….so I don’t like what the masters of kid-juice have done. They took their famous Juicy-ness to create a new liquid that is reduced from 100%, down to 70% real juice. Then they watered down the flavor and made it (barely) sparkle like fake champagne – because it tastes flat. But since it’s being marketed as an alternative to soda, is that supposed to make me happy?
It’s cool that Sparkling Juicy Juice (in orange, berry or apple varieties) has NO added sugar or artificial preservatives, but I’m not into the hope of appeasing my kids with alternatives to soda. I’d rather tell my greedy spawns, “You’re not gettin’ no damn soda! Now take yo’ azz in the kitchen and git some water.”
It’s worth trying, but only if it’s free. If you gotta pay for your kids to slurp this down, don’t waste your time. Just keep on gulping the real Juicy Juice. There’s no sense in creating a new, more expensive product if it doesn’t even measure up to the original.
