My kids are sodapop beggars, probably because their parents are addicted to a certain diet fizzy drink. Because I am the meanest mom in the world, I try to limit their intake of carbonated sugariness, preferring to give them natural juices, milk and water. Juicy Juice has come out with a great compromise: Sparkling Fruit Juice.
All the bubbly goodness of sodapop but made with all-natural fruit juices in a sleek recyclable can, with even less sugar per serving than regular Juicy Juice. It comes in three flavors: Sparkling Apple, Sparkling Berry and Sparkling Orange. Pour it into fancy stemware and you've got an elegant non-alcoholic drink. (Or pour some booze into it and keep it away from the kids. I won't judge you.) My one complaint is that it comes in packs of four, which seems odd. I would prefer a six or eight pack, if not a dozen.
Disclosure: we received samples of Juicy Juice Sparkling Fruit Juice in order to try it and give our expert opinions. The kids were split between berry and apple, while mommy and daddy liked the orange. Now you know.
