Trader Joe’s Does it Again

Have I ever found anything that I didn’t care for at Trader Joe’s?  Yes, yes I have.  I was not a fan of the Creamed Honey or the Flattened Bananas.  I think those are the only 2 things.  Great thing about Trader Joe’s is that if you buy something & you don’t like it, take it back & they will give you a store credit towards your next purchase.  Can’t argue with that.  Enough about not liking things – onto my new found love: Trader Joe’s Cranberry Apple Butter.

I found this on my last Trader Joe’s trip when I was picking up some of my favorite pumpkin butter.  I just knew that I wouldn’t be disappointed.  Guess what?  I was right!  This ranks right up there with my pumpkin butter, but Mr. Pumpkin will always be #1 in my heart.  ;) 

So, how did I use this new spread?  I eat a lot of sandwiches for lunch and have grown bored with my turkey/chicken, cheese, sriracha & spinach so I tried out a new combo – roast chicken, strawberry cream cheese, cranberry apple butter, sliced Honeycrisp apple and spinach on toasted Pamela’s Gluten-free Bread.

What an awesome combination this turned out to be.  I love the crunch that the sliced apple added to the sandwich and the cranberry apple butter added a nice tart bite to it as well.  Great fall treat!

Product Giveaway: Yoplait Kids Less Sugar

MyBlogSpark & Yoplait Kids Less Sugar have come together to offer this great prize package for 2 of my readers!  Yoplait is the yogurt that I buy for Jon because not only does Yoplait call out any gluten on their labels, but they have started to label their products “gluten-free”.  Yoplait Kids has always been my daughter’s yogurt of choice….she hates chunks & pieces of fruit in her yogurt & Yoplait Kids is smooth & creamy & free of chunks.  So, this is a favorite in our house.

Information from Yoplait Kids:

Are you searching for a snack for the kids that tastes good and is good for them? Yoplait Kids yogurt is the perfect solution with 25% less sugar than the leading kids’ yogurt. With its thick and creamy texture that will hug your little one’s spoon, you won’t have to worry about a sticky mess to clean up afterwards. It also contains no artificial sweeteners or flavors, so you can feel good about serving it to your kids.

In addition, Yoplait Kids is a good source of vitamin D and, according to two new studies that provide the first national assessment of the crucial nutrient in young Americans, millions of U.S. children have disturbingly low vitamin D levels, possibly increasing their risk for a variety of health concerns, including bone problems. About 7.6 million children, adolescents, and young adults have vitamin D levels so low they could be considered deficient. It can be challenging for growing kids to get enough vitamin D because this nutrient is only found naturally in very few foods; however Yoplait Kids makes it a little easier to incorporate a delicious source of vitamin D and calcium in your child’s diet.
