Frequently, Our Daily Green encourages cooking from scratch and offers tips and recipes to do just that. However, that's not always realistic or feasible in our fast-paced world. Far too often, families rely on take out or convenience foods. What is so exciting about the Applegate line of foods is the convenience and peace of mind. Applegate's transparency is impressive; a consumer can check where their food was raised via the Applegate site and their UPC number.
Our shipment included a wide array of their newest products, including:
- Gluten-Free Chicken Breast Tenders
- Homestyle Chicken Breast Tenders
- Grilled Chicken Breast Strips
- Southwestern-Style Grilled Chicken Breast Strips
- Organic Uncured Thick Cut Bacon
- Barbecue Chicken lunch meat
- Uncured Cooked Capicola Ham
Salt, Honey, Potato Starch, Sugar, Carrageenan (From Seaweed), Tomato Powder, Potassium Chloride, Onion Powder, Garlic Powder, Yeast Extract, Natural Mesquite Smoke Flavor, Capsicum Extract, and Mustard Extract.
The frozen chicken tenders both Homestyle and Gluten free were a fabulous alternative to the factory farmed fused chicken leftover parts that frequently graces the plates of children's lunches. Again it was so flavorful that no additional condiments (which are laden with sodium and fat) were needed to enjoy this chicken. It is comforting to find so many allergen free products as more and more sensitivities are discovered.
As an additional side note, we are very impressed with Applegate's overall commitment to socially responsible business, as the press kit they included with their products was in a folder from ReBinder (another company we have worked with and endorsed in the past).
Our Daily Green kudos to Applegate for consistent messaging!
In accordance with FTC disclosure laws, Our Daily Green received our samples from Applegate free of charge, but we also have been an Applegate customer for many years which is why we asked for the opportunity to try their latest products. We highly recommend their line of frozen meats and cold cuts.
