Styrofoam Apple Slices: They're Actually Pretty Good.

Have you seen these?



A coworker of mine purchased them for the office. And in my bear-like starving stupor, I decided to try them out.

According to the package, they're:
"Fuji apple slices with cinnamon"
-and-
"100% real fruit"
Which is usually not my style, so I was pretty skeptical that it would be settle my rage-a-holic hunger.

But surprisingly, they were really pretty good.

Just like the package states, it's just fruit. There's no fireworks or laser beams inside. And the texture is a lot like what I imagine styrofoam to be like if I were to eat it. It's light as air. Also, within a few seconds of putting it in your mouth, the consistency changes to a marshmallowy blob. (Is that how all freeze-dried food is? It's kind of cool at first, but I can't imagine being able to fill up on this stuff. Astronauts must starve when they're in outer space.)



I know I'm doing a horrible job at selling these things, but it's not like Kirkland is paying me or anything. You'll just have to trust me when I say that I actually DID like them.

Has anyone else tried these? What did you think of them?

Boner'ppetite.

I like that kind of thing. I buy dried apple rings from Trader Joe's, mmm so good. There's just something magical about dehydrated fruit.

So I've never tried those persay, but I adore dehydrated pineapple. oh and mango. Oh and bananas. Mmmm, dried out fruit.

I really thought this post was going to end with an "LOL. JAYKAY." sort of thing. I've never tried them, but I might, because I am now imagining that they are like the Cheetos of fruit.

TSARITSA and KIM - These aren't like dehydrated fruit. Since they're freeze-dried (really, think of styrofoam), all the life has been sucked out of it and all that's left is something like dusty cotton candy. Only it tastes like apple flavored air.

You just have to try it. :)

LORRAINE - Yes! You hit the nail on the head with the "Cheetos of fruit" line!!

RIOT - lolbarflol.

SIMONE - I'm not really an apple eater. So this is close enough for me. (I have a feeling you're much healthier than me.)
