Planetary Berry (2009)
Evolution’s Planetary Berry variety is a 98 percent juice mixture that’s made with apple, pomegranate, mango, blueberry, goji, and acai juices or purees. This product is also one of the only varieties that has added sugar (evaporated cane juice), which, when paired with the combination of juices used, tastes a bit more processed than some of the other varieties. It’s still an enjoyable product, but then again, we’d probably reach for a Sambazon if we were seeking a super fruit drink that’s at this price point. In terms of what you’ll find inside this bottle, there’s a moderately sweet mix of fruit flavors, which includes notes of apple, mango, blueberry and acai, with the other flavors more or less lost in the mix. There’s also some slight grit, which is likely fruit skin, followed by another note of apple to the finish. On the outside, the product looks somewhat similar to the pomegranate flavor, especially since the image of the pomegranate takes up almost half of the space allotted to the fruit images. Overall, this was not one of our favorites.
