Nowadays, there’s pretty much a “National _______ Day” for just about anything; noodles, tacos, orange juice, truffles, two different colored shoes (May 3rd if you’re wondering), etc. The list goes on and on. There’s even “National Take a Hike Day.” Now, is it just us or does that sound like a day specifically made for JAZZ™ and completely worth celebrating? Of course, National Apple Day might be the obvious choice, but JAZZ™ is SO much more than an apple! It’s fuel for your active lifestyle; a perfectly portable taste sensation meant to be enjoyed at the summit of your favorite trail.

This year, we celebrated National Take a Hike Day on November 17thwith a hike through Yosemite National Park. We enjoyed exploring the beautiful terrain with a few friends and always-refreshing JAZZ™ apples. In fact, we even prepped a few simple snack recipes featuring our favorite apple. Take a look below and pack one of our on-the-go snacks for your next hike!
