SELAH, Wash., Jan. 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The winter blues have arrived in kid's lunches and the "same old, same old" snack time keeps showing up. So why not change up the offerings with one of mother nature's favorites, an apple that comes with a twist. Grapple® Brand Apples combine two favorite fruits - apples and grapes into one crunchy bite kids really enjoy.
Each winter Grapple® Brand Apples are at their best. They are incredibly crunchy and sweet and give off the aroma of concord grapes, which appeals to kids, and those young at heart. Kids love the combination of mixing up two favorite flavors in one bite. Parents like them too, as they give kids a healthy snack while still passing the cool taste test.
Grapples begin as either a Washington State Gala or Fuji apple. Through a complex, patented process the apples take on grape flavor and an aromatic smell from being gently bathed with an ingredient mix that is primarily grape flavor and pure water.
Worried about their nutrition? Grapple Brand Apples are as healthy to eat as any other apple. In fact the apple maintains its natural supply of vitamins, minerals, nutrients and fiber. They are not a GMO product. All ingredients are USDA and FDA approved and the process has been licensed by the Washington State Department of Agriculture.Grapple Snack Idea: Grapple Apple Rings 4 medium unpeeled Grapples, cored but left whole1/4 cup peanut butter1-1/2 teaspoons honey1/3 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips2 tablespoons dried cranberries In a small bowl, combine peanut butter and honey; fold in chocolate chips and cranberries and mix well.
