Capri Sun Goes Organic And It’s Still Not Healthy

Capri-Sun-Organic-Line

We fondly  remember the days coming home from school and watching cartoons while sipping on an ice-cold pouch of Capri Sun. Ah, the ’90s, were no one cared about preservatives and fake flavoring because cigarettes were the high-level killer.

Somewhere around then, we grew up and learned Capri Sun wasn’t too healthy. However, that’s changing. The beverage brand released a new Organic line of drinks for kids.

It contains 66 percent juice and has zero artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. It comes in four flavors: Fruit Punch, Apple, Grape and Tropical Punch.

Huffington Post points out that the new line actually has more sodium, carbohydrates and sugar than the original beverage.

Definitely check the labels.

You can find the Organic Capri Sun in packs of 10 for about $4.29. Who knows, with parents more aware of artificial flavors and preservatives, maybe this line will take off.

Wonder if my boss has any Capri Suns stashed in the office fridge?
