We’ve got one hard rule when it comes to road trips – we don’t stop for snacks. We might stop to shop, stop to run around, or stop to go to the bathroom for the seven hundredth time, but there’s no stopping for snacks.
We pre-plan to bring the snacks with us with a quick trip to Costco, ensuring that we’ve got enough for the way. Usually, we grab juice boxes, or flavored water while we’re there but last time, we forgot something on pre road trip shopping trip – the juice.
Tip: We make a quick road trip stock up before Costco and bring labelled containers for the kids, to use on the drive. As a bonus, we usually have enough for the way home (and to snack on while we’re away for the weekend, reducing the trips to the store).
What we did have in the fridge though, changed the way that we thought about road trips, and drinking on the go. In the fridge, we had SunRype Chilled Apple Juice, so in a quick moment I made a substitute that worked out to be something the kids loved. Because of the easy to open, resealable lid on the new carton, I took what we didn’t use from the week and poured it into the kids to-go cups in the freezer.
Already late, I tossed them in the cooler that we had ready to go to keep the drinks cold on the six hour drive.
Two kids in a car for three hours at a time, with a quick stop in between, can easily become unbearable. They enjoyed the taste and freshness of SunRype’s new Chilled Juices. I don’t know why I hadn’t thought of using easy to fill bottles before – especially since the SunRype Chilled Apple Juice has only two ingredients, no added sugar, preservatives or artificial colors/flavors and is made from real apples, not from concentrate (my must have list for juice for the kids).
If you’re a fan of chilled juices, you’ll be excited to learn that you can find four exciting SunRype varieties in the refrigerated section of the grocery store. Aside from our favourite, the Fresh Pressed Apple, there are two FruitActiv flavours to choose from, and a Fruit Plus Veggies and Fibre option that gives you 2 servings of fruits and veggies and the benefit of fibre in each glass.
Take Chilled Juice on the Road
The 1.75 L carton with the recloseable lid makes these juices easy to store and easy to pour. I took it from the breakfast table, to the road, with ease. The next time that you’re getting ready for a road trip, packing those school lunches, or just looking for a crisp juice to keep in the fridge that’s a better option for the entire family, look for the line of SunRype Chilled Juices at your local store.
Tip: When you’re getting ready to take juice on the go, or pack those lunches – it’s easier when you keep chilled containers in the freezer. When I take the kids to-go bottles out of the dishwasher, I store them in the freezer to make taking chilled juice or smoothies to make to-go simple.
