Almost half of all women fail to keep New Year's resolutions for more than 4 weeks, according to Trop50® brand survey
Some feel they have a better chance of marrying a celebrity than keeping resolutions
MISSISSAUGA, ON, Dec. 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ - As millions of Canadian women greet 2012 with a sense of renewal and reflection, many are hesitant to ring in the New Year with a long list of resolutions and are instead adopting a different approach to obtaining their goals.
According to a recent survey conducted on behalf of Tropicana Trop50, a vitamin enhanced juice beverage, of women that make New Year's resolutions, almost half (47 per cent) admit that they fail to keep them for longer than four weeks igniting a sense of disappointment (13 per cent) and guilt (8 per cent).
With so many women failing to keep their New Year's resolutions and more than one third describing resolutions as unrealistic (31%), the survey results suggest it's time for some women to rethink them altogether.
No resolutions to ring in the New Year
The insights signal a time of change amongst a group of Canadian women who are empowered to think long-term when it comes to meeting their objectives. 20 per cent never make resolutions. 61 per cent of these women simply don't tie their goal-setting to New Year's.
"Canadian women want to be fabulous 365 days a year, and are breaking free from the guilt of broken resolutions to embrace positive lifestyle changes that meet their goals year-round," says Neetu Godara, Senior Marketing Manager, Trop50.
Kick resolution-making and guilt to the curb
For the health conscious woman who is determined to avoid resolutions altogether and focus on achieving her goals, Trop50 will help them get more of what they want, and less of what they don't, without the guilt all year round.
Just in time for the holidays, the line is introducing a refreshing new flavour, Trop50 Pomegranate Blueberry, now available in chilled juice aisles across the country. Trop50 is made with 50 per cent less sugar and calories than the leading 100 per cent pomegranate blueberry juices and is naturally sweetened with Reb-A, a natural sweetener derived from the stevia plant. It is also available in Orange No Pulp and Some Pulp flavours.
The Trop50 woman
On January 2, Emmy nominated Trop50 spokesperson, Jane Krakowski, returns to Canadian television in a cheeky New Year's themed television commercial for the brand. Inspired by her 30 Rock character, Jenna Maroney, the 30-second spot features Jane - as her sassy alter ego - with her girlfriends dishing about life and welcoming the New Year while enjoying Trop50.

ABOUT THE SURVEY
From December 7 to December 8, 2011, an online survey was conducted among 952 randomly selected Canadian adult women who are Angus Reid Forum panelists. The margin of error—which measures sampling variability—is +/- 3.17%, 19 times out of 20. The results have been statistically weighted according to the most current education, age, and region Census data to ensure a sample representative of the entire female adult population of Canada. Discrepancies in or between totals are due to rounding.
