I love a good peanut butter and jelly sandwich, but it has to be organic with the right amount of sweet and salty. Santa Cruz Organics make an array of peanut butter and fruit spreads that will satisfy your sweet and salty tooth!
I am not a stranger to Santa Cruz Organics. My family drinks their delicious organic juice but I was in love with their crunchy light peanut butter. The Santa Cruz Organic brand peanut butters are offered in both light and dark roasted, creamy and crunchy varieties. I like that they contain no hydrogenated oils, no added sugars and no artificial ingredients.
Of course you need a good fruit spread that tastes like fruit to complete your sandwich. Too often, commercial jams taste like sugar and it's hard to identify the fruit flavor. Their seedless red raspberry is my favorite and the strawberry is my daughter's top pick. They are truly decadent. I know that decadent is a strong word to describe jelly, but you have to try it for yourself.
My daughter loves to take their organic fruit sauce with her for a snack after dance class. The new apple peach sauce cups are so yummy but they also offer cinnamon and spices and pureed organic fruits such as blackberries, cherries, strawberries and apricots.
You get 100% of your daily value of vitamin C in each 4-ounce serving of the sauce cups - perfect for kids' lunch boxes with no added sugar!
Their plight to raise awareness about the benefits of organic agriculture is admirable.
How do they do it?
"Each year we buy enough renewable energy to produce our entire line of products, and we are an official Green-E certified business. We've even reduced the waste that we create, recycling an amazing 96% of our refuse, which earned us a prestigious WRAP award."
