Kirbie’s Munchies- Healthy, Sweet Dried Pineapple Rings

I like eating dried fruit, especially the chewy ones.  Unfortunately, most dried fruit is made with so much sugar, that it is not really healthy and doesn't taste much like the original fruit.  Enter Trader Joe's.  You can find Trader Joe's locations here. Trader Joe's has a whole section of dried fruit, most of them with no sugar added. Just pure, natural, dried fruit, creating a healthy, and yummy snack.  One of my favorites are the dried pineapple rings.

Because pineapples tend to be very sweet, dried pineapples are sweet even without any sugar added.  Unlike the typical dried pineapple that you often find in trail mixes, pineapple rings dried without other added ingredients are very chewy tasting, almost like a jerky texture.

As you can see by the ingredients, not only are these pineapple rings tasty, but they are healthy too, allowing you to enjoy a guilt free snack:

So next time you are in the mood for snacking and don't want to feel guilty for eating too much junk, perhaps you may want to pick up a package of dried pineapple rings from Trader Joe's.
