“ Manufacturer: Sainsbury's / Type: Fruit juice „
I love mango juice and do have a juicing machine but hate mess and juicing mangos can be seriously messy. I also don't always have a lot of time and do need to look for value for money and as individual mangos are so expensive I keep them for occasional desserts and get my mango juice fix from these cartons.
At one pound for a a carton from Sainsbury it is great value for money.
The juice drink is sufficiently thick that I do tend to add chilled water, which adds to the refreshing qualities of the juice, cuts the calories and makes it go further. I also tend to mix it with Sainsbury's Passion Fruit juice drink, which can usually be found close by and a little chilled water to make my own smoothies. These are as just tasty as ready mixed ones, are not bulked out with apple or strong tasting banana and are also a lot cheaper.
The juice drink also mixes well with orange juice from concentrate as well as being deliciously sweet on its own.
The juice comes in a metalised carton so you won't need to refridgerate it until it - and any passion fruit cartons for mixing with it - are opened. This is really helpful if you have a small fridge and have stocked up in the big shop of the month to take advantage of the three for £2.50 deal.
As this is a juice drink, it does already contain water but the 40% mango puree makes for a well textured juice which never feels thinned out. It does have sugar added to the mix which does add to the calorie content and which diabetics should be aware of. Atkins fans will have to avoid this product.
A 200ml serving will cost 121 calories and a significant 27.8g of sugar, though the fat content is negligible.
And it tastes gorgeous and fits into the five a day target so will fit into a diet with care.
I had never had just Mango Juice before trying this. I had drank plenty of Juices which had a mix of different fruits through it and know that I like the taste of Mango but it was only after I bought this that I thought it may bee too much Mango and perhaps a strong taste. It was fine though and I have since bought this on more than 1 occassion.
This comes in a 1 litre carton and isn't chilled so you just find this where all the other cardboard cartons of Fruit Juice is. This was 99p when I bought it so a bit more than Sainsbury's brand named version of the more common Orange and Apple Juice.
The taste of this is nice. Since the other way I have had a Mango drink has been in a smoothie then I am used to the drink being more Pulp-y, so that was just a normal consistency and lovely to drink when it nice and cold. I don't think this would taste quite as refreshing if it was drank from the cupboard and at room temperature. After reading the side of the carton this has Mango Juice and Puree in it but as I said it isn't thick anyway. The taste of this is just lovely and fresh and there seems to be a slight tang to this.
Calorie wise this isn't great and has 121 calories per 200ml glass. I could probably easily do in the whole carton in a day so not great for me trying to watch my calories.
A nice refreshing Fruit Juice which makes a difference to the usual Fruit Juices out there. Recommended by myself.
Mango is one of my favourite fruits, so when I saw that Sainsbury's had their own brand of mango juice I decided to buy a couple of cartons to try. I usually use fresh mangos to juice or add into smoothies and figured that this would be a more practical way to give my smoothies the taste of mangos without buying so many mangos, lol - I usually buy 8 a week on average because I get through them so fast! Plus, with this ready-made mango juice there's no peeling or preperation and I can just pour it into my glass or add it into my smoothie and enjoy.
This mango juice is really reasonably priced in my opinion. It's £1 per litre although there is a long-term offer on which is buy any 3 for £1.50, so this is a very affordable drink and it is a much cheaper way of drinking mango juice as a whole mango is usually around the £1.50 mark and I've found that I can only get around 250ml of juice out of a fresh mango so all in all this is really good value. The juice is made from 40% concentrated mango juice and mango puree. The ingredients aren't great to be honest due to the added sugar and stabilisers, although this is not a huge disadvantage as for the price I paid I wasn't expecting pure, fresh mango juice.
The juice comes in a one litre carton which is a rectangular shape and made of cardboard. The carton has an orange colourscheme with white writing stating the brand and product name. It is clear what the carton contains and there's a clear picture of three mangos, with one of them sliced open revealing the tasty looking yellow flesh. The carton has the ingredients and nutritional information on the back of it along with Sainsbury's contact details. It states on the back that the drink is suitable for Vegeterians. The carton can be stored in a cool dry place until opened and once opened it should be kept in the fridge and consumed within four days.
The carton has a white plastic flip so it's easy to open and obviously re-sealable. The juice itself is similar in appearence to orange juice - it's a bright orangey yellow colour. It has quite a thin, almost water like consistency and the texture is smooth. The juice smells noticeably sweet and it tastes amazing. This is a very sweet drink, but it's not overlly sweet. I can definitely taste the difference between this and fresh mango juice as this tastes a little waterred down and it is much sweeter - almost artificially sweet, although it still tastes very pleasant and refreshing. There are no nasty undertones to this and the taste considering that it's from concentrate and has added sugar etc is suprisingly nice and it's not at all strange or unpleasant.
This is pretty high in calories at 121 calories per small 200ml glass, but moderation is key and it's common sense not to drink the whole carton in one go, lol. It's also pretty high in sugar at 27.8 grams per 200ml which is worth noting as that is a substantial amount of sugar! Overall, I give this drink 4/5 stars. It's cheap, tasty and good quality but the added sugar lets it down. I do reccomend this though and will be re-purchasing a few cartons next time I am in Sainsbury's.
