Musselman's Healthy Picks: Review & Giveaway -- CONTEST CLOSED!

CONTEST CLOSED!


Our family was blessed to to asked by Musselman's to try out their new Healthy Picks line of products and we gladly accepted!

We received 3 samples of Mussleman's Healthy Picks, their newest applesauce flavours, Raspberry Acai, Blueberry Pomegranate and Key Lime Cupuacu. Even the names sound healthy!

What are Healthy Picks?

From the website:
Healthy Picks is Mussleman's newest product line of apple sauce designed specifically for people with active, healthy lifestyles.
Three delicious flavors, chock full of nutrients and amazing superfruits: Raspberry Acai, Blueberry Pomegranate and Key Lime Cupuacu.
Mussleman's newest apple sauce is made without added sugar and is a good source of fiber, calcium, vitamin C and antioxidants. Best of all, it tastes great!

As a grower owned cooperative, Musselman’s growers take special pride in providing only the highest quality apples for their products. When combined with the other product benefits mentioned, you can see why we are so excited about the quality of our apple sauce!


Review Daddy dove right in to the Key Lime Cupuacu (pronounced coo-pwah-su). Key Lime is a particularly favourite flavour around here! It doesn't disappoint!
There is bit of sharpness from the lime -- and the texture is marvelous -- thick with tiny chunks of apple and rich. Sweet, too! But there is NO sugar added at all!

We all love this flavour. Mike used his second cup of it to top crackers and cheese! You might not have thought of it, but it's a great snack.
Next, we tried the Blueberry Pomegranate -- my very favourite of the new flavours! The sweet aroma of the blueberry hits first, enticing you to take that first bite. The combination of blueberry and pomegranate is brilliant. Sweet with a hint of tartness... lovely colour... oh, yeah... this is my favourite of all!
Last but not least, we tried the Raspberry Acai. None of us are big raspberry fans, but we did like this!
It had a lovely flavour. The raspberry was not too over-powering. To me, it had the sharpest flavour of all. Tart and the sweetness was more subdued.
Later, I tried a couple of tablespoons over some vanilla ice cream and that was pretty good, too!
Liz liked it best right out of the cup.

Every flavour is blended perfectly. No one flavour over-powers the other. Balance is the key and Mussleman's has perfected it in these applesauce combinations.

Mussleman's is to be commended to their committment to making healthy products.

The wonderful folks at Musselman's are offering one lucky reader of Gathering My Roses a chance to win a sampling of the new Healthy Picks Applesauce Flavours and a neat little tote bag (perfect for carrying fruit)!
