We have found that natural raisins are generally very expensive, so we were pleased to find an off-brand option that is cheaper than the name-brand alternatives. We also have been pleased with the results of using this product. The packages are generally sealed well, and the raisins inside have been fresh and good. The expiration date on them is also generally pretty far out, so they will last a good while after they are bought. We also have been pleased with the taste of these products. Even though they cost less money, they still have as good and pleasant of a taste as any other natural raisins that we have tried. The nutritional value also seems to be about as good as the more expensive brands as well. All-around, this product has been a good bit cheaper than the name-brand equivalents, but they have performed just as well as any other that we have tried, so we will be sticking with this product.
