When Welch’s first contacted me, I thought they were going to ask me to review their grape jelly. (It’s actually the only brand of jelly I buy, even when something else is cheaper.) However, they were actually contacting me to review their grape juice.

I actually haven’t drank grape juice since I was pregnant a little over 2 years ago, so I figured I’d give it a shot. (On a sidenote, my kids were a bit rambunctious when it came to drinking the grape juice and  they snuck the container up to my son’s room where they proceeded to spill it on the beige carpet. Ack! Fortunately I was able to get it out with some salt, vinegar, and dawn dish detergent.) Okay, where was I? Oh yeah, telling you about the juice.

Grape juice is normally sweet, so since I expected that.  I already favor the Welch’s jelly, so it was a natural fit for me to drink it. My husband taught me a cool trick with the juice. He poured it into the icecube tray and placed toothpicks in each cube and put them in the freezer. Once they were frozen, we took them out and ate them ffor dessert. They were yummy and the small cube size was perfect for my toddlers. Plus, they are a healthier alternative to other desserts.

Welch’s sent me an info sheet with some fun facts and a recipe sheet. What caught my eye were the “Welch’s Mocktails.” I was thinking, wow, this might be great for my pregnant and breastfeeding moms so I am going to share them here:
