Peeled Snacks and family fun

Last night was one of the best nights! All the kids came over for a pizza night. I love these nights. We all get to make our own pizzas and everyone pitches in to help! So, we were all in the kitchen working on the pizzas and I told the kids I had a new snack to try. Peeled Snacks. You should have seen their faces. The raced to the pantry to get them out. ( My kids are 18, 20 and 24!!) I loved it that they got so excited over dried fruit. They pulled them out of the pantry and started a taste test!

Peeled Snacks are a natural source of vitamins and fiber, completely dairy, wheat and gluten free. They are just dried fruit! They are also low in calories. The whole bag contains 110 - 150 calories! Just perfect for a quick snack!

They LOVED the apple, pineapple and mango. Cherry and apricot got a lot of votes and banana wasn't the best according to them. I liked them all. They finished off just about all of them. I had to laugh, when they were smaller it was hard to get them to even try something new! Now, they can't wait to see what I have hanging around!!

Peeled Snacks have no added sugar, oil, preservatives or other fillers, so it is real food! I love that!

I wanted to get a picture of the snacks, but they were gone before I could get the camera out. I was planning on taking a picture of the aftermath, but it was just a bit embarrassing :)

I did take a picture of the favorite pizza of the night - TACO PIZZA! I used morningstar farms crumbles seasoned with taco meat, a little tomato sauce and Sheese (whole post devoted to them soon!), piled on some lettuce, tomato and black olives. Some of us put salsa on the top, some didn't! It was really tasty!

Be sure to pick up some Peeled Snacks to have on hand. The kids love them and so will you! After you have enjoyed your snack, you can send in your empty bags and Peeled Snacks will process them and recycle them. Because the bags are double layered to preserve the freshness of the fruit, the layers have to be seperated before recycling.

Become a fan of peeled snacks on facebook!
