I saw a commercial about Fruitables Fruit Juice and decided to check out the website: http://www.appleandeve.com/fruitables.php 

I have to say I am impressed. It is one of the better juice box options out there. There is no added sugar and it is made from all fruits and vegetables.

I checked out some of there other products, like their Cranberry Light: http://www.appleandeve.com/fruitables.php

This I would stay away from and anything that says “light” as it is sweetened with splenda. Splenda is an artificial sweetener and anything artificial isn’t good for you!

I have no idea how these products taste, but over all most of their products are pretty good (ingredients wise), just remember to read the labels before purchasing so you know what you are getting! If I find this product on sale anytime soon I will purchase it and follow up with a “taste test” 🙂
