Trader Joe’s Freeze Dried Strawberries are strawberry slices that have undergone a special freeze-drying process so they remain extremely flavorful—but unlike so many conventionally dried berries, they’re free of added sugar and they pack a bit of a crunch. We’ve discovered that kids find them not only delicious, but fascinating as well.
And lest you think they’re only for kids, we’ll go on record as grown-up fans of these crunchy little berries. They’re delightful added to cereals, and given their history as a backpacking staple, they’re perfectly at home on the trail as part of a mix or on their own.
Trader Joe’s Freeze Dried Strawberries come in a 1.2-ounce resealable bag, which may not sound like much, however it takes ten times that amount (12 ounces) of ripe strawberries from California’s coastal growing regions to produce this much freeze dried fruit! We recommend that you keep the bag tightly sealed after opening to preserve the crunch, though in the spirit of full disclosure, we’ll admit they don’t usually last long enough that this ever becomes an issue.
