Definitely easy to find at Coop and Migro..... and most places.

It's one of the few things that you can be found easily here.

Re: cranberry juice

Biotta and Ocean spray cranberry juices are available at Coop. Both tasty, although the Biotta brand is more expensive (and not necessarily higher in cranberry content - I'd compare the two if you are using the juice for therapeutic purposes).

Bottoms up!

Re: cranberry juice

the pharmacy can also give supplement for the cranberry that is in tablet form, they say that is much better to solve the uti than the juice, sugar in many brands of the juice can actually make the uti worse

Re: cranberry juice

Yes, if it is for a uti go to the pharmacy. They have the right type without sugar or the granulate that you mix yourself with water.

Or by the fresh ones and make your own - they are in season now.

Everytime I had a urinary-tract infection my grandma always gave me vodka/cranberry juice. In retrospect, I'd go the doctor/pharmacy route to cure my ills....

Re: cranberry juice

They also have it in Landi--I got a pack of 4 ("Farmer" brand) for about 8 Sfrs.

Re: cranberry juice

Resurrecting this thread, as I've recently sampled all the brands from the local stores to find which one I liked best. I have no idea if this will help anyone in the future, but here you go. Some of these are called juice, some nectar, and some cocktail. It's all the same to me In order of preference:

Brand - Store - Approx cost - my thoughts

Farmer - Landi - 1.48 per liter.
Sold as a 4-pack. Nice tart taste, sweet enough without being too sweet, and the best value for taste, imo

Solevita - Lidl - 1.85 per liter.
Similar taste to Farmer, just more expensive (and the store is further from me than Landi)

Ocean Spray - Coop/Migros/Denner - 2.95 per liter.
This is the juice of my childhood and I'm still fond of it, but it's loaded with sugar (thus calories) and costs nearly double that of the Farmer brand. The lower-sugar brand tastes terrible as they use artificial sweetener instead of less regular sugar. Hmm, now I am thinking back to fresh cranberry juice in Wisconsin!

Michel - Coop/Migros - 2.95 per liter.
Nice, tart taste but still a bit much on sugar and hard to justify the price when compared to the first few mentioned

Happy Fruits - Aldi - 1.85 per liter.
Available in low cal or regular, just a difference in sugar amount. I found this one to be too watery.

I've not tried Biotta yet. To be fair, virtually all of these are less than 50% juice so you're mostly getting water and sugar. I like cranberry juice just for the taste even if I'm not fighting a UTI, and so I'll continue getting the Farmer brand.

Re: cranberry juice

Which variation of juice is the best for my Scarlett O'Hara during today's rugby game? Or should I be gone with the wind ...

Re: cranberry juice

I'd go for the Ocean Spray just because it's what I know best with that sort of drink. Isn't that kind of a girly drink (Scarlet O'Hara) for a manly sport??

Psst ... trying to find alternative to SoCo because the latter contains too much sugar and OH doesn't allow spirits

Perfect timing, as I was just about to post a cranberry juice thread.

The local Getrankmarkt no longer stocks the 'old style' Ocean Spray, they have switched to Michel which to me is even sweeter than the OS. So I've been looking for alternatives. (Can't live without my cranberry juice.)

The OS available in Coop is different, I see it is now mixed with carrot juice and even sweeter than the 'old style' juice.

Coop Natura makes a Preiselbeeren Nectar that is quite good, not very sweet - but at a horror price.

I'll give Landi Farmer a try. (I've like most of the Farmer products I've tried.)

Thanks for the tip!
