I'm currently deployed; extremely austere environment. When my family asked what I wanted them to send I simply asked for protein (canned chicken/tuna), nuts (pistachios/almonds), and dried fruit. At my location, we have no fruit and occasionaly we'll have one veggie for dinner.
Wouldn't it be better to get my one or two servings of fruits from dried, rather than not at all? The ingredients on my dried fruit packages are simply the fruit and some preservatives.
