I've been looking for that old-school cranberry juice taste of my youth, for years. The way it tasted in Ocean Spray juice boxes in the 1980s. I've been drinking the 100% Juice Cranberry for years, but wanted to try something without the other juices added. So, despite not liking that this isn't 100% juice (which isn't easily noticeable, as it has "100%" in large print on the front, though it's talking about Vitamin C, you have to closely read the label on the back, to understand that it's not 100% juice, as many other Ocean Spray products proudly displaying "100%" on the label, are), & has sugar added (though it's better than using high fructose corn syrup), I gave this a try, & had high hopes. Unfortunately, I won't be buying this again. It was cold, sweet, and very, very vaguely fruity tasting. I couldn't taste any cranberry in it at all. I don't know how to 'recapture the magic' of pure, tart, healthy cranberry juice (yes, I had the Pure before this, & will be reviewing that, too).
