Bella Viva Eco Fruit Tote - Review


I have never seen such a huge selection of dried fruits! Bella Viva sent this Eco Fruit Tote and I was simply amazed while unpacking it. Nearly ten pounds of dried fruits and nuts filled this canvas reusable tote bag. Some of these fruits I've never tasted before. I don't think I've ever seen California Persimmons and was quite anxious to try it. There were also two different kinds of California Peaches.
A pound of Cashews and a pound of Raw Almonds were a nice addition to the bag, providing the bit of salty that always accompanies sweet so well. I don't think I've tasted Cashews before but I'm definitely hooked on them now. This huge tote full of goodies would be an excellent housewarming gift!
Next came dried blueberries, which looked like raisins and tasted like blueberries. I shared my blueberry raisins with the preschoolers and they loved them! The California Apricots are scrumptious and have long been a favorite dried fruit of mine. The pitted prunes are juicy and delicious as well.
Red Flame Raisins are another new taste for me, but they are the best tasting raisins I've ever had. They are sweeter and softer than what I've bought in the grocery store. Rounding out the selection is the California pears and Bettyanne Plums, both very good!
I made a plateful of all the different fruits and nuts so I could show you the quality of their products. Everything in my bag was fresh and delicious. Just the food on this plate was enough to fill me up. You can purchase the Eco Fruit Tote, 9.5lbs, for $90 at http://www.bellaviva.com/eco-fruit-tote.
