When I was growing up, my mom was a bit of a health nut. She carefully looked at labels and I quickly learned what she was looking for and what it was that I wasn’t allowed to have. One of her rules was that we were only allowed to have 100% juice and never any juice drinks.
While I do look at nutrition labels for my kids, I’m not quite as strict as my mom was. For my boys’ lunches, I’ll only send in 100% juice for them. But when it comes to it being my turn to be the snack mom for soccer or when I’m stocking up for family outings or get-togethers, I tend to go with what I know the kids will like and what is budget-friendly, which usually means buying cases of Capri Sun… both the 100% juice varieties and the juice drinks.
If you’re looking for a juice drink, Capri Sun has no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives, along with 25% less sugar than leading regular juice drinks.
I never really gave it all that much thought before, but it does make a difference. A difference you can now literally see with Capri Sun’s new clear-bottom pouch. If you think about Fruit Punch drinks, for example, you probably visualize a bright red, guaranteed to stain your child’s face and clothes, color. But since Capri Sun doesn’t have any artificial colors, that’s not the case at all.
Starting this month, you’ll be able to buy the clear-bottom pouches of Capri Sun, whether you prefer the Juice Drinks, Roarin’ Waters, 100% juice, or the Super V Fruit and Vegetable juice drinks.
Capri Sun believes in listening to moms. It’s why they make a juice drink with no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives and their new pouch will show moms the difference between Capri Sun and other juice drinks.
The changes in Capri Sun over the years have come from listening to moms, like adding a 100% juice option(which makes my mom happy).

What do you look for when buying drinks for your kids? Do they have a favorite?
I was invited to tour a Capri Sun factory this month. I was unable to make the trip due to all this crazy snow but I did get an opportunity to speak with Capri Sun representatives and was sent samples. All opinions are my own.
