A bit too sweet
on June 30, 2010
The concept is great. My concern is how sugary they are. "No sugar added"- true....sorta. They use concentrated apples which is effectively adding sugar, just not the heavily processed variety.
At just over 3oz, each pouch has 12.3g of sugar. Granted that's not a whole lot, but I've been seeing more and more of this type of thing pop up. They tout it as no-sugar-added but they'll stir in a ton of concentrated pear or grape juice which is loaded with sugar! Fructose or glucose, it's all the same in your bloodstream.
We've been giving our daughter unsweetened applesauce and now tasting this stuff it's dramatically more sweet. If you don't want your children to have sugar/get used to sugary tasting foods, then this is not the applesauce for you.
Otherwise, the product is fantastic. I'd just like to see a more natural tasting version.
