Editor's Pick: Fruit Bliss

 I enjoy snacking on pieces of fruit throughout the day, but I don't always remember to pack them before I leave the house and sometimes it can be impossible to get out of the office to go grab something. Enter Fruit Bliss. The organic, preservative-free dried fruit products are my favorite go-to. It's a different kind of fruit snack. Although they're dried fruit, they're always juicy and conveniently healthy.
Founder Susan Leone has been taking an interest in nutrition since she was a teenager. Her healthy lifestyle continued well into marriage and she stumbled upon rehydreated fruits while visiting family in Turkey. She decided to expand the concept and share it with the U.S. market.
Operating under the motto, "Made from the fruit, the whole fruit and nothing but the fruit," the company steams each piece along the way, a process that infuses water so they retain their juiciness. There are four mouthwatering options available: Organic Deglet Nour Dates, Organic French gen Plums, Organic Turkish Apricots and Organic Turkish Figs. It's almost impossible for me to decide on one bag, so the company also offers a medley which includes all four. Additionally, they're available in a standard size and small bags as well.
