We love our juice -- there's usually some sort of juice in our fridge! I must admit that we have our preferred brands, and recently, courtesy of Smile.ly, I was reintroduced to Florida's Natural Orange Juice. It is NOT from concentrate, without additions of water, sugar, or preservatives -- it does have a fresh taste, and is not as sweet as other brands. But the major difference between Florida's Natural and other brands is that Florida's Natural is owned by Florida growers and uses ONLY Florida oranges -- note: a strong juice competitor imports some juice from other areas, like Brazil. This co-op of Florida growers was first organized in 1933 and today is one of the largest Florida citrus co-ops with more than 1,000 growing-members (taken from website; you can read more here).
There's quite a bit of interesting, background information at FloridasNatural.com, including a test to find out how much you know about your OJ! Take the test and leave a comment telling me how you did, and I'll run the number of comments left through Random.org to send a few coupons out to a winner! Open until March 7 (my birthday!), 2011!
And, hurry to enter to win a free year of OJ -- ends Feb. 28!
