Zola Antioxidant Smoothie features a blend of acai berries and banana. However, we found the taste somewhat odd, almost olive-like in nature. With a purple/orange color, it was not what we expected. However, those seeking an antioxidant-specific drink may want to explore this option.
It’s great to see the return of Mountain Dew Game Fuel, now expanded to 2 flavors. Horde Red is a flashback to 2007′s original flavor, which did have a distinct cherry-ish taste, but was also quite syrupy. The real advantage of this drink is the 6.0 mg/oz of caffeine, far greater than you’d find in original Dew. If you want a buzz, this is your beverage!
We really liked Amp Energy with Green Tea. If you are a tea fan, then this is a drink to check out, combining the unique taste elements with the features of an energy drink. The sweetness of the general Amp Energy flavor counteracted the sometimes bitter experience you get from a tea, but the overall flavor profile blended with with a citrus hint. Thumbs up!
Japan is slated for some new, interesting flavors from Coke and Pepsi. Coca-Cola Plus Catechin will have a green tea influence, while Pepsi Shiso sports a basil-inspired taste. These fit in line with other recent oddities from the Land of the Rising Sun, including Pepsi Ice Cucumber, Pepsi Blue Hawaii, and Pepsi White.
Despite the odd green color found in Sunkist Naturals Glorious Greens, I was pleasantly surprised by the taste. With a balance of apple, kiwi, and other smoothie-ish flavors, this drink hit the spot. Hats off to the solid packaging design as well, which drew in a non-smoothie drinker like myself with its nice visuals and familiar brand name.
