Review: Main St. Cafe Protein Smoothie – Peach & Mixed Berry


Main St. Cafe Protein Smoothie Peach

We liked Main St. Cafe Protein Smoothies quite a bit, with special emphasis on the Peach flavor. Interesting products as they are shelf-stable, but potentially offer the opportunity for dairy/smoothie products to reach a wider audience than what we’re currently seeing in the beverage marketplace.

Review: Zola Superfood Smoothie


Zola Superfood Smoothie

Zola Superfood Smoothie is one of the better smoothies by Zola. For a “green” health drink, it was surprising how sweet it was, as many drinks with greens can be more vegetable-like and thicker. This was much more drinkable.

Review: Sunkist Naturals Golden Mango


Sunkist Naturals Golden Mango

Sunkist Naturals Golden Mango is a good drink, and I would recommend it to those who like juice smoothies. It has a clean, but flavorful taste, avoiding the acidity that some drinks offer. The freshness, nutrition, and taste combine to make this a strong entry in the smoothie market.

Review: Zola Energy Smoothie


Zola Energy Smoothie

Zola Energy Smoothie features a blend of caja fruit & acai. The taste is similar to the Antioxidant Smoothie, but better, with less aftertaste. Does it truly add a burst of energy? That is debatable and definitely a matter of taste.

Review: Sunkist Naturals Strawberry Dream


Sunkist Naturals Strawberry Dream

Sunkist Naturals Strawberry Dream is a quality smoothie product made from fine ingredients. Unfortunately, it probably should be renamed “Banana Dream With A Hint Of Strawberry” due to the weak berry flavor. Visually appealing and still tasty, the branding on this product influenced my perceptions in a way that created an unmet expectation on flavor.

Review: Zola Antioxidant Smoothie


Zola Antioxidant Smoothie

Zola Antioxidant Smoothie features a blend of acai berries and banana. However, we found the taste somewhat odd, almost olive-like in nature. With a purple/orange color, it was not what we expected. However, those seeking an antioxidant-specific drink may want to explore this option.

Review: Sunkist Naturals Glorious Greens


Sunkist Naturals Glorious Greens

Despite the odd green color found in Sunkist Naturals Glorious Greens, I was pleasantly surprised by the taste. With a balance of apple, kiwi, and other smoothie-ish flavors, this drink hit the spot. Hats off to the solid packaging design as well, which drew in a non-smoothie drinker like myself with its nice visuals and familiar brand name.

Review: Zola Immunity Smoothie


Zola Immunity Smoothie

Zola Immunity Smoothie is described as a “Tangy Tart Blend of Acerola & Acai.” With a pineapple scent, and a yellow/orange color, the taste is fresh, but not what we were expecting. However, the flavor gets better the more you drink it; it grows on you.
