Dole Packaged Foods, LLC has unveiled Good Crunch, a sustainably-made dried fruit snack.
The product uses a gentle dehydration process that locks in fresh fruit flavor and preserves nutrients for a light and airy snack, according to the company. Unused pieces of fruit are upcycled into organic fertilizers to reduce food waste as well.
“We’re thrilled to be adding Good Crunch to our portfolio of innovative fruit snacks,” says Orzse Hodi, senior vice-president and managing director, Americas, Dole Packaged Foods. “Crunchy snacks are often associated with being unhealthy, but we’re looking to change that perception with Good Crunch. We encourage consumers to confidently re-think snacking with this nutritious, crunchy alternative.”
Good Crunch is made using all-natural, non-GMO fruits and no artificial flavors, colors, preservatives, or added sugar or oil. It packs in 1.4- and 2.5-ounce reclosable pouches and has an SRP of $3.99. Flavors include original pineapple bites, pineapple bites with chili and banana bites.
