To cut back on sugar and calories, we often cut our juice with water or seltzer. This month we gave Trop50 a try. This isn't a concentrate--it's a juice beverage with 50% less sugar and calories, and no artificial sweeteners.
Like most fashionable folks we know, Tropicana's Trop50 changed its wardrobe (er, bottle) this fall to a sleek new shape. We tasted the newest flavor in the line-up, Farmstand Apple.
Both kids and adults gave Trop50 Farmstand Apple a thumbs up. And unlike other juices in our fridge, this one had fewer calories (50 compared to 110 per serving). Mr. Momtrends (always a skeptic) was the most enthusiastic tester. He's usually apt to toss any drinks down the drain that have artificial sweeteners. Thankfully this juice is sweetened with Stevia (a Brazilian plant). For more answers and nutritional information visit the trop50.com FAQ page
Momtrends was not paid for this post. We did get a free sample of the juice--and believe me a free sample of juice isn't enough to sway our opinion.
