My oh my, we sure love #ApplePie! We’re celebrating America’s favorite pie all month long. But have you ever wondered … how did apple pie become so beloved?

America’s Favorite Pie

While the original apple pie recipe came from England, it rose in popularity in the states when the settlers colonized. Due to the abundance of fruit bearing trees and the ability to dry and store the fruit, apple pies rose in popularity in America.
Wholly Apple Pie
During the 1920’s the phrase “as American as apple pie” rose in popularity when it was used to describe the home making abilities of President Herbert Hoover’s wife. During the 1940’s the phrase took off during World War II, when interviewed soldiers would often say they were willing to fight for “mom and apple pie.”

Apple pie has become a symbol of American patriotism and a beloved dessert of the American people. All these fun facts leave you hungry for more? Celebrate the day in the best fashion… with a good ‘ole Wholly Wholesome Apple Pie.

WW-HealthyKidsDay

April 30th is Healthy Kids Day, but we’ve got a secret: Health is a lifelong commitment!

That’s why Wholly Wholesome is dedicated to bringing all of our wholly amazing fans the wholly delicious products that they trust. We’re focused on transparency. Here’s why you should be too!

Today, the way we eat often reflects what we care about most. We need transparency and fortunately, times are changing. Once a luxury, clean ingredients have become a given, and preservatives are not likely to make their way into our homes.

On Healthy Kids Day, take a look at the integrity of both your food and of the companies producing it. It’s time to take our power back from brands that have only provided us with more questions than answers. America’s parents know that their primary job is to fuel their children for a life free from artificiality, and the nutrition label is the perfect place to start.

  1. Take Inventory: First things first. Take a look at what you have crammed in your freezer. Is the homemade soup you made last month still worthy of bringing back to life? It’s time to make some tough decisions.

To toss or to keep? That is the question. Here’s a quick cheat sheet to help you decide:

Meat + Poultry + Seafood
Bacon: 1 month in the freezer
Chicken: 6 months in the freezer
Cold Cuts: 2 months in the freezer
Fish Fillets: 6 months in the freezer
Raw Shrimp: 6 months in the freezer

Dairy + Eggs
Block Hard Cheese: 6 months in the freezer
Block Semi-Hard Cheese: 6 months in the freezer
Milk: 3 months in the freezer
Tofu: 5 months in the freezer
Yogurt: 2 months in the freezer

  1. Eat, Recycle, Toss: Plan to eat the food that still looks healthy and toss or recycle the food that doesn’t.

Pro Tip: Take a quick look at the food containers and boxes that are recyclable and learn to reduce your environmental impact just by cleaning out your freezer. It’s as simple as that!

  1. Pie CrustMove It On Up: Now, take a deep breath. You’ve just made major headway! Re-organize your freezer so that older items are at the front and newer items are at the back. Of course, your Wholly Wholesome Pie Crusts will make their way to the front and center, right?
