If I’m not drinking a cup of tea (which will be very rare because we all know I am a tea queen), I’m either drinking water or orange juice. I haven’t touched fizzy drinks in eight years so pure fruit juices are my next love so when Pago Premium Fruit Juices got in contact, I knew this was right up my street and that’s what today’s post is all about.
As a disclaimer, I was kindly gifted a case of orange fruit juice from the company but as always, my opinions are simply my honest opinion of the product. None of the links used in today’s post are affiliate links.
I had never heard of Pago Premium Fruit Juice before so before I accepted the gift, I wanted to make sure I done my research to see what the company was all about and if they were accessible in my area. I didn’t see the point of trying something out then not being able to get it afterwards. I haven’t been able to find any stockists in Northern Ireland as of yet but you can buy them online.
I was offered a range of flavours but looking through the website, I knew that I was going to go with orange; simply because I love orange juice and I don’t tend to drink many other fruit drinks. When they arrived, I was pleasantly surprised that they came in glass bottles so they are one hundred percent recyclable so knowing I was helping the environment a little more, was even better.
It’s described as orange juice from concentrate with pulp, I don’t mind pulp but I try and get smooth whenever I can. Giving the bottle a shake, I had a first sip and I definitely tasted pulp in it, but it seems to be orange that is slightly thicker than most drinks so it had that feeling at first and often does with each sip from the new glass. However, there’s not as much pulp as you would get with other supermarket brands. It could have been the batch that I got, but it was pretty smooth apart from the beginning.
It’s a nicely sized bottle at 200ml and it’s been really easy for me to throw in my backpack when I have went out for a ride on the bike or a walk into town. They seem to be leak proof too, I thankfully haven’t had any accidents with the bottles and considering I carry my trusty Filofax with me everywhere; if it got wet, I would be devastated.
I haven’t finished all my bottles yet, but once I do, I’m going to order more online because as easy as it is to pop to the shop and pick up a cardboard carton, I prefer being able to pop a juice in my bag for those moments where I’m not near a shop. Also, coming back to the recycling element, I much prefer the glass route when I can.
My one complaint and this isn’t even against Pago themselves, it’s about online delivery. If you’re like me and can’t seem to find them in the shops, I would recommend using The Drinks Shop rather than Drinks Supermarket because the delivery for Drinks Supermarket was almost £15. I understand that it’s a heavy delivery but I simply can’t justify £15 whereas the Drinks Supermarket is under £5.
Thank you so much for reading today’s post; I love getting opportunities like this and thank you again to Pago for the gift, I really am loving the juice. If you fancy giving Pago a follow on their social media, they are over on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
