When you're run off your feet at the office, there's barely time to throw some instant coffee granules into a plastic cup of hot water, let alone head to shops for a freshly-squeezed orange juice. So, when we heard that there was a new range of healthy soft drinks out there, we decided to give them a whirl. Goodbye, tins of Coca Cola and murky cups of questionable tea. Hello fruity goodness.
Well, it's worth saying now that BerryWhite - great name, that. MT can hear the great man's dulcet tones with every sip - isn't as good for you as you may think. It may not contain artificial sweeteners or any added sugar, but there's still a tooth-crumbling amount of the sweet stuff in there - enough to make 115 calories per bottle. We couldn't find the exact amount in the ingredients list or online, but MT's teeth squeaked after downing a bottle of the Pomegranate & Blueberry flavour.
That said, these are pretty tasty. The Lemon, Ginger & Acai Berry is our favourite - the lemon and ginger give it a bit of a kick, but it's sweet enough to taste a bit naughty. Plus, Acai Berries are superfoods, packed with nutrients, or so the spiel goes - and we're a sucker for all that stuff. Goji Berries (another superfood!) & Peaches was also darn tasty. Like a summer iced tea meets a lollipop.
