Made with an 84 percent juice blend of apple, banana, mango, pineapple, kiwi, pear, and lime, this flavor has the most complex flavor of the Jamba Coconut Water line. The flavor is also impacted by the addition of spinach, wheatgrass, and spirulina powders, which give the product a noticeable vegetable flavor. The coconut water seems lost in the shuffle, unfortunately serving as more of a filler and marketing move than anything else. And ultimately, the apple flavor is too strong for our liking. This was definitely our least favorite of the bunch. The 16.9 oz. Tetra Pak has a heavy amount of green to it, lacking the contrasting colors that are found in the designs of the other two flavors. Plus, there’s something about apple being the leading fruit flavor that seems unappealing for this type of product – it’s definitely not what we’d consider a premium flavor (why not lead with kiwi or one of the other flavors?). Overall, we feel as though this flavor would be a lot better if they downplayed the apple, both in the formulation and packaging.
