And to celebrate Best Friend’s Day, True Citrus is hosting a Who’s Your Trudy sweepstakes is asking people to identify a “Trudy” in their life – a friend you can always trust to keep you true, whether it’s saving you from a fashion faux pas, steering you clear from a guy who doesn’t treat you right or keeping you from making poor dieting decisions.
