I invited my brother and SIL along for company and to gather extra feedback. Although we all enjoy eating fruits and vegetables, none of us specifically seek to "eat healthy" or "clean", so I knew this would be an interesting experience.
|The fridge was full of fresh lemons and limes, which I may or may not have co-opted to stage this photo :P|
01 Sweet Greens is made from pineapple, kale, romaine, cilantro, green apple, and lime. The juices all have a sweetness rating out of 5 (I've noticed the rating system on the website is different from the menu board in-store though), and Sweet Greens is the sweetest (5.0). This is a great pick if you are new to juices or don't like the taste of veggies, since you mostly just taste the pineapple.
02 All Greens is made from kale, romaine, ginger, cucumber, celery, and other vegetables, but no fruits at all. Understandably, it is the least sweet at a 2.0. This is the most "healthy-tasting" of the ones we tried; it definitely tastes like you are drinking this for health purposes only LOL. It tastes mainly of cucumber and celery.
04 Bright Greens is made from romaine, cucumber, parsley, kale, green apple, celery, and lemon. This one was okay too, and in between Sweet Greens and All Greens in terms of sweetness.
08 Orange Roots is made from carrot, turmeric, apple, and lemon. It's a 3.0 in sweetness and has a very slight bitter note from the turmeric. This was one of my favourite juices.
10 Sunrise is made from grapefruit, apple, lime, and mint. It has such a pretty pink-red colour, which I'm told is achieved by adding a little beet juice. You'd think this would be one of the tastier ones because it's fruits and mint, but it wasn't one of my favourites. I liked the tartness, but there's also a strong bitterness from the grapefruit that I didn't like.
|Cheeky Monkey smoothie|
Cheeky Monkey smoothie is apparently popular with kids, with kid-friendly ingredients like peanut butter and banana in an almond mylk base. The strongest taste is the banana; cocoa nibs give a hint of chocolate, and the dates add a slight sweetness, but overall it's surprisingly not as sweet as I expected. The three of us agreed that we all preferred the Healthy G, actually.

I'd also come back to try the Matcha Mylk (cashews, almonds, matcha, maple syrup, vanilla) or Coffee Mylk (almonds, dates, coffee, vanilla, cinnamon, Himalayan salt). These were out of stock during my visit, due to a surprise big order that day.
Commodity also offers cleanse programs, some of which include smoothies and meals, not just juices. I can't see myself taking on a cleanse any time soon, but if I did, I would definitely want some kind of food and dietary fibre going into my body to feel satiated.
