They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but we beg to differ. After all, who doesn’t love snacktime?

DRIED FRUIT
We love the healthy versatility of dried fruit. Eat it alone, throw it in yogurt or pair it with ice cream (guilty). Nuts.com offers up dried fruit for every taste bud. Checkout traditional picks like pineapples and cranberries, and be sure to sample lesser-known types like baobab, organic red dragon fruit or star fruit.

Freeze-dried strawberries fun fact: Savor the summer all year long with nothing but the best strawberries. Nuts.com adds nothing to these beauties to bring out their natural, healthy tastiness. And they’re super-portable, too!
