The Fruitifuls Replacement Challenge… How I fought sugary drinks & won! (Giveaway!!)

Brady is allergic to damn near everything. What he isn’t allergic to, his GI issues don’t tolerate too well. This makes it super hard to find “normal” foods and snacks he can have. As he’s getting older, he wants to drink what his brothers do, not his rice milk.

I caved and bought a bunch of fruit juice pouches that I’m pretty sure “fruit” was in quotes. There was a lot of sugar and when Brady had one he was bouncing off the walls. I let him have them though, because it was a “normal” drink for kids to have. All my boys could drink them and he saw friends and cousins drinking them too. He was happy. Hyper, but happy.

A little while ago, I was asked if I wanted to try replacing those sugary drinks with Fruitifuls by Juicy Juice. Well, Juicy Juice was a “normal” kids juice box so I thought, why not?! Brady loved the Apple Quench in the “geeeeeen” box (green for those not up on toddler speak) and kept asking for the “pink joooooosh”. Took me a while to realize he wanted the red box, known to the rest of the world as Punch Splash.

We got rid of the sugary juice pouches and replaced them with the Juicy Juice ones and Brady actually prefers these! We were at the store going down the juice aisle and he screamed “PINK JOOOOOSH” when he saw the Punch Splash. Obviously he is over the moon to have a joooosh, ahem, juice that other kids drink regularly as well as likes the taste. I like how they have less sugar and a full serving of fruit and made by a brand I know and love.

Now I want to share the joooooosh Juicy Juice with you! I’m hosting a giveaway where you could win $50 Visa Gift Card & 5 free Juicy Juice Fruitifuls coupons! All you have to do is tell me which flavor your kids would love! Apple Quench, Punch Splash, Berry Cherry Burst or Orange Strawbana Blast. You can read all about the juice and flavors on their website!

I’d love it if you gave the Juicy Juice facebook page and twitter account some love too, though it’s not necessary for the contest. Full legal jargon can be found here, just note that if you are the winner, it can take 6-8 weeks for delivery of your prize. Contest starts now and ends at 11:59pm MT, October 30, 2012.

    My son would love the Apple Quench but my daughter would like the Orange Strawbana Blast….I think the the Orange Strawbana Blast would be something they would both like. :-) Thank you.

  2. Stevie Nanstad says

    Berry Cherry Burst. I always make sure my son drinks 100% juice..those other juice “drinks” are almost as bad as soda but without the caffiene.

  3. Joni Mason says

    My 2 year old grandson would love the Punch Splash flavor of Juicy Juice!
    Thanks for this post, I am always looking for healthy foods and drinks for him that taste great and are of good quality! When I serve him Juicy Juice I can still be his hero without him knowing “Nano” is giving him something good for him that tastes great as well!!!
    Thank you SO much for the chance to win!!!

  6. Ellie W says

    My boys would like the Punch Splash and they call it ju-me for some reason. My oldest called it that when he first learned to talk and the name stuck. So when his little brother came along that’s what he called it too.

  14. Neiddy Ruiz says

    I honestly think my kids would like all the flavors as they absolutely love Juicy Juice but My guess is that the Punch Splash would be their favorite.

  15. Joy Person says

    My daughter would love the Berry Cherry Burst!!! She doesn’t get much juice but when she does it’s always been juicy juice.

  16. Emily N says

    My daughter would be over the moon about Apple Quench. She MUST HAVE apple juice any time we go to a restaurant, because we don’t usually buy it for at home – she won’t drink regular water if she knows there is juice in the house.

  17. Leslie Galloway says

    My kids and I would all love to try the Berry Cherry Burst. Love Juicy Juice! And, yes, @Kate… we can all dream that some day they’ll stop grabbing the juice boxes with their Hulk Hands. 😉

    GL to all!

  18. ellen says

    I think the Orange Strawbana Blast.would be a big hit here since everyone likes both flavors. This would be a nice refreshing juice!

  19. Amber says

    My DD would love the Apple Quench, she is always asking for apple juice even though we maybe get some once a month.

  20. Patti says

    I am pretty sure the Apple Quench who make it into my pantry! Love they are all juice! I hate that sugar stuff!

  21. Kate says

    We love jooooooooooooooosh, too! we’ll have to try these and hope someday Jack learns not to squeeze…
