Welch's® Healthy™ Start ™100% Juice Review

I am a BzzAgent on, and as such occasionally I get to try some awesome products. In the past I have tried and told you about Elmer's Crafters and X Acto Products, Got2b Smooth Operator Lustre Lotion, and Scrubbing Bubbles Extend a Clean. I love trying new products and telling you about them, so I was SOOO excited to tell you about the newest product I was able to try. sent me a coupon to try out the new Welch's® Healthy™ Start ™100% Juice. I was also sent some coupons to share with friends (which I have been sharing). Before I tell you what I thought, let me give you some facts about this product straight from them:

Well, you cannot argue with the health benefits, and it does switch up the morning OJ routine, right?! So, let me tell you what I thought!

First, I need to be perfectly honest and fair and tell you that I do not like Grape juice. I like white grape juice somewhat, but overall, grape juices are not my thing. However, I was really excited to try out either the Blueberry Pomegranate Concord Grape or White Grape Orange Mango flavors. Sadly, I could only find the plain Grape. (I am still on the lookout for the other flavors to try so let me know if you see them anywhere Omaha Readers!!)

I tried the juice, and it was good for a grape juice, but the real test was in having the children try it. I have a 7-yr-old girl, Salsa, a 6-yr-old boy, E Dawg, a 4-yr-old boy, Army, and a 2-yr-old girl, Cat. One morning before breakfast I got out the Welch's® Healthy™ Start™ 100% Grape Juice to go with their breakfast. They could not wait to drink it!

Salsa sadly shares her mom's dislike of Grape juice so she did not like it, but E Dawg, Army, and Cat LOVED it! They could not get enough! It was GREAT to see them asking for something healthy to drink. Even after school that day they came home and asked for more juice instead of a cookie or chocolate milk. I was very pleased that the kids loved it so much!

I recommend checking at your local store for this new Welch's® Healthy™ Start™ 100% Juice and giving it a try! And if any of you Omaha readers find the other 2 flavors around-let me know so I can try them with you! I am sure they are fantastic!!
