Wacky Apple - Review and Give-away

Wacky Apple is a family owned and operated brand, dedicated to organic farming and producing delicious applesauce’s, fruit juices and fruit snacks. Wacky Apple products are made from naturally sweet organic apples, free of pesticides; contain no added water, no artificial colors, no preservatives and no added sugar! 
Our products are, gluten free, vegan, and contain NO GMO’s. Wacky Apple makes delicious, fun, organic food your on-the-go family won’t stop eating - and our mission is to get healthy snacks into the hands (and mouth's) of kids so they may develop their own nutritious & healthy living habits!  Wacky Apple is available in all Utah Whole Foods, and Good Earth

My family tried out several of the products from Wacky Apple recently. We tried the apple sauces, juices and flat fruit. The kids loved the taste and products. In fact, they devoured them so quickly that I only got to try one small piece of the Flat Fruit. It was delicious.

My kids are always hungry when they get home from school and beg for snacks. Since by then, I already have dinner planning on my mind, the last thing I want to do is spend a lot of time in the kitchen preparing their snacks. However, I do want them to eat something healthy. The Wacky Apple Organic snacks are perfect. The kids can help themselves; like the taste and I can rest easy that they are getting a healthy snack.

The Wacky Apple Flat Fruit is especially convenient for traveling and school lunches. They would be great to throw in the back pack on our hikes up the canyon to see the fall leaves.





The nice folks at Wacky Apple had a few snack ideas :

Grilled Cheese Applesauce
Grilled Cheese and Applesauce

Use your favorite bread and cheese and whip up a quick and delicious grilled cheese. Panini press pans can make it super quick and easy. Remember, low heat, for a longer time makes for grilled cheese perfection.  Slice your freshly grilled sandwich into wedges and serve with Wacky Apple Golden Applesauce for dipping! Sounds odd, but tastes great! A delicious and easy treat for everyone!

Grilled Cheese with Sliced Fresh Apples

Use your favorite bread, cheese, and sliced apples to make one of falls best lunches! Lightly butter the outside of each slice of bread. Layer your favorite cheese and apples inside, grill/griddle on medium heat slowly to ensure melted cheese and non-burnt bread.    Enjoy with a nice cold Wacky Apple Juice!
Don’t forget all the other fun toppings you can add. Try Nitrate free turkey and Swiss, local organic peaches with brie or provolone, or even avocado, cheddar and turkey!

Wacky Applesauce Cake in Cup

Applesauce cake in a cup

Do you ever have a craving for cake, but don’t want to make a whole one? Try this awesome idea for a single serving, quick, cake in a cup!
-1 Tbsp butter
-2 Tbsp sugar
-2 Tbsp Wacky Apple Cinnamon Applesauce
-1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
-2 drops pure vanilla extract
-1/4 Cup flour
-1/8 tsp baking powder
- pinch of sea salt
-Chopped fresh apple chunks
Soften butter in microwave until soft, but not melted. About 10 seconds. Stir in sugar and mix well. Stir in Applesauce, pumpkin pie spice, and vanilla extract until incorporated. Now stir in the flour, baking powder, salt and apples. Mix until combined and smooth out top of batter in cup. Sprinkle your favorite granola on top, for an easy and delicious crumb topping. Pop it in the microwave for 50 – 80 seconds. Every microwave is different and weather conditions will also effect cook time. I suggest after 50 seconds, proceed at 10 second intervals. Enjoy warm, right out of the microwave, they really do taste their best right away. Careful not to microwave too long, they can get rubbery.
Use basic recipe for an easy platform to add nutrients. Try adding flax seed, Chia seeds, cranberries, walnuts, granola, or chocolate chips! These make a great way to hide delicious nutrients in a “cake form.” Try combining granola, apples and flax and microwaving in a non-waxed paper cup for a quick breakfast while running out the door in the morning.

My favorite way to eat applesauce: make waffles (we do waffle sticks) and dip them in applesauce. Healthier than syrup and I think it's tastier, too (:
