Big Slice Apples were first cooked in Grandma Hoerner’s farm kitchen, made from apples straight from the orchard in the late 1800s. Her grandson, Duane McCoy, inherited his grandmother’s recipe. Recalling the wonderful flavor from his youth, he worked hard to replicate her recipe, finding the perfect blend of firm apples and sweet fruit-juice sweetened sauce. Then came a groundbreaking idea: put them in an on-the-go pouch, capturing all that rich, natural goodness and flavor of Grandma’s best in an industry-disrupting package. But they didn’t stop there! Big Slice is proud to introduce 16 fantastic flavors of Big Slice pouches.
Each pouch contains ready to eat cooked apples and wholesome ingredients. Made with real fruit, all pouches are non-GMO (except Pineapple Passion Fruit), all natural, and gluten free. Big Slice are a great source of vitamin C and contain no high fructose corn syrup.
Six fantastic flavors of these pouches were initially launched into 250 Super Target locations in January. In February, they will be offered in almost all [1600+] Target locations. This is pretty amazing stuff for an American company from the heart of the Midwest, originally created by a grandson trying to recreate his grandmother’s amazing big sliced apples!
There’s nothing like Big Slice out there. And as for flavors, these are definitely unique. Flavors include: banana mango & hemp seed, blueberry pomegranate, boysenberry chocolate, cherry vanilla, cinnamon French toast, natural, pineapple passion fruit and fiber, raspberry hibiscus and green coffee extract, orange ginger, apricot, peach green tea and aloe, lemon berry, chai, peach bellini, caramel, and cinnamon candy.
The pure line— orange ginger, apricot, natural, blueberry pomegranate, lemon berry, chai, and cherry vanilla— are made with just one goal in mind; creating something simple and delicious. Amazing on Greek yogurt or all by itself, each recipe is made with pure fruit and spices gently blended together. All pouches are fat free and 90 calories or less.
My favorite was the cinnamon French toast, from the luxe line. The goodness of fresh, crisp apple cooked to perfection only gets better when it tastes like Sunday morning breakfast, especially one that I haven’t eaten in years! Made with all natural ingredients it’s a guilt free snack, with just a hint of dark brown sugar. The richness of French toast is unbelievable and tastes great on its own or over vanilla bean ice cream.
The luxe line lets you indulge in a delicious snack with rich flavors but without the guilt. Decadent and healthy, each serving is only 70- 110 calories.
I also enjoyed the fit line, which includes Pineapple Passion Fruit & Fiber, banana mango & hemp seed and raspberry hibiscus and green coffee extract. Being fit doesn’t mean succumbing to fad diets or giving up flavor. Four different varieties promote energy, power, balance, and beauty.
The fit line provides even more fiber and/or protein with the addition of hemp and green coffee extract for example.
The Banana Mango Hemp was delicious. Made with apple slices, mango chunks and hemp seeds, I could taste all the flavors in every bite. And although it was the only one over 150 calories, it provides so many great nutritional benefits; 5g of protein, 2g of fiber, 4g omega-6, and 150% Vitamin C.
The Raspberry Hibiscus and Green Coffee Extract was also one of my favorites. Made with so many amazing flavors, this combo was delicious. Each serving has 30% caffeine and it provided me with an extra boast of energy.
