**New snack alert**
I think I’ve mentioned, probably millions of times, that I’m constantly looking for healthy, on-the-go, snacks for me and my babes. The struggle I come across is finding snacks that are minimally processed, healthy, easy to eat in the car, but not too messy. Yes, lots of requirements. I might live in a dream world but why not have high expectations?
Applesauce pouches are one of our go-to snacks. They are easy, relatively clean, and relatively healthy. I don’t eat them too often though because…I guess they’re a little boring? And that’s what I love about Big Slice: so much variety!
Big Slice Apple’s
Big Slice is kind of a more sophisticated take on traditional applesauce. Applesauce is great, but Big Slice takes it to the next level. Big Slice uses non-GMO apple slices (like, actual apple slices) with pure whole fruits and superfoods like Blueberry Pomegranate, Banana Mango and Hemp Seed, and Raspberry Hibiscus and Green Coffee Extract (just to name a few).
The apple’s are slow cooked (kettle, to be exact) so they’re delicious, juicy, AND chunky. All the yummy things! A few important things to note…Big Slice apples are:
- Not made with artificial ingredients
- Made (and sweetened) with real fruit and superfoods
- Non-GMO (which is awesome). ((Side note: Pineapple Passion Fruit is excluded from this))
- Naturally fat free
- NO HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP
- 100% USA grown apples..which is really great!
- All around 100 calories
- Easy to transport AND eat out of…they come in a nice little pouch.
They also come in a bazillion different flavors. They break down the flavors by category: Pure, Fit, and Luxe.
The Pure line contains flavors like natural (yep, just apples), Cherry Vanilla (my fave), and Blueberry Pomegranate. The Pure line is made to be simple, yet delicious. Just a light, healthy snack.
Next up is Fit. The flavors in the Fit category promote energy, power, balance, and beauty. A few flavors are Banana Mango and Hemp Seed (there’s your superfood), Pineapple Passion Fruit and Fiber, and Raspberry Hibiscus and Green Coffee Extract. These pouches are great as a post-workout snack..or even pre-workout!
Finally, they have the Luxe category. The idea behind this line is to provide flavors that are more decadent, yet still healthy. Currently, the only flavor in Luxe is Cinnamon French Toast (yum) but they are coming out with more flavors like Peach Bellini, Boysenberry Chocolate, and Caramel (just to name a few).
I had the Cinnamon French Toast pouch tonight as my dessert and it was amazing. They nailed the french toast flavor!
Tons of different flavor combinations which makes these delicious and a lot of fun.
These are super easy to take with you and eat in your car (if you have to), or pack with a lunch to work, or eat after your workout. They are also an easy way to spice up an otherwise boring meal/snack at home. You can add them to yogurt, oatmeal, on top of waffles or pancakes, or with cottage cheese. They add the perfect amount of sweetness to cottage cheese or plain Greek yogurt!
These are not technically made for children. You see a lot of squeeze pouch applesauces out there and some are made for babies (you will find them in the baby aisle) and some aren’t necessarily (find them next to applesauce). These aren’t technically made for kiddos, but my kids are old enough that these make a great snack for them!! They’re absolutely soft enough even for my 17 month old. They taste amazing so my 3 year old, the picky one, will actually eat them!
Big Slice-The Company
Big Slice gives a portion of the purchase of each pouch to the Sparkle Foundation, an organization that supports women and girls in need. The Sparkle Foundation supports girls/women who need a little extra love and support in their lives. I think it’s awesome that Big Slice donates to a charity of their choosing. In my opinion, that speaks incredibly high of the people running the business.
