Very pleasedReview by JoyI was very pleased with these FD pears. They are tasty right out of the bag and taste like fresh pears when reconstituted with cool water. I am going to try hot water next to see if they taste like my canned pears. If a person has to buy fruit to can I'm thinking this is a very cost effective way to put up food. Something I like to know -- 1.5 lb package filled 9 pint jars. Of course that's dry and will bulk up when re-hydrated.
Very, VERY Tiny pears!Review by CherylTo snack on them, you need to use a spoon. The texture was soft and chewy not crisp at all but the flavor was good.
Perfect early eater snack & fiber!Review by an adventurous toddlerWe've been using NBT freeze-dried fruits & veg as snacks for our daughter since a 22-day road trip last summer at age 1... highly recommend! We were able to use food to stave off bored toddler meltdowns WITHOUT making a huge mess in the car or feeding her nutritionless rice puffs for 3 weeks straight, and now at home I can give her an unprocessed snack with zero effort. We always have a couple little tupperware of freeze dried treats in the diaper bag. We mixed these with other tiny dice fruits for a baby trail mix, put them on her highchair tray to practice pincer grasping, and added them to eeeeeverything when she needed more, ahem, fiber (she hates prunes). They're small enough to escape "spill proof" snack cups, BUT they don't stain anything either.
DeliciousReview by JoyI'm afraid these pears were so good right out of the bag that I never found out how they would be reconstituted. Wonderful, healthy snack!
Easy to Prepare
- Use dry as a healthy snack, as an addition to trail mixes, or as a topping for cereals and desserts.
- For most other applications, hydrate by soaking for 5 minutes in a generous amount of cold or hot water (hot water works slightly better). Then drain.
