Cheribundi Tart Cherry Juice Review & Giveaway

I couldn't think of a better way to end the weekend than with a giveaway for all of my sweet readers! I was contacted by Cheribundi and they sent me a box of samples, asking me to do a review on some of their fabulous products!

They are also offering a box of 12, 8-oz tart cherry juices (multiple flavors!) to one Real Food Runner blog reader! But first, a review. :-)



I learned something new today - cherries are considered a superfood! Why? Because they're packed with phytonutrients, and tons of vitamins and minerals. I was surprised to discover cherries contain 19x the amount of vitamin A compared to blueberries and strawberries!



Each bottle of Cheribundi contains the juice from 45-50 cherries.



I was happiest with the ingredient list on the TruCherry because it contains only 2 ingredients: tart cherry juice, apple juice (from concentrate). Amazing! I especially like how this one tastes. The tartness from the cherries makes it different than most fruit juices which is fun. :) 


They even have a protein version! This one has the most ingredients (14 total) and also contains milk, but tastes great!


Ginger is a great addition to help keep our immune systems good and strong!


I'm a big fan of cacao so I'm looking forward to giving this one a try! The ingredients on this Cheribundi are: tart cherry juice, apple juice, sugar, water, cocoa powder, natural flavor and lactic acid. I think this is the only Cheribundi that contains added sugar. 

To enter the Cheribundi Giveaway:


#2 - Leave a comment on this post telling me which Cheribundi flavor you are most interest in and why. {Also leave your contact info so I know how to get in touch with you if you win :-) }

#3 - Comment on the Real Food Runner FB page - telling me what health food you would like to see reviewed next. :) 

That's it! You're entered for a chance to win a box full of 12, 8-oz Cheribundi cherry juices!

The winner will be announced next weekend, August 24th. Be sure to check back then to see if you're the winner!!! 


I tried dandelion greens in my smoothie for the first time today! A great choice for detoxing and cleansing. :) 

I went for a 3 mile run this morning after a quick cleaning spree which felt wonderful. Prep for house guests is great motivation to get on top of those cabinets and clean out those closets!

Have a "cherry" weekend!

Nothing like house guests to motivate me to clean as well!
The type of Cheribundi I would most like to try is Tru Cherry. I love fresh cherries so I think I would enjoy the juice. I also went to facebook and "liked" your page and Cheribundis :)
Thanks for sharing!

Thanks, Sally!

This sounds good. The cherry is not too tart? I think I would be interested in trying the ginger cherry. Maybe would be good added to the dandelion green smoothie? I've added those to my smoothies before but find the leaves quite strong.

I liked them on facebook! I've never seen this product before, but sounds delicious. I'd love to try the cacao cherry or ginger. Both sound yum! As for health foods to review - I'm not sure, maybe other "new" health snacks.

Cacao cherry sounds good. And I agree I love having house guests because it gets me off my butt and clean the house like it really should be cleaned! I went for a 3 mile bike ride today after ages (we just bought a cycle this friday) and I am soo pooped since a lot of the ride was uphill (coming downhill was fun though). I run about 3 miles every other day, but I never knew cycling could be soooo tough! I would have loved one of these drinks after the ride! Liked cheribundi on facebook.

Thanks for visiting my blog! I am interested in the Ginger Cherry - I love ginger, its health benefits, and sounds like quite the combination! You can get in touch with me via my blog, or email me at leah.fiedler@gmail.com. There is no particular food I would like to see, but I'm always looking for fresh recipes that are easy and quick to prepare - if you have any ideas!

Oh my goodness, I have never come across these Cheribundi juices before, they look deliscious (and the bottles look so cute!) Ive only ever tried beetroot juice shots (which I added to a smoothie and also porridge - yum!). I'd most like to try the Tru Cherry. Im so addicted to ANYTHING cherry at the moment so I think these juices would really hit the spot!

Athena Russell said...

My favorite of the Cheribundi juices so far is the Skinny Cherry. It tastes like cherry pie. The only one I haven't tried yet is the Tru Cherry. I'm sure I'll like that one too. I've been mixing the other flavors in my smoothies in the mornings...so tasty. Thanks again for having the contest and choosing me as a winner.

As a result, many researchers have moved towards the benefits of tart cherry juice to relieve such pains in the joint. This is because many find the fruit to offer natural healing properties. tart cherry
