Breakfast With Tropicana

I love waking up in the morning and realizing that it is a Saturday. Not only does that mean my husband is off for the day, but it also means that we get to eat breakfast together as a family of five. I tend to brag a little on my husband's breakfasts. He goes all out with what he cooks on the weekends: scrambled eggs, homemade potatoes cut into squares, turkey bacon or turkey sausage, homemade pinto beans and all of this is served with warm flour tortillas. It is so good--we all look forward to the mornings when we can have a home cooked breakfast instead of cold cereal.

We also love to serve Tropicana Orange Juice with our breakfasts. I love having a nice, hot breakfast and a glass of orange juice (pulp free for us) on the side. Orange juice is a refreshing drink to have in the mornings and I love that is a part of our weekend family breakfast tradition.

Tropicana has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. When I hear the words orange juice my mind automatically thinks of Tropicana 100% Pure Florida Orange Juice. I'm willing to bet that as you're reading this you recognize the name Tropicana. While the name is familiar I have also had the opportunity to learn some interesting facts regarding Tropicana:

  • Tropicana is the single largest buyer of Florida fruit, purchasing approximately 11.6 billion oranges from Florida yearly
  • Tropicana's roots in Florida go back a long way. Some of its current grower relationships date back to the 1960's
  • Many of the Florida growers sample oranges by cutting them into a cup shape, allowing for drinking juice directly from the fruit
  • Tropicana Pure Premium is 100% Pure Florida Orange Juice

Do you have a breakfast tradition that you follow with your family? Or maybe you remember breakfasts while growing up? I have many fond breakfast memories as a child and hope that my daughters will grow up one day and remember how much we loved having breakfast together on the weekends as a family.
