PRODUCT REVIEW: Rigoni di Asiago organic spreads

The Rigoni di Asiago company was kind enough to send me samples of a few of their organic spreads to try. We received:

1 jar Nocciolata, an organic hazelnut spread with cocoa and milk, gluten free, no trans fat, no palm oil, no artificial flavors, aromas or colors, made with skimmed milk, raw cane sugar and cold-pressed sunflower oil.

1 jar Fiordifrutta Strawberry & Wild-Strawberries

1 jar Fiordifrutta Pink Grapefruit

1 small jar Seville Orange

2 small jars Apricot

According to the company documentation, Fiordifrutta fruit spreads are organic, and each jar contains 3 pounds of fresh fruit naturally sweetened with apple juice. They contain no sugar, and are gluten free, low glycemic index, low calories, certified NON GMO, and have many different flavors available.

So, this morning the girls and I taste-tested the spreads. We spread mutli-grain waffles with each spread and tried them out. Here are our opinions:

Nicciolata (chocolate-hazelnut spread) -- rich, creamy, chocolatey, sweet . . . a yummy treat. We all liked it.

Strawberry & Wild-Strawberries -- Very fresh strawberry flavor . . . Emily said it tasted like wild strawberries. We all liked it very much.

Pink Grapefruit -- Slightly bitter. Emily hated it. Aimie and I felt it was just okay . . . not something we would go out of our way for.

Seville Orange -- Very strong bitter taste. We all disliked it. Aimie (very bluntly) said it tasted like rotting oranges.

Apricot -- OUR WINNER! We loved this jam. Great flavor and taste. Aimie said it was the perfect blend of tartness and sweetness. We all wished we had gotten a large jar of this flavor as the two little jars were cleaned out in short order.

Final thoughts . . . I'm happy to find products made with organic ingredients without artificial colors or flavors, are processed with low temperatures and natural ingredients--and they are gluten-free for those of you watching that--just steer away from the citrus flavors.
