The Mr. Squeeze flavor of Vital Juice Kids is a USDA Organic blend of orange, pineapple, grapefruit and almond milk. That last ingredient (which also includes dates and vanilla bean) is one that’s not overly obvious either from taste or appearance of the liquid or label.The base flavor is very much the three fruit flavors, which blend together nicely and deliver tart and tangy notes. The almond milk does add a faint orange and cream-like flavor, but the sweetness and acidity of the fruit does a nice job of masking it. Nutritionally, the product has 170 calories, 22g of sugar, 2g of fat, 3g of protein and vitamins A and C. The design of the label is playful and cute, while the company's choice of a 10 oz. bottle definitely feels like a wise one. Lastly, we really like the transparency that Vital Juice has created by printing both the production date and the best before date on the top of the cap. However, we do think a more prominent mention of the drink’s nut content is in order. Overall, Mr. Squeeze is a very nice part of the Vital Kids' lineup.
