Miss Piggy Good 2 Grow tops!

Way back in 2014, we told you Good2Grow was releasing Kermit and Miss Piggy juice caps.

Since then we've seen the Kermit topper but never a Miss Piggy in sight.


That all changed earlier this month as their Miss Piggy toppers have finally been seen on store shelves.



You can find the divine swine topping Good2Grow juices at Toys R Us, your local supermarket, and wherever juice is sold.
