It is the season for all things sweet, rich, and indulgent. Over the last 40 years, our team at Northwest Naturals has helped create delicious, trendy, and timeless holiday flavors for incredibly creative clients. We have seen their products go from the drawing board to the store shelves, and we want to see your holiday products get there too!
A quick and yummy way to kickstart your flavor innovation is by choosing an existing juice concentrate blend. This way, you do not have to take the time to create a brand-new product, but you also get something unique. For example, our Pie Blends are the perfect way to spice up your products in time for the holidays. They bring a unique sweetness and indulgence to confections, cocktails, brews, jams, and more without the time it takes to craft something new.
Let us dive into everything you need to know about our Pie Juice Concentrate Blends.
Northwest Naturals Products Available:
Our Pie Blends are fruit-forward and accented with warm spice notes such as cinnamon and nutmeg. There are no issues harvesting the fruits for these products, so they are readily available all year round. We have:

A cherry pie-flavored syrup can elevate pancake breakfasts, simple vanilla sundaes, actual pie fillings, and caramel apples.
Apple pie-flavored granola, fruit bars, gummy bears, lollipops, and icings will be the showstoppers kids and adults can get behind!
Mix and match these suggestions and go off and make your own! These Pie Blends are beautifully versatile and can be applied to beverages and cocktails, pie fillings, candies, baked goods, syrups, and more!
