The pros: Trader Joe’s To the Power of Seven Green Organic Juice Blend is new and capitalizes on green juice popularity.
The cons: The primary flavors are celery juice, ginger spice, and apple. For something that should be healthy, I personally wasn’t blown away by the nutritional information of this product.
The verdict: Ok, so the green juice thing has been all the rage for sometime. I’ve been curious about it, but figured it tasted how it looks: vegetal. And to be honest, I’m not sure how I feel about drinking my veggies. I’m not a fan of Bloody Marys.
So I figured for $3.99 it was worth a try once.
And once is all I was willing to give this.
I looked at the ingredients and was hopeful there was a way to balance out the flavors here. And I’m not sure (for me anyways) this was a total success.
Here are the flavors that tasted most prominently: celery, apple, and ginger spice. And to be honest, it wasn’t going to bad until the ginger spice.
That and celery. For something green it was more sweet and tart than veggie.
I was hoping for something more balanced. I don’t mind eating celery, but there is something weird to my palate about celery and ginger. The pairing just did not work for me.
While the green would hint that this would taste more like veggies, this was no cocktail for my tastebuds. Cocktails are balanced. This was off balance. Now, tried and true green drink drinkers might find more redeeming qualities in this. As for me, it wasn’t easy drinking this green.
I’ll keep my greens to their more natural state. I like every ingredient on this label. Individually. In their original state. I was also hoping for the vitamins and mineral aspect to be so much better. At least then I could hope to choke this down.
But even that did not seem terribly balanced to me.
