Review: New Zealand Apple Products

The selection of products available from New Zealand Apple Products are definitely the pick of the bunch.

New Zealand Apple Products use amazing processes to create a range of convenient and enticing fruit-based snack products.

  • Made with New Zealand fruit
  • Gluten-free
  • No sulphites, preservatives, additives, or artificial flavour
  • No added sugar
  • 100% natural

The New Zealand Apple Products range includes Freeze-Dried, Air Dried, and Pouch options. I put a selection of products to the test in my busy family kitchen.

Apple Chips & Apple Rings

How often do you pop a nice crispy apple into the school lunch box only to open it later that afternoon and find that the kid has taken two bites out of it! Been there, done that, right? Apple Chips and Apple Rings are the ideal solution.

Apple Rings are made with 100% baked apples and have a wonderfully sweet, moreish texture. Apple Chips have that little bit of crunch that everyone loves from a packet of chippies – with none of the guilt! Lunch box or snack portioning is easy as these nibbles keep for ages, even after the bag has been opened.

Fruit Noodles

New Zealand Apple Products havea  fruit leather range in three flavours: Apple, Boysenberry & Apple, or Blackcurrant & Apple. Made with 100% fruit and shaped into flat little noodles, this is an easy way to add fruit to the lunch boxes or to pop into a container for an on-the-go snack. They’re tangy and chewy and you have to stop yourself from eating the whole bag in one go!


Fruit Hitz Pouches

These were the biggest hit in our house – with both the kids and the adults! Available as Apple Sauce, Baby Fruit Purées or Fruit Flavoured Purées, these are the perfect snack size and are so simple to throw in a lunch box or sports bag for a post-match snack.

The Apple Sauce was an inspired ingredient in my apple and banana loaf, keeping it wonderfully moist.

The Fruit Flavoured Purées come in four flavours – these are smooth and oh so good! The Mango and Strawberry flavours were absolutely delicious and the Summer Berry was beautifully refreshing. We resisted the urge to scoff the Tropical flavour just long enough to pour it over cookies and cream ice-cream for dessert heaven.


Fruit Medley

The freeze dried Fruit Medley is a mixture of apples, gold kiwifruit, strawberries, blueberries, and boysenberries. The tang takes a little getting used to but this is a selection that would go well on a grazing table or party platter. Team them with a cool natural yoghurt dip for the perfect combination. I like that the bag is reasalable for sneaky snacking!
