Review: Suja Expands into Wellness Shots
Covers Products: Digestion, Energy, Immunity
Suja is a company that seems to never shy away from broadening their product portfolio, so we figured it was only a matter of time before we’d see the company hop into the refrigerated shot set.
The company’s offering, which is packaged in 2 oz. plastic bottles, takes the form of three functional varieties: Energy with Coffeeberry & Reishi, Digestion with Turmeric & Probiotics, and Immunity with Ginger & Probiotics. The products are heavy in juice content, ranging from 76% to 99% juice, and all three products contain added probiotics.
As is typically the case with shot products, the flavor of Suja’s Wellness Shots are quite potent but well-executed and intuitive. Here’s a rundown of the three:
Digestion features a spicy tropical flavor and also has notes of coconut water, pineapple, ginger, apple cider vinegar, and cayenne pepper. Additional functional ingredients include camu camu, ginseng, and probiotics. This variety is also the best tasting flavor of the trio.
Immunity has a hefty dose of turmeric, along with coconut water, pineapple, ginger, orange, lime, and black pepper. Additional functional ingredients include camu camu, echinacea, and probiotics.
Energy, which has notes of blueberry, raspberry, and cherry along with coconut water and a slight bit of stevia to the finish. Functional ingredients include reishi mushroom, coffeeberry, and probiotics. And, as you might expect from an energy shot, this product contains 100mg of caffeine.
The packaging and branding for this product definitely fits with the rest of the Suja lineup in terms of its general aesthetic. Plus, the Suja logo and style translates pretty well to this small bottle format and it has a pretty clean and easy to read look.
Overall, Suja has done a really nice job with their line of Wellness Shots. These products definitely feel like they can compete against what’s on the market today.
