Cuties, good juice that is good for you

All juice together text edited

I tweeted that I could not get enough of Cuties Juice. Did you even know they made juice? I didn’t until recently! Yes, Cuties Juice is brought to you by the same family farmers that bring you the goodness of Cuties tangerines. All of their Clementines, Mandarins, and Oranges are grown in the California sunshine, picked squeezed and bottled in the eco-friendly juice plant, fresh for you! I was surprised and grateful when the company sent me some coupons to try more Cuties Juice for myself – since the juice is squeezed fresh, I had to go directly to the store to get it. Below is my review of Cuties, good juice that is good for you.

I found Cuties in my area at Target and not the regular grocery store. Cuties has a store locator on their website, so I recommend you check it out so you can find out where to get Cuties near you! With my coupons, I got several kinds of Cuties, including juice and smoothies. I love that Cuties has such a wide variety of juices and smoothies to choose from and the 8 oz sizes are perfect for on-the-go snacking or to pack for lunch. Of the juice, my favorite is the Tangerine-Orange-Mango blend – it is slightly, but not overpoweringly sweet, and tastes like a tropical vacation in a bottle. If you don’t know where to start, try the 100% Tangerine juice. It is only 100 calories for an 8 oz serving and contains no additives or artificial ingredients.

I did not like the smoothies as much as the juice, but I am particular about smoothies. They have to be ice cold and I prefer them directly out of the blender, however, the smoothies would be great in the morning with breakfast because they pack a nutritional punch that is hard to find in such a small package. My favorite was the Tangerine and Blueberry Smoothie. In just one 8 oz bottle are 2 1/2 Cuties, 15 blueberries and 1/2 a peach. I actually do not like to eat blueberries because I don’t like the texture, but I know they have health benefits, including vital antioxidants, that you can’t find in many other foods. I like the taste of this smoothie a lot!

Cuties 100% Tangerine Juice is always squeezed from FRESH Clementine and Mandarin fruit, never from concentrate. The only sugar in Cuties Juice comes from the fruit itself, unlike some other brands of juice, which is why I really try to limit the amount of juice I drink. With Cuties Juice there is no added sugar, no refined sugar and no artificial sweeteners. It’s all real and all natural and that’s good for you! All of the juices and smoothies have 150 % Daily Value of Vitamin C per 8 oz serving, which offers a quick boost to the immune system. They provide 1 or 2 grams of protein per serving and are packed full of antioxidants.

In addition, the GoGoGreen Tangerine and Kiwi Smoothie contains pirulina and Golden Chlorella—two plant (algae) superfoods that provide highly bio-available all-vegetable protein, essential vitamins and phytonutrients such as the antioxidant beta-carotene, and the important essential fatty acid Gamma-linoleic acid (GLA). They are also rich in iron, magnesium, and calcium. As you know, omega fatty acids are important because they regulate cell function, genetic function and have been shown to be beneficial to heart health. You can find out more nutritional information this Smoothie here. While the color may make you hesitate, I found this smoothie to be second in taste to the blueberry. I would purchase it in the larger quantity to get the health benefits as well.

Last, but certainly not least, Cuties Juices are squeezed and bottled in a plant that strives to be energy efficient sustainable and currently Cuties is striving for all of their bottles to be made of 100% Post Consumer recycled material. All of the bottles are and will always be BPA Free.

Be sure to connect with Cuties Juice on Twitter and Facebook and be the first to hear of special offers and promotions. The Twitter feed is a lot of fun!

And, of course, anything Cuties related would not be complete without the Cuties stickers, which they also sent to me. (They played a vital role in my notes of this review).

Thank you to Cuties Juice for supplying me with a generous amount of coupons to purchase Cuties Juice for review on my blog. And, thank you to my sister and her dog, Maddie for helping with the photographs.

What about you? Did you know there was such a thing as Cuties Juice? Have you tried Cuties Juice? If so, which one is your favorite?

