A Review and Giveaway!


I agreed to do a taste test of Welch's new Aqua Juice, just because my kids love juice and I would love to get more healthy juices into them, if they will drink it. When our bottle arrived, I gathered them around and asked each of them to taste it. They looked at me skeptically. But after tasting the apple kind, they were all smiles. One of my kids said, "Mom this tastes just like fresh squeezed apples!" Right after that, we went out for the evening. When we arrived home, the empty bottle sat on the counter, evidence that the juice was quite a hit! Here is some info that the company sent me to share with you:

Moms across America are quickly learning about Welch’s AquaJuice.

This new juice contains less sugar than leading kids’ beverages and many other healthy benefits Moms want in delicious flavors your kids will love!

An 8oz. glass of Welch's AquaJuice contains:

No added sugar

No artificial sweeteners

Only 80 calories

One full serving of fruit

Hmmmm, I think we would like the Strawberry Kiwi best.
Why is it called Aqua Juice? Is it split with more water?

Hi, this is my first time on your site but I love Proverbs 31...I just found out about the site in December & I look forward to the daily devotions and boy oh boy can I relate to each and every one of them. I have recently turned my life over to God for eternity, I can't even tell you how I feel, as a mother of 2 boys & divorced twice I have had quite a struggle through life and now I am asking for forgiveness on the sins that I have had in my life. I am 34 yrs old and just finally joined my first Church as a member & we are well on our way to walking, living, talking & passing on God's words through our daily lives. I just wanted to thank you for your words of encouragement!
If I do win the juice my boys are would love any flavor, probably Apple would be their favorite.

Thanks Stephanie

Aqua Juice...goodness have not even heard of it. Fruit punch would be a big hit here!

Will have to see if my local store is going to carry it!


JottinMama said...

Yummmm :)

My little one would love some Fruit Punch juice!

Too cool :)

Have a lovely week!

Sandra in Phx said...

I am thinking the kids would love the Strawberry Kiwi flavor.

Anne said...

I think any of these would be great - my daughter would enjoy all, but probably most likely choose fruit punch as her favorite. And, with no added sugars, etc, my husband who is diabetic since age 4...could enjoy it with us, too :)

Sitesx6 said...

We love juice. It is hard to find a healthy juice that isn't all sugar and High Fructosey.

We would enjoy the Apple.

Thanks for the chance.

Stacy said...

My boys enjoy fruit punch best! Thanks for the chance to win!


Stacey said...

My kids love juice, but I have to limit it because of all the junk put in it; I'd love to try this for them!

Corrie at "Cents"able Momma said...

My boys would love to try the apple. I almost never let them have juice, so they'd be excited!

I think my kids would love the apple.

Leisha LeAnn said...

Sounds yummy! We love juice, but are concerned about the sugar content. What a neat idea. My kids would love strawberry kiwi.


Liesa said...

I'm anxious to try this, haven't heard of it before. Thanks for giving us a chance to win a bottle.
My family would love the apple!

ps. When my husband reads my blog, he clicks on yours, and enjoys it very much. I do too!!!

Happy Day to you,

Dawn said...

Strawberry Kiwi!

Debra said...

Apple would be a hit in my family.
Thank You.

Bridget said...

I spent several minutes on the juice aisle yesterday looking for one without HFC. So glad this is coming out. I think my kiddos would enjoy the strawberry/kiwi one. You can contact me at if I'm chosen.

JottinMama said...

Thanks for the sweet comment :)

You get to go to Texas soon? I'm jealous! I live in Ohio now....but my whole family is still in the Dallas area! Where will you be visiting? How fun :) I hope to get down there soon myself! All this cold weather is getting to me!

Have a great week, Marybeth and enjoy your Texas trip!

Kate :)

heartchild said...

My kiddos would love the apple. They love juice and we don't purchase it very often.

This looks like a great option!

Jenn said...

My daughter would definitely love the Apple juice. I rarely give her juice because of all the sugars so this would be a real treat to her! She'd be so excited!

Liberty said...

Definitely apple lovers here!

Casey S. said...

I would choose the strawberry kiwi flavor. Not just for the kids but the grown ups too. :) Thanks for sharing over at Renee's blog. Financially free sounds like a great read.
Thanks for the great post.

Kim said...

I don't usually buy juice because of all the sugar so this would be a great option for my family.
Strawberry Kiwi or Apple would be a hit for us.

Julie said...

Fruit punch sounds about right!

rural momma said...

My clan would love Strawberry Kiwi. :0)

Laurie Ann said...

Do grandkids count, LOL! Seriously, thanks for this post. I'm looking to drink more juice myself and finding one without high fructose corn syrup is awesome!

1inCollege1inDiapers said...

Apple juice is tops at our house. I always give them about 1/4 juice than water for the rest.

mommyp4 said...

I think that Apple would be great for us. My daughter is on a special diet for her seizures and this would qualify.

Renee Swope said...

I don't need the juice but if I won, I'd love to try some Strawberry Kiwi!!

I came to publicly thank you for sharing such wisdom and insight today on my blog about teaching our kids God's perspective of stewardship and finances. The moms are loving it and so am I!!! Can't wait for your book to be released soon!

Renee Swope said...

Didn't like how that first sentence sounded. I meant I don't need the juice b/c my kids are beyond juice age but maybe I could try it and get a whole day's worth of fruit in them in just one bottle of juice!

Happy Four said...

My boys would love the apple kind.


Bern said...

I think my kids would like the Apple one.

Mum of 4 said...

Hi there,
I think all 4 of my children would love the apple flavor. Thanks so much for this giveaway.

Thanks Marybeth :o)

HC said...

Wow! This juice sounds like a dream come true for moms who care about what their kids are drinking and eating! I think we would enjoy the Strawberry Kiwi! Yummy!

Lisa V said...

I'd say Apple. Although it might be my heavy influence. The other two just "sound" too sweet.


Darnelle said...

Pretty sure my crew would like strawberry-kiwi. Pretty sure I would, too.

mommyof2sons said...

That sounds yummy! I think the strawberry kiwi would be the one we would like.

Brooke said...

What a GREAT idea! Is it 100% juice? I think that my kiddos would like the Fruit Punch varietal best, but would LOVE any kind of "special" drink as we don't do juice that often :) I'm not a blogger, so my email address is:


sweettea said...

No doubt my kids would want the strawberry kiwi. Anything with kiwi in it!

Celly B said...

This juice sounds great. I just asked my 3-year-old ds, and he said he'd like the Strawberry Kea-weed!

Alyce said...

Sounds interesting. I'd be willing to try it. We tried Capri Sun Roaring Waters, and my kids couldn't stand it! I tasted it and it just wasn't hitting on much. My kids love Apple juice, so I'd pick that one. How do you get into sampling products?

Mrs. E. said...

I know my boys would love fruit punch. I always appreciate your insights. Thanks for the juice tip!

Jennifer said...

We would go with Fruit Punch!

Amy Jo said...

Apple sounds great! :)



Sally said...

My son would like the apple...sounds yummy.

Haven't ever heard of it before.

I have a two year old that loves apple juice. Trying a healthier lifestyle and would love to try it.

Lee Ann Martino said...

Hey Marybeth,

I think my family would like Fruit Punch. I love to read your Blog because I saw you in Long Island, New York at Three Village Church's women's retreat in Montauk and you did such a great job and I feel somehow like I kind of know you! We moved last summer too, to Los Gatos California. We had come from California four years earlier so this is sort of home but a transition again none the less. I miss the great friends God gave me in NY but in general I like California better.

Keep up the good work!
