Thank you CAPRI SUN for sponsoring this post. You can find CAPRI SUN’s four new All Natural Ingredient and No Sugar Added products at most grocery retailers nationwide, including local grocery stores, mass merchandisers and club stores.
My husband and I are all about creating long lasting family memories and traditions. Whenever we do something that we all really enjoy,we start planning for the next available date that we can do that same thing again. We are the same way when it comes to visiting a new place. If we have a blast there, you better believe we will be returning! Last year we took our little ones along with their god sister to the pumpkin patch at the local farm and we enjoyed every moment of it. We made sure to return again this year with friends and we had delicious CAPRI SUN drinks in tow to quench our thirst after all the fun!
Upon arrival to the farm we organized ourselves to take advantage of all the farm has to offer in a very systematic way. We’d start at with the inflatables since they were at the very front of the farm and also the most likely to get shut down first. And to be honest, the moment my children saw the inflatables they completely forgot why we came to the pumpkin patch in the first place, so I don’t think we really had a choice. If the inflatables weren’t the first thing we did, I’m sure the rest of the day would have been ruined. After two rounds on the inflatable tree house slide, we made our way over to the tractor for a hayride.
The hayride is pretty awesome. The tractor takes you from the front of the farm to the back of the farm where the pumpkins are located. Last year we didn’t get to enjoy a hayride because there were too many people walking through the farm. We made sure to visit the farm much earlier than we did last year to ensure the farm wouldn’t be as crowded and we made a good call. Not only was it not crowded but the weather was pretty amazing. No coats needed on this day — well for Elle, Alyssa, and Joel. Our friends Ellie and Shellie wore their very cute denim jackets.
The pumpkin patch is surprisingly a very fun experience for something so simple. I’ve not frequented many pumpkin patches, but at the farm we go to the pumpkins are spread out everywhere on the grass. And that’s really it. Have you visited the pumpkin patch ever?
The kids had the most fun ever running through all the pumpkins and they particularly love climbing on the large piles of huge pumpkins too. There’s something magical that happens to you when you see all the pumpkins laid out all over the place like that.
With all the running they did they needed to take their first juice break pretty quickly, thankfully I had enough CAPRI SUN for us all. CAPRI SUN is a brand that continues to innovate and listen to consumers, and knows that parents want to feel good about what they give their kids to eat and drink. That’s the main reason CAPRI SUN created four products with All Natural Ingredients and No Added Sugar*, and why their products have never contained artificial preservatives, colors or flavors – to give parents options with ingredients that fit their preferences.
Many people have no idea about the four different CAPRI SUN varieties, so let me break it down for you. Most of us are familiar with the CAPRI SUN 100% Juice served in the classic CAPRI SUN pouch. This 100% Juice is a refreshing juice drink offering ¾ cup of fruit juice per pouch.
Bet you didn’t know there’s the CAPRI SUN Organic, CAPRI SUN 100% Juice, CAPRI SUN Fruit & Veggie Blends and there’s a brand spanking NEW CAPRI SUN Fruit Refreshers. Yup, I told you they listened to us parents and offered us more options.
*Not a low-calorie beverage

**Per 6oz, this product 10g of sugar, leading average fruit juice 20g of sugar
I take pride when giving my children these four new CAPRI SUN drinks because they are made with All Natural ingredients, have no added sugar* and no high-fructose corn syrup, artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. These four new products from CAPRI SUN have the taste kids love, without the ingredients that parents don’t want in their kids’ drinks.
After they all got a refreshing dose of delicious Capri Sun it was time for a pony ride. Joel rode on a beautiful pony called Jazz for a quick loop around and we thanked her kindly for the ride. And then it was back to running through the pumpkins again before hitching a ride back out on the tractor with our perfect pumpkins we selected. We can’t wait to do this again next year and I’ll be sure to have their favorite Capri Sun flavors in my tote bag of course.
