Dried Fruit Without the Nonsense

Dried Cherry and Chocolate Chip Cookies

Have you wondered why a bag of dried fruit contains more ingredients than just fruit? Sunrise Fresh proves that there doesn’t need to be! While other companies pack their dried fruit with sugars and other ingredients to make up for lost water weight, Sunrise Fresh lets the fruit speak for itself with all-natural flavor and no added ingredients. And you can order Sunrise Fresh directly to your door from Amazon.

Sunrise Fresh Dried Cherries

These no-nonsense dried cherries are perfect for baking recipes like this one, but they also make great road trip, movie theater, and lunchbox snacks.

Sunrise Fresh specializes in cherries, but they don’t stop there. They recently began offering dried apples, blueberries, peaches, and pears as well, which can be found on Amazon and on Walmart.com. Pick a favorite or three and add them to your cart during your next online shopping trip!
