Cold and Flu Season is Here: Our Top Organic Picks!

As much as we wish it wasn’t the case, cold and flu season is upon us. We know. Don’t shoot the messengers. We hear theories that staying home will help reduce our chances of contracting the flu. Others say that being out and about helps build immunities. And the theories go on. What we can say with certainty is that we have some Organic notables on our shelves that are worthy of your attention.

We love all of our Dried Fruits and it’s hard to pick favorites, but when it comes to nutrient-packed stars that may give us an extra boost during this season, we have some wholesome suggestions.

We recently launched our Organic Orange Chips and besides being fun to eat – skin and all – they’re just packed with vitamin C. Each one-pound bag of Organic Orange Chips starts with 8 pounds of fresh Oranges and each serving of these light, sweet and zingy fruits contains 110% of the USRDA for vitamin C. If you haven’t tried them yet, do yourself a favor and get some.

Besides being cute, fun to eat and versatile Organic Dried Blueberries have been referred to as a superfood by many experts for some time. During this season, it’s their levels of vitamin C, potassium and antioxidants that make them so desirable. And they’re easy to add to your diet. Eat them as a snack, add them to your morning oatmeal or toss a handful into your spinach salad at dinnertime.

We love our Organic Dried Pitted Prunes! Besides being super plump and sweet, we proudly grow them in our own orchards on land that has been in our family for generations. A relative newcomer on the list of superfoods, they’re great for you year-round, but what makes them irresistible right now is that they contain nutrients that are linked with many health benefits, including blood health and increased energy levels.

Any time of the year, any time of day, we say it’s time to put some Organic Dried Cherries on it! Nosh on ‘em, add some to your oatmeal or sprinkle them on your salad at dinnertime! And why? Beyond their great flavor, experts tell us they’re a great source of antioxidants, vitamin A, calcium and iron, which offer many health benefits, including increased energy levels when eaten in moderation.

If we’ve got your attention about how super these Dried Fruits are – you’re in for an extra treat. A treat beyond knowing that what you’re eating can help give you a boost during this season.
