Review: SoBe Lifewater with Coconut Water – Pacific Coconut, Pomegranate Nectarine, & Mango Mandarin

SoBe Lifewater with Coconut Water - Pacific Coconut, Pomegranate Nectarine, & Mango Mandarin

Sweetened with sugar and stevia, these 3 flavors of coconut water prove to be surprisingly tasty, especially the Pomegranate Nectarine installment.

Review: Sobe Elixir Yumberry Pomegranate

Sobe Elixir Yumberry Pomegranate

While discontinued, if you get a chance to come upon a bottle of Sobe Elixir Yumberry Pomegranate, give it a try. Sweet, but not too sweet, this beverage is lightly tangy when it first hits your tongue, followed by a deeper flavor of pomegranate, then a lightweight aftertaste.

Review: No Fear Bloodshot

No Fear Bloodshot

With the use of sugar and real fruit juices — including orange, pear, and grape — No Fear Bloodshot is an incredibly-tasty energy drink targeted for morning consumption. The combination of smooth fruit flavors and bitter bite actually produces a refreshing experience that can start your day with a little extra pep!

Review: No Fear Motherload

No Fear Motherload

No Fear Motherload is a rather tasty, tropical-influenced drink that has a smooth taste that is bookended by a harsh bitterness. For some reason, the smooth/bitter combo works, producing an energy drink that’s bound to keep you bouncing off the walls with its 11.4 mg/oz. of caffeine!

Review: No Fear Sugar Free

No Fear Sugar Free

If you are watching your caloric consumption, No Fear Sugar Free is a strong contender, though it has a bitter aftertaste produced by the artificial sweeteners. Far more syrupy in flavor than No Fear Regular, the sour berry/grape taste tends to be a little different, which is nice. Still, if sugar free isn’t a concern, then go for the Regular version.

Review: No Fear Regular

No Fear Regular

No Fear Regular has a bitter, yet rewarding taste often associated with energy drinks. The berry/grape taste combined with an attractive sour flavor is surprisingly welcome, while the high amounts of supplements quench those desiring an energy soft drink with a little charge.

Super Bowl Commercials & Beverages: 2009

Super Bowl XLIII

Another Super Bowl has come and gone, and with it, a whole new batch of high-profile commercials. Given that we’re a beverage reviewing site, I’d like to take a look at the non-alcoholic drink ads that graced our TVs during the matchup between the Cardinals and Steelers. We’ve done detailed analysis on each of these ads individually, but here’s a quick overview…

Super Bowl Commercial: SoBe – “Lizard Lake” takes a look at the beverage-related Super Bowl commercials. This SoBe spot… yuck! The folks over at Arnell Group should be shot and relieved of their duties regarding the SoBe advertising account, because this 3D commercial done in conjunction with Intel, DreamWorks Animation, and NBC, is not only a bad Super Bowl piece… it’s just bad marketing.
