Review: Honest Tea Organic Mango Green Tea


Honest Tea Organic Mango Green Tea

Honest Tea Organic Mango Green Tea comes with quite a “mangoey” taste, even more than I expected. However, it is very tasty and finishes clean for the most part. There is a slightly bitter, tea-flavored aftertaste, but I am sure tea-lovers won’t mind. The first taste really offers a great tea-fruit combo, and this variety seems a bit sweeter than some Honest Teas.

Review: Honest Ade Cranberry Lemonade


Honest Ade Cranberry Lemonade

With the candied taste of liquid Smarties or SweeTarts, Honest Ade Cranberry Lemonade is a light, flavorful drink that surpasses the previously-reviewed Limeade flavor. It finishes clean with a slight hint of sour, making Cranberry Lemonade a good accompaniment to food or as a solid standalone drink.

Review: Sprite Green


Sprite Green

Drinking Sprite Green is like experiencing a gruesome amusement park ride of flavor doom! The aftertaste is the culprit, sneaking up on you with a non-food flavor, almost like you accidentally swallowed hair spray. Given that this drink has a stevia-powered aftertaste, maybe I wasn’t expecting exactly what my mouth was saying… which was pretty much, “what did you just do to me?”

Review: Zevia


Zevia Black Cherry

If you are health conscious and searching for a beverage that gives you the flavor of a carbonated soda without compromising your nutrition, give Zevia a try. There are currently 7 flavors in the product lineup, including Dr. Zevia, Zevia Black Cherry, Zevia Orange, Zevia Cola, Zevia Ginger Root Beer, Zevia Ginger Ale, and Zevia Lemon Lime Twist. We’re big fans of Dr. Zevia!

Review: Pepsi Max Cease Fire with Doritos 1st Degree Burn Blazin’ Jalapeno, Doritos 2nd Degree Burn Fiery Buffalo, and Doritos 3rd Degree Burn Scorchin’ Habanero


Pepsi Max Cease Fire

Pepsi Max Cease Fire had the possibility to expand the Pepsi Max line with a nice lime-inspired flavor. However, the result is underwhelming, with a drink that doesn’t go far enough in creating a difference from the flagship. Additionally, the “companion” chips available in the Doritos Burn lineup offer plenty of heat, but their flames are in no way quenched by the addition of Cease Fire.
