The pros: Trader Joe's Sparkling French Berry Lemonade really tastes less like lemonade and more like Strawberry soda.
The cons: Nutritionally it's sugar water and 2% juice not lemonade.
The verdict: For $2.99 this is closer in taste to a soda drink than actual lemonade. Don't get me wrong. It's tasty and bubbly. But the labeling will let you know this is just a carbonated soda drink with minimal fruit juice. Nutritional woes aside, if you are looking for a tasty beverage, this is a solid choice. Lemon is in the background and flavors like strawberry are far more prominent. If you enjoy a soda every now and again, this is something good to reach for. Would this make a good drink mixer? Absolutely!
