I review this adorably-sized little soda, clearly aimed at small children. My adult palate finds it somewhat lacking, but kids might like it if they don’t mind the taste of artificial sweeteners. At 60 calories per 5.75 oz., it works out to roughly 84 calories in an 8-ounce serving. That’s a very small calorie savings over a Coke or a Pepsi, which clock in at 90-95 calories in eight ounces. Hardly worth the nasty aftertaste, if you ask me.
Country of origin: Mexico
Sweetener(s) used: Sugar, HFCS, Neotame
Where to purchase: This is where I bought it. (NOT an affiliate link)
Factor 1, Packaging:
Since their whole schtick seems to be that they are mini sodas, they are only available in 5.75 ounce plastic bottles.
Factor 2, Scent:
The blueberry scent is surprisingly accurate, but there is some other chemical smell present as well.
Factor 3, Appearance:
A cloudy electric blue color, with no head or sediment.
Factor 4, Bubble:
Fairly fine bubble and medium-high level of carbonation.
Factor 5, Mouthfeel:
Slightly thicker than water, coats the palate.
Factor 6, Sweetness:
Artificial; the Neotame overpowers the natural sweeteners.
Factor 7, Flavor:
Quite artificial, and more of a generic berry or mixed berry flavor. Little to no blueberry flavor.
