So recently I’ve had to curb my wine intake for a bit. In it’s place I’ve been introducing myself to a lot of different drink alternatives. We can take out any coffees and sodas in that mix as I have cut those out too. (ok, I had a weak moment when Starbucks offered their “free pastry day” in July) So, I’ve had the opportunity to check out all the major juice choices out there. I also have tried to limit my selections to REAL juices, made from the REAL fruit. That criteria narrows the selection process a bit.
First, we’ll get the “simply” juices out of the way…. I am addicted, yes officially addicted to “simply apple”. It’s made from real apples, pressed from real apples and is ….. simply apples. Take a look at the site … It’s VERY well done and you’ll spend some time on it…. don’t forget to check out their receipes like Roasted Rack of Lamb with Orange Ginger Glaze and cranberry sauce. mmmm……
Next …. what’s the difference between Naked juices / smoothies or Bolthouse juices / smoothies? Well…. the first is price!! Naked comes up at about $.60 more a bottle … taste wise… I did not notice much difference between Naked and Bolthouse juices. I did however think that Naked’s “Green Machine” is not as thick as the Bolthouse “Green Goodness”. The other item I liked about Naked is that they use bottles that are recycled from other bottles…. great for you and great for the environment. But at $.60 more a bottle? … up to you to decide.
Since my Dr. is being mean and making me hold off on wine for a bit …. I’ll stick to my bolthouse juices … they have a great variety and at the amount I drink… that $.60 adds up quickly. My vote — Bolthouse wins for my choice – however, Naked wins for being environmentally responsible! On a side note, it loos like from bolthouse’s website .. they are coming out with salad dressings… mmmm….. can’t wait for that to show up!
