Ocean Spray® Whole Berry™ Review...


Happy Saturday.

I am not looking forward to today as they have forecast snow and a temperature of -10 degrees.

I think I will leave Parkrun again this week and make a comeback, another week.

Ekk, it was beautiful and warm yesterday too.

Think I will have a nice breakfast instead.

A glass of tasty, yummy goodness for breakfast anyone?


Earlier this week I kindly got sent some Ocean Spray® Crushed whole cranberry fruit juice to try. Lovely.


I have been meaning to buy some cranberry juice for a while now as I have heard how good it is for you.

I am on a new fitness plan and have read that cranberry juice can also be a healthy addition to your weight loss plan. I have also read that it can also help in combating certain infections and diseases.

Got to be worth a try then?!


Another few interesting facts are Ocean Spray® Whole Berry™.Cranberries Juice is:
  • There are over 40 whole cranberries in a glass of Ocean Spray® Whole Berry™.
  • Cranberries are also packed with nutrients to help boost overall health. 
Sounds good to me!


Reassessing your health and fitness goals and what you put into your and your family’s body? 
It’s time to pay homage to this innovative juice made with crushed whole cranberries (40 in every 200ml glass to be precise) and not just the juice, because Ocean Spray® Whole Berry™ includes the skin, seeds and flesh in its juices so, unlike most juices, you get maximum nutritional benefit and the same goodness from eating whole fruits.


About Ocean Spray® Whole Berry™:

Ocean Spray® Whole Berry™ is deliciously tasty, velvety on the tongue and sumptuously thick in texture with absolutely no added sugar or preservatives.

So if you love juice, what better way to kickstart your day than with this super tasty, super nutritious and zingy fruit juice drink blend?


A recent survey of 10,637 shoppers by Product of the Year, rating the best products of 2018, voted Ocean Spray Whole BerryTM as the best and most innovation drink to hit supermarket shelves in the past twelve months.

The humble cranberry is one of the most nutrient-dense fruits. Cranberries are a good source of fibre and naturally contain: 
  • Antioxidants (including Polyphenols)
  • Vitamin C
  • Proanthocyanidins (PACs)


Made with crushed whole cranberries, every 200ml serving of Ocean Spray® Whole Berry™ is one serve of fruit.


It is available in two delicious flavours and got chance to try both out:

Cranberry – Crushed whole cranberry fruit juice blend

Cranberry, Raspberry, Blueberry & Strawberry – crushed whole mixed fruit juice blend

Available in Sainsbury’s, Waitrose, Asda, Co-Op and Booths (850ml, RRP £2.99).


As soon as the children noticed the Ocean Spray® Whole Berry™ juices in the fridge, they wanted to open them and try it straight away.

We all thought it tasted really fruity and very yummy. It has a lovely thick consistency to it and is nothing like I imagined it would taste.

Everyone in the house thought it was delicious and very moreish. So much so, that 2 cartons were gone in a day. Oops, perhaps too much of a good thing.

Definitely brings the sunshine inside you on a cold day. It reminds me of Summer. Summer where are you!!

I think we all loved the Cranberry, Raspberry, Blueberry & Strawberry the most as this one went straight away. Both flavours taste great though. 

Would I buy this juice?

Yes, I would.

I am going to look out for this in the fridge isle when we next go shopping.

My children love fruit juice with their breakfast before they brush their teeth and go off to school for the day. This drink gives them a good boost of vitamins before they leave. What's not to like?!

  8. I tend to stay away from fruit juice due to the amount of sugar involved. I have never tried Ocean Spray, I wonder how healthy it is.

    1. Thanks for the comment. Yes, I know what you mean. We usually limit our juice to morning before breakfast and then the children brush their teeth. I think fruit sugars are better for you though!? This juice does say no added sugar :)

  12. I find cranberry juice a little too bitter and dry for me, but when you mix it with other berries it becomes much more palatable. I haven't tried some of the new combinations, only the cranberry and raspberry, so I'll have to give some others a try.
