I generally try to drink only water since it's the healthiest beverage for you. Sometimes I will add flavor packets to it for a boost of flavor. I have the occasional craving for a soda or a glass of juice too. I try to make sure that my juice choice is both low in calories and sugar. Of course if it's all natural with no additives that's even better too. Cheribundi knows how to get their drink on, naturally of course.
Cheribundi deems themselves "the cherry people." They produce cherry juice that is made from orchard-fresh, tart cherries. There are no artifical ingredients or additives, only ingredients you can actually pronounce and know what they are. Tart cherries contain phytonutrients and anthocyanins. A bottle of Cheribundi contains between 5 and 25% actual juice. There are also between 5 and 20 cherries per bottle. The cherries are fresh pressed and not from concentrate. A great plus of this drink is that it's gluten free too. The flavors range from tart cherry raspberry and tart cherry cranberry to tart cherry lemonade, to a few others. If you're looking for a refreshing beverage that will make your taste buds sing, pick up a bottle of Cheribundi immediately.
When I drink juice, I want to make sure I'm not drinking a bunch of unnatural chemicals and additives that do my body harm. I like to make sure what I'm consuming is natural and fresh. With Cheribundi, I don't have to worry about that. I always like to try new juices on occasion. When I received the opportunity to try Cheribundi, I was intrigued at all of the different cherry flavors offered.
Soon after, the Fed Ex man graced me with his presence and handed me a box full of cherry goodness. Inside there were many bottles of juice just waiting to be sampled.
I received tart cherry rooibos refresh tea, tart cherry cranberry refresh, tart cherry jasmine tea refresh, tart cherry pomegranate refresh, tart cherry lemonade refresh, and tart cherry black tea refresh. Each one looked so delicious and full of yummy fruit flavor, I couldn't decide which one to try first! I settled on the tart cherry pomegranate. The combination of cherry and pomegranate sounded like heaven on earth. The fact that the drink was hanging out and getting nice and cold in the fridge wasn't bad either.
The labels on the bottle are simple and clean, just like the cherry juice they are marketing. The label contains a large detailed picture of the fruit associated with the flavor. The lettering is clear, large and catches your attention when you look at the bottle. Each cap is either green or clear depending on the flavor.
I took a sip of the drink and my both of my iris's turned into a cherry and a pomegranate. It was fantastic! I was expecting it to be very sweet and I would need to dilute it, but it wasn't overly sugary sweet at all. It was light and subtle. The icy cold beverage mixed with the tart cherries and sweet pomegranate was out of this world! I could equally taste the flavors of each fruit equally, but they both complimented each other so well. This bottle of juice contains 25% juice and 20 cherries in the entire bottle which is fantastic. The flavor is truly delicious and I had to stop myself from drinking the whole bottle in two seconds. Packing this in a child's backpack for school or taking it to have at work would be a great decision. Why not enjoy this beverage any time of the day though?
Next, I tried the tart cherry rooibos tea. The flavor was similar to iced tea, which is the only way I can describe it. The flavor was slightly lighter than the previous beverage I described. It wasn't as sweet. I wish it had just a slightly more amount of sweetness to it. This drink would go great with whatever you're eating. The light flavor is not heavy and goes down smooth.
I look forward to trying the rest of the flavors I was sent. The bottles are presently all screaming my name from inside the fridge. They need to settle down! :)
These drinks would be the perfect accompaniment to the hot summer sun, especially when they are icy cold.
