Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: I Am Fresh Seasonal Apple, Mango and Red Pepper juice Confirmed sighting: I Am Fresh Seasonal Apple, Mango and Red Pepper juice
Posted: 18:18 Tue 10-Apr-2007. Price: 1.89/ 250ml. Location: Waitrose, Finchley Road, London. Nutritional unusualness: "2 portions of fruit per bottle", claims to be "100% irresistibly fruity, bursting with flavour" etc - but no longer "Your healthy happy friend"?
Snackspot reports: Normally it's carrot or nothing when you mix vegetable and fruit juices, so well done to the I Am Fresh folks for coming up with a product that tastes distinctively different but isn't like drinking a salad. At this price, I can't see myself buying it often, but it's a lot more original than these Mumtaz Lassis (in Mandarin or Strawberry, 79p/ 250ml, Tesco), or PepsiCo/ PJ Smoothies' (Transvision Vamp-inspired?) Fruit Kick (in Strawberry and Blackcurrant, or Orange, Mango and Pineapple, 1.99 for 6 x 100ml, Sainsbury's).

...In substantially fizzier fruitiness, "Matthew" was the first of several to highlight the news that Coca-Cola with Orange is due here in July - while, back in non-sparkling, Ibis Organics' Simply Hibi (1.09/ 250ml, Waitrose) is a non-alcholic hibiscus-flavoured drink that's so vividly purple, you can use it to re-enact the mentat scene from the Dune movie - all together now: "It is by will alone I set my mind in motion..."

Comment: Red Pepper juice - Gross

Comment: I dunno, I like red peppers a lot, sounds like a nice mix but the price is an outrage.

Suspect the Coke-with-orange product may be a rebrand of Germany's long-popular Mezzo-Mix/Spezi?

Comment: EUUURRRGGG... Not another word, bobince. I don't know what you're concocting in that brain of yours about how this drink is nice (when it isn't! Red peppers= Makes me suicidal!).

Comment: Charl, you should drink that Diet Coke with Lime. There's nothing wrong with a BBE. They still taste fine.

Comment: i did, thanks electric apple! we've managed to find the very last diet coke with limes on earth (it seems) with a bbe of dec 06, so i am really going to be testing that logic soon! :)
