We received the apple chips and the apple rings and my son who is 18 months loved them both especially the apple chips. He would have eaten them all if I had let him!
We received the Fruit Noodles and the Fruit Medley. My son (4) really liked both. He liked the variety in the medley, but it was about the noodles that he immediately said ‘can I have some more?’
We received the fruit medley and the Fruit Kitz mango ones. My son loved it! Great variety of fruit. The dried fruit are delicious. I had some too. Love how it has no added sugar, preservatives, additives or sulphites. Also great how it is NZ made. Great for lunchboxes for the kids and even for me for work.
Wow! was the first word my 2 year old after trying the freeze dried mixed berry. She loves it so much we had it as a snack, in our yogurt, with our pancakes and smoothies. We all loved it so much. second product was apple fruit noodle, it tastes great but i would say it’s a bit on a chewy side for a 2 year old otherwise amazing taste not to sweet.
We received the Dried Freeze Kiwi Fruit & the Apple Fruit Noodles, We loved the Kiwi Fruit the best, It has that yummy sweet & sour taste. And makes a great snack for anytime.
I loved the Apple Rings and would definitely buy these again as they are delicious and versatile – I can think of many ways to use them in baking, as well as with breakfast or as a snack. I had a few on some peanut butter toast – delicious!
We received the apple and berry fruit hitz and I gave it to my 17month old and snuck a taste first. It was so delicious I had to use good self control not to finish it for her! She loved it and downed it sooo fast. It suggested on the packet to freeze and pop in a lunch box and that is a brilliant idea. It would be sooo tasty and definitely something my older children would really enjoy.
My kids absolutely love the Tropical flavoured Fruit Hitz. My 1 year old daughter, couldn’t get enough, she devoured it. My 10 year old son absolutely loved them too. He asked if we can buy them all the time. The puree texture was fantastic, it had the perfect balance of all the different tropical fruits and it was not too sweet. We will definitely be buying them again and again.
