When it comes to eating healthy, I find that bringing products that come fresh from the farm to your families table to be the best way to go. When it comes to finding the freshest produce for my family, I go to our local Farmers Market. I love finding the freshest ingredients that are sold, and are in season. That way there is a variety of fruits and vegetables that we can enjoy at different times of the year. I also look for different produce to use for different meals and snacks through out the day. When it comes to breakfast, not only do I love to serve fresh fruits with our meals, but I love to serve some delicious Tropicana Pure Orange Juice that makes any breakfast come together and also makes for a great start to our day! I love serving Tropicana Pure Premium 100% Pure Florida Orange Juice to my family, not only for the fresh taste that you get from a glass of Tropicana, but also for the fact that Tropicana is the single largest buyer of Florida fruit. They purchase about 11.6 billion oranges from Florida each year, buying from groves in 22 counties in Florida. To me, that is the same as going to your local farmers market and buying oranges from local growers. In fact there are growers who Tropicana has had a continued relationship with since the 1960’s! Supporting farmers in the US is not only great for our economy but consuming produce from our US farmers also brings great fresh products to your families table. I love that when the people from Tropicana purchase their oranges to make the unbelievably fresh tasting orange juice that we love, they dont just purchase at a certain time of the year. They choose to purchase from the 22 counties in Florida which range from the central and southern parts of Florida so that they can purchase ripe oranges that are harvested through out the entire growing season. When it comes to making the Tropicana Pure Premium Orange Juice, they use two main types of oranges, the Valencia and the Hamlin. The reason for the two types of oranges is so they can achieve that amazing fresh flavor that we love. With the Valencia Oranges you get that intense orange flavor along with the color, then the Hamlin Oranges add that perfect amount of sweetness which is a flavor combination that we love. Well on top of all of the great facts that are behind the amazing Tropicana Pure Premium Orange Juice, you can also enter for a chance to win one of the 100 great Florida prizes from the Tropicana Perfect Pick Sweepstakes, which includes a one year supply of Tropicana and a trip to Florida to visit one of the orange groves!!!
