Over the weekend, I served as a taste-tester for früsh along with a few other bloggers–Shameika (TheMofochronicles.Com), CM Writer (YBBF.Com), and Tamara (BlitzandGlam.Com). As I’ve posted before, I’m a woman who often calorie counts and keeps a close eye on her figure. So when CM Writer introduced früsh as a possible meal replacement yogurt/smoothie, I was geeked to have a sip. Apparently, this product is being marketed as inexpensive healthy food.
Once I popped the top, the drink appeared to be more of a yogurt than a smoothie; it was thick and creamy. Even so, I proceeded to drink. This sip felt more like a slurp, for the texture called for more gulping than easy swallowing. Think yogurt in a bottle.
In hopes that this drink would live up to healthy food stardom, I checked its label. As you can see below, this product is high in sugar with a running total of 33g. While this calcium-enriched product offers vitamin A, C and Iron: it doesn’t quite compensate for the sugar content that it embodies.
- True to it’s strawberry taste.
- Offers Calcium, Iron, Vitamin A, Vitamin C
- Low in calories, only 200
- High in sugar content – 33g similar to that of sodas
- Too thick to be a smoothie
