Suzanne’s Specialties Apricot Rice Nectar Spreadable Fruit is an above-average fruit spread that can be applied to toasted bread, bagels and even on waffles as an alternative to butter and syrup. It’s a smooth spread, devoid of any fruit pieces, so it’s easy to take a knife and remove some of the spread from the jar and put a smooth layer of this spread on top of something. It was a bit peculiar not to see any pieces of apricot in this spread since the name of the product could be interpreted as having actual pieces of apricot in the spread. Not having any slices of apricot didn’t negatively impact this product though. What was nice was how this spread wasn’t watery. It was thicker than most jellies that are sold in the grocery store, such as those sold under the Smucker’s and Welch’s brands. The thickness of the spread made it an easy task to get it out of the jar with a knife and easily spreadable, as well.
Ripe apricots have a richer and sweeter flavor than this apricot fruit spread. That being said, this spread is still rather pleasant to the taste and by no means comes across as being bland or dull. There’s a definite apricot flavor to the spread and the aftertaste could possibly be best described as being tangy. The apricot flavor does stand out relatively nicely with each bite and the tangy flavor that came along after didn’t fade quickly. The combination of a moderate amount of sweetness and an aftertaste that was tangy resulted in a spread that was enjoyable to add to common breakfast items. While the fruit spread isn’t as enjoyable as biting into an actual ripe and juicy apricot, it’s still quite enjoyable to the taste and it’s a great way to enjoy the flavor of apricots with one’s morning breakfast. An added plus is that this fruit spread is all natural and is low in calories.
Suzanne’s Specialties Apricot Rice Nectar Spreadable Fruit is a treat to have on, among other things, toasted bread. The fruit spread is quite easy to remove from the jar and spread across a surface. It’s on the thick side and has a flavor that’s very comparable to that of apricots, although the sweetness of the fruit spread doesn’t quite measure up to what the apricot fruit has to offer. The tangy aftertaste is pretty pleasant and is appropriate considering this is an apricot fruit spread. It’s really pretty enjoyable to have overall and is a nice alternative to the very common grape and strawberry spreads that seem to be all over the place.
