A couple of weeks ago, I floated the idea of the Carrot Zinger Orangification Journey, in which I would drink a Fresh Blends Carrot Zinger (carrot-ginger-beet-lemon juice) every day to see how long it would take to turn my skin orange. With CZs running at $4 a pop, I made a subtle plea for sponsorship. I'm thrilled to announce that Fresh Blends read the posting and has stepped up as the official underwriter.
Introducing the CZOJ, brought to you by Fresh Blends.
Think of this as a vegetably spin-off of Super Size Me. For the next however many days, I'll swing by the Belmont store and slurp down some carrot-beet-ginger-lemon juice, and we'll document my journey toward Oompa Loompa face. Will my palms turn orange? Will I get X-ray vision? Will my pee turn pink? Will I get wicked sick of carrot juice? I imagine a little of all of the above, depending on the quantities involved, but I'm looking forward to starting the summer days off with a healthy kick at the cheery juice bar. I'd love it if you joined me, say, around 9 a.m.
