Pineapple Jerky

Recently, I’ve been snacking on a lot of fruit. I think it’s because I deprived myself of fruit for an entire month at one point in my life (shocking, I know) and I’ve been making up for it by pigging out with any fruit I can get my hands on. Also, one of my coworkers thoughtfully brings me at least one piece of fruit everyday, which definitely adds to my fruit consumption. One thing that’s inconvenient about fruit is how fragile it is – I hate bringing bananas anywhere because they’re so fragile and smushy. Also, cutting up fruit and putting it in a baggie beforehand isn’t always a good idea because the fruit ends up being brown and soft by the time you’re ready to eat it. If you have any of these problems as well but you love fruit, you’ll have to check out my new find – pineapple jerky from The owner sent me some samples to try:


Now, I’m sure you’re wondering if there’s a difference between dried fruit and fruit jerky – I’m guessing it’s the fact that fruit jerky hasn’t been completely dried so it has a more chewy texture compared to dried fruit (when I used to dehydrate my own fruit, it always ended up being really crunchy because it was completely dried through.) I received 5 samples of the pineapple jerky and managed to eat three of them before having the opportunity to take a picture – these things are amazingly tasty! The only thing I wasn’t a fan of was the fact that they drizzle honey on the pineapple – it was a little sweet for my tastes, but I’m guessing most people won’t mind the added sugar. They’re really convenient to take anywhere because they come in single servings and if they were around when I was a kid, I would’ve begged my mom to add them to my lunchbag. You can find them at
