We are not a juice drinking family. I maybe buy juice 2-3 times a year. For us, juice is a treat akin to soda because it's hard to find juice that is actually good for you. Sugary juice flavored water is just not on my top ten list at the grocery store.
Last week at the park my PowerRanger obsessed daughter ran in to a little boy with a Power Ranger juice box. She was beyond excited to have found them! I immediately dismissed the juice boxes as another juice full of ingredients we avoid. But because my daughter is insistent, I looked up the juice on-line. You can imagine my surprise and delight when I discovered that Power Rangers juice boxes are made by Genesis Today, a natural products company! Their website is full words I love like “super fruits”, “organic”, “sustainability”, and “fair trade”. I kept clicking and found that Power Rangers juice boxes are sweetened with Stevia and cane sugar and do not contain any of the “usual suspects”, like high fructose corn syrup, found in the grocery store juice aisle.
I was dumbfounded. Ok, they look great, but how do they taste? Genesis Today graciously offered me a sample of both the berry and blueberry flavors they offer. My kids love them! The blueberry is not a favorite my super picky eater, but she did love the berry flavor. In fact, I had to limit them to one box per day or we'd have been wiped out in a few hours. I will say that if your kids are used to drinking Capri Sun or other artificial juices, they will probably need time to adjust to the Power Rangers boxes. But given the great ingredients, I think it's worth the switch.
The Berry Power Blast contains pear, apple, black cherry, raspberry, black berry and Goji berry juices. The Blueberry Power Blast contains pear, grape, apple, blueberry, and acai berry juices. Add to that a cool Power Ranger on the front and both mom and kiddo are happy! The Gabels are definitely Genesis Today's newest fans.
Power Rangers juice boxes are available at most Walmarts and other select grocery stores. But you won't find them in the juice aisle. They are available in the refrigerated section next to the orange juice. AND from today until the end of July, the Power Rangers juice boxes will be on special for $2.28 per 6 pack instead of $2.99! Stock up now for those school lunches!
Come back August 1st to enter to win Power Rangers juice boxes as part of a fantastic Back to School Blast giveaway hop!
And, mom (or dad), if you want a little treat for yourself, check out the Acai Berry juice! My husband and I love it!
