Anything similar to Just Tomatoes?

Is there any equivalent out there to Just Tomatoes (specifically, the Fruit Munchies)? The co-ops are awesome, but even at $10 for a large, I am not sure if I can justify buying any more of a snack that I will finish off in 2 days. Just wondering if there is something else out there that is just as good. Thanks!

Costco sells something called fruit crisp by Brothers. I think they are better than just tomatoes, but they only have a few flavors to choose from: apple, strawberry/banana, pear, peach, and pineapple I think. The box at costco comes with 20 single size packs for about $12.00 with apple, pear and strawberry mixed in the box.

I have gotten something at my HEB that they just started carrying. The okra and garlic are YUM.... the fruit is awful! I will look at the brand as soon as DD is done nursing.

I grabbed the container... It's called "_____ Snax" by Sunrise Natural Foods. So Garlic Snax, Carrot Snax and so on. The fruit is awful, it all tastes the same and I think it has a trace of oil even though it is supposed to be just fruit. But the Veggies are good. Suppose this kind of unanswers your question though! Just avoid the fruit mix
(looking harder I see this is a Houston Company so you might not see them on your shelves.)

Trader Joe's sells blueberries, strawberries, and bananas, maybe some others too. It's sneaky hiding in bags with the regular dried fruit.

Oh and my Target had some that were pretty good called "Funky Monkey". We bought the Tropical and Bananas with Cinnamon (which are fantastic and taste like the Stuffed French Toast at my favorite breakfast place) I found them near the Trail Mix and dried fruit. It's 1 oz for $2. There was another brand but it was pricier.

I've had those, and they are good. I have only gotten the box of fuji apple and asian pear. I like how they come in pouches so they are easy to toss in my purse or diaper bag. Now I gotta try the strawberry kind!

Re: Anything similar to Just Tomatoes?

I did buy the blueberries and strawberries from Trader Joe's, I found they were pretty much the same exact thing as Just Tomatoes. I guess I was just looking for a similar mix...maybe have to buy separate fruits and mix it up myself. :-)
