product review. . .Mott's

i've always been a fan of applesauce - for myself and for my kids.  i try to stay to the "no sugar" added variety and label read and compare.

imagine my delight to see Mott's as a sponsor and vendor at the Style School event I attended a couple months ago.  what was so surprising to me was the Snack & Go Applesauce Pouches.  these travel-ready pouches, are only 40 calories with no sugar added. 

the twist cap make them appealing to older kids. . .as I found out when my 10 year old realized it was "just applesauce" and not some sneaky way to make him more healthy. (if he only knew!)  According to Mott's, the suggested retail price for a 4-pack of these will be $2.99 . . . a pretty reasonable cost for a healthy on the go alternative.

Mott's also had their Medleys Snacks. . .with 1 total fruit and veggie per serving 2/3 fruit and 1/3 veggie).  these little cups look and taste like applesauce with an added kick of vegetable.

while my kids aren't over the top for the Medley's (they are not flavored applesauce fans to begin with) - I keep some on hand and offer them anyway.  I think they taste great and are a great snack for me in the afternoons when my energy is sagging.

as for drinks, Mott's apple juice boxes are always a favorite around here with the kids, while I am a big fan of the Mott's Medleys Juice. (it makes a great Bloody Mary)

have you tried Mott's lately?

catch you soon -

note - i received a sample of products to facilitate this review.  as always all  opinions expressed are my very own.


  1. i hate prepackaged foods but look the other way for applesauce and fruit cups. Love that these come sugar free and don't need to be refrigerated.

  2. It's amazing how a little pouch can make an everyday snack like applesauce seem like a major treat to a toddler.
