Here’s the deal, fruit roll-up.
We’re onto you and your pals, preservatives and additives. They’re bad news. Plus they’re hard to spell and even harder to pronounce.
Little Duck Organics Tiny Fruits, on the other hand, have ingredients that read like a worksheet for first-graders: organic freeze-dried apples, organic freeze-dried blueberries, organic freeze-dried strawberries. Get the picture? Nothing but familiar good stuff in bite-size pieces.
We’re not partial to hydrogenated anything. The only syrup we want is from a maple tree. So make room in the snack drawer.
And do us a favor. Mind your own beeswax.
