Since turning vegan my biggest challenge has been finding foods to fill the void that milk chocolate has left. There’s no question that I have a sweet tooth and with Malteasers no longer an option, I’ve been on the hunt for alternatives.
Whilst browsing the cooking aisle in Tescos I came across the Snack Organisation’s Freeze-Dried Strawberries and thought, hey presto, let’s give those a try.
About Snack Organisation
From what I can tell Snack Organisation is a fairly new UK company. I had never heard of them before I saw their freeze-dried strawberries sitting on the shelf in Tesco, but their product range is larger than freeze-dried fruit, they also produce crunchy flavoured rice crackers.
What freeze-dried products do they have?
If you’re in the mood for freeze-dried fruit you’ve got three options
- Strawberries (yummy)
I’ve only tried the strawberries which were surprisingly chunky and durable considering they’d travelled at the bottom of my bag under a laptop and not turned to powder. I did enjoy eating these in the afternoon and was not phased by the slightly pink hue my fingers turned as I tried to get every last crumb out of the 18g bag. So small. Too small. Wanted more.
Where can you buy them and at what price?
At £1 for an 18g bag they’re not cheap, but they are sweet, crunchy and gave me the pick me up I needed at 3pm in the office.
You can buy them at Tesco or on their website here.
I’d buy these again as a treat, but they won’t be making a regular occurrence in my lunch box due to the price tag. You can definitely get better value for money from other snacks than these babies, so it is a yay but not a yay for every day.
Have you tried any of the Snack Organisations products?
