It may not be apple-picking season, but there's no time like the present to pluck some of these apple-licious no-guilt treats from supermarket shelves...

Funky Monkey Fruit That Crunches, Applemon
Hands down — my favorite freeze-dried fruit! These crispy apple pieces are sprinkled with organic cinnamon and chock-full of nutrients and apple-y goodness. Plus, unlike lots of regular dried fruit, this stuff has no added sugar. Check out all of the groovy primate's other flavors too!
Each 1-oz. bag has 100 calories, 0g fat, 26g carbs, 3g fiber, 0g protein, and a PointsPlus® value of 3.

Kashi Soft n' Chewy Bars, Apple Cobbler
For another on-the-go apple snack, pick up these fruity bars. Each one has 10g of whole grains and a nice amount of fiber. Full of fresh-baked flavor, yet there's no risk of devouring an entire apple pie by yourself!
Each bar has 130 calories, 3g fat, 24g carbs, 4g fiber, 3g protein, and a PointsPlus value of 3.

Snack Pack Bakery Shop Pudding, Apple Pie a la Mode
Speaking of pie... each of these awesome little pudding treats is like apple pie in a cup! (Plus the taste of ice cream, of course.) One snack pack has as much calcium as a cup of milk, plus as much flavor as a slice of apple pie. Yum...
Each snack pack has 100 calories, 3g fat, 18g carbs, 1g fiber, <1g protein, and a PointsPlus value of 3.

GoGo squeeZ Fast Fruit
Apples are perfect on the go, but applesauce? Not so much. Luckily, GoGo squeeZ's line of pouched snacks features three apple-happy flavors: Apple Peach Passion Fruit, Apple Raspberry Cranberry, and Apple Mango Banana Pineapple. And unlike most fruit-sauce pouches, these are meant for people of all ages, not just the kiddies. Yayayayay!
Each pouch has 80 - 90 calories, 0g fat, 20 - 21g carbs, 1 - 3g fiber, 1g protein, and a PointsPlus value of 2.
