It’s a weekday morning and you’re in the kitchen pondering breakfast. What are the options? Cereal? Sure. Toasted bagel? Okay. Florida orange juice? Always. There are tons of options out there for a healthy breakfast, and our Go2Girlz panel of product testers recently had the pleasure of trying one of them: Florida grapefruit. According to Canada’s Food Guide, a half-grapefruit equals one full serving of fruit, which makes it an excellent way to start off your day.
Some of our testers were surprised to receive fresh fruit in a box in the mail, but in the end every single one of them absolutely loved the ruby red Florida grapefruit they tested. Ruby red grapefruit are not only the Go2Girlz favourites – they’re the favourite kind of grapefruit among Canadians. So what did the Go2Girlz like best? They were unanimous in their favourite features: the firm, sweet, red flesh and the unbelievable juiciness.
They shared the grapefruits with their families, and then shared their feedback with us. The verdict? Unanimous: the Go2Girlz love Florida grapefruit, would recommend it to a friend and will buy it again.
Here’s what a few of them had to say:
When we opened the box the smell was so wonderful our mouths all watered. The fruits were nice and firm and looked very tasty. The inside of the fruit was a nice bright pinky color. I wasn't expecting it to be so bright. It was also sweeter than most grapefruits that we've tried. It was easy to peel and eat, just like an orange. – Amanda, mom of 2
There is no downside to grapefruit! It is high in fibre, delicious and full of vitamin C and other nutrients. – AnneMarie, mom of 2
It's a fast snack to prepare for kids and they have fun eating them. PLUS, they are so healthy! – Celeste, mom of 2
As a mom I've found I don't have much time in the morning (or ever really!) to make myself a big nutritious breakfast. Therefore the grapefruit was a perfect fast, easy, yummy snack to give me energy. – Sarah, mom of 1
Well we love grapefruits and can easily go through 6 in a day. – Terri, mom of 3
They tasted better than other grapefruit I've had in the past. – Clare, mom of 1
