Raisin Fruit Bar

While developing a raisin jerky bar for the US military, the California Raisin Marketing Board’s food technologist discovered that the bars did not necessarily need beef to create a wonderful and chewy beef jerky product. Called a Buffalo Soldier Bar in honor of the US 10th Cavalry and 125th Infantry regiments, posted on the American frontier in the 1890s, this concept demonstrates the flavor carrying ability of California Raisins in savory bars. Candy companies are looking at this concept as an inexpensive, shelf stable filling that can take on savory as well as fruit flavors.
