Applegate Naturals Product Review & Giveaway

 *** Giveaway Now Closed ***
Congratulations to Country Cookin' Mama and Shelley!


Have you heard of Applegate Naturals?  I was so excited when I was chosen to participate in this Moms Meet campaign.

For more than 25 years, Applegate has been producing high quality hot dogs, bacon, and deli meats with only natural ingredients. “Natural” can mean many things, but when you see it on the label of Applegate deli meats, you know the meat inside is guaranteed to be the real deal. Applegate deli meats are free of antibiotics and hormones; free of artificial ingredients or preservatives; and made from animals fed a vegetarian diet and treated humanely.


Applegate Marinated Black Forest Ham is marinated in sugar and spices and prepared in the tradition of true German Black Forest hams: slow cooked with a hearty smoking. Moist and delicious, each 2-ounce serving of Natural Black Forest Ham provides 10g of protein with only 50 calories and 1.5g of fat. It usually retails for $4.99 but mine was $7.99/package here in Austin.


Applegate Natural Roasted Turkey Breast is low in fat and high in protein.  Plus, it’s free of chemical nitrites and antibiotics. But best of all, it’s delicious! It usually retails for $4.99 but again mine was higher.

Prior to this campaign I had not tried Applegate Natural Deli Meats.  Honestly, I hadn't heard of them or seen them in the store.  I found Applegate at my local Sprouts - so exciting!  So, what did I think?  I tried both the Black Forest Ham and the Turkey Breast.

 The meat I tried.

I really enjoyed them.  I thought they tasted great.  I did not notice any remarkable difference between Applegate and other deli meats but knowing that they are truly a "natural meat" is definitely a plus.  Natural meaning free of antibiotics and hormones, free of artificial ingredients and preservatives, and made from animals fed a vegetarian diet and treated humanely - who doesn't love that?  My biggest concern is not the taste, or quality - both excellent - but the cost.  Both packages of these meats retailed for $7.99 each at my local Sprouts.  That is a significant price increase from what I normally pay.  So, while I will definitely keep these in mind for the future, I would like to see coupons available and of course sales.  I really appreciate that Applegate is a natural company and is making strides and encouraging people to lead a healthier lifestyle.

 
My awesome Applegate Black Forest Ham Sandwich.

My healthy and creative tip of the day - load your sandwiches with veggies and nutrients.  I almost always eat 100% whole wheat bread and I have discovered that I love vegetables and fruits on sandwiches.  Above is my sandwich containing Applegate Black Forest Ham, organic cheese, green pepper, onion, tomato, avocado, cucumber, spinach and a touch of mayo and mustard - delicious!

Here I am enjoying it with some pistachios.
