RE: The tariff classification of a dried apple snack from China.

Dear Mr. Mansourian:

In your letters received July 2, 2007 and July 27, 2007, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Green Tree brand Apple Chips are described as slices of fresh Fuji apples that have been dehydrated and flavored, with no sugar, coloring, or other additives. The chips are put up in plastic retail packages containing 22 grams, net weight. The sample package states the apple slices contain “natural peach flavor,” and your letter indicates the product may be produced in a variety of flavors.