Until the next mile marker,


Please note: I was sent several coupons for free 8 oz bottles of juice for this review of Cuties Juice. I was not compensated in any way and was not asked to write a positive review. I simply love juice that tastes good and is good for me, and the opinions expressed in this post are solely my own. 

Spring Fitness Products 2013

Main Post Photo

It’s spring, but you wouldn’t know it in Central Ohio from the most recent snow storm that moved through over the weekend (really, it was Much Ado About Nothing), but there is a little snow on the grass and trees. Needless to say, I am ready for spring! I’m kicking off the start of the new season with these spring fitness products 2013.

Blood Clot Awareness Band

March, as I hope you know, is Blood Clot Awareness Month! You can read about it HERE. I wear the “Get A Clue, Clots Kill” awareness band from The Clot Must Be Fought. It is important to me to spread the awareness of the the signs, symptoms and causes of blood clots, because they can injure anyone at anytime. It doesn’t matter if you are fit, healthy, young, old, slim, overweight, male or female. We are all at risk! You can help spread the word by ordering your own wristband for $2.00/each.

Blistex Moisture Melt Lip Balm

Blistex Moisture Melt Lip Balm

Love, love, love this lip balm! It is silky and subtly shiny, but not so much that it is sticky and overly glossy. It has a slight shimmer to it and smells almost minty. I wear it alone when I don’t have lip gloss or I don’t feel like wearing something with a lot of color. This balm feels so good on your lips and has sunscreen protection. It also lasts with very few reapplications (unless you love it as much as me and just have to put on more). Find it at your local grocer/pharmacy. I think it was around $3.

Ello Percy Glass Water Bottle Pink

Ello Bottle

The Ello Bottle is perfect. I just found it the other day. It is a glass water bottle with a stopper top and I like it much better than the plastic ones. The stopper is secure and the grip is pink, so I loved it from the start. I like the way it feels in my hand and I like that it is environmentally friendly. I have been considering switching to glass storage in my kitchen for some time so I thought I would give this a try. It is dishwasher safe and BPA free. It retails at about $9.99, which is pricy, but you can use it for an endless amount of time. I got mine on sale. Check out the website to see all of their products.

Cuties Juice

Cuties Juice

Cuties Juice is so good – the best juice I have had in a long time! (Who doesn’t love Cuties, right?!) While I have greatly cut down on juice in my diet, I have been enjoying a glass of this one or two times a week. Cuties juices are all natural, 100% fruit, with no sugar added. Only fruit goes into our bottles- orange, tangerine and mango. None of the flavors are manufactured in a lab. It is all natural, non-organic and non-GMO. You can find it at Walmart or Target.

Victoria’s Secret Pink Spring Break Backpack
Victoria's Secret Pink Backpack

Victoria’s Secret Pink Backpack

I wish I was going somewhere to take this fun (neon!) backpack with me because it is perfect for spring. Check out Victoria’s Secret for all the different colors and patterns options – they also have a mini version! This bag is roomy, but not so large that I couldn’t carry it on a daily basis. The straps are adjustable, slightly padded and comfortable. They didn’t dig into my shoulders when I was carrying a backpack and notebooks this past weekend. Perfect for a blogger or writer on the go or even to take to the gym! It has a buckle flap closure with interior drawstring and front zip pocket and side flap pocket. It costs about $50 with no sales, coupons or promotions.

Relic Wallet

Relic Wallet

This Relic wallet is one of my favorite things because it holds all of my stuff, but isn’t too bulky or cumbersome. The color is a textured brown/gray so it goes with just about anything. I like that is has a quick access pocket on the inside (so you don’t have to unzip the whole thing) to store essentials like a debit card, driver’s license and cash. I got it at Kohl’s and it was on clearance for about $12 or so.

What about you? Tell me what some of your favorite things are right now. Is there anything you can’t live without that I must know about? Have you teried any of these products?
