Free Food Fridays: Win Tree Top Apple Cider and Apple Juice! – ENDED

Tree Top uses 100% USA apples in their terrific juices and ciders. Keep reading to learn how to win and for the terrific punch (for kids!) and hot apple recipes (for parents!) from Tree Top!

Tree Top has a lot of history! Their name was chosen after founder Bill Charbonneau held a contest among employees at his apple processing plant. The company makes delicious juices and ciders but also makes fruit snacks and applesauce! Take a look at their excellent drink recipes for the Halloween holiday weekend!

For the kids: Tree Top Rotten Apple Punch, a fun and festive way to prepare them for a night of collecting goodies!

Ingredients:
•    Apple cider (at least one gallon)
•    Five 1/2-cup containers
•    Red and green food coloring
•    10 to 15 gummy worms
•    Punch bowl (or cauldron!)

Instructions:
1.    Pour apple cider into five small dishes, stopping about 1/2 inch from the top. Add 2 drops of red and 1 drop of green food coloring to each dish and stir until the colors have blended.
2.    Hang 2 or 3 gummy worms around the edge of each dish and place the dishes in the freezer. If you use more than 3 worms, the rotten apples won’t float as well. Freeze until the rotten apples are solid.
3.    Just before serving, slip the frozen wormy apples out of the dishes by setting them briefly in a few inches of warm water in your sink.
4.    Float the rotten apples in a large punch bowl filled with cider. For added creepiness, drape the gummy worms over the edges of your serving bowl. Consider adding dry ice for a fun, smoky effect.

For mom and dad: Try the Hot Apple Snickerdoodle! This easy-to-make treat uses minimal ingredients and is the perfect way to warm up those cool fall nights.

Ingredients:
•    ½ cup Tree Top Spiced Apple Cider
•    1 oz Spiced or Golden Rum (airplane bottle size works well)
•    Cinnamon stick for garnish

Instructions:
Simply warm Tree Top Spiced Apple Cider in the microwave or on the stove top.  Add one ounce spiced or golden rum and garnish with a cinnamon stick.

The Prize: Four (4) lucky winners will win one (1) bottle of apple cider or apple juice.

    I remember going to an old friend of my dad’s house and watching him press cider. It fascinated me to think that apples turned so liquid.

    My Mom & Grandma Rose were always good bakers & pie makers. So I enjoyed apple juice & pie growing up. Now my 5 & 8 yr old love apples or apple juice for a snack. We all pick apples from my in-laws apple tree. My mother-in-law makes apple butter. My husband makes apples pies with our kids.

    My funny story about apple juice is that when I was a camp counselor many, many years ago, for handicapped children, one of the two children I was responsible for was so excited when he saw that he was getting apple juice with lunch that he ran to the refrigerator and somehow managed to get it off the top of the refrigerator, and started pouring it in his mouth. Needless to say, he got it all over himself! (But it was cute at the time!)

    I drink lots of water due to my diet and meds. and i go through 6 bottles of water a day at work. I normally get it out of the water fountain at my job and it taste of clorine. This would be better and healthier for me. have always wanted to get one but didnt know if they really worked.
