What is Moon Fruit?
Moon Fruit is a freeze-dried crunchy snack. We make smoothies and then freeze dry them for a super sweet, crunchy treat. You do not need to do anything extra except open the bag and enjoy them. Crunch, Crunch!
Freeze drying is the process of extracting all liquid from a product. It’s what gives Moon Fruit its big CRUNCH! Freeze-drying also preserves 97% of a fruit's nutrients which makes it a super healthy snack choice.

How do I store my Moon Fruit?
Moon fruit should be stored in a cool, dry place. Once opened, Moon Fruit will remain crunchy for several hours. After that, the moisture in the air will begin to soften the snack (freeze-drying pulls all the moisture out of the product and makes it crunchy). So, once a bag is opened, we suggest you enjoy them fully.
Whose idea was Moon Fruit?
Moon Fruit was the brainchild of Anne and Stephanie, two mom’s who were frustrated with the amount of sugar in their children's snacks. They decided to make something super crunchy, sweet, colorful and healthy… Moon Fruit was born. Anne and Stephanie run the company so it’s a woman owned, small business. They still often core apples, peel bananas and ship your product themselves.
Where is Moon Fruit from?
Moon Fruit is made in our small batch kitchen in the San Francisco Bay Area. As a product made in the USA, we think of everyone in North America as local to us. We hope you do too.
