Fuji Apple Slices
If you’ve been around a while, then you know I really like these. Honestly, you can’t go wrong with pure apple slices. Crunchy and full of flavor, they’re great to pack in school lunches or to just grab a handful to snack on.
In fact, I like these apple slices so much they earned a spot on my top 12 freeze dried favorites list.
I have not had these in 10 years…
But, I do remember loving them. They’re exactly what you’d expect and full of flavor. These are not chewy like the dried ones you get at the grocery store. You know the ones – covered in sugar and chew, chew, chew.
Light, airy, crunchy – great fruit snack.
Not lacking in flavor at all! These are not my personal favorite, but it totally depends on your personal ripeness preference. I like my bananas with a healthy amount of green on them, so it makes sense that I wish they were a little less ripe-tasting.
Do not mistake these for banana chips. Banana chips are dehydrated and crunchy as all get-out. You’ve probably had banana chips in a trail mix at one point or another. These freeze-dried banana slices are very light and airy; still crunchy, but it’s the airy crunch that you get with all freeze-dried foods. So you still get a little crunch, but less chip-like. You can read through this post to learn more about the difference between dehydrated and freeze-dried foods.
When my daughter was younger, these were her favorite.
Who else reaches for the mushrooms and they’re black and slimy? It feels like every time I buy fresh mushrooms, they go bad before I get the chance to use them. Because of this, I use Thrive Life’s freeze dried mushrooms in my cooking instead of fresh mushrooms. Every single time.
They are so awesome to have on hand to just toss in a sauce. You can rehydrate first or if you’re putting them in a meal with liquid in it (like soup), just toss them right in.
Super convenient for every day and an awesome option to give you some variety in your food storage meals.
I just tried the freeze dried zucchini for the first time this month, and I’m sorry to say, I’m not a fan.
I ate it dry, straight out of the can, and that was great.
Then I rehydrated it and threw it in some pasta salad. It was a little squishy…like a foamy squishy. Sponge-y. That’s a better word for it! So a little bit of a weird texture when rehydrated. Some of that sponge-i-ness did go away when I cooked it with some spaghetti sauce.
But the real problem is the grain of sand sensation that you get when you eat it.
It literally tastes like there is a grain of sand in almost every bite. I am not sure what causes that with zucchini and not other foods, but it’s real. That’s a deal-breaker for me.
I’d much rather just sub in some broccoli, green beans, or peas, than deal with the sand.

This is another one of my absolute favorites to always have in my pantry and in my long term food storage.
I cannot remember the last time I bought an onion at the grocery store. These are sooooooo convenient to cook with on the regular!
If you know, you know.
Get this. You will not regret it. I’ve said it before, but it won’t hurt to repeat myself:
This is THE BEST milk powder. The End.
