EcoMom Review & Giveaway CLOSED

CLOSED
EcoMom, a company that sells eco-friendly baby products, gave us the opportunity to review some of their organic food by Plum and Revolution. Plum and Revolution offer foods for all ages - from the high chair to the lunch box. EcoMom also has a new program called EcoPass which allows you to purchase an annual membership and provides you with a 15% discount on every order as well as free shipping (with no $75 minimum requirement). The annual fee is only $99, so if you're buying products from EcoMom regularly, it's definitely worth it!

We received several different types of food to try. As you can see in the photo, we received Organic PopAlongs (Simply Cinnamon), Organic Raisins, and several flavors of Organic Mashups (sqeezable fruit). They also sent us Episencial Better Body Butter, even though it's not food. :-)

My Take
Organic PopAlongs
First off, anything that's organic makes me happy to put it in my mouth. Also, things that are kosher make me happy (because if they're not, I can't eat them). All of the PopAlongs, raisins and Mashups are kosher. (Other Revolution Foods and Plum products might not be, so be sure to check first!) We tested the PopAlongs out on the twins a few nights back. My hubby was preparing their dinner, but they were already in their chairs and HUNGRY! They were crying and didn't want to wait any longer, so I opened the bag and prayed it would distract them. It worked. :-) I handed each a PopAlong, and it was so cute watching them explore this new food. The both looked at it really hard and tasted it with their tongues a few times, just to make sure it was ok. Eventually they started taking tiny bites until the whole chip was finished. Apparently they liked it, so Mommy tried one...and she liked it too. I really like that they're popped and not fried, so a serving size is only 100 calories (and 3g of fat). Great for Mommy who doesn't want to gain 50 lbs this pregnancy! It's made with 100% Organic whole grains, and there are also no trans fats, no high fructose corn syrup and no artificial ingredients. It's also made from oats, rice and corn, but no wheat. They are *so* much better for you than potato chips, and they're actually better tasting too!

Organic Raisins
The Organic raisins taste just the same as regular raisins, but they are better for you. They are plump and juicy, and you get a whole serving of fruit in the single-serve box. These raisins are grown in California, and of course have no trans fats, no high fructose corn syrup and no artificial ingredients (since they're just raisins). :-) There is no easier way to get a serving of fruit than a box of raisins, and my hubby likes them.

Organic Mashups
These Mashups are not your typical baby food, because they're actually for kids! They're made from 100% Organic fruit, are unsweetened and gluten free. They also have no trans fats, no high fructose corn syrup, and no artificial ingredients (just fruit!) They're really ideal for kids' lunchboxes and on-the-go snacking. I think it's a really fun way for kids to get more fruit, and at only 50-60 calories per pouch, Mom can eat it without feeling guilty. :-) They're also freezable and have resealable caps. We put the Strawberry Banana flavor to the test, and I must say that I was quite nervous about it being unsweetened. But, then again, when I eat a strawberry or a banana plain it's not like I pour sugar over it first, right? Anyway, it was delicious and naturally sweet. I loved it, but the twins were more into sticking their fingers in it (I put it in a bowl for them and gave them spoons...ha, yeah right, Mom!) In either case, I would totally take one for lunch. What a better way to get fruit than in a "smoothie"? That's exactly what it reminded me of, a small serving of a fruit smoothie. Yum! Our babysitter tried the Grape flavor, and she agrees that it tastes like a smoothie. She's not used to things tasting very sweet, and she said that it's not too sweet even for her. She also really likes that because it's not a juice you don't have to worry about spilling it everywhere.

Price: These prices do not include shipping.
Overall: I give EcoMom's Organic foods a 9.5/10 for excellent taste at an "ok" price point, although some products aren't yet kosher.
