229201229201B001942GAIA3N4VTNFPMTHEFJames Lin3431275523200More like rice cakes than dried chipsThe back of the bags state that they're 100% dried fruit, but they aren't like any dried fruit that I've had before. Each chip feels like a rice cake or rice cracker, with a light, puffy texture. This makes it really easy to eat a bag very quickly, which apparently contains 1.5 pears, 1.5 apples, or 1 banana and 4 strawberries, depending on which flavor you grab. The strawberries are pretty similar to the ones that you find in Special K with Strawberries, but they're even lighter.

I don't think they're terrible, but I can't say that I love them either. I'll finish my two boxes of 24 and probably won't be ordering these again.

229202229202B001942GAIA2URJVONAWYV6Dchristy6911322956800Made in China ~ all products!This product is MADE IN CHINA, it is on all the packages. If I could do less stars on this review I would. I wouldn't feed my dog food made in China so why would anyone want to eat this or give it to their children, I wouldn't use any product that was edible or could be absorbed through my skin that was made in China(and certainly not as a willing purchase from an American company touting themselves as "America's Leading Brand of Freeze Dried Fruit Snack"). run people, run!
229203229203B001942GAIA3R7RE5O61M112@homemom69312805344005 stars for taste, 0 for originI opted on a 3 for these, I think they are delicious and was enjoying them all the time along with giving them to my daughter until I realized the were made in china, regardless of where you stand on foreign made products you can't ignore the insane amount of recalls and health concerns that arise from products, including food items, produced there. So while I really enjoy the apples I won't be ordering again and only hope that Disney & the Brother's All Natural group change to producing these in the USA.
229204229204B001942GAIA1V2MZ54BLDV0OAndrew Barbieri "chili mom"2311334707200PRODUCT OF CHINAsome of the fruits are noted to be from china. in light of recent concerns r/t how fruits are raised/maintained...pesticides, etc... I'll take made in USA only.
229205229205B001942GAIA1BS2MGBMWZ10NK. Nevins0051350518400Amazing and addictiveI originally bought these with my 2 year old in mind, but they're so yummy that I eat most of them! They're a great, healthy snack that travels well!
229206229206B001942GAIA231V77QWJG1Q3cdhc0051350432000Brothers variety packThese chips are great. Both of my little ones love them so much I did the subscribe and save so we always have some in the house. Great product and taste
229207229207B001942GAIA109QNU99EJGYBRiles0011350259200AWFULThese may be good for you, but they taste absolutely terrible. I'm a huge fan of healthy food that is good for you, but these taste HORRIBLE. They taste very little like fruit and very much like sulfates and preservatives. I would return them if I could, they aren't even palatable. I tried to give them away for free and failed, the only way I might be able to choke these down would be in sugared oatmeal. Not even space food, just definitely not food.
229208229208B001942GAIA19SPYL37I7TC0XOXO JB0021348099200Eh...First of all, these are way overpriced. The individual packets hardly have any food in them. My son is 1 1/2 years old and 1 packet isn't enough of a snack for him; I have to give him two. Secondly, the strawberry-banana ones are very messy, particularly the strawberries. The strawberries left red traces all over my sons hands, mouth, and clothes. So bad that his skin stayed "stained" until I bathed him (didn't come off with baby wipes). He likes the apples.
229209229209B001942GAIA2KO6GFT5FSDS1Lisa M. Xu "a student"0031347753600Okay but small servingsI think fruit is generally a hassle to eat, but I love the taste. So I thought this product would be a good way to satisfy some of those sweet tooth cravings, in a semi-healthy way. They offer 3 sorts of flavors in this pack: asian pear, apples, and strawberry bananas.

Asian pear: My favorite! Very authentic taste and not too sweet.

Apples: Okay, slightly sweet and slightly tart. The texture wasn't that great though. Not that crisp and more like styrofoamy.

Strawberry and banana: Banana crisps are great, sweet and crunchy and the strawberry is just tangy.

