SELAH, Wash., Sept. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Each year parents are challenged with the task of making lunches that are both healthy and something that kids will actually eat. This year there is a treat that tastes and smells like pure indulgence but has all the goodness that Mother Nature provides. Coming to stores straight from the orchards of Washington state in October are Grapple® Brand Apples. These delightful apples offer a unique healthy twist on classic apples; they "crunch like an apple and taste like a grape"™. For kids, that's worth talking about at lunchtime.
The easiest way to change a child's eating habit is not with lecturing but by introducing tasty, healthy foods into their diets that they like to eat. After all good eating habits keep a child's mind sharp and ready to learn all day. Parents love Grapples® because they are healthy and easy to pack; children love them because they taste and smell great. A little intrigue goes along way with kids.
Grapple Brand Apples take two favorite fruits- apples and grapes and unite them into one crunchy bite. Grapples begin either as a Washington State Gala or Fuji apple depending on the season. 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.
The process of making Grapples does not add any extra sugar, calories, carbohydrates or anything else; in fact the apple maintains its natural supply of vitamins, minerals, nutrients and fiber. They are not genetically altered in any way. All ingredients are USDA and FDA approved and the process has been licensed by the Washington State Department of Agriculture.
Everyone knows that it is so important to pack a healthy lunch that provides the mind and body with essential vitamins and nutrients. The difficulty is in finding healthy items that kids won't throw away. Fortunately Grapples are cool with their yummy taste and Concord grape aroma.
Grapple Brand Apples are widely available in grocery stores nationwide from October through May. They are sold in a 4-pack clamshell with an average MSRP of $3.49-5.99 or in a 4-pack poly sleeve with an average.
MSRP of $2.99-$3.99. To find a store that carries them or to order online visit http://www.grapplefruits.com.
