Fairfield, N.J. – January 7, 2008 – Crispy Green Inc., the maker of Crispy Green® Crispy Fruit premium, freeze-dried fruit snacks, today announced the launch of Crispy Pears, the newest addition to Crispy Green’s all-natural, innovative line of Crispy Fruit snack food offerings.
Crispy Pear fruit snacks are made of 100% high-quality, freeze-dried Asian pears. These all-natural snacks contain no added sugar, preservatives, colors, flavors, fat or cholesterol and have been certified kosher-parve by Shatz Kosher Services.
Each .36-ounce, single-serving size of Crispy Pears contains approximately a half-cup of Asian pears and is less than 39 calories. Unlike traditional dried fruit, Crispy Pears have a light and crunchy taste and the product’s portability and long shelf life make Crispy Pears the smart choice for consumers who are seeking a healthy snack alternative to traditional snack foods.
“A good snack maintains the delicate balance between taste and nutrition. Crispy Green’s Crispy Pears and its Crispy Fruit product line provides the best of both worlds for anyone who wants a great tasting snack while maintaining a healthy lifestyle,” says Angela Liu, President and Founder of Crispy Green. “Everyone loves the convenience and portability of our Crispy Fruit snacks and that it provides a fun and creative way to add more fruit to the daily diet. Our ‘Grab and Go’ 6-PACKs make it easy for consumers to have a healthy, delicious fresh fruit snack at their fingertips – at anytime.”
Quality is Crispy Green’s obsession and Crispy Pears are manufactured using only the highest quality fresh fruit sourced from certified growers at their peak of freshness. A sophisticated freeze-drying process leaves behind the true essence of the fruit in a light and crispy texture that is perfect for snacking.
Crispy Pears are available in both a single-serving size and the handy ‘Grab & Go’ 6-PACKs, which contain six single-serving bags in one convenient package.
