I was recently given the opportunity to review Cheribundi
Cheribundi is tart cherry juice that currently comes in these great FLAVORS:
Tru Cherry-The original tart cherry juice
Skinny Cherry– Less calories than than the original tart cherry juice
Whey Cherry– Protein added to the original tart cherry juice
Cacao Cherry– Chocolate flavor added to the original tart cherry-YUM!
Ginger Cherry-Fresh ginger taste added to the original tart cherry
I really liked the taste of the Tru Cherry. I told my husband it tasted exactly like I was drinking a cherry. He tried some and quickly agreed. We both think that anyone who likes tart cherries, would like this flavor.
The next day I tried the Skinny Cherry. I could only tell a slight difference in taste between the Skinny Cherry and the Tru Cherry. I was pleased to see I could get the same cherry taste with 40 fewer calories (in the 8 oz bottle). Tru Cherry is sweetened with stevia and was a little less tart. I don’t like to “drink” too calories in my day, so I consider this one a great option.
I was happy to try they Whey Cherry and not taste a chalky textured drink. This one has an extra 8 grams of whey protein added to help aid in recovery after a good workout.
The Cacao Cherry reminded me of dessert. I always love a good chocolate dessert, so I’m definitely a fan of this flavor. Just like chocolate covered cherries! This flavor is the only one with added sugar.
When I first opened the Ginger Cherry, I could smell the ginger right away. I thought it was going to be too strong for me. After a few sips, I decided the ginger flavor was strong, but still tasty.
If I had to pick a favorite, I would choose the Skinny Cherry. Great taste and fewer calories!
A good idea for those who may not like the taste of the tart cherry juice on its own…try mixing it with other ingredients and make a smoothie. YUM!
So why would someone want to drink Tart Cherry Juice? According to an insert that Cheribundi sent me, Dr. Oz highlighted the health benefits of tart cherry juice. Known as the “Ultimate Antioxidant Beverage,” tart cherry juice:
- Provides pain relief: tart cherry juice has been shown to block enzymes that cause inflammation
- Performs as a sleep aid: tart cherry juice has been shown to encourage melatonin production. Melatonin is a hormone secreted in the brain that brings on sleep
- Fights heart disease: tart cherry juice helps fight triglycerides, which is a chemical form of fat in foods.
