Trader Joe's Organic Carrot Turmeric Juice Blend
This looks like regular ol' carrot juice, and the first one or two seconds that it's in your mouth, it tastes like regular ol' carrot juice. But then you get socked by the other stuff: black pepper, turmeric, and chili pepper. It's not bowl-you-over peppery, but it's definitely more than I expected.
I liked it at first. Then I set it aside for a week or so before I came back to finish it off, and I didn't like it much. My first sample seemed pleasantly bracing; the second was just jarring. The difference surely has much more to do with me being in some sort of different frame of mind the second time than any intrinsic change in the juice. But the result was that I couldn't bring myself to finish it, quite, and poured the last few ounces down the drain before chucking the bottle into the recycling bag.
Will I buy it again?
