Product Review: Tropicana Trop50

NOTE: I found a 12 fl oz bottle in the grocer and tried it for this review.  In the 12 oz, there is 50% of your daily calcium in in the 12 ounces. 

My first taste was a little disappointing, clearly a watered down juice and really sweet.  Also, I'm not a big fan of the PureVia sweetner, because of the super sweet taste it leaves.  Also, there is 42% juice in this bottle, the first ingredient listed is water - so be aware that it isn't going to taste like full flavored orange juice.  Outside of those things, really this juice tasted pretty good.  I compaired nutritional labels for the 8oz serving of their original w/ calcium version and this is definately a better option calorie, fat and sugar wise. So it stands to say, yes I could water down my own tropicana oj and save the money.  So ask yourself these questions: Do I need a lower calorie option to oj? Am I diabetic or watching my sugar intake? Do I need an alternative means to get my calcium?  If you answered yes to any of these questions - give it a try.
