Quick history lesson: Acai (pronounced ah-sigh-ee) is a South American palm tree that produces royal purple berries that are fertile with anti-oxidants and good-for-you nutrients. Massive parts of the Amazon have been disappearing due to unsustainable farming and logging and the demand for acai berries could help rebuild the rainforest slowly but surely. Peaceful Fruits gathers berries that are harvested wild in the Amazon rainforest and has a beautiful mission to give us food that nourishes our bodies and our planet. Even their packaging is compostable (but don’t eat it, it won’t taste good). So, we really don’t need another reason to love these acai strips – but we have one anyway. They are delicious! Sometimes a “taste of nature” can mean that something tastes like bark or dirt, but these dried fruit snacks are sweet and fresh and puts you right on a tropical island. Take these with you on a hike or a long walk in the park and you will really be one with nature. Go ahead, eat something delicious and nutritious AND save the rainforest, I dare you!
