Santa Cruz Organic

I am not an experienced organic eater. At all. I have eaten very few things that are considered organic. I do remember eating fresh hamburger – I mean from a cow fresh on a farm type of thing – when I went to Iowa when I was 16. That was delicious. Just recently the kids and I tried organic yogurt and that was a hit. But thanks to the Family Review Network we were able to try some more organic food. Yay!

Santa Cruz Organic sent us quite a few products for us to taste. They sent us, Peanut Butter, Fruit Spread & Fruit Sauces. Take a look to see what other things they have, Santa Cruz Organic Products.

Our Thoughts:

Now I did a video for my kids to give you the live visual taste tasting. When I got the package I was actually VERY worried with the heat. The day it arrived it was triple digit heat here in Arizona. My ice can’t make it less than a mile without starting to melt. When I opened it the peanut butter was a little runny but I immediately read the bottle and put it in the refrigerator. I couldn’t very well taste it like that.

After it hardened back up I did my own taste test on just the peanut butter. I for my entire life have been using NON organic peanut butter so I was quite curious. There was a HUGE difference too. I was impressed and shocked at the same time. It tasted like fresh peanuts but in peanut butter form. So hard to explain but it tasted REAL. In my mind all I was thinking was, “Oh this is how it’s supposed to taste”.

When it came to making a sandwich and spreading it, well, it was quite difficult – I’ll be honest. Now it could be do to my refrigerator settings or that is just the way it is. The products MUST be refrigerated so – take that how you will.

All around I like the products. I really do. But the real challenge is the kids so check out this video to see the final outcome of our Santa Cruz Organic taste test.
