A few weeks ago, The Juice Shed Company were lovely enough to send me out a box of their Juice Fuel Cola to sample and today, i’m going to give you the facts, and share my thoughts with you all. I was send, 3x Juicy Fuel. Original Cola, and 3x Juicy Fuel Cherry Cola.
So Juicy Fuel Cola is 100% natural craft cola, and is also one of your 5 a day and was originally developed on 2007 as a beverage sold solely in schools in the UK.
No Added Sugar
No Added Sweeteners
Sounds promising right?
The first thing I did when opening up my package, was scan it into my fitness pal. Because I’m trying to track my macros, this is always the first thing I do these days. So I’m going to include them in this post for anyone interested.
I scanned both cans, each of which had the same result, so for a 250ml can, the results were:
So where exactly can you buy Juicy Fuel in store? Currently, its available in Tesco, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s, Waitrose and Asda.
Onto the tasting..
I went for the Original Cola version first and in all honesty, I wasn’t blown away. Im not sure if this is because I’ve drank Coca Cola for so long to fix my sugar urges, but I find it really hard to find an alternative brand I like. It wasn’t quite as fizzy as I like my drinks and tasted a little flat to me, but overall, it wasn’t actually a bad drink. Would I pick this up in store? Well, currently I’m trying extremely hard to not drink fizzy drinks, or if I do, to drink something like a coke zero or a diet irn bru, for the calorie and carb content in this, I’d probably just stick to allowing myself a full fat Coca Cola or Irn Bru come treat day.
The cherry however… game changer. I actually thoroughly enjoyed this, it reminded me very much of Dr Pepper and in all honestly, I’d probably pick this over regular Dr Pepper any day. Nice and sweet – without being overly sweet, and just enough of a cherry taste to not be too overpowering. I may have even went back for a second can later…
Overall the products are pretty damn good. Personal favourite right here is the cherry. The Juice Shed Company are also releasing a blueberry version which you can bet i’ll be snapping up to give a try if its even half as good as their cherry one.
