Cranberries are one of the most unique fruits in the world and one of only three fruits that are indigenous to North America. Growing on long stretching vines in marshes and sandy bogs, cranberries are considered a wild fruit. Native Americans were the first to take advantage of cranberries. They would mix deer meat and ground up cranberries to make a survival food called pemmicana. Native Americans medicine men also used cranberry laced poultices to remove poison from arrow wounds while the women used the deep red cranberry juice as a dye. Today legends circulate that yummy cranberries were served at the Pilgrim’s first Thanksgiving feast. The great tradition still continues today thanks to Ocean Spray.
Established in 1930, Ocean Spray set off to create innovative cranberry products, one of the first being Ocean Spray’s signature cranberry juice cocktail. Soon other fruit juices were being blended with the flavorful cranberry much to the delight of juice consumers. Ocean Spray fresh fruit, jellied and whole berry sauces, Craisins, and instant oatmeal were other popular products to take off in the marketplace during the 75+ years that Ocean Spray has been doing business. Their strict commitment to quality, guaranteeing complete satisfaction, ensures them as a well loved and respected company indeed.
