Are you a fan of tomato juice? Well, if you are, you've got to check out Mott's Garden Blend Vegetable Juice. Each 8 ounce serving (1 cup) provides only 45 calories, is 100% Vegetable Juice and has two servings of vegetables.
For those of you who are not fans of tomato juice, then you probably won't like Mott's Garden Blend Vegetable Juice. The ingredients are water, tomato paste, pepper juice, celery, vinegar, carrot juice concentrate, sea salt, onion juice, salt, ascorbic acid (vitamin C), dill juice, carrot juice, natural flavors, onion and garlic powder, soy lecithin. The taste is strongly of the tomato juice.
Mott's Unsweetened Applesauce has almost become a staple in my dorm room. Immediately upon arriving home from the store, I place them in the freezer so that I can have a creamy, cold treat anytime that I want (just peel off the aluminum and microwave for about 20 seconds, give or take). However, every now and then I branch off and try some of the flavored varieties to keep things interesting. I knew that when I ran across Mott's Strawberry Banana Applesauce, this would be one of those times.
When I pulled it out of the freezer (after thawing it out enough to dig in), I found it tastes like a strawberry banana smoothie - weird I know, but it's the most delicious thing. The flavors are so natural and take your taste buds to a whole different level than traditional applesauce flavors. The texture of the applesauce stands, tried and true, but the phenomenal flavor profile takes it up a notch or two.
Alas, the nutrition profile leaves a little to be desired - I just wish the sugar count was not twice that of the no sugar added variety. Each 4 ounce cup of Mott's Strawberry Banana Applesauce provides 90 calories, no fat or sodium, 1 gram of fiber (4% of the RDA), 21 grams of sugar and no protein.
Mott's describes their Mott's Plus Light Apple Juice, "is a refreshing juice specially formulated for health-conscious adults who are counting calories. And it's full of added benefits you're sure to love: Fortified with 100% vitamin C, vitamin D and calcium plus it has 50% less calories and sugar than 100% apple juice." Well, with a description like that, I decided to see what it was all about.
When I got home, I poured myself a glass and noted that this was definitely lighter than regular apple juice. Not pale - just lighter. I took a sip and was shocked to find that it tasted like ... apple juice! No off flavors, nothing funky, and it still has that slightly-thicker-than-water mouth feel. In a way, it made me think of Trop50 - the only real noticeable difference between this and real juice is appearance.
Each 8 ounce serving of Mott's Plus Light Apple Juice provides 60 calories, not fat, 14 grams of sugars and 20% of the daily value for vitamin D along with 100% DV vitamin C.
