Brighten Your Brunch Spread
A staple of warm weekend days, brunch combines the best flavors of the first two meals of the day.
(Family Features) A staple of warm weekend days, brunch combines the best flavors of the first two meals of the day. Every great brunch spread complements its savory items with something sweet, something refreshing and a signature beverage, and there’s one ingredient that can help cover all of those bases – 100% orange juice.
An option like Florida Orange Juice is not only delicious but delivers a powerful combination of vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients that have associated health benefits. One of nature’s nutrient dense foods, one 8-ounce glass of orange juice provides 100% of the recommended daily value of vitamin C and is also a good source of potassium, folate and thiamin, making it a great substitute for sugar-sweetened beverages and simple addition to brunch staples like this Orange Oatmeal.
When combined with a healthy lifestyle, 100% orange juice may also help support a healthy immune system. Orange juice contains beneficial plant compounds, flavonoids and colorful carotenoids to aid in fighting inflammation and cell communication. It is also rich in vitamin C, which helps strengthen immune systems by protecting cells and promoting the production and function of immune cells. Vitamin D, which can be found in fortified juices, also plays an important role in regulating immune response and helps immune cells fight off bacteria and viruses that get into the body.
Since 100% orange juice is naturally almost 90% water, it can help support hydration as it includes several electrolytes like potassium, magnesium and, in fortified juices, calcium, to aid in fluid balance. Combining Florida Orange Juice, watermelon juice and grapefruit juice, this Citrus Watermelonade is a bright, seasonal thirst quencher that is the perfect addition to your drink selection at brunch.
“Maintaining overall wellness and hydration is important as we ease into the warmer months of the year and more time is spent outdoors,” said Dr. Rosa Walsh, director of scientific research at the Florida Department of Citrus. “Florida Orange Juice includes many essential vitamins and minerals that aid in hydration, and it is a great complement to water in helping to provide nourishment before, during or after any activity.”

T-Pain Creates Wendy’s Frosty Summer Anthem with Iconic ‘Buy U a Drank’ Remix
‘Buy U a Frosty®’ music video celebrates the return of Strawberry Frosty®; Fans can score a FREE Frosty with any purchase
DUBLIN, Ohio /PRNewswire/ — Wendy’s® and T-Pain (also known as FROS-T-PAIN) are bringing the ultimate chill vibes this summer with the drop of the ‘Buy U a Frosty®’ music video, directed by SixTwentySix’s Miles & AJ, and a FREE small Frosty with purchase promotion. GRAMMY-winning artist and entrepreneur T-Pain reimagined his chart-topping hit single ‘Buy U a Drank’ to highlight the feeling of sheer delight while enjoying a Frosty. ‘Buy U a Frosty®’ drops today on Wendy’s YouTube channel and soon can be used as an original song on TikTok – so you’ll be able to snag a Frosty and duet away!
“I loved Wendy’s ‘We Beefin?’ mixtape back in 2018, and knew I wanted to work with them when the time was right. I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to remake a classic with one of the most classic menu items of all time – the Wendy’s Frosty,” says T-Pain.
‘Buy U a Frosty®‘ Music Video
Packed with nostalgia, the music video opens with T-Pain in his studio, which then morphs into a Wendy’s restaurant, where Frosty treats are abundant, and the vibes are high. With his signature swagger, T-Pain steps up to the mic and performs a summer Frosty anthem. As he savors the final bite of his Frosty, reality sets in – all special effects have disappeared, and T-Pain realizes he’s been in a complete Frosty Time daze and has been sitting in a Wendy’s booth all along.
“Wendy’s loves collaborating with authentic artists and creators, and T-Pain is as real as it gets,” said Carl Loredo, Global Chief Marketing Officer for The Wendy’s Company. “‘Buy U a Frosty®’ masterfully captures the nostalgic feeling you get when you dip into a Frosty – a feeling that has the power to transport you to your favorite places and times. We know fans will love listening to and duetting the track while enjoying this summer’s most delicious strawberry flavor.”
T-Pain and Wendy’s Want to ‘Buy U a Frosty®’…Literally!
In celebration of this iconic partnership and the coolest treat of the summer, T-Pain and Wendy’s are teaming up to bring fans FREE small Frosty treats with any purchase with the offer in the app or on the website* from June 5 until the first day of summer, June 21.
Wendy’s was founded in 1969 by Dave Thomas in Columbus, Ohio. Dave built his business on the premise, “Quality Is Our Recipe®”, which remains the guidepost of the Wendy’s system.

The Wendy’s Company (Nasdaq: WEN) is committed to doing the right thing and making a positive difference in the lives of others. This is most visible through the Company’s support of the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption® and its signature Wendy’s Wonderful Kids® program, which seeks to find a loving, forever home for every child in the North American foster care system. Today, Wendy’s and its franchisees employ hundreds of thousands of people across approximately 7,000 restaurants worldwide with a vision of becoming the world’s most thriving and beloved restaurant brand.