The problem I had was not so much with the taste but the meager portion sizes in each bag. I'd say each contained literally only a handful of dried fruit and considering the packaging and cost, its not very environmentally or economically (for us anyways) friendly. I guess, for kids this would be a perfect but I need something with a little more substance.
229210229210B001942GAIALJ84C4KPJ255Tararaa0051346716800Best Snack for ToddlersI can't say enough good things about this product. We originally found individual bags of fruit crisps at our local supermarket, and were paying almost $2 a bag because my almost-two-year-old son loved them so much. What a find on Amazon, a pack of 24 for so cheap! We subscibed and saved.

Less mess and more portablt than fresh fruit, better than a "fruit snack" or salty snack, and easy for little ones to chew. Not enough strawberry and banana in the variety pack, we run out of them first, but my son loves all the flavors!!
229211229211B001942GAIAMXPD65PFMXOPJennaLee0041346112000Cripsy!The apple flavour is the best out this whole pack. The banana feels sort of bizarre. And the pear has no flavour what so ever.
229212229212B001942GAIA2KHT4N5D183HVsher0011345593600fruit crispi bought asian pear, peaches and fuji apple and was very disappointed.they had no flavor, just like eating cardboard. i have tried others and find kirkland from costco to be very good.
229213229213B001942GAIA2YC15RA98TJNWBarbara B. Fuller "Schnauzerlvr"0051341619200TastyThe dried fruit are very tasty. The individual pkgs are handy and convenient. Great for people on the go. I recommend this product.
229214229214B001942GAIAPOLJZJTBEQ47Debra Brail0011341187200Yeee-uckI got these snacks when I was searching for the Veggie Straws. They LOOKED tasty. However, I didn't care for the consistency. Since they are called "crisps" I assumed they would be crunchy...like chips. But instead they dissolve in your mouth...kind of like party mints. I cancelled my subscription and gave the packages that I had to someone else to try. Lesson learned.
229215229215B001942GAIA1PJFQRGBOHJYOfaith0051337731200Just what I wantedI was not sure what the product would taste like, since it had to be ordered, and I was looking for natural fruit that I could enjoy and would be like a "melt in your mouth" type of dried fruit. This product was EXCELLENT in what I was wanting and the taste was just as awsome, I would let anyone know that if they are looking for a dried fruit with all the natural taste of fruit, this is it. I have never had a problem with any orders from Amazon
229216229216B001942GAIA3TX3M1M2C9BQRJenMarie0840051336435200Great productThis is a great tasting healthy product, I would recommend to anyone looking for a all natural healthy snack. Would defenetly buy again.
229217229217B001942GAIA3UYP74SFO19XXTrae0011333584000StaleBased on the recommendation of my sister-in-law I ordered a couple of boxes of the Brothers-all-natural fruit crisps. I also ordered the Kirkland brand as well. I would have to say that I prefer the cheaper Kirkland brand over the more expensive Brothers brand. I am not sure if the Brothers brand is supposed to taste stale or not but at least two of the packages that I have tried have tasted stale and not crisp as advertised. The expiration date on the individual packages is 01-06-14 which leads me to believe that this brand either taste this way or I just got a bad batch. Nonetheless, I will stick with the Kirkland brand and just chalk this one up as a loss.
229218229218B001942GAIA3MXPEND4QTFEMrachel0051328572800yummmmThese snacks are delicious and good for you. Easy to grab a bag quickly and go. The flavors are great and low calorie.
229219229219B001942GAIA6HP4JBMZ7TBHCynthia S. Mcintosh0011317168000awfulnot at all whay I expected- was worse than foam when you put it in your mouth- will not buy again
229220229220B001942GAIA3TAB9FBIRP9ZBFoodie0051312761600Tasty crispy snacks!Just ordered these in hopes to add to my healthy snack alternatives and they are better than imagined! Great taste and texture and guilt-free. Even my husband was surprised how tasty these crisps are. Low in sugar and great ingredient list (truly just the fruit!) Great job!
229221229221B001942GAIA3IVP4JB933OSJS. Mina0041299196800Apple chips are good, strawberry/banana not so muchThese apple chips taste good and are good for you. My 19 month old loves them. She won't eat regular apples, but will eat these. The strawberry ones are very tart. I didn't like them. The banana chips are kind of hard. The pear chips were also good, just like the apples.
229222229222B001942GAIA1GO8C3I3WVSCHKinger71020041296345600Great SnackI really enjoy the Fuji apple and Asian Pear and each pouch is the equivalent of 1.5 pieces of fruit. Some pieces do get crushed, but the majority are good size pieces.

