This is a sponsored post by Tropicana. I was paid to write about this product and provided coupons for the giveaway. All opinions are my own.
I was recently contacted by Tropicana to write about their new Trop50 with Tea.
Hmm, I thought. Juice. With Tea.
That’s different. And kinda fun. And it’s summer and I like to drink different and kinda fun drinks in the summer because then I feel like one of those fancy people on Pinterest with the fancy drink recipes minus all the hard work. Unless you count opening the bottle of juice hard, which let’s face it, really should count as weight lifting or something. They screw those things on tight, man.
So, I said yes. I will drink your juice with tea and then I will write about it.
And, that’s what I’m doing! I love when I say things and then they happen!
First let me tell you a little about this Trop50 with Tea. It has 50% less sugar and calories and no artificial sweeteners and just a bit of caffeine from the tea. With 35-40 calories in each 8-ounce glass, they provide a full day’s supply of vitamin C.
I’m weird about “diet” drinks and I was skeptical that this would actually taste like juice with tea.
I decided to test out the Raspberry with Green Tea flavor.
Well, it wasn’t super “tea” flavored, but then I don’t think tea has a real strong flavor anyway. It was mostly a light, refreshing raspberry flavored drink and I really enjoyed it.
There wasn’t a strong “diet” drink aftertaste like some of the lower calorie drinks I’ve tried, but there was still a hint of it. I still finished off my bottle with the help of my 7 year old. She could have cared less about the fewer calories (thank you, baby Jesus, we’re still a ways away from that), but she enjoyed the flavor.
We’re mostly a water or iced tea household here (with the exception of my husband who has a soda habit), but this juice with tea was a refreshing change!
