Remember many, many months ago, when I reviewed the Fizzy Lizzy drinks (sorry there are no longer pictures in that post…use your imagination). Well, would you believe me if I told you that someone asked me to review another drink after that?
It’s true, they did. Sunkist has a new line of smoothies, and they asked me to give them a try. So I did. And…I liked them!
I can’t believe it, really. I hate juice. But these are pretty good. Particularly the strawberry dream flavor. In fact, Chris, who also isn’t a big juice drinker, drank the entire bottle on Saturday after announcing that it was “quite refreshing.”
The berry blue bountiful was also good, and very blueberryish. Which makes sense. The berry cherry bountiful was the one I liked the least. I think it’s hard to turn cherries into a juice. Robitussin has kind of ruined that flavor for me. But it wasn’t as bad as it could have been, and if you like cherries (I don’t) you might like this one.
All in all, I’m not sure I’d drink these things regularly, only because I prefer water. But I might use one to replace a peice of fruit on a day that I don’t have time to sit down and eat. It would be much easier to drink one of these than try to eat a bowl of strawberries on the train, that’s for sure. They are also 100% juice, all-natural, no preservatives. Each bottle holds two servings (Can I just say, I hate it when companies do that? No one drinks half a bottle. Seriously. It’s such a scam.) and each serving is 130 – 140 calories.
My only real gripe? Hardly any protein, so I’m not sure it would keep me full past the initial I-just-drank-16-ounces-of-thick-liquid stage. But adding protein would take away from the 100% juice factor, so I’m okay with it.
