This Holiday Season Make a Dish or Two that Kids Can Enjoy

Grapples Add a Twist

SELAH, Wash., Nov. 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- This December serve up Grapple® Brand Apples as a twist to the usual holiday food, especially where kids are concerned. Grapples are from Washington State, the world's finest apple growing region, with an innovative method for enhancing the natural flavor of apples with grape. A Fuji or Gala apple is bathed through a patented process, taking on the essence and mouth-watering taste of Concord grapes. The combination is outstanding, and is especially appealing to kids. 

"The holidays can be a tough time to keep kids eating healthy snacks with so much temptation on display. Because Grapples are no ordinary apple, they fit into the mood and spirit of the season- something special," said Suzanne Wolter for Rainier Fruit Company. 

Add a new twist to these favorite old-fashioned recipes by using Grapples -- kids will enjoy them.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model.

And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
