Lovely Luvli. I tried a surprisingly tasty tomato juice at the Fancy Food Show called "Smashing Tomato". Since it comes out of a jar, my expectations weren't high, but it was quite fresh and vital tasting. Enough for me to try sometime when it's offered at retail on the West Coast. Luvli hails from Boston and is making its way west. Wish I had some right now, sounds like a healthy thing for a cold.

Hey Anna, have written up the meme!

How cute. Do you have a juicer? Would your bean machine work as a juicer? You could re-create some of those flavors... Oops, no tomatoes in season.
Get well.

Sra: I'm just getting a blank page when I go to your blog, but I'll keep trying!

Cookiecrumb: Thanks, I feel better today, enough to go out for some fish. I don't think the bean machine would work as a juicer, but my Vitamix would sure do something probably even better -- when tomatoes are in season. But no kidding I was surprised at how fresh this canned one tasted. I know these products of late aren't exactly local to me, but they are local to someone :-)

Dear Anna,

Thank you so much for your nice feedback on the juices. Yes, we were at the Fancy Food Show and we had a great time talking to hundreds of people. As you said, it does have a fresh taste even thought its from a 'can' or bottle. We use really high quality ingredients and fresh cucumber juice. Makes all the difference. We hope to be on the West Coast in the coming months. In the meantime, you can see and read about us at Thanks again! - Karsten (founder)
