I loved Simply Orange so much that when I had the opportunity to pick up Simply Mixed Berry I said heck yeah!
The company sent me two coupons for two containers of the beverage which would have come to around $10.
They also sent a lot of entertaining swag like these giant globe ice cube makers! I attempted to make berry-filled ice globes with them but only one really turned out. Thankfully I put the mold on a square baking tray so I did not have water all over my freezer floor!
Sadly the cubes did not fit into the lovely glass that they sent me but the juice went in very nicely. Real cranberry, strawberry, blueberry and raspberry juices with no added preservatives, colors or artificial flavours. That is really berry goodness in a glass!
The calorie count is pretty typical of most beverages at 110 per 250 mL but I must comment and say sugar is the second ingredient listed. Before any of the juices!
The first ingredient is filtered water but it does not taste watery at all.
Berries tend to be not very high on the sweetness scale so I am not surprised that they added sugar but I am not sure how necessary it was. I did find it a tad sweet.
I did get one of the ice cubes into each of these glasses but one got stuck! So make sure if you get one of those globe ice cube trays that you use it in a very wide glass.
I enjoyed this beverage. It was refreshing and it tasted like real berries but I think they could have held back a little on the sweetness which would have also made calorie-counting foodies much more inclined to purchase the product.
This product had lots of flavour but I think could have been a little healthier and less self-indulgent. Still, I really liked it. As a result, I give the product four out of five wooden spoons.
Not made from concentrate ? that is good news. Is that the one they use to have at McDonalds’ ? loved that sh*t 😉
thanks for the review.

Yes, not from concentrate is awesome! I think McD’s has Fruitopia. You’re welcome! Glad you enjoyed the review Nolwenn!

As a cartoonist, I can tell you love your art. That’s where the fun is. So silly and fun but I do the same thing. Draw this silly stuff but gosh darn, it makes me happy.
Keep up the great work.
