Mott's Strawberry Banana Applesauce Review

Mott's Strawberry Banana ApplesauceMott's Unsweetened Applesauce has almost become a staple in my dorm room. Immediately upon arriving home from the store, I place them in the freezer so that I can have a creamy, cold treat anytime that I want (just peel off the aluminum and microwave for about 20 seconds, give or take). However, every now and then I branch off and try some of the flavored varieties to keep things interesting. I knew that when I ran across Mott's Strawberry Banana Applesauce, this would be one of those times.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 1 cup (4 ounces)
Calories: 90
Total Fat: 0%
Sodium: 0%
Carbohydrates: 16 grams
Fiber: 1 gram, 4%
Sugars: 21 grams
Protein: 0 grams

When I pulled it out of the freezer (after thawing it out enough to dig in), I found it tastes like a strawberry banana smoothie - weird I know, but it's the most delicious thing. The flavors are so natural and take your taste buds to a whole different level than traditional applesauce flavors. The texture of the applesauce stands, tried and true, but the phenomenal flavor profile takes it up a notch or two.

Alas, the nutrition profile leaves a little to be desired - I just wish the sugar count was not twice that of the no sugar added variety. Each 4 ounce cup of Mott's Strawberry Banana Applesauce provides 90 calories, no fat or sodium, 1 gram of fiber (4% of the RDA), 21 grams of sugar and no protein.

The ingredients are, apples, water, high fructose corn syrup, strawberry puree, sugar, banana puree, natural flavor, ascorbic acid and red 40. A 6 pack cost me $2.79 and I can see why people who are used to eating sweetened applesauce, might shun the unsweetened version.

I loved the taste of this, but 21 grams of sugar in a tiny 4 ounce cup of Mott's Strawberry Banana Applesauce seems like a bit too much for me, although thankfully, it's not a whole lot of calories. Here's a tip to make really delicious applesauce - put it in the freezer, as I suggested earlier!
