The pros: Trader Joe's Organic Beet Strawberry Juice is organic and will be a beet lovers dream.
The cons: If you had any hopes of a strawberry flavor, you'll be wrong because the beet took over.
The verdict: Every now and again you come across a product that is instantly memorable. This is scarred into my taste buds for a along time. For $4.49 you too might regret purchasing this as well. While I was enticed by the color being a beautiful hue of red; the smell, taste and experience were all beet. Sadly, when I sniffed this for the first time, my first instinct was to hope it would still taste of strawberries.
Unfortunately, the nose knows. This tastes of beets with some lemon to brighten up the flavor. To my dismay the strawberry flavor was barely there. Even when I felt like I was tasting some strawberry, the beet overwhelmed my palate. If you love the taste of beets, this is a fantastic beverage selection. However, I grew up avoiding eating those finger staining veggies. Often the dog was my dinner time beneficiary of my portion of beets.
While I was are that beets were in this, I was hoping that they would play a more subtle role to the strawberry. In the past, Trader Joe's has offered some great strawberry drinks. Regrettably, this wasn't one of them unless you are a true beet lover. For this reason, I won't buy this ever again. Furthermore, the glass pictured ended up dumped in the sink and the contents of the bottle were dumped as well.

Would I buy this again? Nope, no, never. I'm not sure why they bothered to mention strawberry on here because this was beet all the way through.
