Apple juice without sugar guilt. Photo

We love shopping at farmers markets in the crisp fall air, loading up on our favorite Honeycrisp apples (the texture is the best!).
And when we see fresh-from-the-farm apple juice, we can’t help but take home a jug.
Unfortunately, that half gallon of sweet apple juice, our version of Proust’s madeleines, disappears all too quickly—at about 120 calories per eight-ounce glass. It’s refreshing, but so is Trop50 Farmstand Apple juice drink, a better choice for people who like to drink tall glasses of juice.
Thanks to Tropicana, apple juice lovers can have an eight-ounce glass of crisp-tasting apple juice beverage for fewer than half the calories of conventional juice. Trop50 Farmstand Apple has 50% less sugar and calories, and no artificial sweeteners. (It uses Pure Via stevia, an added sweetener that comes from a South American herb and is totally natural.)
At 50 calories per eight-ounce glass, Trop50 Farmstand Apple “squeezes in” a full day’s supply of vitamin C and is a good source of the antioxidant vitamin E. In addition to pleasing adult calorie-counters, it’s a great product for kids.
“The taste of Trop50 Farmstand Apple doesn’t fall far from the apple tree,” says Tropicana. We agree!
The 59-ounce bottle has a suggested retail price of $3.59 and can be found in the chilled juice section of the supermarket.
The redesigned, curvy plastic bottle is so sleek, we’ve repurposed the empties in the fridge as water bottles.
