OceanSpray Review and Giveaway

I'm a big fan of juice, although if I drink it it has to be reduced sugar or 5 or 10 calories per serving. I don't like very sugary juices as they are bad for your health and teeth.

Ocean Spray, has been a favorite juice brand of mine for many years now. They produce delicious juices that are brimming with flavor. I love their yummy juices and they have become a household staple of mine. My favorites are the diet blueberry and diet cranberry juice. I am also partial to the cran-raspberry too.

I was sent a great package of OceanSpray products to review.


I received a bottle of diet blueberry juice, two boxes of drink mixes (cranberry and cran-pomegrante)and 3 bags of OceanSpray craisins in the flavors of trail mix, blueberry and pomegranate.

When I set this review up, I didn't give any indication of the flavors I liked or wanted, but ended up receiving flavors that I LOVE, which was a great surprise! The blueberry juice is wonderful and I love that it is only 5 calories and 2 grams of sugar per serving. The juice is delicious. Despite it packing a low calorie and sugar count, it is not low on taste at all. It is not overly sweet, but still has a bit of sweetness to it. It has a wonderful blueberry taste, and the juice is made with real fruit too. You can have a glass of this juice and not worry about how much calories and sugar you're putting into your body.

The drink mixes are perfect for on the go. Sometimes you don't want to drink just plain water, and you crave something with more flavor. Sodas are not healthy and some juices have 200+ calories for the whole can or bottle, so what do you do? These drink mixes are sugar free and just 5 calories per serving! They have 100% vitamin C per serving too. Just take a drink mix packet with you, pour it into your water, shake it up and you're good to go. This drink mix packet will jazz up your water and satisfy your flavor craving too. I haven't had the packets yet, but I drink a lot of water and I will be adding them to the next glass or bottle of water that I drink!

I've had the pleasure of enjoying Ocean Spray's craisins before, and I love them. The fruit and nut trail mix is perfect for the on the go or traveling. It's also good for keeping in your desk drawer at work for a quick pick-me-up. The bag contains sweetened dried cranberries, banana, pineapple, papaya, honey-roasted peanuts, cashews and coconut. This is an extremely healthy snack that not only tastes great, but is good for you too. The mix is made with real fruit, so no worries of any artifical fruit flavor. I love the combination of fruit that is made for this mix, all of it tastes great and the flavors work so well together. The fruit and nuts are extremely fresh.

The blueberry and pomegranate craisins are bursting with fresh fruit flavor and have a light hint of sweetness to them. I truly enjoy these snacks and turn to them whenever I want something sweet but don't want to eat junk. Thanks to these craisins I am putting something healthy and wonderful into my body.
