What do some of your flavors taste like? The combinations like sweet potato and coconut sound interesting.

Great question! This is what we hear from our fans:

Sweet Potato + Coconut: “just like carrot cake”

Beet + Cocoa: “like rich dark chocolate”

Butternut Squash + Peanut Butter: “just the right amount of creamy peanut butter”

Berries + Peanut Butter: “think PBJ & sandwich!”

Kale + Apple: “reminds you of fresh apple pie”

What if there is no expiration date? How do I know if it is still good?!

Remember, Phyters are “real food” and don’t contain preservatives. If there is no “best by” date on your Phyter, return it to the store for a replacement. As always, if something tastes funny, do not eat it. If you have any other issues, return it to the store you bought it from and ask for a full refund. In addition, please email info@phyterfood.com and let us know which store you bought it from so we can work with that retailer to improve freshness.
