Poland Spring Nature’s Blends Water Juice Drinks
Poland Spring Water with real juice? Not sure about the move, but since everyone wants to be healthy, I guess adding real juice to the pure water won’t contaminated the taste right? The new Poland Spring beverage line brings their spring water to a new level by combine it with real juice. On the bottle label, “Poland Spring brings you a delicious combination of natural spring water, real juice and pure cane sugar for a crisp, clean taste experience.” Well, they call it Poland Spring Nature’s Blend. Each flavor contains 5% juice and they are all concentrated juice.
Poland Spring Nature’s Blends Lemon drink
There’s a strong lemon aroma coming out from the bottle when you first popped it open and it smelled just like the lemon drinks that were made using powders. It reminded of Gatorade powder drinks that I used to drink back in the days. The color and the texture of this Poland Spring Nature’s Blends Lemon drink looked similar to pure coconut water beverages with out pulp. As for the taste, the first sip tasted half water and half lemon. There’s wasn’t any sour taste until you had couple sips down. As you drink more, you get the medicine kind of taste feeling every time you swallow down a sip. The tartness taste was there as well after you swallow down the sip. Even though the drink was smooth enough to chug down, but the taste wasn’t natural and it’s not even close to your home made lemon juice drinks. It tasted close to lemon flavored powder drinks. There’s a dryness feeling in the mouth after finishing the whole 20 fl oz bottle.
Poland Spring Nature’s Blends Strawberry drink
The aroma coming out from this bottle was light and it smelled close to strawberry flavored vitamin water. The color and the texture for this drink looked exactly like vitamin water beverages. As for the taste, it didn’t taste that bad compared to the previous flavor in the first couple sips. It was smooth, clean and easy to drink. Also, it was difficult to sense what the actually flavor was suppose to be in the beginning and to me it tasted more like pomegranate than strawberry in the beginning. After chug down half of the bottle, the dryness feeling for the aftertaste got stronger and the strawberry flavor was light. It tasted close to fruity vitamin water. There’s a subtle tart taste after you swallow down the sip. This one has the same aftertaste as the previous flavor.
