The only thing a freeze dried raspberry is, is a freeze dried raspberry! Nothing else is added to preserve these fruits; its just you and the crunchiness of pure raspberries from here on out. Folks like to buy these to sprinkle on frosted cakes for special occasions, or on their yogurt or ice cream for everyday fanfare. Kids like to eat them for after school snacks, or to jazz up a boring rice cake topped with almond butter. Here at Nutty Steph's we use these freeze dried raspberries to make our Love Bar pink!
