Innocent Super Smoothie Review: Maybe Just Eat Fruit Instead

I wanted to be a fan of these Innocent Super Smoothies. I really did.

I liked the packaging. The flavors sounded fun and unique. They claimed to be full of vitamins. Thbey all even contain flax seed - the internet told me flax seed is important!

And then I looked at the nutritional information.

All three contain more than the recommended daily allowance of sugar.  Sure, the added viatmins are a plus, but I feel like there are ways of getting those same vitamins without having to eat so much sugar.

"Felicia, I don't care about vitamins. What do these taste like?"

Well..they're okay. 

Energize had a really nice Strawberry flavor that reminded me of Finnish summer. Antioxidant tasted a bit like candy. Defense tasted like regular orange juice with a mild pumpkin aftertaste. But, at just over €2.50 a bottle, I don't think any of them have a flavor that justifies the price point.  

Do you have a new product in Finnish grocery stores you'd like me to review? Leave a comment below and I'll buy it so you don't have to.

Hey Felicia, sorry I deleted my first comment. But have you hear about REKO or visit there yet? :)
