On the package of Baobest BaoBites superfruit snacks ($9.99 for 5.5 ounces, Baobabfoods.com), it warns that they’re “deliciously addictive,” and the Triathlete staff can attest to that. These small fruit cubes, available in pomegranate, peach mango and blood orange flavors, are made with real fruit concentrate and organic baobab fruit powder with a sweet (but not too sweet) flavor. We liked them straight out of the bag, but they’re also great baked into muffins, sprinkled on oatmeal or added to trail mix. Baobab is a fruit packed with fiber, antioxidants, vitamin C and potassium, making these chews a convenient way to eat some phytonutrients in the winter months.
