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.

Doing a major garden overhaul this summer has rally worked up my snacking appetite.Helping my sister AND my son move these last few months has added to the snaking-time,too. I love Late July products. Their cookies and crackers are so good.

stuart says …

I've started swimming for 33 minutes daily at a pretty moderate clip. Great exercise. And it makes me hungry, hungry for some tasty organic snacks.

Karen says …

Yard work, lots and lots of yard work has built up my appetite. Weeding, mowing, trimming and turning compost (gently so as not to disturb the frogs living in the bin!).

Angela G A says …

Moving cross country has kept our appetites up this summer--packing, moving, and now unpacking! We have needed lots of energy.

Yvette says …

My husband and I joined a Wellness program at a gym and rehab center in June. We've been going 3-4 X/ week or more for an hour to hour and a half doing weight training and cardio. I had knee and foot surgery in Feb. and hurt my "good knee" doing physio at another place, so it hasn't been easy. We are trying to eat healthier products and would love to give Late July Organic Snacks a try.

Stacey says …

Swimming!

hari says …

Mowing, weeding, cutting branches, makes me famished and I gobble down everything in sight, hopefully it's the healthy stuff......!

Cheryl Rech says …

Working with kids all summer at Gymnastics camp. Running around all day with pre-schol kids all day definetely works up an appetite for healthy organic snacks to eat on the go!

Jodie Franks says …

I've worked up an appetite doing yardwork and landscape maintenance and projects. There's nothing like fresh air, sunshine, and physical exertion to make you hungry.

Jim Hayes says …

Working out everyday builds up my appetite

Ann Bowman says …

Sounds like a product we would enjoy. We try to buy organic healthy snacks as much as we can, so we can feel healthier as well as enjoy the snacks.

Sara G says …

Actually, more exercise has built up my appetite!

S. K. says …

It's been a very hot summer and food that requires minimum stove or oven time has been the way to go at our house.

laura says …

fasting 16 hour days for the month of Ramadan REALLY helped my family to work up an appetite...I've never seen my girls eat so well!!

Teresa Mattson says …

My husband was told he had to stop running due to a knee injury. Instead of moping around we started a new family activity of biking almost on a daily basis. We have always biked, but now we even bike to the store when we only need a few items. This clearly works up an appetite. So now, weather permitting, we started "bike to dinner Fridays"! The kids love it and it's fun finding a restaurant we have never been to that offers healthy choices. Living in Minneapolis gives us plenty to choose from and wonderful bike trails. We'll be sad when the snow flies...can you cross country ski to dinner?

cynthia says …

We tried Late July crackers this summer, and they were so delicious. Can't wait to get some more!

Lindsay Seslar says …

introducing new flavors and foods to our son has built up our appetite and his too!! i love exploring new recipes and sharing them with the family!

Annie says …

We've worked up our appetite this summer doing a lot of swimming and gardening! My four year old really blossomed this summer into quite the helpful young lady!

Sandy says …

Summer on the beach! Days spent playing in the water are a ture joy of the season, Nothing builds hunger in my kids like swimming, diving, and splashing in our local pond. We adore Late July snacks and keep them handy when it's time to refuel.

Alex says …

What builds my appetite this summer? Teaching my niece and nephew every Sunday how to tend to a garden and why organic food is so much better for you. They are seven and ten, and every Sunday they don't drink any soda! Not voluntarily, but one day without soda is better than zero. When we're not watching the kids, were cutting, spouting, and stacking wood for ourselves, my mom and dad, and my grandma. When I say we, that's my best friend Cory, and we get hungry!

Jennifer says …

We work in a resort town so basically you work a round the clock 4 months a year! If that doesn't build up your appetite nothing will! I look forward to slowing down and eating better!!

Cynthia Bottoms says …

It was such a hot summer that "working up" and appetite was tough to do. But as I'm always trying to fill my appetite with healthy foods I try to incorporate that into my vacations. This year was visiting the earth-beautiful farmlands and vineyards in Loudoun County Virginia, went to a delicious farm to table restaurant:Market Table Bistro, WOW, YUM. I could have packed up a ton of gorgeous fruits. Some of us are so lucky to have the availability of fresh fruits and vegetables while others have nothing. Summer is a special time of year and thus a fitting name for a company who recognizes the responsibility and caring to give back. So in their giveaway, I would give away also, and when I win I would donate my case of Late July Snacks to an organization in the Appalachian area that feeds and helps folks who are not as lucky as I to be able to eat as I need, never mind to eat healthy! I know they would be so thrilled to receive this, so please don't be insulted that I would give away your presant. Thanks so much for being a company with a heart. Gratefully yours, Cynthia

michelle says …

My family's appetite gets built up by going down the shore. All that swimming and playing in the sun always gets us super hungry for some delicous snacks. Having healthy options is important for me and my three young children

Leanne says …

Tending to the garden this hot, hot summer has worked up our appetites. Can't wait to make some more fresh salsa!
