Why do I love this snack?

Pineapple. It’s as simple as that! I love that Big Island Pineapple consists of one ingredient, pineapple - and has no added sugar or sulfites. We've made it easy to enjoy the great taste and health benefits of pineapple with the convenience of any grab-and-go treat.

This snack is naturally sweet, chewy and has that slight tropical tartness of fresh pineapple. It's also just a beautiful-looking snack; because it doesn't have added ingredients (like sweeteners or preservatives) the beauty of fresh pineapple is maintained. 

Plus, who wouldn't have fun looping all these pineapple rings onto your fingers?

Why is pineapple good for you?

Pineapples are full of manganese, a mineral that helps keep your bones strong. This tasty fruit can even help you digest food more easily. It contains an enzyme called bromelain, which helps break down proteins during digestion and may also help reduce inflammation. 

How can you add Big Island Pineapple to daily meals?

We love adding this snack to anything from main dishes to desserts to making other snacks. Try adding it as a garnish to a fruity cocktail, or incorporate them into tacos, kebabs and no-bake energy bites!
