Capri Sun is a tried-and-true kid pleaser that’s made with parents in mind. We know you have questions, and we’ve tried to answer several of the most common below. But we’re always listening to you, because we care.
When it comes to what your kids drink (and what they don't), we know what you want. That’s why Capri Sun Juice Drink is made with no artificial preservatives, colors or flavors. We offer a variety of Capri Sun drinks because we know that you want wholesome options for your family. For a full list of Capri Sun products and ingredients, visit
We certainly do! We’re committed to providing parents more options to manage their families’ calories. Our low-calorie option is Capri Sun Roarin’ Waters, which has a blend of sweeteners and is free of artificial colors or flavors. Available in six great flavors, Capri Sun Roarin’ Waters is a fun way for kids to hydrate and contains 30 calories per pouch.
All varieties of original Capri Sun Juice Drinks, Capri Sun Roarin’ Waters Flavored Water Beverage, Capri Sun 100% Juice Drinks and Capri Sun Super V Fruit and Vegetable Juice Drinks will have the clear bottom. The Capri Sun Big Pouch will not have the clear bottom at this time. The new clear bottom pouches are only available in the United States.
The new clear bottom Capri Sun pouches will be available wherever you currently purchase Capri Sun products such as in grocery, mass merchandise, club and drug retail locations. They will begin to appear on store shelves in February 2014 and should be in full distribution by April 2014. It may take several weeks before you see the new pouches in your local store.
So glad you asked! A team of experts in design, engineering, procurement, operations and quality worked for nearly a year to perfect the design and manufacturing process. First we tested a clear back option, but ran into manufacturing problems. We concluded that the best option was to replace the bottom panel with transparent material. The new clear bottom is made from a 2-ply laminate. The inner layer (the one in contact with the juice) is the same material used in the current foil laminate structure. The outer layer was added because of its transparency, durable nature and resistance to punctures.
We made the change for several reasons. Moms across the country told us they like that Capri Sun juice drinks are made with no artificial preservatives, colors or flavors, but wanted the ability to see inside the pouch. The clear bottom makes it easy to verify that the Capri Sun kids love contains all the goodness moms expect and nothing they don’t.
Although it’s extremely rare, it is possible for food mold to grow inside containers of preservative-free juice drinks that are exposed to air. What usually forms is a common food mold, similar to what might grow on fruit or bread. In the past, experts have told us there are no significant or long-term health effects associated with consuming this type of mold.
We’ve had an independent lab analyze a sample and it was confirmed to be mold - a common food mold, similar to what might grow on fruit or bread. Experts have told us there is no significant or long-term health effects associated with consuming this type of mold, though we understand how bad of an experience it can be. If you have more questions, please call us at 1-800-227-7478.
In some cases when people think they have found a “worm” found inside a Capri Sun pouch it was actually mold. The mold takes the form of a straw, which can then be mistaken as a worm since it is long and thin. While this is not a common occurrence, it can potentially happen because the product is free of artificial preservatives.
Please know that we care deeply about this issue and about the well being of our consumers. That’s why we have invested millions of dollars in our packaging, quality and manufacturing processes to make our pouches even stronger and more resistant to leaks. We recommend that parents gently squeeze each pouch to check for leaks before serving Capri Sun to their kids. Any leaky or punctured pouches should be discarded.
