Organic Apple Chips

by Mother of two

I love simple products when it comes to food.  Grandma just gave Little Lum a big bag of organic baked-dried cinnamon apple chips from “BareFruit”. They are crispy, not too sweet, and simply delicious.  They are made from organic Washington State Apples with no added sugar or preservatives.  Best of all they are made in the good old U.S.A.

I used to buy another brand from Costco, “Brothers All Natural Crisps”.  I stopped buying it because I discovered that they were made in China.  Sorry to the people of China. I spend extra purchasing organic products for my kids simply for peace of mind and the concept of organic products from China seem a bit contradictory to me given their safety records.

The apple chips from BareFruit also stay crispier longer than the Brother All Natural Crisps.  Because Brother All Natural freeze dry their fruits, once you open the bag the contents have to be eaten immediately otherwise moisture in the air will re-hydrate the fruit and they become soft and stale. This is why the come in smaller individual packets.
