Country Choice Organic makes great tasting organic foods from simple ingredients. All of their products are made with a minimum of 95% organic ingredients. This means they qualify for the USDA organic seal. Their line of soft baked cookies include oatmeal raisin, oatmeal chocolate chip, and double fudge brownie. They also make some sandwich crème cookies and “snacking cookies” (such as vanilla wafers, ginger snaps, and iced oatmeal cookies). Their Fit Kids line includes two varieties of instant oatmeal: chocolate chip and cinnamon toast, and caramel apple and berry blast. Each contain calcium, iron, and minerals. The whole family can enjoy their canister hot cereals or instant oatmeal varieties. According to their website, their products range in price from around $5.00 to a little under $9.00.
Organic foods were grown without the use of pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, sewage sludge, or ionizing radiation. Organic foods are GMO free. Calcium helps your body to form strong bones, and iron helps the body transport oxygen from the lungs to the cells. Their products are not gluten free, due to the possibility of cross contamination with wheat or similar grains where the products are made. They do make some milk free, non-dairy, lactose free products (but they are processed on shared equipment with dairy). People who are slightly lactose intolerant might be able to tolerate the products that are milk free, but those who have a milk allergy might not. Sign up for their E-newsletter to receive some organic food coupons and other special offers. Country Choice Organic headquarters are located in Eden Prairie, Minnesota. They have some excellent information about what organic really means on their website.
