Dried fruit snacks can be enjoyed any time. These snacks are tasty and sweet. Unfortunately, most dried fruit snacks contain chemicals and artificial flavours and don't have a long shelf life. You can choose to use only wholesome fruit and you will know that the dried fruit snacks you make will contain no artificial ingredients or colourings, unlike store-bought dried fruit snacks. Making your own dried fruit snacks will also ensure that they don't spoil quickly.
