Applesauce is both a delicious snack to eat, as well as a useful baking ingredient for many different recipes. But where can you find applesauce in the grocery store?
Depending on the type of applesauce that you’re looking for, it can be stocked in a few different sections.

What Are The Best Applesauce Brands?
We surveyed shoppers both online and in person to find the applesauce brands that they like best.
While most people agree that homemade applesauce is best, this isn’t always practical, nor cost-effective.
As far as premade applesauce goes, most people agreed that Mott’s was their favorite. While some people mentioned it being a little bit watery, it was often preferred over other brands.
That being said, Tree Top, Musselman’s, 365 by Whole Foods and Walmart’s private label brand Great Value also have excellent reviews online!
We recommend trying out a diverse selection of applesauce brands – including more than just the brands listed above, in order to find one that you really love.
Where Is Applesauce In Walmart?
Depending on the type of applesauce you’re looking for, it may be kept within different aisles of Walmart.
For example, applesauce cups may be kept in a different aisle than jars of applesauce.
But how do you know where to look?
Thankfully, you can use the Walmart app to find the exact location of all applesauce that Walmart carries.
Here, you can see that I’ve ran a search for applesauce using the Walmart app.
Because it’s tied to the specific store I shop at, it displays the aisles I should look in while searching for applesauce.
For example, you can see that the Mott’s applesauce cups are located in aisle 18, where the Great Value jar of unsweetened applesauce can be found in aisle 10.
Note that these may not be the exact aisles in your local store. However, once you type in your zip code, the app will update to show you personalized results.
Applesauce can be found in the canned food section of most grocery stores.
Grab and try out a few different brands, and you certainly won’t be disappointed!
