Sneaky Pete’s Review
I don’t really drink packaged beverages all that much anymore. I cut out soda well over a decade ago and started cutting out other sweet beverages a little over 5 years ago. I find that most packaged juice are mostly sugar (empty calories, and usually a lot of them) with no added benefit. Since I sit in an office all day that really matters. I try to limit my calories to delicious foods I need for sustenance—chocolate included, of course. But we haven’t given up all hope on juice.
When I heard about Sneaky Pete’s oat-based beverage and that it was only 40 calories I was skeptical and curious at the same time. I looked at the ingredients list and decided it was worth trying. Sweetened with stevia, no artificial colors or funky ingredients, certified vegan (a huge plus in my book), 3 grams of fiber per serving (1 bottle is 1 serving—my biggest peeve: when you buy a seemingly single serving food item only to find it listed as multiple servings on the nutrition facts—) and only 40 calories for the whole bottle. I thought that was fantastic.
I was pleasantly surprised with the flavors as well. The first one I tried seemed too sweet, but I feel that way about most juices anyway, plus it’s just stevia so I wasn’t concerned. All of the fruit flavors were yummy, although I liked the peach and mango the best (I just love those fruits). Note that they have that typical stevia taste (subtle), but by the time I got to the third flavor (days later) I didn’t even notice it anymore. Mauro liked all of the flavors, too, and didn’t have any cons. We’d both drink any of the flavors again.
