I don’t know if I have said this or not (I think it’s only been like 100 times), but I have a weird thing about food textures. Fruits in general kind of freak me out. Bananas, oranges, cherries…yep, their textures make me gag. The bad thing is that I really like the taste of some of the fruits which puts me in a huge dilemma.
When I saw the cheribundi giveaway on Alyssa’s blog, I was almost hesitant to enter for fear that it would have pulp or something, but in hindsight, I am SO glad I entered (and won!). The giveaway opened me to a new and delicious drink that allows me to taste the cherries without the texture.
I was super excited to try each of the five juices: Tru Cherry, Skinny Cherry, Cacao Cherry, Ginger Cherry, and Whey Cherry. Trav and I sat down and had a bit of review session. Here’s what we came up with:
The Tru Cherry is made with 50 cherries in every jar. Both Travis and I really enjoyed the taste. It wasn’t overpoweringly cherry, and almost reminded me of a Jolly Rancher. It has a sort of tart kick to it that made me think I was sucking on a piece of candy!
The Skinny Cherry was also very tasty. It is similar to the Tru Cherry flavor but not as tart. It had less of a cherry taste but it didn’t seem watered down. It was just the right amount of taste to make it quite tasty. This is the only juice that is not made with apple juice included.
The Ginger Cherry was my favorite of the five drinks. As an avid gingerbread lover, I felt like it was Christmas in a bottle. The mixture of ginger and cherry wasn’t strange, which I was unsure of at first. Travis thought it smelled like teriyaki sauce which made him iffy at first. But after tasting it, we both agreed that it was very good.
Up next was the Whey Cherry. Travis and I both agreed that this was our least favorite of the five options as it was different than the others. It was a little bit thicker than the juices, but that didn’t mean that it was bad. It still had a good cherry flavor and is a great and different way to get 8 grams of protein in.
The last drink, Cacao Cherry, was awesome. It tasted like chocolate covered cherries in a jar. It even had little bits of real chocolate in it. It was a great combination of sweet and fruity. I feel as though this could be used as a dessert even.
Dr. Oz highlighted cheribundi on an episode of his show and mentioned three important health benefits of the juices: pain relief, sleep aid, and heart disease fighter. With the amount of antioxidants, cheribundi is a winner in my book!
Not only did I get to drink some of the awesome juices, but one of my readers will, too! Cheribundi has offered for me to give some cheribundi to one of you!
