Santa Cruz Organic started in the early 1970’s and was one of the first organic brands. They were the first brand to create a range of organic 100 percent juice and juice blends. Their crows are grown in the Santa Cruz mountain orchards, an area that has been known for it’s high-quality and flavorful fruit. Santa Cruz Organic today offers a wide range of products from juice and spritzers to peanut butter and fruit spreads. They even have juice boxes and apple sauce perfect for back to school lunchboxes.
I was able to sample a variety of products from Santa Cruz Organics. First, their drink sampler arrived which included their organic juice flavors and spritzers. My kids go through a lot of juice so it was fun to try out some different flavors like Peach Lemonade and Limeade. My kids didn’t go for all the new flavors but they were a fan of some of them. The Lemonade flavors were their favorite! The Spritzers were a big hit with my husband and brother. They both enjoyed all the carbonated flavored drinks that didn’t have the overwhelming strong syrup taste you find in soda. Next arrived a range of samples that were perfectly timed for back to school! My son loves having the different applesauce cups packed in his lunch box. It makes it simple to get in fruit in a way he can enjoy. The fruit spreads are great for lunches or morning toast. They have a thinner consistency than I was expecting, but spread well and taste great. As a fun treat at the end of a long week, we have really been enjoying sampling the different Organic chocolate syrups! Santa Cruz Organic even has fun flavors for their syrups as well including Mint Chocolate and Raspberry Chocolate! The syrups taste great and I really appreciate that they are organic!

I knew about their juices, but not the sauces or syrups.

I have been trying to give my daughter more organic foods, especially because of all the pesticides that are used growing fruits and vegetables. I'll have to check this brand out.

I haven't tried many organic foods. Fruit juice would be a good place to start!
