41. Just Beets With a Splash Of Lemon

I'm just going to ask the obvious question: do you really want to drink pure beets?

40. 100% Pomegranate Juice

Hannah Loewentheil/BuzzFeed

It's hard to get that excited about pomegranate juice.

39. Mango Juice from Carabao Mangoes

Hannah Loewentheil/BuzzFeed

A very small amount of this juice works in margaritas or cocktails, but on its own it's far too sweet.

38. Sparkling Apple Cider

Hannah Loewentheil/BuzzFeed

If you're looking for a sparkling beverage to serve instead of alcohol, Trader Joe's has some far more compelling options.

37. 100% Pineapple Juice

Hannah Loewentheil/BuzzFeed

Like its mango counterpart, this pineapple juice is just too sweet to drink a whole can.

36. Sparkling Yerba Mate Beverage With Hibiscus & Citrus

Hannah Loewentheil/BuzzFeed

Yerba mate is definitely an interesting flavor, but the addition of hibiscus and citrus make this drink a bit too confusing for my taste buds.

35. Watermelon Cucumber Cooler

Hannah Loewentheil/BuzzFeed

This beverage has a lot of potential, but the flavors fall flat (and honestly taste sort of strange).

34. To The Power of Seven Purple Organic Juice Blend

Hannah Loewentheil/BuzzFeed

This juice is a bit too concentrated for me, and I strongly prefer the green version.

33. Organic King Coconut Water

Hannah Loewentheil/BuzzFeed

A very solid coconut water for the price, but then again, Trader Joe's has some way more exciting coconut beverages you're better off with.

32. 100% Grapefruit Juice

Hannah Loewentheil/BuzzFeed

Pucker-y and tangy with just enough sweetness, this is as good as store-bought grapefruit juice gets.

31. Organic Lemonade

Hannah Loewentheil/BuzzFeed

As far as shelf-stable, store bought lemonade goes, Trader Joe's is a safe bet. That being said, you'll find some more exciting options as you browse the aisles of your local T.J's.

30. Jalapeño Limeade

Hannah Loewentheil/BuzzFeed

Reserve this limeade with a kick for cocktails. On its own, the flavor is super pungent and saccharine.

29. Lemon Ginger Echinacea

Hannah Loewentheil/BuzzFeed

This beverage is heavy on the ginger, but if that's the flavor you're after, you'd probably do better with Gingerade kombucha or ginger beer.

28. Sparkling Watermelon Juice

Hannah Loewentheil/BuzzFeed

You'll find the expectation is better than the reality when you pour yourself a glass of this orange-hued watermelon soda.

27. Sparkling Green Tea With Pineapple Juice

Hannah Loewentheil/BuzzFeed

The pineapple flavor is super subtle, but the peach-flavored sparkling tea takes the cake, IMHO.

26. Heart of Darkness Mango Passionfruit Juice

Hannah Loewentheil/BuzzFeed

Did someone say mango passionfruit margaritas?

25. Kettle Brewed Green & White Tea With A Hint Of Mint

Hannah Loewentheil/BuzzFeed

As far as unsweetened ice tea goes, this gallon-sized jug of mint-infused goodness is pretty excellent.

24. Tangerine Juice

Hannah Loewentheil/BuzzFeed

I'm still unclear on the difference between tangerine juice and orange juice, but this is a nice option in the citrus juice genre.

23. Cold Pressed Pineapple Juice

Hannah Loewentheil/BuzzFeed

Call me basic, but there's something about cold pressed pineapple juice that takes it to the next level. A little bit of this stuff goes a long way.

22. Mango Juice Smoothie

Hannah Loewentheil/BuzzFeed

Add this thick and decadent pureed mango blend to your morning smoothies, cocktails, or mocktails. You won't regret it.

21. Organic Carrot Juice

Hannah Loewentheil/BuzzFeed

Trader Joe has discovered the most delicious thing you can do to carrots with this beverage.

