For a while when Middle Son growing up, the family kidded him about being Johnny Appleseed. You see his uncle never comes for a visit empty-handed and, since, he lives next to an apple orchard he brought bushels of apples week after week. Time after time listeners would hear me saying, “I can’t believe the whole bushel is gone.” Boy, did ET love my apple sweet treats–fresh apple pie, homemade applesauce, apple salad, and sliced apples with caramel dip as did everyone else in the household!
I pared, sliced, and diced a lot of apples–but no more. I still serve fresh, healthy, nutritious but a don’t pare, slice, or dice many apples anymore. You see I discovered Crunch Pak’s Party Trays, Family Size Paks, Multi Paks, Individual Snacks, nd now Salad Kitz. These are products I buy because they are wholesome and tasty. I even planned my holiday menu around them.
Idea #1: For kids with food allergies Sweet and Tart Apples w/ Caramel Dip–no need to worry about packaging, contamination, or cross contamination. All Crunch Pak products are dated and sealed. Convenient, economical, better than candy or baked goods, the four trays I sent into school for my grandson’s party brought all smiles and no frowns from adults and kids alike.
Idea #2: For the day after The Night Before Christmas, Waldorf Salad Kitz–great appetizer or light meal. This variation of Tschirsky’s signature specialty contains diced apples, golden raisins, cried cranberries, candied walnuts, pecans, and waldorf dressing. Because my guests praised its taste, texture, and flavor, I will be including this in my groaning board menu again next year.
Idea #3: For people who resolved to cut calories, Sweet and Creamy Tropical Salad–entree or dessert option great for anyone and everyone even diabetics. One four ounce serving of diced sweet and tart apples, dried pineapple, mango, papaya, candied pecans complete with dressing is ready in less than a minute. The dietary fiber, 130 calories, 0 mg cholesterol, 2 g fats in this simple, delicious dish even sates this hungry woman.
Crunch Pak is at the top of my weekly shopping list. Available in grocery stores nationwide, it’s priced right for any pocketbook.
