Capri Sun, now with 25% less sugar! Every mom’s dream.

When we recently asked 20 parents what kids beverage they have in their refrigerator, 16 of them said Capri Sun.  When we asked 25 children what their favorite drink is, 19 of them said Capri Sun, 2 of them said milk (huh?), and the other 4.. well, we won’t go there.

Capri Sun has been a staple in our fridge for going on 8 years and I am SO thrilled that all 14 Capri Sun flavors now have 25% less sugar than other leading juice drinks and pulled this off without the use of artificial sweeteners or flavors.

When we received samples of the new 25% less sugar Capri Sun, I gave them to my two kids without mentioning the difference.  Both kids drank their Capri Sun in about 2 minutes flat and neither noticed a difference.  What a relief!  I assumed that less sugar = less flavor.  I was wrong.

I appreciate that my kids are getting a good source of antioxidant vitamin E to help support/maintain healthy cells and tissues and are not getting artificial sweeteners, colors, flavors, or preservatives.

Each thirst satisfying pouch is 6.75 fl oz., enough to tame Sebastian’s thirst after a baseball game. In fact, I didn’t hear one peep when I brought these for the after-game drink a couple of weeks ago.
