Sol Mate' Lemon Lime Energy Drink
Sol Mate' Lemon Lime Energy Drink - Just Energy, No Jitters
Cost: $2.00 for 10 oz
Active ingredients: Mate' extract, caffeine
Rating: 8 out of 10
Sol Mate's other energy drink takes their original flavor (see our recent review) and adds lemon lime. The good news is that Sol Mate' stays true to form with their great clear glass bottle, simple graphics and organic ingredients (mate' extract, cane sugar, lime juice, caramel color, and lemon oil). We especially like the fact that Sol Mate' is sweetened with organic cane sugar since it provides a pleasant sweetness with no aftertaste. The lemon lime beverage does not stray too far from the original product, which we saw as the downside. Sol Mate' has a solid opportunity to create a divide between the two products by amping up the lemon lime flavor. We tasted very little, if any, lemon lime flavoring in this drink. Perhaps we were expecting too much, but when a label clearly states "lemon lime", thats what we want. The overall flavor presentation is clean, crisp and refreshing.
The energy kick is slight to moderate with no crash afterward.
