tropicana smoothies

is anyone drinking these as part of their pre or post-ride regimen? I was just checking them out at the deli where i get lunch and noticed that one of these drinks packs 63g of carbs (5g in dietary fiber and 46g in sugars).

Does the 46g in sugars mean that the bulk of the carbs are of lower quality than, say, pasta?

Even if drinking them for the carbs isnt worthwhile, are they overall a decent choice for a cyclist for other nutrients?

The link to their nutritional info is here: http://www.tropicanasmoothies.com/Products.asp . Just click on the bottles.

Thanks,
lawrence

I've had them a few times. They contain yogurt and fruit juice, tons of potassium, too. And they taste great.
