Today’s post is on a new product I’ve never tried before. I saw these at the checkout line and thought they would be good. I like most other dried fruit I’ve bought at TJ’s. I especially love there Dried Bing Cherries. However, these were somewhat of a disappointment. They aren’t what I would classify as really soft or juicy. I also find some of them lacking flavor. The more I eat the more my feelings are mixed. Some are way softer than others and some have more flavor. But I would not call any of them so far as juicy.
I don’t think I will eat these as a snack by themselves but I do have some good ideas to use them so they won’t go to waste.
- Chop into smaller pieces and add to cereal
- Dip in chocolate (I might do this around Christmas)
- Add to salad ( would suggest cutting them in halves)
- Add to trail mixes
Ingredients: mandarin orange segments, sugar, sulfur dioxide (for freshness) Product of Thailand
I’m not saying these are bad, just not my preference among other TJ dried fruit options.
