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.

I've had a busy summer taking care of two generations: I watch my grandchildren while my grown children work, and one of the families is also expecting and moving! My time has been spent mega-packing, unpacking, and playing with the little ones. When I win the case of Sandwich Crackers, the family will have a nutritious feast to pay back the calories expended.

Kristi says …

planning summer camps to entertain 3 kids for the summer and still have some downtime over the weekend to enjoy spending time together as a family!

Debbie says …

Eating healthy. The healthier we eat, the better our appetite for healthy food!

Carole Ramsey says …

What has built up my appetite this summer is following the progress of my nephew as he makes his way through the grueling Air Force training to be a parajumper. He has made it through basic training and is making his way through the next 9 week training.

Ana s. says …

We love the wonderful melons, avocado and peaches for summertime snacks and meals

Nancy Damas says …

My appetite is enhanced when I work in my organic garden!!! The sights and smells of the veggies and herbs make me want to run into the kitchen to start working on yet another delicious recipe--- with the ingredients lovingly planted and grown by me!

Working in the garden with the kids and then taking the produce in to either store for the winter or cook it up for breakfast, dinner, or lunch. It's the best when you hear your kids (10 and 8) say, lets go get something out of the garden for dinner. Puts a smile on your face and you know you're doing something right. :)

Amy says …

Nothing is better than hearing your kids say lets get something from the garden to eat. WE love picking the produce out of the garden and taking them in the house to make something for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, or preparing them to store.

Carmen Andrews says …

All summer organic fruit. In particular cherries and watermelon.

Stacey Melis says …

We have a 5 year old "fish" this summer- so much swimming! Always hungry for good snacks, too.

Jennifer N. says …

Tomatoes! I love fresh, vine ripe tomatoes! Tomato sandwiches, tomato pie, fresh tomato salsa and homemade spaghetti sauce. Mmmm!

Whitney Carlson says …

I've been trying to eat more veggies this summer, and I have fallen in love with spinach! I've been low on iron, so I've been throwing spinach in with at least one meal a day. I never knew how much I could like this vegetable!

Emily says …

My early morning walks always build up my appetite... Not to mention all my browsing on food blogs, which has undoubtedly riled up my hunger as well!

Miranda says …

Swimming in the backyard!

Amy Kelley says …

I absolutely love these crackers, I take down a box in just a few days by myself! Great to pack for lunches and other snacks.

Jill Pidcock says …

This summer my small family of 4 (including 7 & 9yr old boys that eat as much as their father) packed and moved to a new home, attended Extreme Sports Camp for Autism, and went back and forth to Denver several times. It has been a busy summer and we are all ready for school! Jill

Tina says …

Relearning how to create art in a body I'm not used to thanks to autoimmune. My passions are still a part of me but finding new ways to enjoy them is an adventure.

St. McDuck says …

I've worked up an appetite this summer by hanging numerous Yes on Prop 37 flyers to encourage Californians to vote to label genetically modified/genetically engineered (GMO) food this November. In fact, I almost always have something of Late July's in my pantry, since USDA Organic also means non-GMO (and their crackers are awesome).

Christine A. says …

Packing a house for 5, dog, cat, fish, organizing it all thanks to Pinterest Moving tips, running 7 miles a day to train for the CIM in December and planning our summer camping trip. Whew, that has made my super hungry for summer fruit tarts and some other tasty homemade healthy popsicles that I nave seen featured on your email blasts. Now once we move, will have the items and perhaps, time to make them.

This summer, between traveling by car with two children across the states (1800 miles one way to be exact) to visit family and being in a new enviroment (went from living in Washington State to Las Vegas, Nevada) and ruptureing two disks in my back I have not had near enough time to do what I do best, Cook. I love cooking and bakeing for my family and feeding them wholesome foods. I am addicted to my kitchen but dont always have time to spend in it, thank goodness for healthy snacks like Late July Peanut Butter Sandwich Crackers.

Sherry Aldinger says …

Sliced organic apples with Almond Butter. YUM!

amy mayer says …

I have been volunteering at a CSA organic farm once a week--that makes me super hungry!

These little peanut butter sandwich cookies are great. Marvelous peanutty flavor and tiny. You can take some in bag in your purse for a healthy snack.

F says …

I love cherries! They really are the best! So thinking about the coming of cherries always make me happy!

Cynthia says …

Going on a 4 mile power walk early each morning and watching the sun come up. Pikes Peak looks beautiful everyday. I then do yoga after my walk and finally get to eat!

Frances Chase says …

I've spent much of my available time this summer trying my hand at gardening green beans, cucumbers, tomatoes, basil, rosemary and okra. Not sure about the okra, but it's interesting. I also have millet and gourds. I get to work off the day's stress and get the satisfaction of watching life at work. The hummingbird and butterflies appreciate my planting for them as well.

anne says …

Freshly grown tomatoes from the garden which I love in salads, pasta and grilled.

Benji says …

Protein drinks or almond flour blueberry pancakes start my day. These would make a great snack.

Cynthia says …

Ramping up my jogging with my five dogs!!

Melanie Simpson says …

Summer peaches have built up my appetite for summer, along with the opportunity to try them in new recipes! I've added fresh peaches to spinach salads, greek yogurt parfaits, baked treats including scones and cupcakes, and even used them to top ice cream!

Gretchen parkison says …

We have loved going to the Children's park at the botanical gardens here in town. The kids love to get their willies out and the parents love the scenery!

Audra says …

Moving to a new apartment and getting everything unpacked and organized!

monika benitez says …

I worked up my summer appetite by chasing my kids around! Monika

martha m hodgens says …

cut up fresh organic fruit every day! alone or on cereal ,great start to the morning-mixed with yogurt for a healthy lunchtime smoothie. Works great as a snack throughout the day as the pieces are bite size. Fresh Salmon for evening meal - I spread apricot preserves on it and broil or grill. Yummie..
