Giveaway: Freeze Dried Strawberries!



Woo Hoo, I had to pry this can away from my children and barely got it before they opened it! 

Below is all the technical stuff, but all I really know is that I have found at least 438 different ways to eat these in the past month. I LOVE them!

THRIVE Freeze Dried Strawberries will have you snacking and munching the healthy way. GMO-free and a strong source of vitamin C, our strawberries are cut length-wise and then freeze dried. This makes them perfect and lovely in anything from your morning cereal to parfaits or decorative cakes.
Freeze dried strawberries retain almost all of their original taste, nutrition, and color, whereas dehydrated strawberries tend to lose these things. With 45 servings in each #10 can and an optimum shelf life of 25 years, this favorite fruit is a perfect match for your long-term food storage. Whether eaten from the can or rehydrated with a little water or the juice of your choice, THRIVE Freeze Dried Strawberries are an economical and delicious addition to your food storage system!

  2. My Grandmother used to make angel food cake for Easter. It's really a dessert that reminds me of Spring too. Sliced strawberries in a yummy sauce over angel food cake - and if you were REALLY wanting a treat, you topped it with whipped cream or vanilla bean ice cream. ME: I'm simple. I like mine straight up. I read about this "food storage" concept, and I'm quite intrigued...but there are no consultants around! Any advice?

  5. Nicole,

    I would love to help you find one in your area. If there isn't one close by I would love to help you or talk to you by phone. It is such a new company that they are not consultants in some area, but that is really good for you if you want to be one! You would get all the referrals from others like you!
    Email me anytime and I will answer any questions you have!

  64. I really like layering fresh sliced strawberries inbetween frosting and cake for a little surprise in the middle. Im curious how freeze dried strawberries would taste. Do you have to soak them in water to eat them or are they like dried banana chips?
