Fit for Fun Balance-Fruits
HK$44.90 for 150 grams, Great
The fruits were dried but certainly not dehydrated, with plump apricot pieces, moist banana wedges, tender dates and prunes and soft apple slices. The only negative is it uses sulphur dioxide as a preservative, which could cause reactions in those with cardiovascular or respiratory problems.
Verdict: a good pre-workout snack.
Nature's Sensation Dried Strawberries
HK$49.90 for 127 grams, Great
Hailing from Thailand, this product contains no preservatives, only strawberries and sugar. The bite-sized pieces had just the right moistness and sweetness, and were a pleasant chew.
Verdict: lacks the refreshing juiciness of fresh fruit, but otherwise a convenient snack.
Forest Feast Fantastic Physalis
HK$19.90 for 80 grams, Great
I often see the fresh version of this fruit - also known as the cape gooseberry - on cakes as decoration, and it usually isn't very palatable. This dried version makes it edible.
Verdict: a tad too dry and tart for my liking.
