Matt’s Munchies

by Anne Paddock

Ever wonder why fruit roll-ups/leathers can’t be made with fruit and natural ingredients? Chef Roberts did and decided to create healthy, organic, gluten-free, vegan certified, and kosher fruit leathers without artificial additives, colors, and preservatives. How you ask? By using organic great tasting fresh fruit to make flavorful squares of pure dehydrated mango, banana, and apricot puree.

Each 1-ounce packet of Matt’s Munchies contains 16 small square pieces of fruit leather on a piece of folded parchment paper which encourages the snacker to enjoy the fruit by peeling each piece off as opposed to rolling up one piece and gobbling it all up (makes for less sticky hands).  The design also encourages kids (and adults) to easily share the individual pieces of pureed fruit as everyone loves to peel off their own individual square.

Each of the fruit packets contain 35-40 calories and about 8 grams of sugar. The three fruit packets that contain semi-sweet chocolate have 70-80 calories and 13 grams of sugar.  Fun, nutritious, and delicious, Matt’s Munchies are the go-to snack when craving something sweet and sensational.
