100% Cherry Juice
February 3rd—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read; price & availability may have changed.
Dark red-pigmented fruits are well known for their abundance of antioxidants. Cherries = dark-red pigment, and an antioxidant extravaganza. Our 100% Cherry Juice, in the curvy bottle, is a blend of tart, sour, and sweet cherry juices from varieties such as Prunus Cerasus (tart), Prunus Acida (tart), Prunus Fructicosa (sour), and Prunus Avium (sweet). The different cherry varieties combine to make a juice that's easy to drink and loaded with antioxidants. With all this going for it, 100% Cherry Juice is a perennial favorite in our stores.
Trader Joe's 100% Cherry Juice comes to us from the Caucasus Mountains/Black Sea region of Georgia - the country that lies at the intersection of Eastern Europe and Western Asia, not the state that lies in the heart of the southeastern United States. This area is home to some of the world's finest cherries - they're generally referred to as "sour" or "tart". We find the juice significantly sweeter than our Red Tart Cherry Juice. Unlike some cherry juices, this is a very easy juice to drink, with or without mixers. One of the sippers on our tasting panel described it as tasting "like a good, not overly sweet, cherry pie". We'll go with that.
We'll also go with our excellent price of $3.99 for each 32 ounce glass bottle. You'll find 100% Cherry Juice on the shelves with our other bottled juices and teas.
