School Lunch the Bane of my Existence

I was given products in this post for the purpose of review.  I was not paid to write this review.  All opinions are my own.

School Lunch the Bane of my Existence

Monday I am up at 6am get Brandon ready for school, make his lunch, come back home and get Quinn ready for preschool.  I come home clean, go get Quinn, make lunch, run into town.  Come home get Brandon off the bus, make dinner, do homework, do dishes, get both boys ready for soccer.  Go to soccer, come home get them in the tub, read a story and get them into bed.
This is Monday, Wednesday and Thursday.
Plus Thursday is Trash night, Saturday we have soccer games and my family comes over for dinner.
Some mornings I just don't feel like getting up right at 6am.  So I hit snooze... TWICE and I am so behind.
I frantically try to whip a lunch together that is healthy and tasty and I know some days I fail.  And I fail horribly.
There isn't a lot of "quick" and healthy choices."  Normally if I want health I have to spend a few minutes cutting up fruit, washing it and then packing it.
Well no more!  I just discovered Crispy Green


An easy and affordable solution is Crispy Fruit from Crispy Green, 100% freeze-drying fresh fruit into delectable, crispy bits of deliciousness that your kids can’t get enough of! 
(Or adults for that matter.) 
These 100% natural products are even Non-GMO Project Verified! 

What is Crispy Fruit? Simply put, it’s 100% pure fruit freeze-dried in perfect slices that can satisfy a snack attack anytime, anywhere! Crispy Fruit comes in a variety of flavors including Tangerine, Apple, Asian Pear, Banana, Cantaloupe, Mango and Pineapple. The freeze-drying process results in a light crispy texture that snacks like a chip, but has all the nutrients of fresh fruit. Crispy Fruit comes in individual, single-serving packets that are easy to pop into lunchboxes, soccer bags, overnight totes and backpacks.

My review:
The Crispy Greens are freeze dried so I thought they would be "overly" dried out.  But they weren't!  There was actually a really nice texture.  They almost melt in your mouth!  They are in the middle between soft and hard.  
The taste was also awesome, you still have all that fruity goodness without the excess juice.
I thought freeze drying would take some of the flavor away, but it seems more potent. 
I have a 4 year old and the pieces were perfect bite size for him.  I could see these being a great snack not only for big kids, but also for toddlers too.
The low calories, there is no preservatives or additives which makes them a great snacks for parents too.
