So it turns out I love carrot juice. I’d like to say it’s because I’m a healthy eater, but I’m not. I actually just like it. When I open the fridge, I am more likely to pick carrot juice than orange juice, chocolate milk, soda, or anything else that’s sweet and a beverage. I like that it has the texture of milk. I like that it’s truly orange — so orange it makes orange juice look yellow.

My preferred brand is Bolthouse (it never has bits of carrot pulp) and it’s popular enough that our grocery store is often out of stock. Luckily, Costco has recently started carrying it in two packs. My kids like it until they turn 3 or 4 and realize they in fact don’t like it. Which is fine with me because I’m kind of a carrot juice hog.
