Late July Organic Snacks

At Whole Foods Market®, we love sharing good food and drink. Whether it’s a peak-of-the-season berry, a team member creation from our bakery, sausages made in house or a new grocery discovery, we love celebrating great flavors and products. But we don’t just want to tell you about it; we want you to enjoy it too. So, we’re doing a series of summer giveaways through mid-August. Read on to find out how to enter to win.

It might be mid-August, but it’s still time for Late July! Late July Organic Snacks is on a mission to educate people about organics through their taste buds. As a family owned and operated company, they care deeply about the integrity of their products – which all proudly wear the USDA organic seal! This means they meet USDA National Organic Standards requiring that the crops are grown without the use of persistent pesticides. Those standards also don't allow irradiation, genetically modified ingredients (GMOs) and synthetic preservatives.

If you’ve ever searched for snacks for the family that meet your standards, then you’ll understand what Late July Organic Snacks founder Nicole Bernard Dawes went through years ago when her kids were old enough to start snacking. That’s when she knew she had to take matters into her own hands and recreate classic crackers and cookies with organic ingredients and without hydrogenated oils or artificial additives.

With “family” at the forefront, Late July Organic Snacks was started to create a better, more responsible food system for her children and future generations. With help from her father, the founder of Cape Cod Potato Chips, Nicole worked to create delicious snacks without compromising on the quality of ingredients — snacks that lived up to her family’s standards and likely yours too!

Learn more about Late July Organic Snacks, Nicole and her family and their passion for great snack foods in this slideshow. 

 

If you have problems viewing the slideshow, you can watch it on YouTube.

Family remains the primary focus at Late July Organic Snacks, and on any given day you can find three generations at work including Nicole’s eight-year-old and four-year-old sons. (They’re the perfect R&D team!) Impressively that strong sense of family also extends into the community. Late July Organic Snacks supports several nonprofit organizations through the sale of their products, including the Jane Goodall Institute, American Camp Association and Whole Planet Foundation.

Nicole views making food for other people’s families (like yours) an enormous responsibility. Perhaps that’s why we think your whole family will love their Mini Peanut Butter Cracker Sandwiches. You can sit back and enjoy organic peanut butter sandwiched between buttery-tasting organic mini crackers, without worrying about trans fats, artificial sweeteners, flavors, colors or preservatives – because there aren’t any! With values like those, their products can’t help but leave a great taste in your mouth.

This summer my appetite has taken a curve towards organic foods. I have taken steps to eat more healthy for me and my family. We love to share the kitchen together after we get home from work and school every night. Its a special place for us as a family to re-connect after a long day away from each other. My children and husband go discuss the day while we make dinner together. I try to find recipes for organic healthy meals for my family. We are all eating healthy now and after dinner we go for a walk or run as a family. This summer has been the best summer because some how a little trip to Whole Foods has change the way we buy food and the way we eat. So this July-August I can say that freshness, organic and whole foods has built my appetite for more healthy foods.

Fresh, organic cherries, berries, tomatoes, and melons have definitely been a substantial part of my diet this summer! While visiting Washington state and British Columbia, I took advantage of the abundance of succulent Rainer cherries, having quite a few daily. I've also been enjoying many hummus recipes, pasta dishes, skyr/yogurt, muesli, and tomato/basil/mozzarella anything!

Margie Karitas says …

I always get weekly a new box of LateJuly Organic Peanut Better Crakers (Mini's) The perfect meal for a diabetic going to the beach for the afternoon. I love this product and now my whole family eats them with me. So convenient to take anywhere. This is a complete delicious meal for me. I love lunching on this product.

I'm just starting to realize that not all food is created equal. Alot of items at the grocery store are not even real food. I would love to share this product with my family and give it a try. Thanks for bringing us a product that is "real."

What has built up our appetite this summer has been working in the gardens, veggie & flowers. Love to have a reason to get my hands dirty in the soil, with the promise of fresh vegetables and flowers on the table to enjoy. All the work is well worth it ! What a great energy boost your lil' peanut butter crackers would be, still have lot's of harvesting work to come. =)

AJ says …

Running around after my toddler son.

Kathy Missal says …

I built up an appetite this summer working outdoors, 4 days a week, at a flea market. There is nothing like being outside in the fresh air and sunshine to make you crave something healthy to eat. Living in Maine, I have access to wonderful fresh fruits and vegetables from the many organic farms we have and they provide us with so many healthy choices. ps I am a big fan of Vanilla Bean with Green Tea Cookies and just recently tried the Dude Ranch and Mild Green Mojo chips - yumm!!!

David says …

My 4 year old and 2 year old basically lives off peanut butter. Banging my head to find alternative healthy foods that they will like has become almost a part-time job/adventure. I think Late July Organic snacks, like the Peanut Butter Sandwich Crackers could help bridge the gap between what I think they should eat and what they will actually eat!

della sutherburg says …

nothing better than fresh organic fruits and veggies this time of year

Mary O says …

I have spent a lot of time swimming this summer. I've also visited the zoo with my family several times. The peanut butter crackers look lovely. I'd love to try them.

Pauline Gudas says …

Walking 6-9 miles a day has built up my appetite. I am always looking for a nutritous snack and peanut butter is a favorite!

Sarah Reyes says …

We built up our appetite as a family running in various races (mostly 5ks) in our community.

Harriet Johnson says …

Love peanutbutter and it's always a winner when we're getting ready for the fair. I even eat peanutbutter on cucumber spears because I grow my own organic cucumbers, yum, yum

Beth Ceron says …

Whole Foods' fresh and vibrant produce section builds up my appetite like nothing else. I always bring along my shopping list, but strolling through the fruit and veggie aisle and spotting the in-season local and organic offerings always inspires me! On my last trip, the avocados, fresh cilantro, serrano peppers, bright red onions, and bag of limes in your citrus section begged to come home and mingle into a fresh guacamole dip to enjoy with tortillas or on a homemade burrito, so your 365 organic black beans went right in my shopping cart too! A drizzle of 365 Mediterranean Olive Oil and pinch of pink Himalayan salt, and that cool guacamole was like a walk in a garden! : )

Colleen M says …

Learning to eat healthy and removing the "junk food" from my diet!

Patricia Buck says …

I raised my children as organic vegetarians. Peanut butter was our favorite food and still is. I would love to win your wonderful peanut butter crackers. Patricia Buck
