I can definitely admit that I love snackin’. I’m not one for large meals, I am more so an apple & peanut butter or avocado toast midday snack kinda gal. But lately I have been hooked on Watermelon Road.
And before you get any further I just want to point out, this isn’t an ad. I am not being paid to say any of this. Rather, they sent me some samples and I’m ready to place a lifetime order. It’s that good.
So what are they? Watermelon Road are dried fruit jerkies that are 100% plant based. The product has no refined sugars, no preservatives, vegan friendly, soy free, dairy free, gluten free, paleo friendly and the Pineapple Mojito and Watermelon Lemonade flavors are both Whole30 compliant. #WINNING
They are made by hand slicing fresh fruits, marinating them in citrus (which preserves naturally and adds flabor), and then they are gently dehydrated at a low temperature. The end result is a slightly chewy, jerky-like fruit snack that’s SO healthy and delicious.
So basically – remember those fruit snacks your mom would put in your lunch box? Yep – they taste better than THAT!
