Pina coladas have frankly never held any appeal as a cocktail. So crazily sweet, so much richness, and who knows what kind of weird liquor is in it, right? I'd rather CHEW my pineapple and coconut, thank you very much. I'm doing that right now with a mouthful of Pineapple Paradiso fruit bites from those fruit leather geniuses at Nutty Goodness. Not only is this snack toothsome and satisfying but it hits all the tropical vacation notes you've been missing from that worn-down 80s tiki bar. Just be nice and share with your fellow travelers, please. ~
For the true, true stories behind this incredible foodstuff, read on.
Nothing says tropical vacation like a pina colada, right? Well, maybe. Perhaps the feeling we're hoping for is rather something fruity, sweet, and satisfying like the combination of pineapple and coconut, rather than an overpriced cocktail. This Pineapple Paradiso starts with pineapples to set a fragrant tone, then the flavors of mango and bananas merge with cashews, coconut, and lime to keep everything in check. These bites are the perfect middle ground between those gooey and too-sweet fruit bars and the crunchy nut bars pasted together with rice syrup. Nutty Goodness bars are toothsome - they satisfy that craving for chewy that is hard to satisfy on a real-foods lifestyle.
Here's what they have to say about this flavor: "Pineapple Paradiso is a more laid back variety of Nutty Goodness. He's a good listener, genuine, all-natural, and always extra sweet. Are you craving a sub-tropical fusion of nuts and pineapple? Don't freak out, bro. Just take a deep breath and kick it with your old friend, Mr. Paradiso."
All of the flavors of Nutty Goodness fruit leather explodes beyond what you thought possible in taste and texture, using all raw ingredients like dried fruit, nuts, and spices. I've had some pretty OK newfangled fruit leathers in recent years, but these from Nutty Goodness are amazing because you get the sweet chewiness and spices with the texture from big nut pieces suspended like jewels in each bite.
Why is Nutty Goodness not at all nutty? Let me count the ways:
- 100% Raw
- No fillers or junk
- 12 grams or less of natural sugars from dried fruits
- 100% Vegan
- No added sugars or sweeteners of any kind. No stevia, honey, high fructose corn syrup, agave nectar, cane juice, brown rice or maple syrups
- Take Back the Snack!
About Nutty Goodness
"Walker and Ben don’t live in the woods. They don't play hacky-sack and they didn’t invent Nutty Goodness (Their friend (Nicole) did.) They’re just two regular guys on a mission to "take back the snack." Now they want you to join the fight.
The way they see it, snacking has always been our ally in the fight against daily hunger, fatigue and really bad moods. You don't need an energy drink to boost morale or dominate your day. In fact, you shouldn't have to eat artificial anything, in order to crush your cravings and live a healthy lifestyle. You just need the right food to snack smart.
Nutty Goodness is a lot like Walker and Ben: sweet, natural, completely free of BS and a little bit nutty. It is (and will always be) made from nothing but fruit and nuts, without GMOs, wheat, dairy, gluten or any added sugars."
Nutty Goodness Pineapple Paradiso's Healthy ingredients
Organic Dried Mangos and Bananas
Organic mangos and bananas are the main source of sweetness in these bars, and a natural preservative and source of awesome chewiness, not to mention Vitamin A from those lovely yellow mangos.
Bananas are of course high in potassium and just mellow flavor, serving as a perfectly healthy backdrop without the need for added sugars.
Pineapple is high in vitamin C, dietary fiber, and manganese, an important mineral for the body's muscle tone and nerve and bone health. It also contains the enzyme bromelain, which breaks down protein and may aid in digestion and even help the body heal.
