Cons: bottles have both #7 and #2 plastic symbols

While we have no complaints about the juice Naked Juice sells, we do have complaints about the misrepresentation of the plastic bottle's ability to be recycled.  Plastic resins cannot be mixed if they are to be recycled.  Even a small amount of the wrong kind of plastic can ruin the melt for recycling.  So the Society of Plastic Industry initiated the resin coding system in 1988.  However, Naked Juice made the corporate decision to use two recycling symbols on their bottles, both #2 HDPE and #7 Other.  #7 plastic is non-recyclable in all municipal recycle programs.  I wrote the company on two occasions asking them to come clean on what the bottle was.  Their claim is that most of the bottle is #2 but it does have nylon mixed in the plastic which is #7 other.  They claim that it could be recycled in recycling programs.  We recycle plastic with St. Paul's recycling program and when they were asked about recycling the bottles, they were not interested. Other natural juice companies do not use #7 plastic for bottling.  To mislead the public by using two plastic codes, Pepsi, the only company that we are aware of who does so, is greenwashing.  It may be good for your body, but it's not good for the environment where your body lives.

Pros: Its packed with alots of fruits and veggies and is the most delicious pureed drink I've ever had!

Cons: its really thick so if you just wanted more of a thirst quencher, the super green food one isn't for that. Its also kinda expensive

I actually never gave this product a second glance until one day I was craving juice but was getting sick of the sugary taste and watered down taste of other products that I have tried before. So I got the super green one and it was really thick...(its a good thing I didn't eat prior lol) but some of the other Naked products are more smooth and thin, but the super green is by far my favorite!

Pros: A meal substitute

Cons: Too thick to be refreshing as simply a beverage

This is a good treat and is very nutritious.  It has a great taste!  It is quite a thick drink and I would rather drink water or tea when really thirsty.  It is good for you though and that is worth a lot!

Pros: Substitute for Smoothies, Tasty, All-Natural

Cons: expensive, addictive, always want more

Odwalla bridged the gap for All-Natural, expensive, and tasty fruit beverages. Thanks to them we have expensive fruit beverages like Naked Juice and Bolthouse's All-Natural Juices :)

 

I've never consistently bought Odwalla because its soooo expensive. But, for some reason I always purchase Naked Juice or Bolthouse Farms All-Natural beverages. It could be because of the name and packaging that makes it unable to resist purchasing these juice that always keeps me wanting more.

 

Despite the high price - it's worth putting in my fridge - but barely last 3 days.

Pros: One of the more eco-friendly juice/smoothie companies?

Cons: Not my cup of tea

My gut reaction was "What's so green about Naked juice?"  So I went looking for answers- and pleasantly, according to their website, they are at least taking some steps in the eco-friendly direction.  You can always help them on that mission by buying their larger bottle sizes! :)

 

Personally, I am not a huge Naked fan.  I've tried a few flavors (maybe just never the right one for me?), and while some are okay, others I don't even want to finish.  I prefer the Bolthouse Farms Berry smoothie- but this appears to be the greener company...

Pros: very tasty & the kids like the berry flavor one

Cons: Has to be keept cold not good for taking hiking or if your going to be outdoors

Great if you dont have time to use a juicer or if your on the run

Pros: healthy

For some reason, I pick up a "Naked (either superfood or carrot juice) whenever I feel a little under the weather or after a late night out. I guess the look of the bottle, the text on the label and the actual texture and look of the drink make my mind believe that its superhealthy. And hey, maybe it is! I do feel better after Naked :-)

Pros: Taste, health factor

Cons: Price, a few bad flavors

Okay, I started out with Red Machine and have been in love ever since.  It is a little frustrating that even on sale, these 15 oz smoothies are the same price as an entire gallon of other juices, but I guess you pay more for "no sugar added" and "not from concentrate."  But they are great to fulfill those mid morning cravings and a perfect substitution for desert.  Because of my current addiction to them, I tend to ignore the price.  I definitely recommend that you try these, just be choosy, and don't let one flavor turn you off.

 

The bad news, some flavors just don't taste good.  I tried Blue Machine today because they were out of my usual.  BLEH!  I thought it was terrible, I imagine you would get a similar sensation when drinking Drano!  It literally made my mouth tingle, and not in a good way.  Here's a theory:  Anyone ever do that test in science class during genealogy to see if you were able to taste PTC (Phenylthiocarbamide)?  Well when I did that test, I was a supertaster, which means the stuff made me feel like I was going to be ill!  That's the sensation this reminded me of...so I guess there is a possibility that there is perhaps some broccoli mixed in this one somewhere, because that is the most common occurrence of PTC if I remember correctly...anyways, I just wanted to make that observation in case anyone else had a similar experience.
