Season's Harvest-Not your Average Salsa!


Photobucket
It seems like every party I attend has chips and salsa.  Apparently, there is some unwritten party rule that says you MUST serve chips and salsa or it isn't a party!  Most people love salsa, it's an easy inexpensive addition to the food variety, so all is good, right?  Maybe.  I am actually a bit picky about my salsa, and it takes a lot to impress me.  I am a huge fan of the sweet and savory salsas, and anything with a ton of cilantro captivates my taste buds.

Seasons Harvest offers a gourmet line of salsas that will completely change the way you view salsa going forward.  I was blessed to try their Southern Borders Medium Heat Salsas Gift Set for review purposes.  This contains 4 jars:  Roasted Tomato, Apple Raspberry, Texas Black Bean Gourmet Salsa, and Con Queso Gourmet Salsa.

My husband was in salsa heaven, literally.  He opened 3 jars, and proceeded to taste each jar.  He found a favorite in the Texas Black Bean Gourmet Salsa, and was just a bit too sad when it was all gone!  I have found my all time favorite salsa and the one I will be eating from now on:  Apple Raspberry.  It was sweet and very pleasant tasting, but has a nice hot bite that hits the back of your throat as you swallow.  It is the perfect pairing of sweet and hot in my opinion.  Okay, so I love the way they taste, but I want to share why I really love them.

Don't you love knowing that you are paying for natural products instead of added chemicals, preservatives, and other items you can't even pronounce?  I know I do, and I would recommend this to anyone.  These are great additions to your Holiday meals, parties, and they come in decorative crates and boxes so they are the perfect gift for almost anyone!

    1. You are welcome, Linda. I agree on buying all natural products. Most of the products I use are fresh or natural, and I can actually TASTE the preservatives and chemicals in certain foods. So nice to just taste vegetables!

    1. I believe they have mild salsas as well. The one I was talking about has heat on the back end as it hits your throat, not so hot it burns your tongue

    1. It's yummy. The flavor is way different than anything I've had before, but the heat/sweet factor reminds me of a good Mango or Peach salsa

  7. Awesome! I love that it's getting easier to buy preservative free products now~ and they actually taste better than the mass produced stuff in the grocery store!
    Sounds like you already have an idea for Christmas for hubby!

    1. I do yes, and snack foods definitely speak his love language. I think the doctor had him pegged when he suggested he bulk up instead of lose weight. This way, he still watches what he eats 75% of the time, but a snack here and there isn't as crucial as when I am on Nutrisystem

    1. Both are nice. The Black bean is a more traditional flavored salsa, although of course it has the beans in it!

  10. My husband and I LOVE salsa!!! We love to try new kinds. We've also been making our own this summer. I have lots of cilantro plants growing inside my house now because we love lots of cilantro as well! :)

    1. I just can't tell you how much I love cilantro. IT's almost illegal how much I love it, but that's another story :D I love making my own salsa too, and often if someone brings in a jar of store bought, I ended up "jazzing it up" my way anyways. My tomato plants were a bust this year, something killed my whole crop or I would be eating homemade all the time!

  13. They look yummy and I like that they are a bit thicker vs. other salsa product.s

    1. They are, the bean is chunkier, the Raspberry thicker, etc. It makes for easy holding on the chip. Nothing worse than dripping salsa!

  18. Since going on a diet I haven't been able to really have snack foods.. organic stuff is almost always lower calorie and knowing that these taste good to boot makes me wanna go seek them out!

    1. I too am on a diet, so most of these tasty treats that you see, my family gets to enjoy. I did enjoy salsa because I can add it to food with little calories, but I feel you on not eating fattening foods!
