I don't know about you, but I love me some organic food. Santa Cruz Organic and R. W. Knudsen Organic 'Sensible Sippers' stole our hearts soon after they arrived in our home. They sent us a box full of organic samples in the mail that weighed as much as a heavy stack of text books. We couldn't believe how much food was in it. Did I mention that I love food? In this BOX o' ORGANICS (the very same box you can win in this post) were a bunch of juice boxes, two jars of organic peanut butter (crunchy and creamy), and FOUR different kinds of applesauce! The UPS man may never recover from carrying all that food up to my door.
There was Apple Apricot Sauce, Apple Blackberry Sauce, Apple Cinnamon Sauce and Apple Raspberry Sauce... oh, it was dreamy!
I wish we still had some in the refrigerator right now.
Applesauce is one of our favorite snacks during school because it is healthy and easy (no peeling necessary). I just don't pass up free applesauce, y'all. Applesauce is a Sprittibee staple. I HAD to try this stuff... and I was NOT disappointed. It is crazy good. I am in to brand loyalty (stuck in my ways), but I'm telling you - we have been pining for this stuff since the last of it disappeared.
Unfortunately, the nearest store that sells it is quite a ways in to town. We remain determined to get some more, though. The kids even mentioned it to me today. I'm hoping to talk our local grocery store in to carrying these yummy treats.
After the applesauce vanished, we dug in to the juice boxes. I don't know about you, but I like to add water to my juice to make it less sweet so the kids don't get used to so much sugar. This is especially true for the little ones and kids who are sensitive to sugar in the first place. R. W. Knudsen Organic Sensible Sippers thought of everything. Now you don't have to worry about the kids getting STRAIGHT juice when they crack open a cold juice box on the go - theirs come with 50% juice, 50% water... and they are entirely ORGANIC! My little Bee is sure to be enjoying these in the future!
We loved the flavors, too: Apple, Fruit Punch (organic apple, pineapple, orange, and lemon juices), Banana (shown above), and Mixed Berry (organic apple, raspberry, blackberry, cherry and white grape juices). Mmmm!
Of course, their peanut butter wasn't bad, either. Tastes great with my plum jelly on a PBJ for lunch! In fact, we ate some today! What I love is that they have light roasted creamy or crunchy and DARK roasted creamy or crunchy! They call it 'gourmet peanut butter'. I just call it yummy.
