How do you take your fruit? Sensible, like apples? Trendy, like berries? How about seriously fancy and a bit exotic, just like your modern-day taste buds? Well, ok, then. Have we got the flavor for you, bursting with spicy ginger and sultry mango and a dash of lemony pucker: Snappy Ginger Fruit Bites. These ain't your kiddo's fruit roll-ups. Each triangle-shaped fruit raft is your vessel to the tropics in one chewy bite of mango, ginger, lemon, and dates. Prepare to escape snacking as you knew it. ~
For the true, true stories behind this incredible foodstuff, read on.
Nuts are good. We already know this. Why have some fruity company repeat the message yet again? Well, because this fruity company called Nutty Goodness has the most delectable take on fruit leather that I've tasted in years. It's a soft, chewy, utterly delicious fruit snack that will satiate as well as make you salivate.
The fiery and peppy Snappy Ginger flavor is a potent recipe with exotic fruits and balancing zest. It starts with dates to set a mellow tone, then the flavors of mango and ginger merge with lemon to keep everything in check. For added texture the almond chunks are there to keep your mouth happy. 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: "Nutty Goodness Snappy Ginger is not for those who just kinda like ginger. If you aren't ready to have your mind blown by this barrage of mangos, dates, almonds and zesty ginger, then maybe this isn't the flavor for you. Your call, but you've been warned. Made with all natural organic ingredients and nothing else!"
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 Snappy Ginger's Healthy ingredients
Organic Dried Mangos and Dates
Organic mangos and dates 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.
The lemons kick in some tartness and color (not to mention antioxidants galore), while the dates are vitamin and mineral-rich — they’re particularly high in iron and vitamin K.
Ginger, not just a lovely and warming spice that can soothe your tummy, is also a potent anti-inflammatory. Ginger contains very potent compounds called gingerols. These substances are believed to explain why so many people with osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis experience reductions in their pain levels and improvements in their mobility when they consume ginger regularly.
