Old Orchard Brands expanded its Cran Naturals line of naturally sweetened juice cocktails with the release of Cranberry Cherry. With 55 calories in each serving, the reduced-calorie juice drink is sweetened with a blend of real sugar and Truvia brand stevia leaf sweetener, resulting in a cranberry juice blend that contains 50 percent less sugar than traditional 100 percent juice offerings, the company says. The juice drink does not contain any high-fructose corn syrup or artificial colors, flavors or preservatives, it says. Cranberry Cherry joins five other varieties — Classic Cranberry, Cranberry Apple, Cranberry Blueberry, Cranberry Grape and Cranberry Raspberry — in the Cran Naturals line and is available in the shelf-stable juice aisle of grocery stores nationwide. The suggested retail price for a 64-ounce bottle, which provides 8 servings, is $2.99.
