For Day 5 of Lucy Loves Local – check out Canada First Freeze Dried Foods based in Drayton Valley. Now, when I first got recommended this business by a friend. I wasn’t sure I wanted any dehydrated treats! What I quickly learned, is that freeze dried often changes the structure of the food, and you get some very unique combinations.
Freeze dried salt water taffy is great if you love the taffy but hate the stickiness. It kind of just melts in your mouth. The freeze dried bananas have a bizarre sweet fizz to them with a bit of crunch. And the freeze dried skittles – well that was completely unexpected! Such a fun different taste sensation.
Some of my clients who made a move this year got to sample some of these treats in their gratitude box.
As unique stocking stuffers, you may want to place an order for an unexpected treat! From seasonal fruits, candies and so much more, you might be astonished at all that can be freeze dried!
