Would You Drink This Aloe Juice?

Last week I saw a can of juice I'd never seen before: pomegranate-flavored aloe juice from Korean company J1. The color was a vivid orange-pink, and although it looked like one solid color, there were actually bits of floating chunks in it. The almost-invisible chunks are the aloe, and they have the consistency of somewhat thick Jello. I was surprisingly pleased by this drink, and liked the way it tasted. It was a light pomegranate flavor and was cool and refreshing. The texture was a little odd — it was slimy and thick at the same time — and the whole thing made me think of dessert. I would definitely try it again, and yet I can see how the texture would really bother some people. Are you one of those people, or would you drink this juice?

J1 is a little bit too thick for my taste. I prefer Its The Sun/ El Sol that I get at the 99c only stores! Its much lighter and tastier imo.

I've been drinking Aloe juice with honey for a while now. It took me ages to get used to the unusual texture.

It's also big in the mexican community too. Except the aloe comes in a jar and you add it to other juices. They call it Savila which I think is just spanish for the aloe plant. My MIL says it good for cleansing the system. So yeah a nice way of saying laxative. It's not my cup of tea, but my husband likes it.

The first time I had a drink with aloe bits in it in Singapore I almost gagged...but I guess you get used to them eventually.

Regular aloe juice is really gross. But if it were flavored I might give it another shot.

This sounds like a good way to drink your aloe...I always have a hard time getting myself to drink it even though I know it is good for me. For those of you that don't know, aloe is excellent for your digestive track...

This is a very typical beverage option in Singapore and most drink machines have many aloe-spiked beverages to chose from. It shocked the hell out of me the first time I got one by accident! I'm very much a non-chunky drink girl and to get a mouth full of gummy texture was horrifying! My daughter and husband love it though. I suspect it's too weird to catch on in any big way in the US.

I don't know about this one. I guess if I had a chance to taste test it I would.

I'd add gelatin and make pomegrante-flavored aloe jell-o!
