Can I get a yum for Musselman's No sugar Added Natural Unsweetened Applesauce?! It's actually been quite a while since I reached for applesauce as a snack, but Musselman's sent me a gift basket with a few of their products to try out, and the Unsweetened Applesauce was the first thing I reached for. First I made Applesauce Chicken - to die for (but I cannot find the recipe online again - help!); Then I tried it as a stand alone snack, and I reconnected with why I used to eat this all the time. The taste is a little tart and it's slightly sweet (there are 8 grams of sugars) per 1/2 cup serving. There is also 2 grams of fiber (8% of the daily value) per serving.
For people who like sweetened applesauce, I really challenge you to try this stuff - try it a few times and then decide if you can make the switch. To me, Musselman's No sugar Added Natural Unsweetened Applesauce is amazing on it's own, plus you can use it to substitute for some of the oil when baking and you can make a delicious marinade for me from it. The ingredients are simply, "apples, water and ascorbic acid (Vitamin C)."
Musselman's is also an avid supporter of Breast Cancer awareness. They are donating ten cents to the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) for every package of Musselman's Natural Apple Sauce purchased in the month of January (here are some more details - and please click the "Click to give Free Mammograms" link at the bottom of their website - every click helps a woman get a free mammogram courtesy of corporate sponsors.).
