One of my favorite Florida memories was going to Fantasmic! It was such an awesome experience the first time with the sounds, the fountains showing scenes... I think everyone should experience it once. Here's a pic (sorry it's not great quality, but it was dark and the water is moving.) The other shows the paddle boat with Disney characters waving goodbye. Of course, who doesn't love basking in the sun when your brain is telling you that April is way too early for it to be so warm and lush looking! That was another thing I loved about Florida --- the warmth! There's so much to do in Florida that we want to plan a non-Disney vacation and enjoy other things that Florida offers tourists. I love going off the beaten path to discover things and places normal tourists just don't have the time for.
- The different microclimates and soil types mean that fruit reaches peak maturity at different times, allowing Tropicana to harvest ripe fruit throughout the entire growing season.
- The two major orange types in Tropicana Pure Premium are Valencia and Hamlin. Valencias typically have more intense color and flavor, while Hamlins can be sweeter. They each add unique characteristics to the TPP blend.
- Oranges have been grown in Florida since the 1560s (that's approximately 147 years before any other U.S. state!)
I would love to win, as I'm sure you would too! We love Florida and have been recently talking about when we can go back down to the land of oranges and palm trees. I would love to visit an orange grove and sample Florida goodness right on the spot. I drink orange juice a few times a week, more so since I've cut way back on soda. It's refreshing, nutritious, and is a healthy alternative to soda.
