This year, AAA predicts that Thanksgiving travel will increase slightly from last year – with 43.6 million Americans traveling at least 50 miles from home over the holiday. With that report, many will be using this weekend to prepare for family and friends who will be visiting.  The brave ones will face the crowds and head to the grocery store to stock up on all the staples for a Thanksgiving feast – stuffing, gravy, cranberry sauce, potatoes for mashing and whipping, pumpkin, apple and pecan pies and of course - the turkey!

While you’re out stocking up, be sure to check out the array of non-alcoholic beverages available from our member companies. From classic colas, to no- and low-calorie options, to sparkling waters there is something for everyone. We’re delivering more choices for our consumers, providing smaller portions, fewer calories and clear calorie labels on the front of every can, bottle and pack we produce.

And before the tryptophan kicks in, be sure to enjoy the fall weather with some outdoor activities such as a walk, bike ride or hike. It’s a great way to escape the heat of the kitchen and balance some of those holiday calories with physical activity!
