Tropicana Pure Premium 100% Pure Florida Orange Juice

Living in Florida we have many opportunities to enjoy the sunshine and the beach.  My favorite memory of a Florida vacation is from the year we went to Sanibel Island.  If you haven't been before you really should go.  It's a really nice place to spend the week for a vacation.  We did a lot of swimming, sunning and playing.  We also had a lot of wonderful family meals while we were there.

There's nothing better than having everyone sit down together at the dining room table and enjoy a meal together.  My favorite meal of the day is breakfast.  I love the smell of bacon frying.  I love pancakes.  I love french toast.  I love eggs and toast.  My favorite part of breakfast is the Tropicana Pure Premium 100% Pure Florida Orange Juice.  We cannot have a family breakfast without it.  It's a staple in our household.  Each time we go grocery shopping we pick up a carton or two.

Here are some facts about Tropical Pure Premium:
  1. Tropicana Pure Premium is 100% Pure Florida Orange Juice.
  2. Tropicana is the single largest buyer of Florida fruit, purchasing approximately 11.6 billion oranges from Florida each year.
  3. Tropicana uses groves in 22 different Florida counties, primarily in central and southern Florida.
  4. The different microclimates and soil types mean that fruit reaches peak maturity at different times, allowing Tropicana to harvest ripe fruit throughout the entire growing season.
  5. The two major orange types in Tropicana Pure Premium are Valencia and Hamlin. Valencias typically have more intense color and flavor, while Hamlins can be sweeter. They each add unique characteristics to the TPP blend.
  6. Many Florida growers sample oranges by cutting them into a cup shape, allowing for drinking juice directly from the fruit.
  7. Tropicana’s roots in Florida go back a long way. Some of its current grower relationships date to the 1960s.
  8. Oranges have been grown in Florida since the 1560s, approximately 147 years before any other U.S. state.

Knowing those facts you can feel good about sharing with your family.  You can know that they will be healthy and happy with a great start to each and every day!  When we are on vacation or at home we enjoy a nice family breakfast and we always have the perfect oj to go with it.  Getting a good breakfast makes the day better.  You will feel satisfied and strong and energetic.  My family is the most important thing to me and I want them to be happy and healthy.  I really feel that Tropicana Pure Premium 100% Pure Florida Orange Juice is one thing that I can do to ensure that my family is happy and healthy.
