Polar, which is odd because they make fruits, vegetables, seafood, snacks, drinks, among other things. Either I haven't been paying attention all my life or the brand is fairly new or new to my area. Anyway, what initially caught my attention was these cute little glass jars sitting on the shelf. They were filled with fruits like Fuji apples, mandarin oranges, strawberries, mixed fruit, etc. in light syrup and they were only $1 each for a 10 ounce jar. I was trying not to spend too much money this particular shopping trip so I opted to just get myself one jar so I went with the Fuji apple as I normally don't see canned or jarred apples unless they are meant for baking. I figured I'd keep the jar after I ate them since it was so cute and use it for something else such as holding spare change, small office supplies, craft supplies, jewelry, etc.
I've eaten other brands of mixed fruit, peaches, pears, and mandarin oranges in light syrup before but never an apple. After trying the Polar Fuji Apple in the glass jar, I really didn't care much for it. I don't think it had anything to do with this particular brand, I just think that being in the light syrup, it took away from the taste and crispness of the apple as it was really kind of mushy and I love my apples nice and crisp. Actually, I like all my fruits to be on the crisper side, even my bananas. It's a consistency thing. Anyway, I got a cute jar out of the deal and maybe next time I'll try a different kind of
Polar fruit. The mandarin oranges looked really yummy and that's one fruit I don't mind eating mushy (well that and berries).
