Product Review: Ocean Spray Sparkling Cranberry


About a week ago, I received a free sample of Ocean Spray’s new Sparking Cranberry drink in the mail.  I signed up for it back in February and actually forgot that I had done so!  I was expecting it to taste a bit like a cranberry soda, but I was pleasantly surprised to find it very refreshing and not tasting like it was loaded with sugar.  It’s also only 90 calories for the entire can 🙂 

We’re currently only purchasing “extra beverages” (anything other than milk or juice) for special occasions, so it’s not likely that this product will end up in my cart anytime soon.  It has definitely given me some ideas for making my own version of a refreshing drink for our Memorial Day BBQ though.  It should be as easy as mixing equal parts of 100% Grape Juice, 100% Cranberry Juice, and topping it all off with some club soda — mix, mix, mix — chill, chill, chill – Enjoy!
