PITTSBURGH & CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--A favorite lunch box staple is getting a makeover just in time for the back-to-school season. Capri Sun is unveiling four product lines made with all-natural ingredients and no added sugar*: new Capri Sun Fruit Refreshers, Capri Sun Organic, Capri Sun 100% Juice and Capri Sun Fruit & Veggie Blends.
These products offer options that fit the needs of every parent – including that of award-winning singer and songwriter John Legend. As a new dad, John is seeking products with all-natural ingredients for his own family, which is why he’s helping Capri Sun get the word out about its new All Natural Ingredient and No Added Sugar* varieties.
In a video released by the brand today, two kids enlist John’s help to get their mom’s attention to tell her about the great news from Capri Sun. Just when she least expects it during a yoga class, she’s surprised to see John sitting next to her, talking out loud, and asking for things only her kids would demand. In the end, she learns that her kids were telling John exactly what to say, and why John was acting out of character. To watch the video, visit https://youtu.be/Jz0mfm0l8Jw.
