Evolution Fresh’s Splendid Carrot is a product that blends carrot, pineapple, orange, cucumber, and ginger juices with chia seed powder, organic honey and turmeric. The resulting mixture is extremely flavorful and enjoyable. The cucumber and carrot flavors give it a mild vegetable note, while the pineapple and orange give it a pleasant, but relatively mild, fruit flavor. The turmeric and ginger add some heat, which is a nice touch, while the chia, along with the pulp from the fruit, gives the product some body and slight chew. The product, which has 200 calories and 32g of sugar, is very well-balanced and definitely one of the better tasting carrot-based products that we’ve ever had. Packaging is the same semi-transparent bottle that you’ll find on all of Evolution’s single serve products. Evolution has given the label a slight refresh, eliminating some of the clutter along the top and giving the product a cleaner look than some of its predecessors. However, we do wish that the chia were made more prominent on the front panel and that there was a mention of turmeric on the front. Still, a very solid entry from Evolution.
