Freeze-dried pieces of real fruit are “like the marshmallows in Lucky Charms, but full of good-for-you nutrients like potassium,” says a tester who mixed the nuggets into hot cereal.
The new (and affordable) half-ounce bags are perfect for everyday treks and available in some single fruit flavors (raspberry, strawberry, banana) and a fruit salad blend that’s reminiscent of the canned fruit-cocktail kids’ snack. Note: Pack freeze-dried fruit on top of your pack; it’s fragile and can turn to dust. $1 (1 serving); .7 oz.; justtomatoes.com
