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.

What’s built up your appetite this summer? Tell us in the comments below by August 26 and we’ll pick a winner at random to receive a case of Late July Organic Peanut Butter Sandwich Crackers.

What built up my appetite this summer? Running around after my 3 year old nephew and my 1 year old niece! They are bundles of endless energy, activity and curiosity. Full of questions about everything they see, touch, smell, and hear, they've kept me on my toes both physically and intellectually. If I'm the winner of a case of Late July Organic Peanut Butter Sandwich Crackers, I'll enjoy sharing a healthy snack with Hudson & Quinn...just as soon as I can figure out how to get them to set still long enough to eat it : )

The thing that builds up my families appetites in the summer is the abundance of fresh produce that we grow in our raised beds. Seeing all the wonderful ways to use what we grow inspires my toddler and fills our taste buds with happy memories!

I was sent a sample of a new flavor cracker and it tasted so good that I've been buying and recommending it to people. It's a spicy flavor which not a lot of cracker brands if any would make.

Brenda Duplantis says …

I am grateful for your products, specifically the vanilla creme filled cookies! My kids love them and since we've been trying to switch to all natural and organic foods, this has been a superb substitution for oreo cookies. They simply do not miss the sugary oreos and that makes me happy. Keep up the great work and keep sharing your wonderful products with us.

Marsha Fleming says …

I buy organic snacks for my junior high school class. They are always hungry:)

We've been bike riding like crazy with all of this great summer weather!

Bicycling on the Boardwalk!

I worked up an appetite this summer volunteering. I volunteer at the local library and for a Presidential campaign. I know Late July snacks would keep me going in a healthy way

The kids and I built up an appetite this summer managing the garden. The kids like to "help out" where they can. They loved to pick our produce. We had enough extras to share with the neighbors too.

Kristin Dwyer says …

My son will always ask for the peanut butter crackers when he sees them at Whole Foods. If he has his own cart, he'll pull them off the shelf and put them in his cart!

Rebecca says …

My husband and I have been training for a half-marathon together! We're running one in Harrisburg, PA in September, and then in Baltimore, MD in October! Running together has been great for our marriage too.Talk about working up an appetite!

Cindy Smith says …

Triathlon training and chasing around my boys, a 3 year old and a 5 month old. Lots of energy-supplying snacks required. Love Late July products!

molly says …

Running when it's cool works up my appetite for high protein vegetarian foods (like anything with peanut butter!), and trying to stay cool when it hits 100 builds my watermelon and berry cravings!

Kathy Dolan says …

When it's hot, I think refreshing flavors and nutritious meals that are easy to put together. lots of fresh veggies, mostly raw and some steamed, whole grain bread, hummus, tabouli, guacamole, nuts.

Regene R says …

I lost my job in June 21 so ive built up a REAL appetite looking for a new one!....internet searches, researching companies, emailing and calling old colleagues, online applications, phone and in person interviews- whew! Its hard work looking for work.

Linda Filer Wiley says …

Cruising the aisles of Whole Foods piques my appetite every time. The fact that I drive an hour and a quarter to my nearest helps with the job. Then I can go home and make lentil hummus from a Whole Foods recipe and scoop it up with my Sesame Late July's!

Jessy Y says …

Tomatoes! My first year at successfully growing them. (Third time's the charm.)

Challenging myself to cook meals without the oven has inspired me throughout the summer and kept me cool!

Been on-the-go happily enjoying the variety of outdoor concerts, movies and swimming opportunities around DFW. Oh, and did I mention kayaking.
