Essentials - Green Delight
Last Updated: 2/20/2014 1:46 PM
At the time of this review (February 2014), Suja has seven green juice/smoothie drinks that are part of its three product lines. This flavor, which is part of the Essentials line, is definitely one of the sweeter offerings (the first four ingredients, apple, pear, banana, mango, are sweet fruits) that we’ve sampled from the company. And those are definitely the first ingredients that hit your palate, while the greens (spinach and kale) follow. Lastly, there’s a note of lemon and a light hint of grassiness (perhaps from the spirulina, chlorella, barley grass, or alfalfa grass). All in all, it’s a nice tasting drink, assuming you don’t mind the 170 calories and 34 g of sugar. On the visual front, this is definitely one of Suja’s nicer looking package designs. The white background is a nice addition that definitely makes it stand out from their other products. Plus, the design looks a lot better than its Elements line (although its still a challenge getting the names of the two lines -- Essentials and Elements -- straight). Overall, it’s a nicely executed product, but a bit too sweet for our own liking.
