CHERIBUNDI Review

I was sent a trial pack of Cheribundi to review - it came with 4 cute little 8-oz bottles of cherry juice (they are adorable!).  Cheribundi is Cherry juice. They offer 3 varieties - Skinny Cherry, Whey Cherry and Tru Cherry:

Tru Cherry is their original juice. There are 50 cherries in 8 ounces of the juice.

Skinny Cherry is the lighter juice diluted with water and sweetened with Stevia. 40 cherries/8oz

Whey Cherry is the protein juice - it is cherry juice with whey protein added in. 45 cherries/8oz.

Why cherries: (from the website)
Cherries have a powerful combination of these nutrients, which provides more benefits than any other fruit or other good-for-you foods like tea, wine and other juices. Includes anthocyanins, melatonin, phenolic acids, flavanoids/flavonols/flavanols


My thoughts:
These babies are tart!! I love cherries and enjoyed the juices. All natural - not from concentrate. My favorite was the skinny - I found it less tart than the other 2 and like the lighter flavor.   The juices reminded me of POM juice but of course with a different fruit flavor.  I enjoyed it just as a juice and didn't get too creative with it.

Interested in trying it? Check out the where to find page.
I wasn't a big juice drinker until I got pregnant with Nick and the nutritionist recommended I drink it for more fruit/veggie servings.  I still just sip it here and there.

What is your favorite juice?

  1. That is a great idea to drink juice for more veggies/fruits while pregnant. Sometimes it is so hard to find veggies appetizing in the first trimester. I think I will definitely try that stuff.

  2. I also got a package of this to review, but haven't done so yet. I am looking forward to trying them!

    I don't drink a lot of juice. However, I do love POM in moderation! Sometimes I really crave a glass of strawberry/banana/orange juice!

  3. I like using POM in smoothies, but i don't drink a lot of juice due to the high calories...so using some in a smoothie is a good way for me!

  5. Yum, I love super tart ;-)I love juice, but don't drink much of anything anymore because of the extra calories. I just read on a blog about watering down juice though so I may give that a try.

  6. What cute little bottles! Can't say I've tried cherry juice. I wouldn't mind mixing that into a smoothie!

    I love good old OJ!

  7. I usually dilute fruit juice to either 60: 40 juice to water as I find 100% freuit juice a bit sweet and not very thirst quenching. If I'm using juice as a far healthier electrolyte drink it is usually about 50:50 with a pinch of salt.

    I love Tropicanna pineapple juice (about the only thing I could drink in T1)and Copella apple or apple and pear or apple and elderflower (v refreshing).I've never been able to make my peace with veg juice though - ugh - there are not many things I dislike but oooh!

    Cherry juice sounds like a good idea because out of season they are so expensive but so good for you.

  11. I've never heard of that stuff. Interesting. I've been drinking prune juice in my smoothies since I first found out I was pregnant. It, um, was pretty necessary in the first trimester. :o)

  12. I'm not a huge juice person myself. They also sent me their juices to try and though I like it, it gives me some crazy heartburn!
