Peeled Snacks Review and Giveaway



In New York City in 2004, Noha Waibsnaider founded Peeled Snacks when she noticed something missing from the world of snack foods. Store shelves were full of processed potato chips, corn syrup-filled candy, and energy bars made with too many mysterious ingredients. But you couldn't get anything healthy and tasty that made you feel good about snacking. So she set about to fix that problem.

Her solution? Three tasty and nourishing varieties of fruit & nut mixes that became Peeled Snacks. Peeled Snacks are made with ingredients that you recognize. Large, easy-to-eat pieces of fruit and nuts provide a natural source of vitamins, minerals and fiber - with NO added sugar or fat. The nuts are dry roasted and lightly salted. And for the chocolate lovers, we use the finest rich dark chocolate with 61% cacao in our Shock-olate variety.

At Peeled Snacks we know that food starts out delicious and nutritious, and it doesn't need some machine to improve it, or engineering to perfect it. We bring you food that's as close to its natural state as possible. So make snacking a satisfying part of your lifestyle by eating food as it was meant to be: peeled.


Peeled Snacks generously sent me a few types of their snacks to try. I received Cherry-go-round, pine-4-Pineapple, much-ado-about-Mango, Banan-a-peel, Apricot-a-lot, and Apple-2-the-core. The interesting thing about these snacks is they are actually just peeled fruit, not dried like most other fruit snacks. While it took a few bites for me to get used to it, I realized I quite like it! I'd have to say my favorites would be the Banan-a-peel and Apple-2-the-core. Yummy!

If you're interested in trying out Peeled Snacks but aren't ready to buy: you can hop on by your local Starbucks this Friday, February 26, for a free sample!
