Ocean Spray Pact Cranberry Raspberry

If this is Ocean Spray giving their take on Vitamin Water, they are a bit late to the game. If it’s just them trying something new, well it’s not really a novel idea, but I still enjoy it. I feel like this is some trick to save them money. It’s essentially the same as their normal juice , except the hfcs or sugar are swapped out for the zero calorie Erythritol and I’m pretty sure they just added more water to the juice so it was thinner and less strong. It doesn’t taste watered down, but it also no longer feels like a juice either (they aren’t marketing it that way). It really tastes like a naturally diet cran-raspberry vitamin water. I know I made it seem like this beverages existence is nefarious, but it’s just a tasty drink that is exactly what it says it is.

Fuze Slenderize Cranberry Raspberry

Fuze Slenderize Cranberry Raspberry

Without fail, low calorie aka diet drinks always sit in my “to-drink” pile the longest. By pile I mean three cupboards and a drawer in the fridge, but it’s much more entertaining to think of is as a giant pile of drinks next to my desk with bottle precariously placed, so that everyone is in constant fear of it crushing me to death. People would probably insist that I start wearing a Medic Alert bracelet. Alas, I am far too organized and they are in cupboards, organized by drink type.

This has been sitting around for probably 8-9 months now. It’s just been hanging around like an old ghost trying to frighten me into drinking it. Finally I gave into the fear and today was the day of ingestion. It’s not as bad as I had anticipated. The use of actual juice in here probably helps. This is supposed to be a cranberry and raspberry juice, but it also contains apple, black carrot, black currants and a whole mess of vitamins. The result is a fruity beverage that tastes vaguely like berries, that also has a bit of a cranberry dryness to it, but doesn’t really taste like the suggested flavors. There’s some sucralose in there, but it’s not bad enough to ruin the drink. It’s also borderline creamy, which is odd. I mean it’s not like there is milk in it or anything, but it has that certain smoothness to it. For a company that makes mediocre teas, it’s no wonder that they also make mediocre juice/vitamin drinks.
