      Received my award today. Can't wait to try it. Just to let you know, one of the bottles broke and spilled applesauce all over the rest of the box. Your team should consider either different boxes or more bubble wrap in the future. Nevertheless, I wish you every success. You are truly an inspiration.

      I am sitting at work in London (UK) with man-tears in my eyes. There was no way I couldn't put my hand in my pocket to help you big fella. When you go global, hopefully I'll get to taste some of your Mum's amazing sauce. I wish you all the success you deserve.
      Take care man, Ross Garden.

      Happy that you were able to find so quickly! A little disappointed you won't be able to make it out to Massachusetts and Pennsylvania being the closest one, but at least I can get some through here, and who knows what the future will bring! Can't wait to try this sauce.

      Saturday dinner with my brother Jim, sister-in-law Athena and father John was extra special, Wildfire restaurant in Glenview served my mother's applesauce so I guess Audre was with us in a very special way. I'm so proud of you and your success!

      Whoa! $24,139 already raised. I'm VERY impressed. Soon you need to expand your 14 State plan to 50. Congrats, Jim!

      Good luck and keep pushing. I haven't been to the local grocery (County Fair) in a while, but I hope your new distribution deal gets Mullens Applesauce in all the stores in the Beverly/Mt. Greenwood area.

      Best of luck Jim; you got this!!!!

      Jim, I just shipped some of your apple sauce to my daughter in Colorado. I told her to share it with all her friends. They will go nuts for it! "All natural" and Colorado is a good combination!! The whole country needs your sauce. It's going to happen for you!

      Officer Mullen - it looks like your Kickstarter campaign and your wish will be fulfilled. Hopefully the availability of your applesauce will spread a bit more through Northeast Ohio so it is easier than a 90 minute round trip :) Also I was wondering if maybe you can add a level - like if you could get the "triad of kitchen power" and 1 jar for say $65 or so. We wish nothing but the best for you sir and pray for your future success.

      I bought some locally today (boy am I glad I live in the Chicago area!). This is some dang good apple sauce! Keep up the good work!

      Jim , I was just starting my career in law enforcement with the Cook County Sheriffs when I first read about you in the paper. I'm now working in the west burbs for the past 17 years. Good Luck with your product. I look forward to having it on my kitchen table with some grilled pork chops.
