Costco Freeze dried fruit/veggies on 03/25/2014 14:08:26 MDT Print View

Has anybody tried the Freeze-Dried Fruit or Veggies that Costco sells online? I don't know about the quality or price.
The quantities are larger than I'd like but I'd like to know what others think.

I already know about the other online freeze-dried options out there so please don't make this a discussion about them. I'm trying to see if anyone has tried the Costco stuff.
Thanks,
Tad

Is it the Thrive brand? If so, they are fine.

Sarah, the brand they have up no (30% off) is "Chef's Banquet". I'm not familier with that brand

I di however have fruits and veggies in the brand you've mentioned. I would imagine they are decent enough for freeze dried.

From Thrive's website:
We are proud to say that a majority of THRIVE foods originate in the US, though we also source foods from other countries depending on season, availability, and other factors in the food industry, as do most grocery stores. However, we do not source any THRIVE products from China, and all our products go through a rigorous quality assurance process and are rejected if they do not meet our high standards. For information on the country of origin of any THRIVE product, please see your consultant or a customer service representative.
