I’m a toast and jam kinda girl. It’s a great snack when I’m craving something sweet. I’ve made the switch from bad for you jelly’s and jams that are jam packed full of sugar, high fructose corn syrup, corn syrup and other artificial sweeteners our bodies do not need. Sugar free seemed the way to go until I learned of Crofter’s Organic. Here is a bit about the company:
“Crofter’s Organic has been making organic fruit products on the shores of the Georgian Bay in Parry Sound, Ontario, for 20 years now. We produce an extensive line of organic fruit spreads, conserves and jellies that are distributed in both natural and conventional channels throughout the U.S. and Canada.”
I was sent a few coupons to try the Crofter’s Organic Superfruit Spreads so I had to run out to Wegmans and try this out. Superfruits are fruits which combines exceptional nutrient richness and antioxidant quality. It must be popular because all varities but two were sold out. That’s a good first impression of a company I just learned about! On the shelf was Crofters Organic Superfruit Europe. The flavor? Black currants and Pomegranates with Morello Cherries and Red Grapes. Sounds delicious doesn’t it? You bet it is. A jar of fruit packed with yummy deliciousness and so much flavor. Pomegranates are rich in vitamin C and packed with antioxidants, while black currants tend to be tart but the tartness balances out the pomegranate’s sweetness. Every ingredient packed inside is good for you. Organic fruits, fair trade cane sugar and natural fruit pectin. And at only 30 calories per serving you can’t go wrong.
The next flavor I tried was North America which is a blend of Wild Blueberries and Cranberries blended with Morello Cherries and Red Grapes. I’m really glad this was in stock as I’m a huge blueberry fanatic. This stuff is amazing. A little sweet but not to much it makes you want more. I’ve used this on my sandwiches, toast, crackers, a drizzle in my oatmeal and I cannot wait to use this with my holiday baking this year for cookies. Again, made with all natural goodness. Wild blueberries are on the top of the list of antioxidants out there. Antioxidants are wonderful for our bodies and may lower our risk for certain diseases and our overall health.
My thoughts on both of these flavors….delicious, mouthwatering and the perfect amount of sweetness mixed with some tart. I love how easily this spreads and the bits of fruit inside. It makes it a little chunkier. If you look closely you can see the fruit. You know just from the taste and look that it’s natural. You would think from the taste this is very expensive but in reality it’s not. For the taste, the ingredients, low calories and no fat you can’t go wrong. This is the real deal..no fake tasting stuff in this. Just out of this world flavor that will keep you wanting more.
Besides, the two flavors I tried you can also purchase Asia which consists of yumberries and raspberries, or South American which Maqui berries and passionfruit. Exotic sounded? Yep and I cannot wait until it’s back on the shelves. Crofter’s Organic sell other varieties of spreads and jams. So look for Crofter’s Organic next time your out shopping!
