Review: Isn’t this the most disgusting glass of ick you’ve ever seen? It’s actually a wonderful tasting blend of vegetable and fruit juices. I think I first noticed it last summer after I watched “Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead” and was a little more aware of the juicing movement. It took me almost a year to finally buy it and now I’m hooked!
Now, I’m not positive if this juice has the same benefits of the juice that you would make at home, and I don’t really care either. After drinking almost a whole bottle I’ve found that it’s a nice sweet treat to add into the rotation. It works perfectly when I want something sweet as a mid-day snack.
