WIN-It-Wednesday: Pacific Natural Foods Cranberry Sauces

Halloween is here! And to me Halloween is the “official” start of the Holiday Season… my favorite season of the year! I love the holidays since they are full of comfort foods, good memories and family get-togethers.

But sometimes those comfort foods end up not being very healthy and are full of things like corn syrup, additives, preservatives and artificial sweeteners. It’s funny how being gluten or allergen-free awakens you to the ingredient labels of the products that you eat. Since becoming gluten-free I found that I really scrutinize and question every ingredient on the label… not just the ones that contain gluten.

That is why I am a fan of Pacific Natural Food products. I love that they use wholesome, all-natural and organic ingredients. Plus they make it easy for those with food allergies or Celiac disease to easily understand and read their product’s labels. They also have an easy to read chart on their website that lists each of their products allergens. No guessing. No searching. Just simple basic info right at your computer keyboard or Smartphones fingertips.

Pacific Natural Foods makes two varieties of Cranberry Sauce – a jellied and a whole berry – both Thanksgiving holiday favorites.

One of the biggest difference between Pacific Natural Foods Cranberry Sauces and other brands is that there is NO HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP in the Pacific Natural Brand Cranberry Sauces. The only ingredients in Pacific Naturals Cranberry Sauces are: Organic cranberries, organic cane sugar and water. That’s it.

Pure and simple goodness.

I also like that Pacific Natural Cranberry Sauces come in BPA-free packaging and no can opener is required to open and enjoy.

Buh-bye ridged-tin-can-shaped jelly cranberry sauce! It’s been nice knowing ya… but I’ve found a new saucy holiday favorite. =)

    Thanksgiving, any dessert is always the best part of the meal. Especially moms apple pie sadly a memory due to celiacs.

  2. Francine Says:

    I remember my mom getting out her grinder, fastening it to the table, and making the stuffing for the turkey. Waking up to the smell of turkey in the morning is another wonderful memory.

  3. Cara Says:

    My favorite memories are staying up late the night before to cook with my sister.

  4. Cilyn Myers Says:

    My favorite memory is waking up to a white world and driving to my grandmother’s house for Thanksgiving in the snow! The windows in her house got all foggy from the heat and steam coming off the turkey and other good eats.
    The reason this is so special to me is that I live in the desert where it very rarely snows.

  5. Katheryn Says:

    My Mom made every holiday the best. Her love made everything she made taste great.

  6. Melissa Says:

    my favorite Thanksgiving memory is learning how to make Thanksgiving dinner from my mom and grandmother

  7. Theresa Gates Says:

    my favorite memory of thanksgiving is frog eye jello. which of course is just tapioca in green jello. Never would eat it, still won’t but that jello was at every thanksgiving I can remember that grandma was at.

  8. Kathleen Reale Says:

    Theresa- I never heard of Frog Eye Jello before… It sounds perfect for Halloween too!

  9. tomi Says:

    One of my favorite memories is one that I tell often. One year I forgot to buy a turkey until just before Thanksgiving, so I decided to go nontraditional and change things up a bit. For the main course instead of turkey I fixed Cornish Game Hens; and called them personal sized turkeys… I lost my holiday cooking privileges, from that day forward my Son has cooked the holiday meals. And did I argue, no way! He’s a great cook and goes all out for the holidays.

  10. Kathleen Reale Says:

    Love this story, Tomi! =)

  25. Venessa Says:

    My favorite recipe is my mom’s sweet potato casserole, yum!

  26. Linda Williams Says:

    Every Thanksgiving my Mama asked me if I wanted white or dark meat. And every year I said I wanted a turkey sandwich with dressing and cranberry sauce. Mama always answered me by saying that I could have the sandwich for supper but not Thanksgiving Dinner. What’s nice is now I don’t wait for Thanksgiving, I use cranberry sauce all the time with a chicken dinner.

  27. Susan Says:

    Memories of getting up early and preparing a wonderful meal for family and friends.

  28. Patricia Says:

    My favorite memories of Thanksgiving was the turkey and all the trimmings….Mom’s cornbread stuffing, which I now make gluten free; and my Dad and Uncle watching football on a full tummy and falling asleep in their chairs. In the evening, we started on the leftovers. Precious memories.

  29. Christina Says:

    Thanks for another chance to win. We all love cranberries at my house! Fresh, frozen for quick use in scones, and canned with our Thanksgiving fixings. When I get turkey other places and am not sure if the gravy is gluten free I use just cranberries on my turkey instead of gravy. Tasty!

  30. cindy w. Says:

    I love when my children and I share what we are thankful for at the dinner table on Thanksgiving.

  31. Katie C. Says:

    My daughters love making Autumn shapes out of slices of cranberry sauce….they use cookie cutters in the shapes of fall leaves, pumpkins, turkeys, etc. and display them on a platter for everyone to enjoy on turkey day.

  32. patricia Says:

    Other than watching the parade was looking forward to eating turkey and all the trimmings. I love the cranberries in a salad.

    Hmmm …. Cranberry sauce. I love this berry sauced all year long with any white meat. I use this company’s condensed soup products; which I think are wounderful. I would love to try this product and will look in stores for it. 🙂 thank you.
