I don't think I would purchase these full-price, but with coupons they make a nice occasional treat from water. They would also be perfect for when you are sick, since they have all sorts of added vitamins. I don't know that I would go straight to "love" for Fruitsense...though I do strongly "like" it. Have you tried Fruitsense? What did you think?

Last time Shoppers had triple coupons I picked up several bottles of Old Orchard Fruitsense drinks. The first flavor I tried was the key lime colada. Blech! The coconut left a very chemically aftertaste. It was baaaad. I decided to give the juice another chance (since I still had several bottles) and opened the kiwi dragonfruit one afternoon. It is labeled the "energy" flavor and I really needed energy that day. I was pleasantly surprised at the taste - MUCH better - light and fruity; it tasted like watered down juice. (But not like apple juice, you know how some juices are labeled "strawberry banana cocktail" or whatever and you look at the ingredients and it's apple and grape juice? I hate that!) It actually seemed to work giving me energy too. I don't know if it was actually the "energy" properties or just the fact that I took the time to drink something, but I had more spring in my step to deal with the rest of the day. I have also tried the pomegranate blueberry mangosteen flavor and while I didn't like it as well as the kiwi, it also has a pleasantly light taste. There are two other flavors of Fruitsense: cranberry raspberry & tangerine grapfruit, but I didn't have THAT many coupons :)
