Cranergy for Me?

I saw these at the store and thought it'd be fun to try out. I didnt really read the labels in detail but I knew a few things before I bought these. a) they were energy drinks b) they were cranberry by oceanspray and c) they looked awesome.

I got them home, filled my glass full of ice and poured in this delicious looking drink.

After I took a sip, well it wasn't as great as I'd hoped. It had this weird taste. Slightly like cranberry only something stronger over it. My husband was standing in the kitchen and asked me why I was drinking this. 'Well duh, because it's cranberry!' says I. He said, "No, why are you drinking green tea?" Ohh. I'm normally not a fan of green tea so it didnt even dawn on me to consider it was in this drink. Yes that'd make a lot of sense now with the energy and all.

Well I'm not really a fan of green tea so I really had no desire to finish the drink/bottles. So here's my opinion. If you like green tea and cranberry, you'll probably love this drink. Since I only liked one of those very important variables (since they're both very potent flavors) I really disliked these drinks.

Anyone see this Cranergy? Try them? What'd you think?

*I was not asked to do this review. I was not compensated to try this product. I just thought it'd be fun to try something new and cranberry.

I don't think I've ever had green tea. But that doesn't sounds great. Love cranberries though.

I kind of like green tea, and I kind of like cranberry, I might give it a try!

I'm not a fan of green tea either, so I probably wouldn't like them. They probably have caffeine in them too and caffeine and I don't mix. I need to find a caffeine-free energy drink that tastes great. I wonder if one actually exists.

No not me.., cranberry, a strong bitter flavor, and green tea a strong bitter flavor.. don't think i would even look twice at them in the store..

Jenni Elyse,
there are some good energy drinks sans caffeine in the health food section of my local Frys.

Bell Markets and Cala Foods,
City Market, Dillons, Food 4 Less,Quality Food Centers,
Quik Stop, Ralphs, Kwik Shop,
Loaf 'N Jug, Owen's Market, Gerbes,
Hilander, JayC Food Stores, King Soopers, Pay Less Food Markets

I'll just stick to plain ol' cranberry juice. If it's not broken, don't fix it, right?
Thanks for the review!

Too funny. Reminds me when I ate some chocolates filled with liquor.

I love those! I didn't realize until my fourth bottle that they had Green Tea in them... but I reminisce about the deliciousness. :)
