These dried fruit snacks have skin in the game. That’s because the fall-friendly combo of hachiya persimmons, tart apples, and creamy yellow peaches have their peels intact, which are full of flavorful essential oils, as well as vital nutrients and antioxidants. Besides being delicious, the chewy mix is excellent for the environment, since discarded rinds actually make up 15% of annual food waste. Talk about adding to their a-peel.
