, 2012. The winner will have three days to claim their prize, so be sure to check back.
