Peaceful Fruits is a social good snack company that supports sustainable, economic empowerment in the Amazon Rainforest and Akron, Ohio, where they employ people with disabilities in full wage jobs to produce their fruit snacks
Each fruit snack is packed with over 25 antioxidant-rich acai berries that are blended with other whole fruits to produce their two flavors.
Peaceful Fruits Wild Acai Super-Fruit Strips are available in both Apple and Pineapple flavors. The company is currently offering packs containing 12-strips for $13.99 each. They normally sell for $15.
