No Tricks Here—Crispy Fruit Snacks are the Perfect Better-For-You Halloween Treat
Fairfield, NJ – October 6, 2020 – Halloween in the age of COVID is a little tricky this year. Regardless of how you’ll be celebrating this beloved spooky holiday, Crispy Fruit snacks make the quintessential treat for ghoulish gatherings, traditional trick-or-treating or even for those creative social distancing treat-sharing inventions you may have devised. Of course, check with the CDC for guidelines on practicing a safe Halloween to reduce any risks.
Why is Crispy Fruit from Crispy Green a Healthy Treat?
Simple answer, Crispy Fruit is 100% pure fruit, nothing else. Packaged in a single-serving pouch, with no added sugars, preservatives or scary artificial colors that you can find in many traditional Halloween treats. The best part is kids LOVE these crispy fruit slices that burst with flavor (so do adults!). Freeze-dried to the perfect crispy texture, Crispy Fruit literally snacks like a chip. With eight delicious options to choose from (apple, banana, cantaloupe, mango, pear, pineapple, strawberry and tangerine), even the pickiest little monsters will find a flavor they love!
Crispy Green, the makers of Crispy Fruit freeze-dried fruit snacks, is the #1 brand of freeze-dried fruit snacks at retail.* The company is passionate about Using Food As a Force For Good™ and recognizes that Halloween is the perfect time to promote their 100% pure fruit single-serve packs as a smart alternative to sugary candy treats!