I love mango juice, I hadn't really drunk much of it before a few months ago but I am now hooked on the stuff! I am also a lover of bargains and reasonably priced goods so tend to buy a fair amount of own brand products for better value and this apply's to my choice in mango juice, Sainsburys Mango Juice.
The packaging for this product has changed slightly since this picture was taken, Sainsburys Mango Juice comes in a 1 litre sized rectangular cardboard carton. It looks a bit more basic, with a white background and some chopped mango's layed out. The Sainsburys branding is in the renowned orange colour and 'Mango Juice Drink'. On the back are the ingredients and serving suggestions.
Mango's originate from the Indian subcontinent, it is a stone fruit with a fleshy skin that can be eaten fresh, added to food and drinks. It has become much more popular in drinks recently being used in smoothies and yoghurt based drinks. Personally I love it on its own. As with most fruits it is obviously good for you in many ways, mango's contain Vitamins A, B and C as well as nutrients potassium, copper and amino acids.
100ml glass = 56 calories, 13.5g sugar, fat - trace, sat fat - trace, salt - trace.
The Sainburys Mango Juice is made from 40% mango juice and mango puree, which is quite a good, high consistency and you can really taste this in the juice. The juice colour is a lovely, medium almost burnt orange colour, with small bits of pulp throughout. The smell of the juice is really fresh and rich and sweet. This fruit juice has to be served cold in my opinion and preferably over ice for the optimum flavour. The juice is quite thick and filling in a way, very sweet to taste and extremely refreshing. I have often have a glass of this after work and just feel rejuvenated and a great, fast energy boost. I love the sweet taste of the mango's but too much can be quite sickly.
Water, Mango Juice From Concentrate (25%), Mango Purée (15%), Sugar, Stabiliser: Pectin; Citric Acid, Natural Flavourings.
Sainsburys Mango juice comes in 1 Litre cartons, they are constantly on offer at 3 for £2.50 which I think is a really good price for a lovely, healthy drink. You can also mix and match with other Sainsburys fruit juices, but I'm with team mango!
I bought this 1 litre pack of Mango Juice as part of a 3 for £2.30 deal last week to have some juices available for visitors arriving on Saturday. The price for a single pack is 87p and of course it is only available in Sainsbury's.
We both love Mango Juice and have previously bought the Rubicon brand which is a bit more expensive at our local Lidl store. However, we do keep an eye out for offers at the various supermarkets so thought this would be worth trying.
So...price wise, it's OK - what about the taste? Well, mango juice is in any event quite sweet and for that reason we serve it in smaller wine glasses as too much can be a bit sickly. This one was indeed sweet but no sweeter then the Rubicon brand. You can get 8 x 125ml servings out of this pack so that works our really quite cheaply at about 11p per glass. It's around 70 calories per 125ml serving and each 125ml serving contains approx 17g of sugar - which takes it into the Red Traffic Light area!
Mango has a lovely sweet smell to it and to me it is hardly surprising that it is used a lot in fragrance and those stupid candle things. Of course, at this price, what you get is juice made from concentrate (25%) but that in itself is a fairly high proportion of mango within the drink.
It has a thicker consistency than say orange juice as you get a consistency that is more like a thin puree or sauce than a juice - that's another reason why it isn't appropriate to neck it in large gollops. Sipped and drunk chilled from the fridge, it's a nice way to cleanse and refresh your mouth over a leisurely weekend breakfast. We all liked it and the whole carton went in two consecutive breakfasts!
The offer is still on - in fact until next year, so we'll be picking up some more this weekend and this time all 3 packs will be Mango. Highly recommended.
Sainsburys Mango Juice drink.
I recently purchased this carton of juice from my local Sainsbury's Supermarket. It can as part of a deal buy three cartons of juice for £2.30p you can also mix the juices up so that you have a different variety.
Ilove juice especially with my breakfast, but also like to keep in a stock of juices for the hot summer days, they are great poured into a nice glass jug, and if you add some ice cubes into this andarrange a few slices of fruit across the top of th jug, this looks really great when you are entertaining your friends.
Sainsbury's Juice this one is Mango come in a thick carboard container, you simply snip the top open at the side and pour, oralternatively you can use their pourer which is made of white hard plastic, although i do find that pouring out of this mean you will get a bit of waste and spilliage.
The taste is really great if you like Mangos then you will really enjoy the sweet taste that this juice provides, refreshing and thick and well I absolutely love it.
It is made from forty per cent mango concentrated juices and also from mango puree.
On the side of the carton is the Try Me symbol this is saying that you can try te juice if you dontlike it you can simply return it for a full refund. No chance of that happening to me as I really enjoy Sainsbury's Juices as they are not watered down, are always crammed full of fruit taste and always leave you wanting another glass as they are just so refreshing a drink to try.
Concentrated Fruit Juices are made from a refreshing blend of ingredients, including fruit juices, sugar and water.
Sainsburys tell us on the side ofthe packet that their concentrated juices come from carefully selected fruits that are picked at the peak of ripeness. Then they are squezed and pressed in the country where it was grown.
