“Eating plenty of fruits and vegetables is a cornerstone of good health,” says Angela Liu, President and Founder of Crispy Green. “Yet, over 80 percent of Americans do not consume enough fruits and vegetables in their daily meals. If we could substitute some of our snacks with a variety of fruits, particularly those that do not contain additives or preservatives, it would help increasing our daily fruit intake while satisfying our snacking habits."


Available in six delicious flavors, Crispy Fruit comes in single-serving bags (MSRP: $1.49 each) that provide approximately one serving of fruit and 55 calories or less per bag. FruitziO, which boasts five great-tasting flavors with a hint of added cane sugar, has 2.5 servings per bag and only 100 calories for the entire bag (MSRP: $3.49). Crispy Fruit and FruitziO are the perfect portable healthy snack, combining the mess-free convenience of a bag of chips with nutritious value and the delicious taste of real fruit.


In addition to single-serving bags, Crispy Fruit is available in the handy "Grab & Go" 6-PACK – six single serving bags in one convenient multi-bag (MSRP: $7.99).
