Well, the holidays are officially upon us~ like, not just upon us, but..here! And if you’re not in full-swing menu planning mode yet, you will be within the next week or two for sure!
When you think about holiday desserts, the first thing that comes to mind is what I like to call “The Typical Top 3”. I’m talking about 1. Apple Pie, 2. Pumpkin Pie and 3. Christmas/Holiday Cookies! And trust me when I tell you..I love ALL 3..lol! However~ I also love jazzing things up a bit in the dessert department and at least offering something new and exciting each year, something that will keep people talking even after the day is done.
And this year, that dessert honor goes to these adorable and tasty baked apple pies!
I’m talking about a fresh, sweet, baked-until-tender apple, filled with a beautiful medley of “Razzle Dazzle” flavors that will razzle and dazzle all of your guests! Lucky Leaf not only has the BEST apple pie filling and topping around, but they also offer an amazing Premium Mixed Berry blend of the best, and most beautiful berries as well!
Each berry-filled, stuffed apple is succulent, with just the right amount of sweetness. You’ll notice that all of Lucky Leaf’s pie fillings and toppings are never too sweet, the fresh flavors shine through and never need to be masked with too much sugar. When paired with a tender baked apple and a whimsical topping of pie crust, you have yourself individual desserts that will dazzle your entire crowd one bite at a time!
The quality of the filling is beyond compare, and the best in the biz hands down! Lucky Leaf has been a proven, leading brand for a super LONG time, so you can feel good about what you feed your family and friends!
What We’re Made Of
What do you call a grower-owned company who made its name by making high-quality easy-to-use dessert products? Lucky Leaf, that’s what. Since 1949 we’ve stayed true to our mission of providing bakers with simple, delicious products to make their lives a little easier.
At first, we focused on Lucky Leaf Apple Sauce. As times changed, and the world started moving at a faster pace, people stopped having time to make pies from scratch. That’s when we decided to step in and help. To take care of the apple-peeling hand aches, we started producing ready-to-use apple fruit filling. In no time, it hit the shelves and good ol’ apple pies were back in the oven.
America’s appetite for Lucky Leaf grew, so we expanded our line of flavors. Today you’ll find Premium Cherry, Apple, Blueberry, Peach, Lemon, Red-Raspberry and many more in your grocery store.
60 years later, we still say “make it easy, make it delicious, make it with Lucky Leaf,” and we’ll continue to improve and expand upon our customers’ needs for years to come.
The Lucky Leaf Label History
Although rare, you may have spotted the original four-leaf clover Lucky Leaf label at one point in your life – perhaps in your grandma’s kitchen when you were a kid. Since the original 1949 design, the label has gone through three additional changes to keep the brand as fresh as its fruit fillings.
