I’ve been a jam aficionado most of my life. For those of you who don’t like to spread jellies and jams on toast, you’re seriously missing out. Polaner® has been making fruit spreads, jams, and jellies since the 1800s, so they absolutely understand the necessity of having that perfectly spreadable fruit on a crunchy piece of toast. Lucky for us jam lovers, the company’s Fruit & Maple premium fruit spread is now available for purchase in key markets. This product is sweetened with golden Maple Grove Farms® pure maple syrup and is available in four flavors: Strawberry, Raspberry, Peach, and Blueberry.
According to a press release, Polaner Fruit & Maple spreads pair the fresh taste of fruit with the delicate sweetness of pure maple syrup. Each variety contains four ingredients or less—except for Peach, which has five. Polaner Fruit & Maple has no high fructose corn syrup, no artificial flavors and no artificial colors. This premium line of fruit and maple spreads is also gluten free and kosher. It is available in eight ounce jars at a suggested retail price of $3.99.
This product converges on two major food trends generating consumer demand, the press release noted. First, the maple syrup is an alternative sweetener, an on-trend movement that has grown exponentially in the last few years. Second, there is a significant growth trend in pure maple syrup consumption not only due to flavor preference, but also for its budding use in recipes both at home and in restaurants, the company explained.
Polaner Fruit & Maple is versatile and can be used with appetizers, main dishes, baking, and cocktails. The product is currently available in stores across the Northeast and will be available soon in the Central Midwest and Pacific Northwest.
