About Awesome Organics!

A product is only as good as the people who stand behind it.

business here in Brooklyn, New York.

With the help of a pretty sharp research and development team, we are snack enthusiasts
(some call us "snack crazy") who come up with all kinds of flavor-rich snacks.

We know that not everything is what it seems to be. We also know that contrary to popular belief,
popcorn, cookie and chip snacks are not little nutritional demons. In fact, and hold on to your seat—
sometimes healthy snacks throughout the day can substitute for a big three-meal day.

Drink Spotlight: Snapple Sweet Straight Up Tea



Can a sweet tea also be straight up? We think so. With the great taste of fresh-brewed black tea and real sugar, there’s nothing fake about this sweet tea.









About the company

It all started in the Greenwich Village area of New York in 1972. Childhood friends Leonard Marsh, Hyman Golden and Arnold Greenburg saw more potential in fruit than just something to throw in the lunchroom. They began selling fruit drinks to health food stores, commencing the birth of Snapple beverages under the Unadulterated Food Corporation.

Fast forward to the land of putting baby in the corner, hair bands and acid-washed jeans. We're talking 1987, my friends. That's when Snapple teas were born. Snapple Lemon Tea was the first. The godfather of Snapple teas. But now Snapple produces about 70 flavours of tea and juice drinks, all "Made from the best stuff on Earth™. Snapple is known for its personality, wittiness and quirkiness – never compromising and always being different.

Food Spotlight: RW Garcia Introduces Three New Vegetable and Ancient Graincrackers



RW Garcia rolled out three new products with an extension to its popular line of 3 Seed Gluten Free Crackers. The company developed the new products after seeing increased consumer demand for vegetable-based, gluten free snacks.

“We are seeing strong demand for snacks that are both delicious as well as nutritionally rich,” says Margaret Garcia, RW Garcia co-founder and vice president of sales and marketing. “Vegetable and ancient grain snacks are topping the snacking popularity charts, so we’re thrilled to respond to this demand by adding more vegetable and ancient grain ingredients to our gluten free cracker line.”

RW Garcia is introducing three new varieties of its 3 Seed Gluten Free Crackers— Quinoa, Sweet Beet, and Sweet Pea. The company launched the original 3 Seed Gluten Free Crackers—Harvest, Kale, and Sweet Potato—earlier this year, and the products, which combine stone-ground corn with flaxseed, sesame and chia, along with flavorful vegetables, have proved popular with consumers.

The new 3 Seed Gluten Free Crackers include the following:

  • 3 Seed Quinoa (MSRP $5.49, 6.5 oz. box): The balance of the healthy, ancient grain quinoa with stone-ground corn provides a nutty flavor to the cracker that will pair well with any topping.
  • 3 Seed Sweet Beet (MSRP $5.49, 6.5 oz. box): The earthy sweet flavor and striking color of red beet, an incomparable superfood rich in antioxidants and vitamins, are blended with stone-ground corn to create a cracker that tastes every bit as good as it is nutritious.
  • 3 Seed Sweet Pea (MSRP $5.49, 6.5 oz. box): Spring’s favorite legume offers a subtle balance of sweet and salty in a crisp green cracker that delivers a dose of green vegetables in every serving.




About the Company
Over 30 years ago, RW and Margaret set out to make the best tortilla chip the world has ever known, a snack that was as healthy as it was irresistible. They invested every dime they had (and some they didn’t) and started selling chips to retailers out of the family van. Today, RW Garcia products are available throughout North America, Europe, Asia and Australia. And two generations of Garcias work in the family business.

We use only the highest quality, premium ingredients. All our products are verified non-GMO, certified gluten free and contain no additives or preservatives and are so wholesome that moms have started telling their kids to stop eating meals between snacks.

Snack healthy.

Daily Insight: Sweet Heat – Sizzle with a flare of sweet and a touch of spice



Sometimes people can’t decide what they want. In the recent past, sweet-sour combination was probably found in books because no dish or recipe of that sort existed that provided a flare of both tastes at once. However, the trends are changing and people are mixing it to come up with different recipes that are both sweet and spicy at the same time. Some like it sweet and some go for hot; now you can have two in one.

Technomic’s Menu Monitor data clarifies that spicy flavors are rapidly demanded and food producers are multiplying the production of spicy products to cater the exponential demand of sweet spicy products. Mariano Gascon, Senior Technical Director for New Products and Innovation at Gold Coast Ingredients Inc., stated that compared to the data in 2011, more consumers are accepting the fact that they prefer sweet spicy flavors in all food categories; be it a candy, ice cream or desert, people love the taste of sweet heat.





Spicy snack lovers must be aware of the product Germack Sweet & Spicy Castachio Nuts. The flavor is delicious; mixed with salted nuts, moderate spice and light sweet enables the taste to develop a unique spicy nut blend. Everyone should try this at once!




Most of you will be aware of Jalapeno and its sweet taste but the addition of a little spice brings a completely different experience for the customers; Sweet & Spicy Jalapeno, a product of Cape Cod Kettle Cooked Potato Chips is one of the most sizzling flavors of chips.





Spicy Sweet Chili Flavored Tortilla Chips, a product of Doritos, is another new entrant in the market that has shaken the traditional flavor of snacks and caused a twisty shift in the revenues. Trying this product is a must!

Snack Spotlight: Olomomo Mango Chipotle Kettle-Roasted Almonds


This flavor was featured on the Cooking Channel in 2010. You’ll love this zesty little combo of sweet, spicy, tangy, and salty. We use mango powder to give these a fresh, but slightly tart, fruit-forward flavor. The contrast of the chipotle chili powder adds a nice smoky flavor and a little burn to the experience – but it’s not too hot. Try these with a nice pale ale and you’re a happy camper. They’re unexpectedly grand with a cup of coffee, too, or on the go.

Ingredients: Almonds, Organic Evaporated Cane Juice, Mango Powder, Chipotle Chile Powder, Kosher Salt.

Drink Review: KiKi Maple Sweet Water


KiKi Maple Sweet Water® beverages offer a unique alternative to bottled water, sports drinks and other naturally hydrating beverages such as coconut water.

Made with 100% pure Canadian maple sap and natural flavours, KiKi Maple Sweet Water® offers many of the much-needed vitamins, minerals and electrolytes your body needs for hydration throughout the day.

No water is ever added! The main ingredient, maple sap, is 'filtered naturally' through the root system of Canada's sugar and black maple trees.

KiKi Maple Sweet Water® is a source of a newly identified organic acid that may have implications for diabetes and metabolic syndrome. Abscisic Acid (ABA) is a phytochemical closely related to Vitamin A that has both antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. ABA is also known to stimulate insulin release through the pancreatic cells and to increase sensitivity of fat cells to insulin. The low sugar/energy content of maple sap works with ABA to encourage insulin homeostasis.

KiKi Maple Sweet Water® Features:

100% pure Canadian maple sap

Contains only natural flavours

No preservatives or additives

Low in calories

Naturally sweet with hints of vanilla

Nutrient dense

Source of health promoting active ingredients such as prebiotics, organic acids and antioxidant​s





About the Company
Lorraine & Keith Harris are both the passion and heart of KiKi Maple Sweet Water®. They come by it honestly, through a life of pursuits including a 5-year foray as "back to the landers".

From 1977-1982, their journey was more rustic - wood heat, kerosene lamps and everything harvested from the land-everything grown at home.

Years of full-lives including family, careers and ultimately, a memory of this simpler life and rich past that brought them full circle to develop KiKi Maple Sweet Water® for the Canadian marketplace in 2009.
