How are Dirt Kitchen Snacks made?
For us it is all about the veggies. They are the star of our show. So, we searched extensively and figured out that the best way to make them snackably delicious is to make them crispy! They are air dried to preserve the nutrients & taste and to add lots of crunch. We mix in seasoning and sometimes nuts, and seal everything in packages to keep it flavorful and ready when you are. Making great tasting veggie snacks is not easy, but it’s our passion and we're kinda proud of it.
What do you call the process you use to make your veggies taste so good?

What makes Dirt Kitchen Snacks Special?

It's all about the Veggies. We don’t mean to flex (well okay – just a little) but making veggies snackable is not easy. We searched extensively for really great veggies and even worked with the people that help us find great veggies to create better ways to air dry some of them, to get more flavor, crunch and color out of the amazing things that grow out of the ground. Then we got together with some maker chef friends – no kidding there were more than a dozen of us in the kitchen – and brainstormed for days. In the end it’s really kitchen logic – great food, prepared in great ways, that you can feel great about eating. That seems pretty special to us.Short answer: Dirt Kitchen Snacks are special because when you munch on them you will see veggies you recognize, taste veggies you love and smile at the combinations you never thought would be so delicious.
Are dried/dehydrated vegetables as nutritious as fresh vegetables?
We’re all about preserving the delicious flavor and goodness of veggies in our snacks. In general, when you air dry a veggie you take the water out and everything else is concentrated, meaning you’ll find the same nutrients in our veggies as you would in the fresh version. And the flavor gets concentrated too, that’s why they taste so great!
How long will Dirt Kitchen Snacks stay good for?/Does it go out of date?
Real food doesn’t last forever. So, we put a lot of thought into the best way to air dry veggies to keep the flavor and texture great for as long as possible – because snacks that go bad too quickly are not very convenient. We think we’ve found a great solution and we label every pouch with a “Best By” date. The date is on the back of the pouch.
