Today's Review: Ocean Spray Tropical & Berry Blends

Ocean Spray is the go to juice if you have a hankering for cranberry. The Manic Street Preachers even wrote a song about it. But what if you love the brand, but want some different flavours? Well, now you can try out these new juice blends, and with 50% less sugar too!

Well, therein lies the problem. These juices seem to apply the same wonderful sweetener technology behind Trop50, leaving a weird smooth taste instead of that natural, grainy sugary goodness. The flavours in the forefront are pretty good though, a solid tropical taste for the latter and a dark, juicy berry medley in the latter, both with a nice hint of cranberry to remind you who is behind it all. Still, I probably would prefer this with the all natural sugars we all know and love, because while these are certainly nice, there's just something a little off about the taste.

My rating: 4/5

  1. What I don't understand about Trop50, and probably the same with these Ocean Spray ones is that they claim to be 50% less calories, but the main reason is that they've just added water. It's just diluted orange juice... but it's no cheaper!
