Cheribundi Review!

Cheribundi was gracious to send me a box of their wonderful juice to try and share my opinions with you all in blogland! It just took me long enough to try it and sit down to share my thoughts.

Cheribundi information, straight from their website:

Fifty Cherries: Our Tru Cherry™ juice packs fifty cherries into a short 8oz bottle. (We know because we counted them.) From there we add just enough water and apple juice to make it palate-perfect. Of course, to create the benefits of Skinny Cherry™ we decrease the cherries slightly and sweeten with natural Stevia. To get the benefits of Whey Cherry™ into a bottle, we add whey protein.

Freshness: The word "concentrate" isn't in our vocabulary. Our juice is freshly made with America's Superfruit™ grown in Michigan and New York. Other juices are made from concentrate once a year and then stored before you even get to drink them. Not cheribundi™, though. That's why it tastes so darn fresh.

Phytonutrients: These are the building blocks in fruits and vegetables, so they're good for you. They help plants grow and regenerate cells properly and they just may help regulate physiological functions in human, too. Cherries have a powerful combination of these nutrients, which provides more benefits than any other fruit or other good-for-you foods like tea, wine and other juices. ...

Vitamins and Minerals: .... In cheribundi™ you'll find Vitamin A, Potassium, Iron, Calcium and, in Whey Cherry™, muscle-growing B-Vitamins!

High ORAC Rating: The Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity rating for cheribundi™ is higher than other juices - that means our juice has a
better ability to absorb and neutralize free radicals. Whether you're exercising or resting, cheribundi™ is working hard for you!

They sent me two bottles of the Tru Cherry, one bottle of Whey Cherry, and one bottle of Skinny Cherry. I just taste-tested the Whey Cherry and Skinny Cherry and thought they both were good. After my swim workout Wednesday night, I needed a snack and remembered reading about Wes (thanks for the idea, Wes) using this juice in a smoothie. So, I put something similar together using the Tru Cherry:

1/2 banana
1/2 serving chocolate Whey protein powder
1/2 c. strawberries
1/2 bottle of Tru Cherry
and ice

It was so yummy! It was very fruity with a little bit of tartness! Definitely hit the spot!

Have you ever tried Cheribundi? Do you have any cool recipe ideas to use this in other than smoothies or drinking it by itself?

I definitely like the idea of that protein-cherry-smoothie! Yum!

I tried it and found that I was allergic to it. It tasted good before the reaction. Great review.

Shannon said...

I haven't heard of this. But it sounds really good!

Jamie said...

That sounds really yummy. I wish they sold Cheribundi where I live!

I've heard ~4 other bloggers rave about the product. My question is which is better: just having ~20 cherries or the juice?

Em said...

I have never heard of this either, but it sounds like something that I will have to try!

Thanks for the review :)

I have got to try this stuff! I will for sure use your smoothie recipe:)

Lisa said...

I need to do a review as well. I didn't try anything fun, just drank it straight up. Yum!

Jess said...

I haven't tried it (not much of a juice person), but i have read several reviews of it, and everyone seems to enjoy it.

Kelly said...

I just recently tried Cheribundi too but I haven't attempted any recipes yet. I made a pom reduction for my salmon earlier this year so I might try to recreate something like that with the cheribundi, I bet it would be good!

I'm always looking for new flavors of smoothies and salad viniegrettes (sp?) and I never thought of cherry. I hope I can find this in my local grocery store.

Mary said...

I haven't heard of it! I would love to see pics of what you come up with and all that you try!

Scott Keeps Running said...

Sounds good. I've seen a couple thumbs up about it now.

Jess said...

Hmmm everyone seems to be enjoying the juice in a smoothie. I might have to try that tonight.
