Best Dried Fruits

Dried fruit is a healthy food that’s easy to take anywhere for a snack on the go. Dried fruit is also versatile since you can add it to foods like yogurt or oatmeal, bake with it, or even add it to smoothies. When shopping for dried fruits, consider whether you want one type of fruit or a medley, if it needs to be kosher or vegan, or should be free of additives. Here are our top dried fruit picks that we’re excited for you to try!
