“ Brand: Princes / Type: Fruit Juice „
Since I stopped drinking tea and coffee in the morning (I associate it with having a cigarette, so to help with my non smoking, I took it out of my diet), I have been quite partial to a small glass of fruit juice with my omelette. I sometimes like orange juice, but my favourite has to be pineapple. I have drank pineapple juice since, I was younger and my parents used to force me to watch Elvis in 'Blue Hawaii" (My dad's favourite film), the film had lots of people drinking pineapple and even the King himself looked so cool with a Mai Tai in his hand (I was too young to know it had alcohol in it, all I knew was pineapple juice looked cool). As I got older my drink of choice was Malibu and Pineapple, very sickly and don't know if I could drink it now. Anyway, as I fancied some pineapple juice this particular day, I headed over to Morrisons where I noticed it was on offer...bargain!
== What is it? ==
Princes Food Group is owned by The Mitsubishi Corporation, not bad for a small company that started out in Liverpool as fish importers. Other brands Princes Food Group has under its banner include Crosse & Blackwell, Branston, Batchelors, Crisp N' Dry, Flora and Princes to name but a few.
Princes Pineapple Juice comes in 1 litre cartons and is 100% pure pineapple juice from concentrate (a 200ml serving of this constitutes 1 portion of your 5 a day). The carton has a screw top lid and on the front is the Princes logo with some images of pineapples with a blue background. On the back of the carton there is some information regarding the juice, it says that roughly 2 whole pineapples are used per carton of juice, but this can vary depending on the size of the fruit. The juice does taste really fresh, and sweet, although it is natural sugars. It is recommended that once opened you should keep refrigerated and consume within 3 days. I usually have this as my daughter and I's breakfast drink, I also use some of the juice in my curry recipe.

At the time of writing this review and also at the time of purchasing a few cartons of this, Morrisons have them on offer for 75 pence each, for a 1 litre carton and Tescos have them on offer for 2 for £2.00. I think the usually retail price is £1.29. So, at 75 pence a pop, it would be rude not to buy a few cartons.
== Verdict ==
My daughter and I love this juice, and we will continue to buy it, regardless of any offers that may or may not be running on this item. There is quite a lot of stuff I use pineapple juice for, sometimes I pour it into a jelly mix instead of water, to give it a nice mixed up fruity jelly flavour. Every time we are in a supermarket now, my daughter is always asking for pineapple juice, and I think it is good that she would rather drink fruit juices rather than all the other stuff that is full of bad sugar. So get yourself a nice glass of Princes Pineapple Juice to kick start your day!
