Tropicana Pure 100% Florida Orange Juice: Our Favorite Florida Memory #TropFloridaOJ

Have you ever been to Florida for a vacation? We took a well needed and well deserved family vacation 6 years ago to Florida. It was a blast and exhausting. Our main stay for the week was at Disney. All three girls were the perfect age to go to Disney. They were old enough to enjoy it and remember it.
We loved seeing all the Disney characters and the girl tried to get every signature possible. Along with the character signatures I was snapping up photos so that I could scrapbook the trip afterwards. Our trip was only a week long yet I managed to over stuff a 12 x 12 scrapbook with photos, memories, cute papers, stickers and many, many embellishments!
Everything in Disney is so photo worthy. The colors, streets, characters, food, parades and more screams "snap a picture of me" perfection. I'm convinced that Disney has a large can of happy magic spray that fills the air throughout all the parks. They cover all the senses and have their parks in tip-top-shape. There is so much to see and do and you can't get enough of it. We really did enjoy our time at the Disney. I can see how people head there yearly for a vacation. We haven't been back because of other planned trips but someday we will return to the land of magic.


Speaking of smells and memories, we noticed that Florida really did have a smell all of its own! This of course is because the air is filled with citrus groves. The drive was fun because it gave us the chance to see orange groove after orange grove. We learned that Florida has different microclimates and soil types so that their oranges peak at different times which allows the growers to harvest ripe fruit throughout their entire growing season. Tropicana Pure Premium 100% Pure Florida Orange Juice is the single largest buyer of this Florida fruit. They purchase approximately 11.6 BILLION oranges from Florida each year! Now that is a lot of fruit!!!
Did you know that there are two major types of oranges? Tropicana Pure Premium oranges are Valencia and Hamlin. Valencia oranges typically have more intense color and flavor whereas Hamlin are sweeter. These two oranges make up the special blend for Tropicana Pure Premium 100% Pure Florida Orange Juice. We loved stopping at the growers orange juice stands during our trip to Florida. We drank a lot of fresh orange juice on this trip!  


Overall, our favorite part of our Florida Disney trip had to be all the new sights, sounds and smells that we took in that week. I was able to capture a lot of this with my camera and put together our huge family scrapbook. I do wish though that I could have captured that sweet Florida air from the orange groves and added that to my scrapbook! 


At this point, the only way we can recapture that magic is to head back to Florida. To help us with this, I've entered the Tropicana sweepstakes for a chance to win a trip to a Florida orange grove for my family.
