Fruit snacks have been around for millennia, but until now, the history of fruit snacks has been limited to the Mediterranean.
Now a team of Australian researchers has developed a new fruit snack that has been around in Australia for thousands of years, and is probably the best way to start eating fruits today.
The researchers discovered the fruit snacks came to Australia through a cargo ship and a shipwreck off the coast of Western Australia.
The fruit snacks were the fruit of a tree that grew in a boggy area off the eastern coast of Tasmania.
When the shipwreck was first discovered, it had been estimated that the ship had lost most of its crew and that the rest had been killed in the wreck’s explosion.
The research team discovered the ancient fruit snacks when they were examining the remains of the ship and found traces of dried fruit in the remains.
The team found that the fruit snack was a mix of dried apples, apricots, apricles and prunes.
Fruit snacks can have a number of health benefits, including helping to fight the disease called bergstrom syndrome, which causes severe, progressive kidney damage.
“The research is based on our understanding of the historical origins of the fruit drink, the fruit-flavored snack which originated around 1500 AD,” lead researcher Professor David O’Connell told New Scientist.
“We found that we can trace this snack to a ship which has been sailing between Tasmania and Western Australia since at least 1500 AD.”
Fruit snacks are now a popular snack in many countries, including the United States, where they are widely consumed in fast food restaurants.
They also play a major role in the country’s fast food culture, as they’re often paired with a variety of popular drinks.
The new fruit snacks are one of several food products that have been identified as having a rich history of use in Australia, including beer and wine, fruit and nuts.
The study found that fruit snacks originated in Australia around the same time that Australia became an independent country.
“Our research is an exciting discovery, as the ancient Australian fruit snack is a staple in the daily diet of people across Australia, and the origins of this snack date back at least to at least 15,000 years ago,” Professor O’Donnell said.
“This is the first time fruit snacks and other foods have been isolated in Australia and our results are consistent with the archaeological evidence from Western Australia.”
The research is published in the journal Food Research International.
