Since I started working on my health, I’ve been drinking water almost exclusively. However, on the rare occasions when I do indulge in something else to drink, it’s usually 100% juice. And I’m typically very protective of it since I don’t drink it often. Which means, of course, that my daughter always wants MY special juice. Well, I finally have something to appease her taste buds.
You’ve probably heard of Cuties, those small tangerines that kids seem to love so much because they’re sweet, really easy to peel and have no seeds. Well, the company now makes Cuties Juice in a variety of flavors, and it is every bit as awesome as it sounds.
It is 100% juice with no added sugar and, as you’d expect, contains the juice from Cuties tangerines, along with other fruit juices. They’re available at Walmart in convenient 8 oz. bottles or 48 oz. bottles for the whole family to share.
Some of the flavors have a thicker consistency, more like a smoothie than a traditional juice, including my daughter’s favorite: tangerine strawberry. And what kind of mother would I be if I didn’t get a taste too? It’s sweet with just enough berry flavor to make it awesome. It does contain about 30g of sugar, but I’d much rather have my daughter drinking natural fruit sugar than high fructose corn syrup.
The other flavors are pretty awesome too: tangerine blueberry (delicious!), tangerine pineapple (my personal favorite), tangerine orange pineapple (in the large bottle) and clementine mandarin (more juice than smoothie, but just as tasty). We’ve found them to be a great alternative to a small glass of orange juice with breakfast, and my daughter feels like she’s getting a treat. She’s already asking us to buy more!
Plus, I admit my husband and I are really fond of them as well. But don’t tell our daughter.
