This Naked Pressed variety plays the part of the brand's carrot juice offering. It's blended with apple juice, lemon juice, cucumber juice, orange juice, vanilla bean and turmeric. The beverage is sweet and lemony, but still has a pretty nice dose of carrot flavor to it. The vanilla and turmeric are flavors that you can only taste at the finish. While we’d definitely love more turmeric (or perhaps some ginger), the vanilla bean seems to be at the right level. Otherwise, we think Naked has done a nice job creating something that tastes like a credible cold-pressed juice offering. The ingredients, which are conventional but non-GMO verified, amount to a 100 percent juice blend and the product has 130 calories and 24g of sugar per bottle. In terms of packaging, Naked has gone with a 12 oz. bottle. Between the shape, the label, and the messaging, it definitely feels like something that fits in with the category. Overall, this is a well-executed product that, at least at this stage of the category, doesn’t necessarily add anything, but it’s still a smart move for Naked to throw its hat in the ring so as not to completely miss out.
