Ocean Spray Dried Fruit Flavor Varieties
The great taste of Ocean Spray Dried Fruit is sure to appeal to adults and kids who are looking for a healthy way to satisfy a sweet tooth.
Ocean Spray offers three different types of dried fruit snacks:
- Ocean Spray Dried Cherries – Out of the three varieties, these are my favorite. They’re hard to describe, but absolutely delicious. They have the perfect balance of sweet and sour and will be on my grocery shopping list on a regular basis. This flavor is sold in a five ounce package.
- Ocean Spray Jumbo Dried Cranberries – If you like cranberries, you’ll likely enjoy these tasty dried fruit treats. The taste is similar to that of Ocean Spray’s Craisins snacks, but they seem more substantial due to the larger size. This variety is sold in a five ounce package.
- Ocean Spray Dried Blueberries – Ocean Spray’s dried blueberries are a great tasting, sweet snack that blueberry lovers are sure to find delightful. This flavor is sold in a four ounce package.
Enjoy a Healthy Snack
Larry Martin, Ocean Spray’s Vice President of Marketing, explains the rationale behind the company’s decision to make these tasty dried fruit snacks available to consumers. Martin stated, “We’ve taen all the goodness of the whole cranberry, blueberry and cherry and created a healthy, on-the-go snack for today’s busy family.”
Martin clarifies how these snacks can be incorporated into a healthy diet, stating, “Our new Ocean Spray Dried Fruit is a great way to add more fruit to your diet whether you’re looking for a quick energy boost or a healthy snack alternative.”
