Our family loves Tropicana Orange Juice



My children begin almost every morning with breakfast and a glass of Tropicana Pure Premium is 100% Pure Florida Orange Juice. It's refreshing and gives them a head start on their day.

All 3 of my boys prefer No Pulp and Vitamin D and extra calcium !
Tropicana Pure Premium is 100% Pure Florida Orange Juice is a staple in our home. We buy a large container every 2 weeks ! Orange Juice isn't just for breakfast. I usually have a large glass after I get home from the gym, even in the afternoon.

Since we live in Florida, to me, it's a no brainer to buy OJ whose oranges from from the surrounding area. No other brand [to us], tastes as good as Tropicana.

I recently read that in 1947, Anthony T. Rossi founded Tropicana, in Bradenton, Florida. I was excited to learn this because that's only an hour from me!PepsiCo, has owned Tropicana since 1998 and their headquarters are in Chicago, Illinois. [Source: Wikipedia]

Here are some facts about Tropicana Pure Premium is 100% Pure Florida Orange Juice.
○Tropicana is the single largest buyer of Florida fruit, purchasing approximately
11.6 billion oranges from Florida each year. (Thank you for supporting our state!)
○Tropicana uses groves in 22 different Florida counties,
primarily in central and southern Florida. (Some of which are very close to me)
○Many Florida growers sample oranges by cutting them into a cup shape,
allowing for drinking juice directly from the fruit. (I want to try this!)
○Tropicana’s roots in Florida go back a long way.
Some of its current grower relationships date to the 1960s.
○Oranges have been grown in Florida since the 1560s,
approximately 147 years before any other U.S. state.

All around us are orange groves. The subdivision where I live, used to be a huge orange grove. Kinda neat when you think about it.

 Drinking Orange Juice has great health benefits. Each 8 ounce glass of Tropicana Pure Premium is 100% Pure Florida Orange Juice contains 2 servings of fruit. Also, with every 8 ounce glass, you are drinking your Vitamin C. Orange Juice also contains Folic Acid, which when pregnant, can reduce some risks of some spinal cord or brain birth defects. You also receive as much potassium, as if you have eaten a medium sized banana. This is awesome since only 2 of my 3 boys will eat bananas.

  2. We love Tropicana too. I just tried Kirkland's fresh squeezed at Costco and it is pretty good too.
