By now, I hope you’ve heard about all the awesome news from Capri Sun and my new fave pals the #CapriSunCrew! If not, you have to go and check out our previous posts here and here! Remember, Lady and the Blog LLC was paid to participate in this program, but all opinions and absolute love for the product is my own.
If you can believe it (and I can not), summer is actually winding down and it’s time get ready for the fall. I know, we waited MONTHS and MONTHS for the good weather and long vacation to come and, poof, it almost over. Time for the back to school rush, the start of the fall teams crush, and the lowering temperature grind. It’s school lunches and practice snacks to help them get through their days happily.
What is a mom to do? There is, no doubt, a lot of pressure to get it right. Kids can be very picky when it comes to eating and drinking. While all kids are different, I’m pretty sure we can all agree that they can be tough to please, LOL!
One staple of our lunch and snack regimen has to be Capri Sun. You know the name, it been around forever. Those pouches of goodness have been gracing lunch boxes, brown bags, and backpacks for a long, long time. And for good reason…they are awesome. They taste great, they quench your thirst, and are always easy to use with that famous pouch.
Being a mom, though, makes you think about things a little differently. We want our kids to be happy and satisfied, but we always have to make sure they are eating and drinking the right things, right? They certainly don’t care about nutrition and health (at least not like we do). Somebody has to! That’s why I love Capri Sun even more today than I did last back to school!! Capri Sun has always made juice drink pouches with no artificial preservatives, colors or flavors, but recently they introduced a few modifications.
Here’s just a quick reminder of all the awesome changes that have been made in 2015:
- Replacing High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS) with sugar in its original line of Capri Sun Juice Drink. They now have 35% less sugar than other leading juice drinks.*
- Replacing sucralose with stevia leaf extract and HFCS with sugar in its Roarin’ Waters Flavored Water Beverages.
- Taking more than 25 billion calories out of the marketplace annually.
Isn’t it so amazing that the brand is actually listening to what us parents want! This new version is awesome…it makes me feel so much better that I am giving it to my kids. Big plus…the kids slurp it down like they’ve been in the Mojave running marathons all day long!
These drinks are completely rocking with great flavors and a no HFCS. It’s perfect for all that fall craziness has in store for us. Soak up the last few weeks of summer, though. Cherish every minute, as you well know that the moments are fleeting and the time flies by. Enjoy it!!
