It all began in 2014 with a "Cran Do attitude" straight out of Wisconsin Rapids, WI straight from a 4th generation family farm run by women that have been cultivating cranberries since 1873 gathered around an array of wetlands , forests and wildlife.
Honestly Cranberry growers wanted to spread the tangy taste along with their nutritional benefits year round .
Honestly cranberries are like no other cranberries they aren't sweetened with added sugars , juices or oils and they are non GMO .
They are made from one ingredient only and that is cranberries that are processed in a Primus GFS certified cream of the crop licensed facility that is allergen free .
Honestly Cranberries come from Glacial Lake Cranberries which resides West of the Wisconsin Rapids where they were produced in 1873 rapidly growing, dikes and ditches were then built around the native stands of vines.
Cranberry vines are perennials and don't need to be planted every year and they adjust to well-drained sandy soil.
Did you know that some vines are still producing at 75 years old? Now that is an heirlm crop!

I was provided with a sample of Honestly Cranberry to review and couldn't wait to add them into recipes like muffins, thick and fluffy pancakes , smoothies, salads and so much more!
I made Honestly Cranberries broccoli and kale salad with the recipe card that they sent which was super easy to make it required only a few ingredients resulting in one delicious salad that added great flavor, crunch, earthiness from the olive oil that marinated the kale and broccoli ever so perfectly with zest from the lemon juice and tang from the cranberries !
I loved the fact that Honestly Cranberries are made without any added sugars and sweeteners they provide both great flavor and texture in so many recipes especially muffins making them so plump and juicy with the perfect amount of tang to them along with juicy blueberries that pop in your mouth as you chew !
I received no compensation for this post but was provided with samples of Honestly Cranberry to facilitate this review in exchange for my honest opinions which in fact are my own.
