Road-tripping can be a nightmare if you’re unprepared. And since healthy options aren’t usually readily available, you’re typically left with gas station snacks (but some of those are pretty good for you!), greasy fast-food meals, and a whole lot of stomachaches along the way. So the notion of an on-the-go cold-pressed juice was pretty much the stuff of mystical wellness-beverage folklore, until just recently when 7-Eleven made some healthy dreams come true.

That’s right: The convenience-store chain is kicking off the New Year on a nutrient-rich note by unveiling a line of cold-pressed juices that are all USDA-certified organic, according to a press release. (This news comes directly after Target’s announcement about its exclusive new kombucha drinks; one week in, and 2018 is already off to a healthy start.)

“Ours are organic and cold-pressed, without additives and not from concentrate. Typically, this level of quality is only found at juice and smoothie restaurants.” —Tim Cogil of 7‑Eleven

The four new juices, which come in the flavors Clean & Green, Tropical Glow, Berry & Bright, and Restoration Red, cost $3 for a 14-ounce bottle and are part of the 7-Select GO!Smart healthier snacks and beverages line. And if you’re wondering how they compare to the cold-pressed juices you’ll find in health-food stores, you might be surprised to learn they’re pretty clean, with 100 percent fruit juice and no additives or sugar. (But, full disclosure, we have yet to see the actual nutrition label.)

“Ours are organic and cold-pressed, without additives and not from concentrate,” Tim Cogil, 7‑Eleven director of new product development, said of the product in a press release. “Typically, this level of quality is only found at juice and smoothie restaurants.”

Each bottle also lets you know exactly how much of each ingredient is included in each juice. According to the release, the Clean & Green flavor contains “25 kale leaves, one parsley bunch, 12 celery stalks, three cucumbers, two green apples, 13 mint leaves, 15 spinach leaves, and one lime,” all made using a hydraulic press.

No matter your favorite fruits and veggies, you can count on one thing moving forward: Road trips, at least those that include a cruise by a 7-Eleven, are about to get a lot healthier.

Cold-pressed juices are also perfect for cocktails. And check out this burger that’s made from upcycled juice pulp.
