REVIEW - Zuma Juice

 Packaging - 4 (very good)
Benefits - 5 (excellent)
Look - 1 (bad)
Smell - 1 (bad)
Taste - 2 (not good)
Overall:

I was super excited to try Zuma Juice. I saw their viral video about their product, which I am including below, and I watched it a few times and I showed it to friends and I laughed a ton. I was excited to get my hands on their product.

I gave Zuma Juice a 4 on packaging, mostly because I like that it comes in individual packages that are EASY to open! I hate wrestling with my packets and mix ins and stuff. Otherwise I think the color choices and logo are average, however packaging is more about ease of use to me with supplements and not as much about aesthetics like it is with cosmetics and skin care.

I also gave it a 5 on benefits! I love that this product has NO synthetic vitamins or supplements. It includes 6 organic greens and grasses, 3 organic sprout concentrates, 7 organic vegetables, 13 fruits, superfoods, and herbs. The website says that they grow these things in "exacting conditions and [they] are harvested at their nutritional peak". They do not cook or boil the veggies and instead dehydrate them slowly which allows them to retain nutritional value. 



So here comes me actually using this stuff, and that's where the scores dipped low. I love smoothies in the morning. I usually add a drink supplement of some sort to them, and I like all kinds of combinations. I have over 6 frozen fruits in my freezer at all times with 3 different base drinks (like pomegranate juice). I started out by trying this Zuma Juice exactly as they recommend, in a blender bottle (I got their trial kit which included a small blender bottle) with cold water. I got purified water from the fridge so it was nice and cold. I added the mix and I shook it for a solid minute.

I do not feel the ingredients dissolve at all, so you could taste the texture of the vegetables. It wasn't pleasant to me. I think the texture threw me more than anything else. Also when I looked at it, it looked like green sludge, which was disappointing. It maybe why their blender bottle is not see through at all. The drink settle quickly, so without a blender bottle it is hard to drink it. It smelled awful, I mean it was bad and it was pungent. Also the taste was not good to me. It tasted like toothpaste. Initially I thought it was bearable, but the aftertaste as awful and I couldn't get passed a few sips.

So I thought of a plan b, here I mix it into a smoothie. I went for lemonade as the base, which I don't normally do because lemonade has so much sugar in it. But I thought the vanilla and mint would work well with the lemonade. I also added pineapple and strawberries which have a tropical flavor I thought would compliment each other and the drink. Once again adding the Zuma Juice to the blender and my drink instantly looked like sludge. The smell was worse than the first time. The taste was better though. I was able to drink more than a few sips, but ultimately that toothpaste taste and the texture of the supplement itself was to much and I threw out most of my drink.

I the end I am ditching the remaining packets and am not going to return to this supplement again.
