Dried fruit can be a great snack and was looking forward to the mixed fruit. I’m sure this is not just an issue for Mariana but after opening 3 different bags, I couldn’t get past the horrible smell and somehow when all the dried fruit is in one bag each fruit item almost taste the same. Anyway, I’m sure if you don’t mind the smell, these are not only good for you but a good source of sustenance, especially handy for traveling.
I didn’t purchase this fruit from Amazon, I got it from my own grocery store.
The bag I bought was very heavy on the plums but they were good. I didn’t like the apricots at all, they were huge and had some sort of grit on them that crunched my teeth when I bit in.
A positive though is that everything was nice and soft – even though it’s called dried fruit for a reason that doesn’t mean I want petrified. Also all the pieces of fruit were larger than what I usually get, at least two bites per piece.
I WAS VERY UPSET WHEN I WASN’T ABLE TO LOCATE THE DRIED MIXED FRIUT HERE IN AUSTIN BUT…HOORAY I DID FIND IT ON AMAZON AND I MAKE A WONDERFUL FRUIT COMPOTE WITH IT. IT IS GOOD HOT OR COLD AND IT IS SO GOOD HEALTH WISE FOR ME. THANKS AMAZON !
Best dried fruit I have ever eaten. Gourmet quality dried fruit like this usually costs much more, so its a bargain as well.
The Mariani Mixed Fruit was not my favorite. We could challenge each other’s palate here, but there was a faux-taste that could not be described with words. Something was missing (not sugar)???
The piece of dried peach was overly dry, chewy, and unappetizing. Not wanting to waste a piece of fruit, I put it in an empty birdbath outside for the squirrels or birds. Serendipitously it rained that night, and the next morning I discovered a rehydrated peach with a totally different appearance and appeal. I’ve since learned that dehydrated fruit can be rehydrated by soaking it in hot water for a few minutes. It can even be hydrated with fruit juice for even more flavor.
The Mariani mixed fruit is convenient for those who like having fruit on hand, but want to avoid the waste of fresh fruit going over-ripe before one gets around to eating it. It’s a nice mix of fruit that all ends up having similar taste since the eclectic mix has been together in the close quarters of a bag for so long. My favorites in the mix are the dried apples and dried pears. Dried plums predominate in this Mariani product, but they are pretty good too.
For best taste, put the opened bag in your refrigerator. Refrigeration ensures freshness and cuts down on the icky, sticky factor of the dried fruits.
really good stuff here, bag is a good size to snack with or as a way to get good fruit.half a bag is 330 cal. 75 total carbs, and all natural sweetness. no added sugar…dried but soft and full of flavor. pears are awesome! my fav. is the plum, the apricots are tangy, apples are sweet and good natural color,the fuzz on the peaches are kinda rough but my dog likes them 🙂 but overall an awesome product!!
