On hot days, I’d sooner reach for a chilled drink than I would a frozen juice pop. It’s just less messy not having to deal with drips. But that’s not to say I don’t enjoy them. This here is Proud & Punch Paging Dr Green Juice Pop. It’s made from 100% Australian Granny Smith Apple juice (65%), Packham Pear juice (32%), spinach puree (1.5%) and dessert lime puree (1%) with no added sugar or artificial colours or flavours.
The juice pop has prominent acidic notes from Granny Smith Apples that are well complemented by the delicate floral sweetness of Packham Pears and a zesty hint of tangy freshness from the dessert lime. Thankfully, the spinach is not noticeably present during each bite with the apple and pear notes overpowering, but it does linger long on the palate as a vegetal aftertaste. Essentially, these juice pops are tastier frozen versions of the healthy green smoothies that I enjoy much less.
