I was sent some boxes of Froose juice to review, and I've been wondering how to write the review ever since my kids tasted them. You see, I'm torn. I don't buy juice. My older son didn't even like it until he was over 4 years old. (Seriously. I know there are moms who brag about how their kids don't like this and that thing, but mine would ask for water instead if juice was offered. I know. He also hates mac and cheese and spaghetti. I feel somehow he's avoided the midwestern gene.) My little one will suck it down, but I don't like the sugar that's in juice, and how it fills them up so they won't eat real food. I'd rather have my kids drink water and just eat the whole fruit, instead of drinking juice.
So I'm not going to tell people to run out an buy Froose to solve all their kids dietary needs. But the thing is, my kids loved it. My older one asked for a second right after the first. And he was drinking the cherry, and usually he won't touch a berry flavor with a 10-foot pole. The little one kept trying to sneak more out of the refrigerator while I wasn't looking. (His plot failed when he'd come to me to help him with the straw. He has some work to do before he achieves super-villain status.)
You can't deny that there's nothing bad in it. And a bunch of good stuff. Whole grains and fruit juice, 3 grams of fiber, gluten-free, kosher certified.
So I'm not telling you to rush out and buy it if you don't already buy juice. But if you do buy juice, and you're looking for something with more added value, no HFCS or other crap, and your kids like cherry, pear, and peach, Froose is your drink. I'll buy it for those times I do need juice boxes (parties, trips, etc.). And I'll definitely recommend it to parents of kids who like juice boxes as a better alternative than mass-market juice boxes.
