Welch's Grape Juice Bzz Review

So I got this Bzz Agent campaign for Welch's 100% Grape Juice. They sent me a free bottle and some awesome coupons to share with friends and family in exchange for my review, so here goes:

Can I just say, WOW. If you want to really bring back a taste from childhood, pop open a bottle and pour yourself a glass. Mind you, it's stout stuff so when I say a glass I mean like, an 8 oz. mason jar and sip slowly. After that trip down memory lane I decided it might be better to use IN things instead of drinking straight (yes we're still talking about grape juice here). I started adding it to the Mister's and my smoothies--double yum.

So here's what you do.

Get Your Grape On Smoothie:

In the larger Nutribullet cup, fill halfway with Kale or other leafy greens. Fill to max fill line with frozen mixed berries (I buy mine from 0.99 Only, because let's face it we were living like students for the last two years and now who doesn't love to save money?!). Pour in about 1/2 a cup of grape juice, fill the rest of the way up to the line with water. Throw in a tablespoon of chia and a tablespoon of flax seeds. Blend until it changes colors a little--if you've used your Nutribullet before you know what I mean.

Yum. Mister loved the grape juice because it "covered up the kale". OK, I kinda like the kale but whatever. It has a super strong, pleasantly refreshing flavor that compliments the berries. Besides that, the polyphenols are awesome for heart health and let's be honest; we drink smoothies for health right? It just helps that much more if they taste good.
