The pros: Trader Joe's Organic Mango Lemonade is a delicate and successful balance of sweet, acidic, and tangy. As an added bonus it happens to be organic.
The cons: Nothing really jumps out.
The verdict: Lemonade always makes me think of summertime. Sometimes the tartness wears on me by the end of the season. This product however makes me feel differently about lemonade. Yes, there have always been flavors of lemonade. None of the ones I've tried have been mango.
For $3.79 you are getting 64 ounces of organic lemonade that adds mango to the mix. I'm disappointed in only one thing: that I didn't try this earlier. It is so very good. It's a flavor combination that I would not have placed together, but it works so well. I took one sip of this and even said "oh wow." I've tried a few of their drinks and at times I've been completely underwhelmed. Not with this. It's great on its own. It would likely made for a tasty spritzer if mixed with seltzer (it would also cut the calorie count too and add some effervescence.
Overall, this was a really great combination that walked the line of being sweet, but not too sweet and having some tartness without giving you any pucker. I would absolutely buy this again and it's worth a try.
