My addiction to buying off deal sites has led me to stumble upon some great products. This week it led me to one of my new favorite things. Peeled Snacks.
I wish I could remember what deal site I found them on so I could link to it with an affiliate link, you could all click on it and I could in turn make money, but I can’t remember. THIS is why I am not a deal blogger.
Every day I have to pack my kids lunch as well as a snack. And when they come home from school they are usually howling for a snack as well. Since cutting out processed food a few years back, snacks are harder to find that fit our family’s way of eating. We do a lot of fruit, I make granola bars from time to time, and did I mention fruit?
One of my kid’s favorite foods is dried fruit. I gotta say I love it too, but most dried fruit you buy in the store is packed with ridiculous amounts of sugar. Which in my humble opinion, totally defeats the purpose of eating fruit. I mean would you cut and apple and before you give it to your kids dip it in sugar. (caramel maybe……)
Peeled Snacks have no added sugar. They are organic, gluten free, low calorie, little bags of deliciousness. They are a great size for a snack of a side for their lunch bag. The downside is that I can’t seem to keep them around because my family won’t stop eating them!
The other downfall is that they are a bit pricier than some dried fruit you might be used to. You can find them at Starbucks and Whole Foods, but I have found that they are often on sale on Amazon. And according to the 750 deal emails I find in my inbox every morning, they are often popping up on deal sites for about half price.
I won’t be buying these all the time, but you can bet that I will be keeping my eye out for sales and deals. Plus it is hard to put a price on hearing your kids beg for more fruit. Now if they could just find a way do this for brussel sprouts…..
