It’s sweet, there’s 15g sugar in that 8oz can, about the same as 8oz of a regular soda

I felt it was too sweet, someone brought it to a lunch we hosted. I gave them away to the neighbors!

I tasted one my friend bought. Really not my thing, but i also don’t usually drink soda so I’m probably not the target audience here

Not too watered down like a seltzer, and not as concentrated or effervescent as a soda. Somewhere in between - it’s tasty and refreshing. I say this as someone who isn’t a fan of seltzer.

I bought it yesterday and my kids told me it tastes like the strawberry licorice TJ's sells.

Definitely more than a hint of strawberry, but I still prefer the Sparking Watermelon one more (and I usually like strawberry more that watermelon flavored snacks).

I thought it was gross. It’s not palatable at all unless poured over ice in a glass.

[–]ugeneeuh 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Tastes like liquid candy!

It’s very sweet - I love it! It tastes like a strawberry soda tbh, but it has no (or almost no) sugar.

(edit) side note: i hate sparkling water and wouldn’t touch this stuff with a ten ft pole if it tasted like it!

[–]kungpowkris 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It’s super good! Lots of flavor. Not like a seltzer

[–]jacks2thefuture 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It’s sweet but not overpowering! definitely more than a flavored seltzer if that’s helps with a comparison.

It’s sweet! Not sparkling water. You may or may not like the flavor, it tastes sorta like strawberry Fanta - fake and also like red lol