This comes in an orange coloured box with pictures of mangos and mango slices shown on the front ofthe carton.
Suitable for Vegetarians and also Vegans alike.
Per 100 ml glass full this juice contains 56 kcals.
Shake carton wel before serving or if you are tipping into a large glass jug, stir well. Served chilled you will get approximately five servings per carton, so that will do a few people.
Ingredients are :
Water, Mango Juice from concentrated twenty five percent, puree fifteen percent, sugar, stabiliser, pectin, Citric Acid, and Natural Flavourings.
I really enjoy this I love thetaste of Mangos and I findthat Sainsbury's fruit juicesare very well priced, and tis does not deflect from the great taste that you will enjoy when you drink these juices.
I highly recommend them.
Thanks for reading and rating my reviews.
On a recent visit to Sainsbury's which has opened fairly near us, I bought a carton of Mango juice drink. It wasn't a very inspiring carton, quite basic in fact - white with a picture of a couple of mangoes and a glass with some juice in it. But it was adequate, although since opening I find the hard plastic pourer does seem to leak a little. On the top is the best before date which is June 2011, so a shelf life of just over 4 months. On the front a small circle depicting what a 200mls glass provides, which I will write about later.
On the one side there is information about "What is a made from concentrated juice drink?" It states that "from concentrated" juice comes from carefully selected fruit that is picked at the peak of ripeness, then squeezed and pressed in the country where it is grown. The juice is concentrated by removing the water, which reduces the number of trucks and ships needed for transport, so helping the environment. It is then frozen or pasteurised before its journey to the UK. Once in the UK it is returned to its natural strength by replacing the same amount of water that was removed, then blended to their recipe and pasteurised for longer lasting freshness. It can be kept at room temperature until opened when it should be stored in a fridge and consumed within 3 days.
On the other side is a fuller chart with nutritional information, a 200 mls glass contains 112cals, 26.9grams of sugar, a trace of fat and salt. The Multiple Traffic Light guideline is used so there is a warning about the fairly hefty sugar content in the red area, but the salt and fat are in the green area. I used to glance at food labels but find this method really easy to see what is good and what is bad. In case you aren't aware of this time of labelling this is how to use it.
Red light = the food is high in this nutrient and whilst it's fine to have the food occasionally, or as a treat, try to keep an eye on how often these foods are chosen, or try eat them in smaller amounts.
Amber light = this is an OK choice most of the time, but choosing green for that nutrient would be a better choice.
Green light = the food is low in that nutrient. The more green lights, the healthier the choice.
The main ingredient is water! Then 25% Concentrated mango juice, 15% Mango puree, sugar, stabiliser, citric acid and natural flavouring.
Currently on sale in Sainsbury for £1, it actually has more Mango in it than the Rubicon Mango which I often drink which actually costs half as much again! Costing 20p a glass this is a reasonable product. So a bargain price wise, but you will be wondering what it tastes like. I have left the best to last! Immediately that I poured the juice into a glass the earthy smell of Mangoes tantalised my nose. It is a deep, dark orange colour, thicker than orange juice because of the puree content, but not as thick as a smoothie. It tastes of Mangoes, but there is a sweetness to it too, I could happily lose some of the sugar and make it more healthy!
I don't drink a 200ml glass everyday as I find it quite sweet, but do like to start my morning with something fruity and this fits the bill quite well. The tetra pack is recyclable too, so Sainsbury's are doing quite a bit for the environment.
I'm sure I'll be back at Sainsbury's and buy some more of this.
I brought a carton of this juice in Sainsburys yesterday, I think it's new because I have never seen it on the shelf before and I would deffo have noticed because I LOVE the taste of mango. I have drunk the whole carton now, it didn't take me long because this juice is sooooooo yummy and I have just had the last glass out of it with some ice cubes because it's mega hot again in Birmingham and I wanted a drink that would cool me down.
The juice is quite thick, you can hear it glugging as you pour it into your glass out of the carton. It's got a bit of a smoothie texture actually instead of juice and I was a bit worried that it wouldn't be very refreshing when I first opened the carton because I always think mega thick juices are not refreshing just very tasty.
The mango flavour in this juice is gorgeous, it's made with mango puree and the taste is lovely. It tastes like fresh mangoes only sweeter and even though the flavour of the juice isn't actually sugary it has got a very natural sweet flavour that is more refreshing than I thought it would be and also a proper treat to drink compared to boring juices like orange or apple. There's not much else I can say about the taste of this juice because it just tastes of mango and nothing else! lol
I do think it's majorly refreshing, I've been drinking it in the garden and even though it's so thick and sweet you definately know you've had a nice fresh feeling drink after. It's best with ice cubes because it's quite a plain textured drink and they give it a bit of a different consistency, another good way to drink it is mixed with apple juice because that thins the juice down and apple and mango flavours go wicked together.
The carton I brought was about 80p but Sainsburys have a lot of their juices on special offer where you can buy 3 cartons for £2.00 so it's worth doing it like that, especially now summer is finally here and we're all drinking more.
Recommended..... delish and smooth with a yummy mango flavour.
