Trader Joe's Mango Lemonade
I shouldn't like this. It's mostly sugar water, with some mango puree and lemon juice added. It's fully in line with the big-jug juice "blends" that Nina and I have condemned here too many times.
But I do kinda like it. The mango and lemon are nicely balanced. The sweetness is subdued enough that if I'm not paying attention, I can believe that it's natural sugar from the fruits, even though it really isn't. It feels refreshing.
I don't want to think about it too much, or I'll analyze my way out of liking it.
Will I buy it again?
Probably not. It was an interesting and pleasant change-up, but I really prefer straight lemonade.
