Ok, so the green juice thing has been all the rage for some time. 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.
Taste and review
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 anyway) 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 too 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.
Would I buy this again? Trader Joe's To the Power of Seven Green Organic Juice Blend is a no from me.
However, if you read through the comments left you'll see this juice has a fan base AND it is a seasonal item. So if you see it and love it, pick it up.

I just tried this juice and I'm hooked. I loved it! it is a bit earthy but i can get past that! I drink this every morning.
Hey Deb! Glad to hear you like this and thanks for sharing your thoughts on this!
I love this juice! They haven’t had it in stores since September though! I kept calling weekly to see if they had it back in stock yet, still no.

We don't have a Trader Joe's here or in Peoria Illinois I love the power of 7 juice. I only get to enjoy it when I visit Portland oregon

Love it! I even add more fresh ginger and a splash of lime. I’ll stock up before it disappears for the season!
Hey David! Glad to hear your thoughts on this.
I loved this drink. Sometimes I add additional spinach to get more greens. Beat green juice taste without the added sugars.
I was worried this would taste too vegetable-y and I was surprised by its sweet/tartness. I really love tart things, grapefruit, poms, plain greek yogurt etc.
I think this juice is approachable for a novice green juice drinker and may help parlay into true 'green' drinks. I'll admit the first time I tried it, it was the texture that put me off, as its kind of gritty, so I think it is an acquired taste. I drink 4-6 oz in the afternoons when I hit that 2-3pm slump and it gives me a good boost. (I've quit coffee after lunch.)
Love this juice as well. I don’t taste any of what the author mentioned. Its very smooth and tastes too good to me to believe it’s healthy in my opinion. But hey to each their own. Sad that some people just rate this so low and it is so cost effective too.
The Trader Joe's in Jenkintown, Pa, no longer carries the green formula. It returned for about a week and I noticed that the formula had changed. It was thinner and had extra pulp added. Now they don't carry any version of it. I felt better with the old formula and felt no improvements with the newer formula. What is going on?
Hey Gary! This is actually a seasonal item. I hope that helps!

Wow, it is sweet. Very unusual for a green juice. It's pleasant but I'm like you, I'd prefer a fresh juice.
Thanks for sharing!
