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.

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.

Mott's Plus Light Apple JuiceMott's describes their Mott's Plus Light Apple Juice, "is a refreshing juice specially formulated for health-conscious adults who are counting calories. And it's full of added benefits you're sure to love: Fortified with 100% vitamin C, vitamin D and calcium plus it has 50% less calories and sugar than 100% apple juice." Well, with a description like that, I decided to see what it was all about.

Serving Size: 8 ounces
Calories: 60
Total Fat: 0%
Saturated Fat: 0%
Sodium: 35 mg, 2%
Carbohydrates:15 grams
Fiber: 0%
Sugar: 14 grams
Protein: 0 grams

When I got home, I poured myself a glass and noted that this was definitely lighter than regular apple juice. Not pale - just lighter. I took a sip and was shocked to find that it tasted like ... apple juice! No off flavors, nothing funky, and it still has that slightly-thicker-than-water mouth feel. In a way, it made me think of Trop50 - the only real noticeable difference between this and real juice is appearance.

Each 8 ounce serving of Mott's Plus Light Apple Juice provides 60 calories, not fat, 14 grams of sugars and 20% of the daily value for vitamin D along with 100% DV vitamin C.
