Juice on the Go With Mott’s

A huge thank you to Mott’s for sending us their new fruit juice drinks to try and for sponsoring this post. Those mini bottle saves me from many a twin argument. It gets HOT when you are in a car for ten hours!

Juice on the Go With Motts Everyday

Though I loved our time in Texas last week with my family, it’s good to be back home in good old Columbia, MO. It’s funny how quickly I have adjusted to small city life. Everything here is so accessible and now that the girls are older, I am ready to access it all. I am really looking forward to getting them out on the Katy Trail on their bike. We’re so close to a trail access now that I am thinking we can even start heading downtown on it to some of the free concerts and festivals.

Of course that brings in a whole other level of prep: snacks and drinks that are easy to carry. As well as healthy enough to fuel the ride there and back, but tasty enough that my kids won’t be begging for concessions.

We kind of have the mobile snack thing down since the girls take their lunch every day. And they won’t be content with anything as pedestrian as a peanut butter sandwiches. Instead they prefer to eat like hobbits, with little bits every few hours (or minutes.)

But I had no idea what to do about drinks. There’s always water but the fountain water can be a bit funky and I find those drink packets way too chemical tasting. Enter Mott’s new juice drinks.

On the ride to and from our Spring Break, they became borderline obsessed with the Mott’s Wild Grape Surge juice drink mini bottles. I had thrown a few six packs in the car and was happy to find that they were asking for those instead of their usual gas station treats of smoothies or “sports” drinks. I know doctors say there is no correlation between sugar and behavior but I certainly noticed a dialing down in the travel meltdown level!

And while the girls loved the Grape Surge (“so grapey mom”,) I have to admit a preference for the Mott’s Fruit Punch Rush. Both flavors (and their “so strawberry” Strawberry Boom) meet my non-negotiables for fruit drinks: fruit flavor that’s from fruit juices and natural flavors, not artificial sweeteners.

And unlike those kid drinks the girls are always begging me to pack in their lunches, these have one fruit serving in 8 ounces (Current USDA Dietary Guidelines recommend a daily intake of 2 cups of fruit for a 2,000 calorie diet. 1 serving of 100% juice = ½ cup.)

  1. Angela S says:

    Those juice bottles are great to have for days at the park. The new flavors sound great.

  2. My children loved the grape surge! It’s so yummy and “grapey” — LOL!

  3. Mmmm! Our house wouldn’t be the same w/out great apple juice! Love these mini-bottles too…so much easier to carry along or travel with!

  4. WOW, they really are on the go! The bottles are cute and I know that my girls would love these.

  5. My daughter loves Motts juice, the traditional apple is her favorite. These look great, they are big, and I am sure my daughter will love these flavors.

  6. My boys love their Motts juice. We carry it with us every time we leave the house.

  7. When we are out & about for the day, I always pack a cooler with drinks and snacks to go along with us. Motts apple juice really is the best and my boys love it.

  8. I recently spotted these at my MIL’s home. She bought them for my kids, and boy did they love them!

  9. Those are real handy on the go juices. I love my organic raw cashews on the go with a nice cold bottle of spring water

  10. Firstly, I’m a big fan because they have lids that screw on and prevent spills! But I’m all for juice that’s natural like that too!

  11. Mott’s is the perfect choice, I agree. It’s always good, without fail, and it’s one of the most affordable juice choices out there.

  12. Mott’s has always been my favorite apple juice. I could carry their 64oz bottle as my own juice box!

  13. first i have to say your models are adorable and I like this being able to take healthy drinks on the go.

  14. Your kiddos are so cute! This juice looks really good!

  15. Those drinks look very cooler friendly, and also a lot more sturdy than a juice box. Love all the pics!

  16. I haven’t seen those. They look like they’d be perfect for field trips and days at the park.

  17. I have always liked using mott’s juices and apple sauce for my kids. I love all the photos in this post!

  18. I bet those are good. And they are a nice alternative to sugary drinks.

  19. My son loves Mott’s juice, we just had to get more today when he saw it at the store. I did not know they had come out with little bottles – did not see them today at the store. I will be on the lookout.

  20. I love juice bottles on the go! Great for adults, too 🙂

  21. these kids juice drinks sound nice, great for taking with you on a picnic too

  22. I try not to drink water in most places other than home since I don’t know the quality and after that whole scare in West Virginia last year where the water was contaminated and undrinkable, I will definitely only buy bottled from now on. However, it is a huge blessing to have alternatives available for the kids and I like brands I trust, like Mott’s, and I also want the alternatives to be as healthy as possible. It’s great your kids loved these so much.

  23. These look great! I love the pictures too 🙂

  24. I love this review! We are big Mott’s fans and we will be looking for these at the store for sure!

  25. With lots of park trips in our near future, it seems like I should definitely stock up on some of these for my four kiddos. I love that they are tasty yet portable too, for on the go fun!

  26. Kiddo absolutely loves apple juice! Actually so do I, so I have to buy twice as much!

  27. First of all, love the jammies! Secondly, this juice is perfect for picnics and playdates!

  28. I love Mott’s yummy and handy all at the same time!
