Recently my Mom sampled some soups and juices from Happy Planet. “Adam, you have to try this”, Sara Says…“I think you’ll really like it.” Little did she know: I already buy these for my own family.
More and more, we have to be vigilant when buying groceries for our families. The label on the front entices us, but the label on the back informs us. When fruit juice contains more sugar than soda pop, and “all natural” soup contains ingredients I’ve never heard of before, and can’t even pronounce, it makes me a very cynical shopper.
Enter Happy Planet, where Organic Pomegranate and Blueberry Juice, Organic Strawberry and Banana Juice, and Organic Acai Berry Juice contain water and organic fruit. That’s all. What a revelation. We want the products that we buy to be what they say they are—and here, they are!
Smoothies like the ambrosial Mango and Passion Fruit, blend apple juice, mango puree, banana puree, water, passion fruit puree, lime juice, and vitamin C. That’s it. Nothing else. No additives, modifications, or preservatives necessary. Extreme Green is a power punch of apple juice, banana puree, passion fruit puree, plum puree, lemon juice, spirulina powder, chlorella powder, alfalfa powder, kelp powder, spinach powder, stinging nettle powder, dulse powder, and vitamin C. Who needs coffee after that?
I am a soup lover. I don’t like when ingredients and flavours drown in the broth. Chilliwack Broccoli and Cheddar Soup is irresistible; Fraser Valley Mushroom and Mascarpone is a garden medley of mushrooms; and Berkley Butternut Squash Soup is a perfect-for-autumn hearty bowl of warmth. These are mellifluously blended soups where every ingredient is organic, and every ingredient can be tasted as though it just came out of the kitchen. We can trust their source and distinguish their flavours. We love the Moroccan Chickpea Soup, and the Louisiana Sweetcorn with Red Pepper and Chipotle Soup, all chock full of good stuff from Canadian farmers.
