Every fresh juice and smoothie line needs to have a “Super Green” in its lineup and Evolution is certainly no different in that respect. In their edition, they’ve blended orange juice, mango, apple juice, pineapple juice, raspberries, spriulina, chlorella, blue green algae, wheat grass, barley grass, and dulse. Like the other drinks, they use minimal flash pasteurization, which keeps the drink having a less processed, fresher taste than some of the mainstream smoothie varieties. Each one of the fruit flavors is distinguishable from the mix, which is certainly a plus, while the addition of wheat grass gives the product an earthy note. It’s got a nice yin and yang thing going on, with just the right balance of fruit and earthy vegetable like flavor, which should ultimately satisfy anyone who enjoys a good juice drink but feels like they need a little something more than just satisfying the palate. And there’s a lot of good stuff in this drink, including protein, beta carotene, amino acids, iron, calcium, and potassium. The bottle is a 16 oz. smoothie bottle, which has been given a nicely decorated label that features a nice looking illustration and only the bare minimum in the way of text. Between the image of grass and the bright green fluid, it’s probably not the most appetizing looking product, but it’s a look that the target consumer will certainly understand and enjoy. Overall, a nicely executed, fresh tasting product.
