Musselman's Applesauce Review and Giveaway...

We recently had the chance to review several varieties of Musselman's applesauce.


About Musselman's:
"At Musselman's, we believe making healthy, delicious apple sauce is more than just a job. It's a way of life. And that's why the growers who have spent their entire lives nurturing and harvesting apples also own the company.
Simply put, Musselman's is made from the best – and made by the folks that know apples best.

How’d you like to provide you and your family with delicious snacks every day without feeling guilty about it? Well, with Musselman’s, you can do just that. Whether you’re eating Musselman’s with a meal or enjoying a single-serve cup while you’re on the go, you’ll be fueling your body with healthy, nutritious ingredients. Better yet, Musselman’s Apple Sauces, juices and ciders are so delicious, eating healthy tastes as good as it makes you feel.
-Apple Sauce naturally has no fat or cholesterol and is low in sodium.
-Kids will be kids - which means they’ll be looking for a variety of snacks between meals. With our Sesame Street Fruit-Flavored Single-Serve cups in your cupboard, they’ll have plenty to choose from.
-Every 4-ounce Musselman’s Single-Serve cup equals one daily serving of fruit.
-Boron, found in apples, is an essential trace element that helps to harden bones, which may reduce the onset of osteoporosis.
-Pack a Single-Serve cup and take it with you so that when you have a craving for a snack you don’t have to resort to a vending machine.
-Sugar rushes have met their match. Apples contain complex carbohydrates that give you energy faster than eating something high in sugar.
-Apples contain pectin, a water-soluble fiber found to reduce levels of cholesterol by removing it from the bloodstream.
Musselman’s Healthy PicksHealthy Picks™ apple sauce has a burst of flavor and nutrition in every bite. This Healthy snack provides a good daily source of fiber and calcium as well as antioxidants from delicious “superfruits” like pomegranates, açaí berries and granny smith apples. Musselman’s Totally FruitTotally Fruit™ apple sauce has a natural fruit taste your family will love, with NO high fructose corn syrup, artificial colors or flavors, you’ll know it’s good for them."

What we thought: We are huge applesauce fans at our house, so this review went very well:) The Totally Fruit varieties were definitely fruity and the kid's favorites. The adults really loved the Healthy Picks and I was super impressed with the Granny Smith variety in particular. We have tried a lot of applesauce and Musselman's Health Picks Granny Smith is by far the yummiest I've had. I am not a fan of super sweet applesauce and I like my fruit to taste like fruit not syrup, so this applesauce was perfect:) I loved the natural flavor of the apples and the actual pieces of apple we great! I really appreciate knowing I am giving my family something they love that is actually good for them! Thanks Musselman's!! ABCD Diaries gives Musselman's Totally Fruit and Healthy Picks applesauce an A+!!
