Natures Hollow Product Review=DELICIOUS!

I was so excited to receive a package of goodies from Natures Hollow to taste and review. 

When I came home from work I found this on the front porch......

So naturally I rushed inside and opened it up as fast as I could....

It was all definitely well packaged....no chance of anything breaking during shipping.

The goodies!

We were fortunate to get to try out their Sugar Free Maple Syrup, Ketchup, Barbeque sauce, Honey Bear (honey substitute), Mountain Berry, Apricot and Strawberry Preserves.

All of their products are 100% sugar free!  They are made from a healthful blend of fruit and a natural sweetener called Xylitol. Xylitol is a 5-carbon sugar alcohol that is ideal for diabetics and those concerned about sugar intake. Unlike sugar, Xylitol has a very low glycemic index and has fewer calories.

I began planning our meal so I could try as many products as I could.  I wanted to just get a spoon and go to town all the preserves had bits and pieces of fruit in them. I could eat it straight from the jar.

I made barbeque chicken with the barbeque sauce. 

I roasted some red potatoes in the oven so that i could try the ketchup (and I'm a ketchup expert)  It was a tad bit runny but excellent flavor.

(* Update:  I heard back from Natures Hollow after posting this review and they informed me they are working on a new recipe to thicken the ketchup.  For me it wasn't really an issue anyway.)

Both products were delicious and definitely something I would try again.  Low calories, zero sugar.  What more could you ask for?

Hubby was VERY pleased.  He didn't even sit at the table to eat.  He was going to town....

Of course one of the things I was most excited about was the preserves.  I just couldn't decide which one to try.  I made some buttermilk biscuits (since we were eating all healthy with the sugar free bbq sauce, ketchup and preserves, I figured a biscuit would be okay).  We went with the Mountain Berry preserves.  

When I opened the jar I just had to eat a spoon full before spreading it on the yummy biscuit. Mmmmm....

The Mountain Berry Preserves were so delicious I couldn't wait to try the other two.  I got out the PB and made sandwiches with the Strawberry for us to eat for lunch the next day.  Needless to say it was awesome.  I normally eat strawberry jams that are packed with sugar, whether store bought, or homemade.  This was just as good.  I can't believe it is sugar free. Xylitol is a wonderful sugar substitute and I have learned so much about it since having the honor to try these products. You can read more about it and Nature Hollow's line of yummy products on their website-NaturesHollow.com

We have since been using the honey substitute to sweeten our coffee and tea and enjoyed the maple syrup on pancakes.  They are both fantastic.  I highly recommend anyone try any of their products.  Especially if you want to lose a few pounds or have blood sugar issues.
