Product Review: Trop 50 Pomegranate Blueberry

The good people over at Tropicana were kind enough to send me a product to review and I jumped at the opportunity to share my thoughts with you lovely readers :)

About Trop50 Pomegranate Blueberry
  • Contains 50% less sugar than the leading %100 pomegranate blueberry juice beverages
  • Naturally sweetened with Reb A, a natural sweetener derived from the stevia plant (brand name Pure Via)
  • An excellent source of vitamin C, E and antioxidants
  • Each 250 ml dose contains 60 calories, 14g carbohydrates and 12 g sugars

I was very excited to try this as I know that pomegranates and blueberries are nutritional power houses.  I also know that they can be quite tart.   I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical at first when I heard it was made with stevia.  I am not always impressed with stevia as I find overpowering and sometimes bitter.

I was pleasantly surprised with Trop 50.  It is absolutely delicious.  The pomegranate and blueberry flaovur is strong (which I really like) with just a slight sweetness from the Reb A.  I was enjoying it as a spritzer (1/4 cup juice with 1 cup club soda).  This not only tasted great it a) made my bottle last longer and b) has even fewer calories and sugar per serving. 

How do you feel about stevia in beverages?

Stay Healthy,
