I have been drinking Odwalla juices everyday for about 2 months now.

They are packed with vitamins...Ive been drinking the Blueberry B Monster and the Antioxidant Shake.
Their carrot juice is sooooo good too(organic or not they are both really good)

I stocked up on them and have included at least 1-2 juices a day in my diet.

Does anyone else drink these?

I love their juices, but they are so expensive. How can you afford it everyday?

Their carrot juice is the most disgusting thing I've ever tasted.

They're decent although FAR overpriced. It's like 2.99 for one of those bottles here.

Anyway, I prefer bolthouse farms juices. They're more nutritious, taste better and are cheaper.

There's their selection of juices. They sell them at my local supermarkets although they don't have the full array of flavors, there are in the refridgerated section. Prices range from 1.59 to 3.99 per bottle(32 oz.). I love their Green Goodness and Berry Boost flavors. Perfectly Protein tastes awesome too but that has Soy if you're avoiding that for some reason. The other flavors are great too but they're more for enjoyment than nutrition. Their Mango Lemonade is awesome and the carrot juice is fantastic. All their juices are dairy and gluten free.

Odwalla is owned by Coca-cola! Buy some other brand if you can, or better yet, go to a juice bar or buy your own juicer.

Does being owned by Coca-cola make it some how inherently bad?

Most companies in the world are like that. The whole point of having a business is to make the largest profit possible so they'll do whatever they can to achieve that. It's not only Coca Cola that does these things but all. They still have to produce a quality product to keep up their sales and not ruin their reputation so Odwalla is just as good as any other competitive juice in the market.

Well Im from CAL the Bay Area...

Odwalla is pretty big out here mainly due to the fact that some guys from Santa Cruz started the Odwalla juices...so I don’t know about that Coca Cola thing but who knows maybe they bought them out?

Anywho...yes they are expensive but I haven’t found any other juices that match the vitamins, nutrition, quality and pureness of Odwalla.
So they tend to worth that extra buck for me.


I have seen improvements in my skin definitely. I can not completely contribute that to Odwalla but adding it to my daily diet has helped a great deal. I receive double of the daily intake of b vitamins when I drink just one B monster Odwalla shake. I get double the intake of vitamin A when I drink the carrot juice. It’s so natural you can taste the berries and carrots. Its great stuff!

I have changed a lot of my eating habits and as of right now my skins never been so clear.

Funk, do you mean the University of California, Berkeley? If so, Go Bears!

Anyway, even being a 'hippie' who resides in the Bay Area, I don't see what the big deal is with Coca-Cola owning Odwalla. They have largely left the management intact and are supposedly not meddling in the production of the juices. What they are offering, however, is a distribution advantage with retailers. Makes perfect business sense.

Corporations are not necessarily evil...

I guess I just prefer not to give my money to a company that does nothing for society except rot teeth, decrease bone density, increase obesity and adult-onset diabetes. If that doesn't phase you, then maybe the fact that union organizers at coke bottling plants in Columbia, South American are being kidnapped, tortured and murdered will.

What you do with your money is your own choice, and I support your right to make that decision. I also choose not to drink soda.

However, Coca-Cola is a *man-made* entity that is responding to consumer demand. People want sugary, sweet drinks (which may happen to cause the things you listed above), so Coca-Cola produces them. No one is forced to consume their beverages.

As for union organizers being threatened in South America, I do not have verifiable information one way or the other. I truly hope what you have suggested above is not happening, as that would be despicable behavior. Along the same vein, I also hope that union members are not using physical violence and coercion to force people to join the union.

I'm not going to get involved in the cola war stuff, but I used to drink Odwalla juice/smoothies every morning on my way to work and while they are good, there was no change in my skin.
