Hello! I'm a mom of 4, a costume designer, small business owner, and I run a non-profit backpacking camp for girls. I write for two blogs -- one on sewing/costume design, and one on wilderness gourmet cooking.
I LOVE seeds in my raspberry preserves! Remember that this product is a preserve, not a jelly, so if you're looking for something seedless, then go for a jelly (which is made from the strained juice of the fruit, not the pulp)-- this is a completely different product. Just like my French grandmother used to make when I was little. Awesome.
LOVE this, and now the restaurant supply place carries it here! While I don't eat it plain, I use it for cooking all the time -- and the kids haven't noticed that I replaced their regular peanut butter with this lower fat version, either.
I buy over a thousand pieces a year (t-shirts and sweat-shirts for summer camp), and we love the Russell brand because of its quality and, more important, it's true-to-size fitting...which is important when people can't try on their items before purchasing them!
I run a backpacking camp. We send HUNDREDS of people to REI every year for good reason -- no one beats REI's pack fitters, no one beats REI's customer service, and no one beats REI's product quality. No one. We don't shop anywhere else for outdoor equipment, ever.

We love this sunscreen. As someone who runs a backpacking camp for girls at 8000 feet, I take sunscreen very seriously...the kids love this stuff because it doesn't leave them greasy or oily, which in the mountains is a huge dirt magnet. Girls can apply it themselves and even sunscreen-haters are willing to use it. Awesome product!
