Zola's philosophy is simple: To bring highly nutritious and delicious Brazilian Superfruits to consumers. Zola currently makes 3 juices: Acai with Blueberry, Acai Originial, and Acai with Pineapple. Acai berries are found in the floodplain areas of the Amazon River.
"This powerful berry is a deep purple color, similar shape to a blueberry, with a hard inner seed that occupies 90% of the berry. The taste of Açai has been described as a rich berry flavor with a subtle chocolate aftertaste. Açaí is a staple food for the people of the Amazon and is eaten every day when it is in season. Açaí has recently become very popular blending in drinks or served in bowls in areas such as Rio for it’s health and energy properties. Açai is a key ingredient in all Zola Juices and Zola Superfruit Smoothies.
Research shows Acai to be loaded with antioxidants, 500% more than blueberries, that bind to free radicals and help fight disease and aging."
They also currently make 4 smoothies: Superfood, Antioxidant, Immunity, and Energy.
I got to try the 4 smoothies and 3 juices. They are all very different and unique in flavor... I've never tasted anything like it! My favorite juice was the Acai with Pineapple! I don't usually get into pineapple flavored things, but this was pretty good! My boyfriend liked the Acai with Blueberry!
Out of the 4 smoothies I liked the Antioxidant Berry Blend of Acai Berries & Banana the most. I almost always love strawberry and banana flavored things, so I wasn't too surprised that this one was my favorite!
