Like all kids, my boys LOVE carbonated sodas. Like all moms, I try and convince them to drink anything but. Especially lately with our trying to cut out all the junk that the kids eat, it was nice to find a great alternative.
Introducing the new Juicy Juice Sparkling Fruit Juice.
I was really excited to be offered the chance to try these new all-natural, lightly carbonated drinks. There are currently three flavors: Apple, orange and berry. All three contain a whole serving of fruit! The cans are designed to be colorful, fun and be a perfect fit in a young child’s hand. The best part is that they have less sugar than regular Juice Juice (and way less sugar than that orange soda!) and my boys liked them just as much.
It was pretty amusing, my boys followed their normal patterns and picked their predicted favorites. Anthony’s was orange, Gabe’s was apple and Nate’s was berry. This mommy’s favorite also happens to be the berry, too. We were so happy with our Sparkling Fruit Juice’s that when our samples were gone, I went to the local grocery store and bought some more.
Our local Alberstons store was selling the 4 packs for around $3.50. I thought this seemed a little expensive for an everyday drink. Lucky for me, my boys drink a lot of water and so I’ll be saving the Sparkling Juice’s for special times or occasional treats. Times when a soda would be appropriate, I will happily hand them this healthier alternative.
Us mommy’s need to be sneaky about getting the healthy stuff into them now don’t we?
I think the Juicy Juice Sparkling Fruit Juice is brilliant and delicious. I wonder if I could convince them to actually make the “all-natural” part organic?
