Rubicon Juices Review

I have discovered a wonderful, unusual collection of fruit juices, or so I thought until I suggested the product to Ciao. They have known about it since 2002. So I must have just been particularly susceptible to the advertising on these packages or have been walking around with my eyes closed before this. I am going to review the three flavours of juice I have sampled- Pomegranate (this is marked New) Guava and Mango. I think I have also seen Passionfruit and Lychee. I want to try both of these but they have not bee available.

Packaging

This is brightly coloured and has picture of the whole fruit and sliced fruit on the front. This is very helpful to me, as I am unaccustomed to the inside of strange fruits. I see them on the way round Morrisons, but always shy away from them using excuses like “I wouldn’t know when it was ripe!” Ok. I promise you a review of an exotic fruit and the uses I have found for it before the end of the summer.

Pomegranate – Burgundy with the blue and white Rubicon logo.

Mango – Blue with orange mangoes and the blue Rubicon logo.

Guava – Pink with green outer fruit and pink insides and the blue Rubicon logo.

Colour

Guava –washed out, cloudy peach.

Pomegranate – Clear red – looks like cranberry juice.

Mango – natural-looking orange, opaque.

Scent

Guava – Smell is a bit like vegetables, rather than fruit. Not very sweet.

Mango – Smells like peaches to me.

Pomegranate – Quite strong berry smell.

Flavour

Guava – too powdery for me. Tastes like strawberries, peaches and watermelon.

Mango – tastes like a combination of peaches and tangerines.

Pomegranate – tastes like blackcurrant mixed with cranberries. An improvement on either separately.


Cost

At out corner shop – I am sure they are available quite a bit cheaper:

£1.49 for 1 litre cartons
79p for 288ml cartons

BEST USE

Pomegranate – Great for afternoon drink with ice in a sunny garden. Probably a little strong as an early morning drink, but would be Ok as a mixer if you don’t need to taste the other ingredients.

Mango – Breakfast drink all the way. Not as powerful as pomegranate for lazy afternoons, would be Ok as mixer.

Guava – Not impressed by this one – if I had to have it as a mixer I would rink it, but I wouldn’t choose to buy it again.

Other Information

Best Before Dates: Gives about a year.

Package mentions Guarabana is also available – Is this an invented fruit never even heard of it!

Each 288ml contains 140% of recommended daily allowance of Vitamin C.

Apparently they are also available in sparkling versions in cans.

Ingredients:
MANGO: Water, Mango Pulp (23%), Sugar, Citric Acid, Flavourings, Stabilisers (Guar, Xanthan), Vitamin C.
POMEGRANATE: Water, fruit juice from concentrate 40% (Pomegranate 33% Aronia 7%), fruit extract Concentrate, Malic acid, Flavourings, Vitamin C.
GUAVA: Water, Guava Puree (20%), Sugar, malic acid, Stabilisers (Guar, Xanthan), Vitamin C, Colour (Anthocyanin), Flavourings.

My Opinion

Pomegranate is far the best in flavour, colour and scent. I would employ this for all my juice needs and am unlikely to purchase either of the other flavours again, although I would like to give the more elusive flavours a try and will review if I track them down.
