Trader Joe's Does it Again--Freeze Dried Red Raspberries (Review)

As you know, I am addicted to freeze dried fruit.  Recently, Trader Joe's has started selling freeze dried raspberries.  When I first saw them, I snatched them right away.  However, I ended up putting them back because they are pricey.   So, I was very excited this weekend when my husband gave me a bag as part of my birthday goodies!


I didn't know quite what to expect when I opened the bag.  I have had freeze dried raspberries incorporated in cereal and granola before.  However, they tended to be mini broken-up pieces of raspberries rather than whole raspberries.  Trader Joe's Freeze Dried Raspberries, however, retained their form and were whole rather than in pieces.  The raspberries were also light and crunchy--not soggy.  They were tart--which I loved.  I enjoyed having them as a treat with my cereal.   Now, how to finance this new habit?
