On my last grocery shopping excursion, Snapple Refresh Noni Berry Juice Drink leaped into my grocery cart and made quite a scene by screaming, "Take Me Home NOW" over and over again. It seems this low calorie juice drink really wanted me to try it. Well - who was I to argue, especially since I was curious to find out what "noni juice" tastes like, and more importantly, according to various voodoo priests and suspect internet sources, it's the next cure for whatever ails you because of it's high antioxidant levels.
Well, I don't know if it will help make your body any stronger but Snapple Noni sure tastes good. It's not too sweet and the flavor is sort of like an apple and pear mix. In other words, generic since just about every "juice drink" has 1 or both of these juices mixed in, but this was still good for the drinkin'. Since the name is "Snapple Refresh" I waited 10 minutes to see if I would feel ... refreshed ... and well, I was still tired from my long day, and I still wanted more than anything to go take a bath and curl up with a good book - I'm reading City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare and it's double awesome sauce!!
But I digress - in short, this left me feeling just as refreshed as any other beverage does, but I really liked the flavor and I really liked that each 1 cup serving of Snapple Refresh Noni Berry Juice Drink provides only 15 calories and 1 gram of sugar.
The ingredients are filtered water, pear and noni juice concentrates, citric acid, potassium citrate, natural flavors, aspartame, vegetable and fruit juices (for color), natural green tea extract (source of EGCG), sugar, caffeine, acaia gum, sucralose.
This flavor definitely gives Snapple Diet Trop-A-Rocka Tea some competition, and I would buy it again - but I'm not buying it for any potential health benefits. I'm usually a plain water type of person, but not all the time - a girl needs some flavor every now and again.
Under every Snapple cap is a "Real Fact." The bottle I purchased, which cost $1.49, had "Real Fact #859" which said, "George Washington took the oath of office in New York City in 1789.