Personally, I do not like the strawberry/banana. The pieces are too small and there is an odd taste to them (The item lost its star for the strawberry/banana).

You do pay a premium, as compared to most fresh fruit, but you don't have to worry about the fruit going bad.

I recommend this pack to pick your favorite fruit and then order that one individually.
229223229223B001942GAIA23BG944Y7II4IHappy Shopper0051294963200my toddler loves it!my 3.5 yo toddler is a very picky eater. However, he loves the Apple and Pear dry fruits! He can eat 3 bags as snack.
229224229224B001942GAIA14MSTXUI8DOPIPeter Hanna "P-Tay"0051288569600Love theseThese fruit snacks are an excellent way to get fruit into your diet. I'm a diabetic and a one bag serving is about 8-10 grams of carbs and that is it. Because the carb count is so low, I do not need insulin and the effect on my blood sugar is negligable. I know a low of people are upset that these are made in China, but for my purposes, they could be made in Saskatchewan for all I care. I need the health benefit that the fruit provdies without all the carbs and if this works, I'll take it. I buy these from Costco for a slightly cheaper price than Amazon offers them for (but not much).
229225229225B001942GAIAE7TI315ZWVM1Low Tess0051286928000Great for lunchesThese snacks are individually wrapped and easy to put in lunches. My kids love them. The price is great too compared to other brands we have used in the past. A good "fruit" to have around and you don't have to worry about it spoiling.
229226229226B001942GAIA34O4XFM5CHEPIAmy "Amy"0051281916800Great SnackMy daughter really enjoys these healthy little snacks. They also do not make a mess, which is great for me.
229227229227B001942GAIARIUC7ERRKEMHA. Vitt "jougator"0051280707200Delicious, convenient and healthy snack!I ordered these freeze-dried snacks after I found a similar product in the grocery store and loved them. Unfortunately, at nearly $2 a bag at the store, it quickly became a luxury expense. I decided to try these from Amazon because they were considerably less expensive than the in-store brand, and had great ratings. I was not disappointed! These are fantastic little snacks that are neat, convenient and healthy. So easy to throw into my lunch bag or stash in my car on long trips. I love the strawberry-banana and the apple flavors. You can really see and taste the quality of the fruits they use. These little 40-calorie bags will absolutely be replacing my afternoon potato chip habit, at a FRACTION of the calories. If you're hesitant about trying these -- don't be! These are a new staple in my household.
229228229228B001942GAIA2RV7J9ZBQVVF6Snehanshu Shah "whizdog"0051280188800Love the product - Amazon is too expensiveAwesome Chips

Wish Amazon weren't this expensive. You can get the Variety 24 back for about $13 from Costco.
229229229229B001942GAIAQEB47T0DCYY3jean marie padden0041280016000Excellent fruit serving optionWhen heat and humidity wreak havoc on fresh fruit and you must spend a day outdoors, these snacks really fit the bill! My children love to take them to summer camp (and pack them for school lunches!); when they eat together, they share pieces of the different fruits to experience a crispy "fruit salad"
229230229230B001942GAIA3D9JMHDFZT3INangel0051279065600Brothers all natural snacksThese are great snacks for the everyone. They taste great! they are great to have in your purse and kids love them.
