Fuji Apple Slices
These truly make a great snack for any time. Super convenient to toss in a lunch box or just munch straight out of the can standing in your kitchen.
Just beware, if you’re not going to eat them pretty quick (like within a couple to a few weeks) or if the lid isn’t secure, they will get kind of chewy.
In fact, I like these apple slices so much they earned a spot on my top 12 freeze dried favorites list.
However, I will say…I think I like the cinnamon apple slices even better! It’s a toss up…
These are pretty dang good. I actually think they’re good straight out of the can. Have you ever had a Cup O Noodle? You know how there are always a couple peas at the top? That’s exactly what these are: freeze dried peas.
They’re great straight from the can, they’re great cooked in a meal (like chicken pot pie), and they’re great reconstituted and heated up as a side of vegetables.
By now, I think I’ve made it clear that I am not a fan of anything other than freshly cooked chicken. This tastes like microwaved chicken to me when I reconstitute it. It makes sense – it’s not Thrive’s fault. It’s just the nature of cooking meat and then reheating it later. I don’t fault Thrive – just my picky taste buds.
BUT, most people think this tastes totally fine. So unless you’re a chicken snob like me, this would be a good addition to your food storage.
These are such a good way to add variety and flavor to a meal. Great to cook with or toss in a salad.
If you love green onions, then definitely grab these while they’re in stock. They don’t tend to be around for long.
Crunchy and sweet. What’s not to love?
The only problem is, there’s no hiding the fact that you’ve been snacking on them. After a handful of these, your tongue, teeth, and lips will be a beautiful shade of deep blueish-purpleish-blackish. But don’t worry- that’s all natural color right there. Wanna know how I know?
There’s one ingredient in this can: blueberries.
25 year shelf life.
I personally get the blueberries in the pantry can size, because I like them super fresh and crisp. This is one of those fruits that does get soft and chewy after being open for a few weeks, so if you’re not going to go through an entire number 10 can within a few weeks, I recommend ordering these in the pantry can size. It just depends on how quickly you’ll go through them.
This is another one of Thrive Life’s products that isn’t always hanging around, so if you are wanting to try it I’d go ahead and add to cart.
While I could definitely live without applesauce, my family is used to dipping our pork chops in applesauce. Since I store pulled pork as one of our proteins in our long-term food storage, I want to make sure I have a way to make applesauce!
**Note: you do need a blender to make this applesauce, so this is not a good option during a power outage.
I actually haven’t tried the mozzarella cheese, but I have tried the freeze dried cheddar cheese, and it’s awesome.
So even though I haven’t tried the mozzarella, I am going to assume it’s pretty similar to the cheddar, in that it reconstitutes and melts the same as the cheddar. I just haven’t tried it yet!
Although, I feel a lasagna trial run coming on….so stay tuned!
I wish I had some words for you here, but this just isn’t something that’s in my regular rotation so I haven’t tried it.
I’ve tried these in soup and also in a breakfast concoction of eggs, sausage crumbles, and potato dices, and they were great! I just don’t use diced potatoes very often in my cooking, so I don’t have very much experience with these. But the 2 things I have tried them in have been fabulous.
