Here in Chicago, Michigan apples are considered to be the locally grown apple --- and they’re available almost year-round! You can find many fresh and tasty varieties of Michigan-grown apples at your local Jewel-Osco grocer --- and this week Michigan Apples is participating in the Wolves’ Jewel-Osco vendor program.
Purchase Michigan apples at Jewel any time from Feb. 12-18 and bring your receipt to the Allstate Arena ticket office to receive up to $5 off the purchase of your next Wolves ticket (see all participating products in the special promotion by picking up a Jewel Metro ad inside any of their 178 Chicago-area locations).
If you’re resolving to get fit in 2014, Michigan apples can help. Apples are a rich source of plant-based antioxidants, which are studied continuously for their ability to reduce the risk of cancer, protect brain cells and improve respiratory health.
Apples have high fiber content, which can help with weight control and maintaining normal blood-sugar levels. These are just a few of the great reasons one Michigan apple per day can help you maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Not only can you keep your commitment to healthy living by eating Michigan apples, but they may also help you stay active! Now through March 31 you can enter to win one of three treadmills with the Michigan Apple Committee’s Healthy Living Sweepstakes! Find official rules and details at www.MichiganApples.com/contests.
