MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 16, 2013

"Didn't like this as much as I thought I would. The flavor was not that great and the chips were rather bland. Might try again but make some changes (add more grapes, add more juice/orange peel, add more pears, a little less apple, and add a little lemon juice to help preserve the color of the apples and pears; and add more sugar/cinnamon to the chips)"

MY REVIEW

"I make this every year for my Super Bowl "feast". Everyone loves it! (Although, I don't put in the celery.)"
