Have you ever tried Bossa Nova Açai Juice ($3). In case you've never heard of açai (pronounced ah-sci-ee), they are small, dark purple berries that grow on palm trees found in the Brazilian rainforest. Recently, they have been called the "world's healthiest fruit," because they're so high in antioxidants and naturally low in sugar. Açai actually have 60 percent more antioxidants than pomegranate juice.
So how does this juice taste and compare nutritionally to other juices? To find out
I tried the raspberry and mango flavors and loved them. Both flavors were light, refreshing, smooth, and delicious. They tasted sweet, but not obnoxiously sweet like some juices can be. They are very berry-like and are similar to cherry or a really mild cranberry juice.

Wow. That's a huge difference in calories and sugar, isn't it? Those other juices definitely are tasty, but Bossa Nova açai juice is so much lower in calories, sugars, sodium, and carbs that the healthier option is obvious. Have you tried it yet?
