We’re trying it before you buy it.
Company: Kopali Organics
Product: Organic Goldenberry dried fruit
Editor’s score: 3.5/5
Why we liked it: Berry Delicious!
The package itself describes the product as “sweet and tangy,” and that is definitely what it is — with an emphasis on tangy. It’s so tangy, in fact, that it’s overwhelmingly sour, a major plus for the sour-candy lovers out there (3 out of the 5 taste testers I recruited thought these were tasty)! And with almost 10 grams less sugar than other popular sweet/sour candies plus a full serving of real fruit, it’s a healthier choice. They are also certified organic, and therefore free from harmful chemicals and funky genetically engineered ingredients.
The Goldenberry’s downfalls: Texture, color and overwhelming taste
A little like large brown raisins, these little snacks on-the-go actually look unappetizing. They are also filled with tiny little seeds that crunch when you bite into them, somewhat hindering the ‘raisinlike’ appeal. Also, if you’re expecting a subtle taste similar to a raisin, the shot of sourness may be a little too much to take.
