Tropicana Pure Premium Brings Back Memories!

Hello Neighbors!

Tropicana Pure Premium 100% Florida Orange Juice sure brings back memories.  I was born in Florida, and although we moved around quite a bit, my family always returned there.  So, I grew up around Florida orange groves.  I can remember as a family going on the weekend to the local orange grove and spending hours picking oranges.  Other than babysitting, it was probably my first paying job.  One day while out picking we had an exciting experience.  We usually stayed together around one tree as a family and then moved on to the next tree.  We usually picked the lower oranges and then someone came after us with ladders and did the ones higher up.  On this day just minutes after moving on to another tree, we heard the pickers behind us give a shout.  One of them raced to his truck and grabbed a shovel.  We went back to see what was happening and they had just killed a rattlesnake.  Right near where we had been picking.  It didn't scare us enough to leave, but I sure was careful the rest of the day.  It was amazing to me how many oranges we could pick in a day and yet there was always more. Which leads right into my next thought!

Let me tell you a little bit about Tropicana.  Tropicana is the single largest buyer of Florida fruit and the Tropicana Pure Premium is 100% pure Florida orange juice. They purchase approximately 11.6 billion oranges from Florida each year!  Not hard to believe since oranges have been grown in Florida since the 1560s.  Tropicana uses groves in 22 different Florida counties, mainly southern and central Florida.  Who knows, maybe an orange or two I picked made it into Tropicana Orange Juice!  There are two major types of oranges used in Tropicana Pure Premium.  They are Valencia and Hamlin.  The Valencia being more intense in color and flavor, while the Hamlin tends to be sweeter.
