MANDARINS FOR LUCK
Woof, woof! The Year of Dog is drawing closer and for that we are introducing the latest Prosperity Juice that you’ll definitely love. Just check out its ingredients: mandarin orange, guava, lychee, strawberries, and sorbet. Yum!
Speaking of mandarin oranges, did you know why they symbolise luck during the Lunar New Year? We see them popping up in the homes of our relatives and friends leading up to the New Year but did you know what their presence means? Well, this citrus fruit gets all the special treatment during the festive season because the Chinese word for mandarin – kam – sounds similar to the Chinese word for ‘gold’. Therefore, having mandarin oranges around the home during the New Year is believed to bring richness into your life. It is also a tradition to give a plum mandarin oranges along with a red packet to someone to sweeten the deal and amp up the luck factor. In fact, the mandarin accompanies pretty much every gift you give during Chinese New Year.
We know one thing for sure: consuming mandarin oranges are a good source of dietary fibre and vitamin A, and are an excellent source of vitamin C, with one mandarin providing up to 80% of your daily diet needs. Its nutritional values give us plenty of health benefits for our skin, immune system, as well as digestive system. Want to stay healthy, look good and fit this Chinese New Year? A mandarin a day might just help you achieve that!
Rather than a mandarin a day, you can always opt for our yummy Prosperity Juice whenever you can. It’s only available until 28 Feb 2018, while stocks last, so grab it before it’s gone. And here’s the good news: with every purchase of our Prosperity Juice (power-size), you will receive one set of Juice Works ang pow packets! It also comes with an ang pow sleeve that gives you a RM5 voucher, which you can use with your next purchase. It’s a prosperous deal that you can’t resist! So don’t wait, start counting your mandarins today. :D
