Naked Juice Review

Take your clothes off—you’re about to experience the glory of a Naked Juice

Sure it’s upwards of $3. But the pound of juice in every bottle is soooo good.

The all-natural, no-sugar, no-preservative, funny-as-hell juice company began in Santa Monica, California in 1983 with just a blender and a backpack of ice.  Over the next 26 years, Naked Juice would expand to grocery stores and college campuses everywhere, inspiring a Naked juice frenzy that would entice even the most frugal college student to spend up to $3.29 on a bottle.

Naked Juices are divided into seven “families”—Antioxidant, Superfood, Probiotic, Bare Breeze, Well Being, and Protein, giving nearly anyone the opportunity to find the perfect juice.

I decided to try some of the varieties in my own tour de juice. I ended up with Peach Mangosteen Bliss from the Bare Breeze family, Black and Blueberry Rush from the Well Being family and Power-C Machine from the Superfood family, all bought for $2.99 at my local HyVee.

I’m predictable with peach-flavored drinks. Peach is always ok in my book!  So it was no surprise that I choose this delightful combination of mangosteens, peaches and white grapes.  With no seeds or pulp, Peach Mangosteen Bliss is smoother than a lot of the other juices because of the "Bare Breeze"-esque texture.

The juice has an odd goldish color, which I guess works because it kind of looks like a peach.  As far as the smell, Peach Mangosteen Bliss smells more like white grape juice than like the peach or the mangosteen the name promises.  I do, however, like the taste.  I can easily identify the peach and the white grapes, which stand out much more than the mangosteen in this crisp and refreshing drink.

A combination of blueberries, blackberries, apples and bananas, this juice is pretty tasty, even to a reviewer who doesn’t like blueberry drinks.  The color is a deep blueish-purple color that perfectly resembles the black and blueberries inside.  In fact, the drink even tastes like black and blueberries.  I would say the apples and the banana are mainly just fillers; I can’t taste anything but the berries, which is exactly what I wanted.

Black and Blueberry Rush is very smooth, and probably the juiciest juice of the bunch.  As far as blueberries go it was a top contender, but there wasn’t enough of a punch for me. I like it tangy.

Oh. My. Gosh. My fav!

Power-C Machine has quite the list of ingredients (strawberries, guavas, apples and mango, to name a few), plus 285 mg of Vitamin C.  All of these bits of yummy-ness blend amazingly to make a tangy and delectable drink.  I can mostly taste the peach and the guavas, which makes the guava-lover in me very happy.

The color is a bit redder than the Peach Mangosteen Bliss, making it much more appealing to the eye.  The texture is thick and probably nearer to a smoothie than a juice, but it isn’t too much. It makes me feel like I’m actually drinking something that will stick with me.
