Any stores around sell freeze dried fruits?

We like the Cherrios with the Bananas and strawberries in them but they have discontinued that flavor. Freeze dried fruits are different from dehydrated fruits, which are easy to find in stores. Freeze dried are very light, airy, not like banana chips.
Does anyone buy freeze dried fruits? if so where do you get them?

I can't remember the brand name, but I've seen them at Sprouts. It's on a rack in the produce section. (Around the outer edges...)

Just Tomatoes sell a lot of different fruits and also veggies and they are delicious. I believe that some of their range might be freeze dried. You can check them out at www.justtomatoes.com I've seen them sold at Sprouts and Central Market. Whole Foods is also supposed to carry them, but I haven't seen them there when I've shopped.

I've seen Just Tomatoes at the Whole Foods on Preston and Forest. It's just past the produce section as you turn the corner - near a set of employee double doors on the right.

I think they have the "Just" fruits & veggies in most Tom Thumbs and of course Central Market. We have also seen a great selection at some Albertson's, so you might have them at your local grocery store. They are usually in the lower or side shelves near the fruits & veggies. We love all of the "Justs" we have tried.

I pick up the "Just" products when I come across them, but the Gerber ones are really easy to find. DD loves all the Gerber freeze dried fruits. And they have a banana-strawberry combo pack too.

I just picked up some "Just Veggies" at Market Street here in McKinney... They had all the freeze dried fruits with them.. They were near the bulk section in the front.

We've been buying boxes of individual packs at Costco. It's not the "Just..." It's Brother All Natural brand. They used to carry bananas, strawberries, pears and apples. Currently they only have the last two. HTH!
