Growing up, I remember drinking a lot of juice. That was something we always had in the house. I remember having both the frozen kind of juice, as well as the juice in bottles. Man, what I would have given to drink the kind of juice available to our kids today. When I became a mother, my love for juice continued and I gave it to my kids to drink (along with water and milk). I love that there are so many different varieties of juices available now.#MottsEveryDay #spon

As parents, we know that sometimes water and milk just aren’t what our kids are wanting. As adults, we know that we have cravings. Well guess what? Kids have cravings too! One perfect way to satisfy that craving is with Mott’s Fruit Juice Drinks.  Thanks to Mott’s and Social Moms, we received samples of their newest flavors – Fruit Punch Rush and Wild Grape Surge.  Our kids absolutely loved both, but the flavor that went the quickest was the Fruit Punch Rush.

Our kids loved the individual sizes and I loved that they had twist lids on them. Let’s face it, as a work-at-home mom, I want to minimize the amount of cleanup I have to do. With a twist-on lid, our kids can drink as they please. If they drink some of it and decide they’re done, they simply twist the cap back on and either put it back in the refrigerator. Not only does this ensure easy cleanup, but it also helps us save money! I mean how many times has your child opened up a juice box and then decided they were done. Usually this ends up getting tossed in the trash. That doesn’t happen with the Mott’s Juice Drinks! Easy to drink and easy to store!

Another thing I really like about the Mott’s Juice Drinks is that they don’t have high fructose corn syrup in them. Plus, the Mott’s Juice Drinks have 40% less sugar than fruit juices*, no artificial sweeteners, and a full serving of fruit per cup**. The Fruit Punch Rush flavor has 52% juice content and the Wild Grape Surge has 53% juice content. That’s pretty impressive considering some-other juice drinks only have 5 to 10% juice content. I love that I can purchase either an 8 fl oz drink (perfect for school, camping, road trips, etc) or a 64 fl oz bottle (perfect for our fridge at home). 

A big thank you to Mott’s for a product that my kids and I love and that ultimately saves us time and money!

What flavor and size of the Mott’s Juice Drinks would you try?

All opinions are mine.

*Mott’s Fruit Punch Rush and Wild Grape Surge have 15g sugar and the market average of 100% fruit juices and blends have 25g sugar.

**Provides 1 fruit serving per 8 fl oz. Current USDA Dietary Guidelines recommend a daily intake of 2 cups of fruit for a 2,000 calorie diet. 1 serving = 1⁄2 cup.
