The Convenience of Freeze-Dried Candy: Perfect for On-the-Go Snacking

The Convenience of Freeze-Dried Candy: Perfect for On-the-Go Snacking

It seems way too early in the year, but campsites are already getting booked fast! This brings on dreams of summer and road trips - which, of course, leads to thoughts of coolers full of snacks for on the road. What makes a great road snack? Something bite-sized, full of flavour, and can survive hours in a vehicle no matter the weather. No one wants a soft squishy mess in the summer or a candy that froze into a tooth-breaking rock in the winter. That Sweet Lyfe's freeze-dried candy is the perfect on-the-go treat, no matter what adventure you choose or what season it is. It's easy to take with you anywhere, stays fresh for years, and you can choose from all your favourite candies.

Easy Portability

Nothing says convenience like portability, and here at That Sweet Lyfe, we understand how important that is. None of us likes a gooey, sticky candy mess - especially when it's in the bottom of your kids' backpack. From shoulder bags to vehicles, freeze-dried candy has you covered whenever you need to satisfy your cravings. The freeze-drying process changes the texture of the candy, so there is no more melted goo. This also means that hands are less prone to stickiness, and your candy doesn't all clump together. Aside from the soft, sticky factor, freeze-dried candy is also lighter and less likely to squish into a ball. It's a great way to pack a sweet treat when hiking or travelling. 

Lasts a Long Time

If you've ever tried to store your candy in Tupperware or Ziploc bags to keep it fresh, you've probably had the experience of reaching for a handful of sweet soft goodness and found rock-hard candy instead. Some people try to vacuum seal their candy supply to make it last longer or stash their leftover Halloween goodies in the freezer in hopes of keeping them fresh for later. Neither of these strategies works that well. 

Compared to freeze-dried candy that can stay fresh for 25 years or more, there is no better option than freeze-dried treats. The special process we use when freeze-drying candy removes all the excess moisture from the sweets, so you can be confident that you get the same great quality in every bite. 

Freeze Dry Any Candy

Starburst is one of our most popular products, but any of your favourites can be freeze-dried. The best freeze-dried candy options are Skittles and salt-water taffy, but candies work well. The drying process does change the texture of the candy considerably, but no flavour is lost in the process. If anything, our freeze-dried products are even more flavourful than the original candy. Whatever your favourite is, chances are That Sweet Lyfe has freeze-dried it for your snacking joy.

Fun for Everyone

One of the biggest differences in freeze-dried candy is the texture. This means that sticky and chewy candies like Starburst or taffy become more light and crunchy. The change in texture means that even if you have braces or a dental appliance that restricts you from eating sticky treats, you can probably enjoy the freeze-dried version instead, though we recommend checking with your dentist first, just to be sure!

Rekindle Your Love of Snacking

Freeze-dried candy rekindles the fun of discovering your favourite candy. Old stand-bys suddenly have a more intense flavour and completely different texture. Maybe a gummy that wasn't your favourite before will be a new and exciting treat to try again. Whether you've had a life-long sweet tooth or simply want to relive your childhood memories, That Sweet Lyfe has a variety of freeze-dried candy options to suit anyone's taste.
