Review & Giveaway: Old Orchard Cranberry Naturals

My family loves to eat fruits and drink fruit juices. However, I know they both can be full of sugar so I'm really careful about what kinds and how much of each I give my kids. Now me, on the other hand, I don't always pay attention to what I consume. My grandmother came to visit for a few weeks last year and we just HAD to run to the store to get some cranberry juice. Her doctor told her it was very beneficial for her to drink a glass of cranberry juice a day. I promised I was going to try and get on board with her but I just never did. Until...I was recently contacted by Old Orchard and asked to review their new line of Cranberry Naturals. Of course I said yes!


"Cranberry Naturals feature a proprietary blend of Truvia brand natural sweetener and just a hint of natural sugar to create a naturally reduced-sugar juice with just 16 grams of sugar- about 50% less than the leading cranberry juice- and 70 calories per eight-ounce glass".

My Take: So my whole family has tried out this juice. We received two (Cranberry Apple and Cranberry Raspberry) of the six (Classic Cranberry, Cranberry Blueberry, Cranberry Pomegranate, and Cranberry Grape) flavors. I must admit, in the beginning I wasn't a fan. Why? I'll tell you why. I'm used to my sugared up fruit juices. When you go from drinking juices full of sugar to a juice with very little sugar you can notice the difference.  However, I am a big fan of Cranberry Apple drinks so it wasn't long before I was loving it. My kids, on the other hand, enjoyed it from the start. They were quickly asking for seconds. Looks like I'll be purchasing more of this in the future!

Buy it: Old Orchard Cranberry Naturals debuted in stores last month. They are selling for the SRP of $2.99.
