Not Your Grandfather’s Bug Juice

When Don Hutchinson, Hi-Rock alumnus and member of the Plantain Pond Mortgage Club, visited Hi-Rock this summer for the first time in years, he had his heart set on a cup of good old fashioned bug juice! The juice he was served did not resemble that which he recalled from his youth. This past summer, Hi-Rock stopped serving traditional bug juice, a concoction comprised primarily of sugar and food coloring and offering little nutritional benefit. Parents cheered and campers seemed to barely notice as the infamous “blue juice” was replaced with 100% fruit juice from apples, grapes, cranberries and oranges and a larger dose of water than is suggested by the manufacturer resulting in a less sugary and more nutritious drink for all.
