trop50 red orange giveaway

March 15, 2012

Tropicana must have taken a few signs from bloggers lately because they recently came out with a new flavor — Red Orange.

image
If you haven’t noticed, blood oranges have been making their way around the blogosphere lately from everything to doughnuts to salsa. Quite a versatile citrus fruit if you ask me!

Tropicana recently sent me a few coupons to try out their newest flavor to see just how I liked it for myself. I had a hard time tracking it down to be honest with you. Since it’s a newer flavor, it isn’t in all of the stores. I did, however, have the most luck finding it on the shelves at Target.

The verdict?

This juice was delicious in all honesty. It reminded me of a more exotic orange juice. It also really reminded me of one of my favorite juices when I was younger — V8 Splash. It’s not as “thick” (are juices thick??) and isn’t as sweet, but has the same taste.I really enjoy the flavor of it, but because it is a juice beverage, it’s not 100% juice. It does boast a lower calories and lower sugar though, so if you’re a major juice lover and go through it like water, this could be a good choice for you.

Instead of flavoring the juice beverage with artificial sweeteners and dyes, the red orange flavor actually has all natural ingredients, including beta carotene for coloring!

I’m a fan, and you can be too — if you would like to win your own coupons to try out the new Red Orange Trop50 flavor, leave a comment on this post telling me what your favorite drink is before Sunday, March 18 at midnight. A winner will be announced Monday morning.

This reminds me of the ridiculous amounts of orange juice that I drank when I studied abroad in Italy! They only sold blood orange juice. It. is. so. good. I am a fan of regular orange juice, but it just does not compare.

So I would have to say my favorite drink is blood orange juice in Italy… or lemon Fanta in Europe (NOT the US.)
