One of my favorite things about summer is the variety of fruit that’s available at a great price. My refrigerator is stocked with watermelon, peaches, plums and berries. Just this morning I made blueberry pancakes with the fresh blueberries that I picked up at the Farmers Market this week.
I love the flavor of blueberry, but had NEVER actually experienced it as a JUICE until last week when I popped open a couple of the newest Ocean Spray Blueberry Juice Drinks. What I was expecting was a THICK, almost syrupy flavor that I thought might be difficult to stomach. Instead what I got was a juice with just the RIGHT amount of tartness and rich blueberry flavor to HOOK ME IN.
Both Ocean Spray Blueberry Juice Cocktail as well as the Ocean Spray Blueberry Pomegranate Juice Drink are both chock full of Vitamin C as well as that nice balance of sweet and tart that I love.
- Naturally Sweetened
- Vitamin C
- No Artificial Colors or Flavors
I also tried the Craisins® Blueberry Juice Infused Dried Cranberries and I immediately added them to my salad (along with walnuts and gorgonzola cheese). OMG – I LOVE the combination of the blueberry/cranberry alongside the strong cheese. Next – I’m going to add them to my Sour Cream Blueberry Coffee Cake. I still plan to use fresh blueberries, but I think that a handfull of these Craisins will perk up my old tired recipe.
Last week Ocean Spray teamed up with Jet Blue in New York’s Greeley Square on Tuesday, June 15th., in order to celebrate the release of their new blueberry product line, Ocean Spray assembled a gigantic display and teamed up with JetBlue Airlines to give away exciting travel prizes and free samples to those that attended. I wish that I could have been there, because it looks like they had a GREAT time.
