To everyone who thought the sky was blue, grass was green, and cranberries were red, your life has been a lie. Well, just where that last part is concerned. Listen up: Cranberries can actually be pink. PINK! Gorgeous little pink berries! It all depends on the amount of sun exposure and temperature they get. This year, Ocean Spray—cranberry juice royalty—decided to harvest those suckers and bottle them, et voilà: you get pink cranberry juice.
Ocean Spray Pink Cranberry Juice
The juice blend, while a little late to the millennial pink party, is actually very chic. It's lighter, crisper, and more refreshing than its darker counterpart. It boasts all the great things Ocean Spray touts in many of its other juices, too: real fruit juice and no artificial flavors or preservatives. This one's also an excellent source of antioxidant Vitamin C and has just 100 calories per serving.
If you're like, WAH, I need my juice healthier, fear not! Ocean Spray made a Pink Lite juice with just five calories per serving and only one gram of naturally occurring sugar. Here's the sweetest part, though: Five percent of Ocean Spray's sales of all Pink juice products in the United States and Canada, up to $250,000 USD, will be donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
You can find the line at participating Walmart and Target stores. Both chains stock it online, too, and Amazon sells jugs of it in bulk. Ocean Spray recommends making a pretty pink margarita or smoothie with the stuff, but we're eyeing a beautiful, blush-colored vodka cran, ya know?
