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? 



  1. I really wanted to like this! But as is the flavor was just too unbalanced- definitely better once i added a good splash of orange juice but it was a struggle to finish the bottle even with added oj. There used to be a great beet and purple carrot juice ( before they replaced it with the organic purple carrot juice) and that was much better as a carrot based juice since the earthy beet flavor balanced the carrot. And no overwhelming spices.

  2. I have been drinking this for about a month. My eyesight has improved. Don't know if its the carrots or turmeric. I will keep drinking because it also tastes good.
