It's still a holiday, right!?

I won Healthy Yum's carrot challenge at the end of November. There was a little "snafu" with address exchange and the site being down (it'll be back next month), but it was cleared up two weeks ago. My prize was a Musselman's gift basket and until the UPS man pounded on the door like a cop who meant business lightly tapped at 8 a.m. I forgot to expect it!

Johnny brought in a box that gave no indication of what was inside, but had this sticker affixed:

I always think of A Christmas Story when I see this sticker and have to pronounce it "frageelay," like it's Italian!

Inside the box was this beauty! I had to giggle because it's wrapped in bright Christmassy red and the card says "Happy Holidays." Inside read:

Even if I received it a little late, it's still a holiday today, right!? So, everybody please have a safe and happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, ok!?

Onto the goods! I honestly did not expect the basket to contain anywhere near this much!

Two 23 oz. jars of plain apple sauce. One is lite with no sugar added, made with 100% American grown apples. The second is all natural with no sugar added and a portion of the proceeds goes to support the fight against breast cancer.

Two 4-packs of Healthy Picks apple sauce. The flavors are blueberry pomegranate and raspberry açaí. Both are full of antioxidants because the fruit flavors and are no sugar added.

Two 4-packs of Totally Fruit apple sauce. These are peach and strawberry flavored, with no high fructose corn syrup - naturally sweetened by the fruit juice concentrate!

Two cans of Lucky Leaf pie fillings, cherry flavored and lite apple with no sugar added.

Now, I'm not affiliated with this company, I just won their products as a prize, but I have to say that is a really awesome round-up of healthy eating bonus points. No sugar added, no high fructose corn syrup, all natural, made with 100% American grown apples, and even supporting breast cancer!? I'm impressed!

I won that package from Errign, and I loved the raspberry one - and I love that they are no sugar added!
