Santa Cruz Organic Review

I don't try overly hard to buy organic products, but I have found a great company that sells organic products. Santa Cruz Organic sent me a box of their great products. I received Dark and Light Roasted Peanut Butter, four kinds of Fruit Spread, and two different kinds of Fruit Sauces.

I've enjoyed using these products in my lunches. I have a feeling school-aged kids would love these products in their lunchboxes too! Whether it is a peanut butter and fruit spread sandwich or just a cup of a fruit sauce to go with their favorite sandwich, they'll love it. My wife enjoyed mixing the fruit sauces into her oatmeal for breakfast too. My four year old son asked for a peanut butter and apricot spread sandwich for dinner the other night. It's never bad when kids ask for healthy foods!

Santa Cruz Organic announced new products this summer for the ultimate lunch box solution:

Organic Fruit Spreads – just launched in four flavors: Strawberry, Apricot, Seedless Red Raspberry and Blackberry Pomegranate; fruit is the first ingredient in each jar for a rich, home-style texture.

Organic Fruit Sauces – new flavors are Apple Peach and Apple Tropical; 4-ounce cups are ideal with 100 percent daily vitamin C.

Organic Peanut Butter – not new, but the perfect complement to the new fruit spreads. PB&J will never be the same again. PB is available in both dark and light roast, creamy and crunchy.

All of Santa Cruz Organic’s products are certified organic, do not contain high fructose corn syrup, artificial ingredients or preservatives and are manufactured entirely with renewable energy from a variety of sources, including on-site solar energy and renewable energy certificate purchases.

I was impressed by the following statement from their web site:

Each year we buy enough renewable energy to produce our entire line of products, and we are an official Green-E certified business. We've even reduced the waste that we create, recycling an amazing 96% of our refuse, which earned us a prestigious WRAP award.

This isn't something you hear about often. I think this is something they should be very proud of! Other products they offer include Dessert Toppings, Juice Drink Boxes, Juices, and Teas.

If your kids complain about boring lunches, maybe you should give Santa Cruz Organic a try!
