Oh Brother(s)!

When the Brothers Company asked if I’d like to sample some of their freeze-dried fruit crisps, I jumped at the chance. Here’s a look at what came in the package:

(From top left: Asian Pear, White-and-Yellow Peach, Strawberry-Banana, Strawberry, Fuji Apple, Pineapple)

  • Each bag of fruit crisps has around 30-70 calories and no added sugar, preservatives, or artificial coloring.
  • Depending on the variety, the fruit crisps have one to two grams of fiber per bag
  • One bag of Brothers-All-Natural Fruit Crisps provides the equivalent of two servings of fruit.
  • All varieties are peanut/tree nut free, gluten free, soy free, dairy free, vegan, and kosher certified.
  • Plus, the bags are portable, they’re mess-free, and they stay fresh for up to 1 year.

Below, some freeze-dried snacking:

    I just saw Heather’s concoction and it looked awesome 🙂

    I wore capris today! Yayyyy for a hint of spring!

    I’m getting excited for the pumpkin recipe… I have a can sitting in the fridge that i need to use up.

    I’ve had those before! I love them!

    Mmm, love the whole wheat wrap and the pudding. Yours always looks so creamy, I’m jealous. I still haven’t been able to master the technique. My puddings always have pieces of agar in it =(

  3. Kiersten says

    I love those crisps. I eat the apple and pear ones all the time. I have never seen the other ones yet though, I’d love to try those.

    (Great song choice today)

    So you could eat these in space? Hmmmm I don’t know if I’d want to eat space food on Earth. I guess I just don’t get it! I’m the kind of person who would much rather just eat some fruit. Wasn’t there a Seinfeld episode about that? haha

  5. Marianne says

    Thanks for the shout out! I did quite enjoy my blended oatmeal. Next on my list – something savoy to go with dinner one night.

    Those peach ones look awesome. I would so dive into that one right away!

  6. Kiki says

    Aw, thank you Katie! It’s such an honor to get a shout out from a blogger as wonderful as you :]

    I saw those fruit crisps in a random snack shop recently, I should have bought some! I’ll keep an eye out for them. Hope you had a great day!

  7. River says

    You had me at crispity-crunchy! I’ve never seen those around here but I’ll look for them on the road.

    We went to Whole Foods today and guess what I bought? Silken tofu! I am slowly conquering my fears towards making your yogurtlicious yummies. It’s staring at me from the kitchen, so it is a little intimidating.

    Those look great! I’d love to try those, I have seen them in stores, but might have to check them out! Thanks for the review!

    Thanks for the shout out Katie. Can’t wait for the pumpkin recipe…I’m sure you’ll be seeing it on my blog soon. 🙂

    Love you and all your eats!

    Thanks for the review. Those freeze dried fruits would be great to pack for trips. Always looking for airport security friendly portable snacks.

  10. ChickPea says

    Ooh! I had no idea those crisps came in so many flavors! I think I have tried just the strawberry banana and apple varieties.

  11. Kailey (SnackFace) says

    I love those crisps! I’ve only had apple, but they were delish! I didn’t think they were filling in the slightest, but maybe I just needed to combine them with other things like you did! Pumpkin pudding-hello,lover!!

  12. Amey says

    well gosh darn it, those look just great! I’d love to try them. Asian pear sounds great. yumola. Now, maybe some of these companies should just send me some goodies to review! I wouldn’t mind at all.

  13. Elle says

    PEACH oooohhh my goodness peach rings were the love of my childhood. will definitely be looking for these! 🙂
    enjoy the weather! it started snowing again tonight… sigh.


  14. Sarah (lovINmytummy) says

    My girls love those CRISPS. They got us through about 4 weddings this summer.

    I cannot wait to see what this pumpkin pudding is all about!

  15. Sarah W. says

    thanks for your review on the fruit chips! I heard Costco has a big bag of the fuji apple variety! i will have to make sure those make it into my mother in laws basket when we do shopping before our summer beach trip! hehehe. ok, its a few months off, sue me – I’m stille xcited

  16. Lauren says

    I’ve bought those crisps at Cotcos before, they are super yummy!! I had the apple and the strawberry banana, yum! I need to check out the other flavors!

    P.S. How do you get all this free stuff?

  17. coconutgal says

    ohh Yum!! I think I can pretty much guess how to make your Asian Pear with Pumpkin-Pie Pudding (it involves blending!), but please do post the recipe, it sounds tasty 🙂