20. Sparkling Coconut Water With Yuzu

Hannah Loewentheil/BuzzFeed

A unique take on coconut water, this sparkling beverage is a bit sweeter than what you might be expecting. The addition of yuzu (a Japanese citrus) helps balance it all out.

19. Strawberry Lemonade

Hannah Loewentheil/BuzzFeed

If you're using it for cocktails, this drink is a great choice. If you're enjoying it on its own, hold out for the fresh squeezed lemonade in the refrigerated aisle.

18. Cold Pressed Red Juice

Hannah Loewentheil/BuzzFeed

If you're trying to drink more veggies, it's hard to beat this fruity blend of apple, carrots, spinach, celery, beets, cucumber, lemon, and ginger.

17. Lemon Elderflower Soda

Hannah Loewentheil/BuzzFeed

While it's refreshing and delicious on it's own, I love pairing this citrusy and floral soda with gin and sake.

16. Low Calorie Pink Lemonade

Hannah Loewentheil/BuzzFeed

Refreshing with just the right level of tartness, this low-calorie drink still tastes like you're indulging.

15. French Market Sparkling Berry Lemonade

Hannah Loewentheil/BuzzFeed

Lemonade lovers rejoice, this sparkling strawberry variety is mellow and balanced: not-too-sweet, not-too-sour, and just right.

14. Organic Carrot Turmeric Juice Blend

Hannah Loewentheil/BuzzFeed

If you prefer savory to sweet, this spiced carrot beverage will be right up your alley. Pro tip: try it in your next mimosa.

13. Sparkling Strawberry Juice

Hannah Loewentheil/BuzzFeed

Add your favorite booze for a delicious summer spritz, or turn it into a mocktail garnished with fresh strawberries and basil.

12. Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice

Hannah Loewentheil/BuzzFeed

A real bargain play, this fresh orange juice is a fraction of what it costs elsewhere.

11. Cold Pressed Green Juice

Hannah Loewentheil/BuzzFeed

Green juice can be seriously pricey, but this one's a great bang for your buck. It also happens to be incredibly restorative and thirst-quenching.

10. Fresh Squeezed Lemonade

Hannah Loewentheil/BuzzFeed

An ideal balance of zesty and sugary, this fresh squeezed summertime sip is a must-have in your fridge.

My fridge will be stocked with this super delicious coconut water all summer long. It's super hydrating but has just the right amount of sweetness, which makes it taste like a treat.

7. Italian Blood Orange Soda

Hannah Loewentheil/BuzzFeed

Like its grapefruit counterpart, this ever-so-bitter, citrus-packed soda is a real treat.

6. Sparkling Apple Cider Beverage

Hannah Loewentheil/BuzzFeed

Both the lemon ginger version and the strawberry lemon are a delightful combination of tangy and sweet. I like adding it to my sparkling water for a flavor boost.

5. To The Power of Seven Green Organic Juice Beverage

Hannah Loewentheil/BuzzFeed

This combination of sweet and savory greens (kale, spinach, apple, cucumber, lemon, celery, and ginger) hits all the right notes.

4. Rhubarb & Strawberry Soda

Hannah Loewentheil/BuzzFeed

At just 60 calories per can, it's a better-for-you alternative to soda that's super tasty and fresh.

3. Sparkling Black Tea With Peach Juice

@traderjoeslist / Via Instagram: @traderjoeslist

Peach juice gives the sparkling tea just the right amount of sweetness and flavor. I have a hard time entering Trader Joe's without picking up a box of these babies.

2. Organic Coconut Smoothie

Hannah Loewentheil/BuzzFeed

I've searched the world, and similar coconut smoothies cost five times as much. This Trader Joe's version is creamy, refreshing, and a complete freaking bargain.

1. Cold Pressed Watermelon Juice

Hannah Loewentheil/BuzzFeed

This drink is quite literally summer in a bottle. Add it to mojitos, margaritas, or drink it straight.
