This week’s bag features pineapple! Hawaii is the only state in the U.S. that commercially grows pineapple and today plantations in Hawaii produce almost one third of the world’s crop.

Fresh pineapples is low in calories, very high in vitamin C and can be enjoyed in many ways! What else is in the bag?
