Freeze-dried fruits, such as raspberries, are versatile ingredients. You can add them to your morning breakfast, into your drinks and smoothies, or as flavoring for your cooking. Households should always have a bag of freeze-dried fruits on hand, so I always make sure to stock up on them.
Are you intrigued? If you want to experiment with freeze-dried raspberries but don’t know where to start your search, let me help you with a list of places.
So, where to buy freeze-dried raspberries?
When it comes to healthy food options without the exorbitant price tag, Target is always a good bet. Their 1.25-ounce bag of freeze-dried raspberries might sound small, but they pack a punch. At $3.99, you’ll get four fruit servings in a tiny bag.
And as a bonus: the berries are non-GMO.
The only downside is Target doesn’t sell a bigger bag than this one. So if you want something larger for bulk storage, you’ll have to look elsewhere.
North Bay Trading Co
If you want something more significant than a 1.25-ounce bag, you should see what North Bay Trading offers. They sell freeze-dried raspberries in packages as small as half an ounce to something as large as 330 lbs. Now that’s a lot of raspberries!
For a middle-of-the-aisle option, North Bay Trading has a 3.5-ounce bag for $20.69 or a 1-lb bag for $63.44. And if you want to stock up, their 10-lb bulk box will set you back $511.60.
And if you’re curious about their reputation, know they’re trustworthy enough to be a brand available at Whole Foods stores. So why not skip the middleman and buy from North Bay Trading directly?
Never write off your closest Walmart store when it comes to freeze-dried raspberries. They carry several brands in different sizes, allowing you to decide whether to save money or stock up on raspberries.
Don’t feel like going to the store today? That’s fine, too – Walmart can send your items straight to your door with their shipping options, or you can opt for curbside pickup — this is why I love Walmart. You can also add other freeze-dried fruits to your order if you want some variety.
It’s a common misconception that freeze-dried foods are only for doomsday preppers, but that can’t be further from the truth. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t use stores like Emergency Essentials to get your freeze-dried raspberry fix.
Emergency Essentials sells a 9-ounce can of raspberries for $42.99, which is larger than what you usually find in stores and online retailers. Customer reviews also praise its quality and flavor, so you know you’re getting a good product.
The website does state that the raspberries in the can may be whole or in bits, so keep this in mind when ordering.
Harmony House Foods
This family-owned business in North Carolina knows how to make freeze-dried raspberries look even more presentable. Instead of packaging them in opaque foil bags or large tin cans, Harmony House presents them in a clear jar, showcasing each whole raspberry.
If this description intrigues you, then head over to their website for their 3.5-ounce jar of raspberries. Harmony House sells each one for $29.95, and you get a slight discount when you buy more than 6 in one order. As a bonus, each jar has no added sugar and no preservatives.
