Santa Cruz Organic Products

Most families are well into the first month of school.  So how many of you are already struggling with what to put into the lunch boxes?  Well Santa Cruz Organic has some products for your ultimate organic lunch box solution.

Peanut Butter – This tasty spread is full of goodness and no added extras.  The Santa Cruz Organic® brand peanut butters are offered in both light and dark roasted, creamy and crunchy varieties.  They provide a really rich flavor of peanut to them.  You may be unaccustomed to the texture if you’re used to eating non-organic peanut butter.  Because there is nothing added to it, when you first open it, you will notice that the oils sit on top of the butter.  Making it spreadable is as easy as just mixing it up.  It is required that it be refrigerated though, because there are no preservatives in it.  I find in my fridge it gets a little hard to spread that way, so when I know I’m going to be using it, I just put it out on the counter top about 20 minutes before I have to use it, and it’s easier to spread on soft bread.

Organic Fruit Spreads – The taste of these will keep you coming back for more!  These spreads are great for breakfast on toast or bagels, or for an afternoon treat paired with Santa Cruz Organic Peanut Butter.  These are REALLY good.  They are super smooth for spreading, and you will enjoy the bold flavors.  The Seedless Raspberry is also good for baking and for those that have sensory issues.  The texture of the spreads reminded me a bit of baby food.  They come in the flavors of Apricot, Strawberry, Seedless Red Raspberry and Blackberry Pomegranate.

Organic Fruit Sauces – Because not all sauces have to be purely apple!  Coming in a variety of flavors (yes, including apple!), these contain 100% of your daily value of vitamin C in each 4-ounce serving of the sauce cups – perfect for kids’ lunch boxes.  Coming in Apple Apricot, Apple, Apple Cinnamon, Apple Peach and Tropical Fruit, there is sure to be one your kids love.  

We’re not big fruit sauce eaters, but I love cooking and baking with it.  I made this delectable recipe with the Apple Peach Fruit Sauce that I received to review, and it was devoured that evening!
