Salt Water Taffy 

Salt Water Taffy is one of those treats that just never gets old. It’s sweet, it’s soft, it’s chewy. How could it get any better? 

Well, we’re here to tell you that freeze-dried salt water taffy is salt water taffy like you’ve never had it before. When we freeze-dried salt water taffy, it turned into this super light and airy, crispy bite of perfection. It’s quickly become one of our go-to snacks, and after just one bite, it’ll be one of your favourites too. 

Gummi Bears 

Freeze-dried gummi bears are the definition of fun! While the flavour doesn’t change much after freeze-drying, the texture and size do. Freeze-dried gummi bears turn into these puffy and perfectly crunchy treats. If you grew up loving gummi bears, try freeze-dried gummi bears today.

Hi-Chews are one of those candies that once you taste them once, you’ll never look back. So now, imagine that delicious flavour… but better! 

That’s what freeze-dried Hi-Chews are like. Freeze-dried Hi-Chews turn into these airy, crunchy bites. But the best part comes when you bite into them. The fruity flavour of the Hi-Chews burst in your mouth when you take a bite – it’s a true taste of perfection. In our expert opinion, freeze-dried Hi-Chews are basically a form of self-care. 


Skittles are one of those candies that work on every occasion. Having a movie night and need a sweet treat to compliment your popcorn? Having a rough day and need a little pick me up? Skittles are the answer to all of the above. 

But freeze-dried Skittles are even better (we know, we didn’t think it was possible)! It’s one of those treats where you can go your whole life without trying it, but once you do try it, you’ll become obsessed. The tiny treats puff up, pushing the colourful shell open, and leave you with a crunchy bite of pure sugar. This is a must-try if there ever was one.
