I had the opportunity to review these dried fruits, and I was sure they would be yummy coming from a California orchard. I just didn’t realize just how fresh and flavorful the fruit would be. I actually saved the fruit until after I had my baby and was in the hospital and I am so glad I did! It was the best post-childbirth snack I could have eaten. Full of vitamins and fiber – just what a mom needs! The fruit itself was chewy and soft, no dry pieces or anything lacking flavor. Everything was fresh – so fresh that it actually has a short shelf life. It seems as though Bella Viva picked the most juicy, ripe fruit from their orchard and dried it on the spot.
High in fiber, you can mix them with some almonds and walnuts for your own custom trail mix. Our Dried Mixed Fruit is also perfect for baking — they offer a sweet, succulent burst of flavor in your favorite fruit cake and muffin recipes.
