This new kids' beverage claims to be "A Big Wave of Nutrition" -- with antioxidants, vitamins, electrolytes, and fiber, it sounds great, but we have to say that no parent should be fooled by the claim that it contains "half the sugar of apple juice" (and with ingredients like potassium hydroxide, we'll run to the apple juice shelf instead). As the product is only 40 percent juice, it should really have 40 percent of the sugar content of apple juice, not 50 percent. There's an unappealing sediment in the bottle, and even though we love that it's sweetened with fruit juice and it doesn't contain high-fructose corn syrup, and that 50 percent of profits go to children's charities, we're afraid no kid is going to drink this more than once. Also available in Purple Power and Outrageous Orange flavors. Retails for $1.39/10 fluid ounces
