We looooove Ocean Spray Cranberry Juice in our house, often stocking in bulk from our neighborhood BJ Wholesales Club. We drink it straight up, we drink it with a little seltzer when we’re feeling fancy, we drink it all day long. From its unique taste to its rich heritage and long history of health benefits, the cranberry holds a plethora of secrets worth sharing. This year, Ocean Spray is revealing the secrets of the exceptional autumn fruit at its cranberry bog in New York City’s famed Rockefeller Center. Measuring 1,500-square-feet, the bog contains 2,000 pounds of fresh, floating cranberries, which will be on display October 16 and 17. Inside the cranberry bog, multi-generational Ocean Spray cranberry growers will share secrets of the harvest – from how the bogs are flooded and picked to why cranberries float. So if you’re in the area… STOP ON BY! Visitors can stop by the cooperative’s “Taste and Tell” video booth in Rockefeller Center, to sample products and record a video testimonial depicting how the taste of Ocean Spray juice drinks and Craisins Dried Cranberries make them feel. Whether it’s Zing! Ping! Or Ba-da-Bing! Share your testimonial on Twitter for a chance to win a $100 Ocean Spray gift pack!
For those unable to attend, Ocean Spray is broadcasting three LIVE segments on OCTOBER 16th inside the bog. Check them all out, live streamed right to this post! I’m particularly interested in checking out the 2pm segment.
