It should be no secret that I love Annies.
Annie’s takes it a step further by determining its energy uses (in its offices, manufacturing facilities, etc) and donating to NativeEnergy. Their funds go directly to the Rosebud Sioux Tribe of St. Francis Wind Farm! Their offices use a paper stock that is 30% recycled, at events they use utensils made from bioplastics, even their websites are powered by eco-energy.
Wait did I mention that you can actually “meet” the farmers that they work with?
That they are actively involved in many community giving projects?
That they offer sustainable agriculture scholarships?
That they have really cute photographs of their employees on their site?
Annie’s isn’t just talking about making a difference, or *trying* to, they’re going above and beyond the call of duty to do so!
When I was a nanny, I was able to convince the family I worked for that the kids would be better off with Annies Bunny Pasta, so they bought it. The kids ate because well, my twins loved bunnies! Score one for all natural vs. chemical foods in ”my kiddos” tummies.
Then, the twins saw Cheddar Bunnies and those square crackers became “yucky” and we needed to have bunnies everyday. Yay
Later, we discovered our Bunny Grahams and there was no turning back. Those hydrogenated oil filled cookies got pushed to the pack of the cabinet in favor of these!
Okay so the nanny partook of many Bunnies herself 😉
The nanny also fell in love with the Organic Papaya Poppy Seed Dressing
It’s light sweetness and unique flavor make any, and everything better! Seriously, if you haven’t tried it you should!
I’ll be honest and say that I haven’t liked every flavor of dressing that I’ve tried but take note that I’m not a big fan of dressing to begin with and with their many different options you’re sure to find one that makes you want to eat a lot of salad just to top it off with some dressing.
