I've almost kicked my caffeine habit! I was drinking about the equivalent of two 2 litres of diet soda at my highest consumption years ago, to being down to about a glass a day. Water can get boring, so trying new juice drinks has been a little fun. The thing with many of those juice drinks is that they are loaded with sugar - or even worse, high fructose corn syrup. I have to be careful and read the labels!
Old Orchard recently introduced Cranberry Naturals. They contain 40% less sugar than other brands, with no high fructose corn syrup, artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. Instead, they are sweetened with Truvia, a natural zero calorie sweetener that comes from the Stevia plant, not a lab dish. It's the first reduced calorie cranberry juice to be 100% natural, contains 30% real cranberry juice, and 70 calories per 8 ounce serving.
Course, I'd love the juice content to be even higher, but it would be super tart then probably. I love cranberry juice - it's a treat for me! - so I was excited to try this out. I was sent a bottle of the Cranberry Blueberry and the Cranberry Raspberry to try out. Lucky me, everyone else turns up their nose at the word "cranberry", so these bottles were mine, all mine! (insert evil laugh here!) I enjoyed them both, but if I *had* to choose between them, I think I'd lean towards the Cranberry Blueberry being my favorite. Having a glass first thing in the morning really helped with the boredom of water.
The nice part about these bottles is that they are shelf stable, so I can stock up when there's a deal. A 64 ounce bottle of Cranberry Naturals retails for about $2.99 in the grocery store, but keep your eyes peeled for sales!
