Code Blue Peach Mandarin
A Cross-Functional Super Drink! Revive! Restore! Recovery! I picked up a Code Blue Peach Mandarin beverage from a local 7-Eleven store the other day. I was attracted by the overall design on the PET bottle and the fruit flavors that it comes with. On the bottle it says, “Code Blue goes beyond hydration by replacing vital nutrients and fluids your body loses every day to help you feel revived. Code Blue can be enjoyed anytime to help speed the recovery process and restore your body back into balance.” The proprietary blend used in this drink was similar to all other functional drinks.
Upon busting the cap, there’s a strong refreshing fruity aroma coming out from the PET bottle and if you sniff it long enough, you will notice that it’s kind of similar to Vitamin water beverages. The color of this cold blue flavor drink was close to yellow, but the interesting thing about this color was that both peach and mandarin flavors were orange color. The texture was close to Vitamin water drinks as well. As for the taste, the first sip tasted fruity with subtle tart taste after you swallow down the sip. After couple sips, you could sense the light peach flavor, but not so much of mandarin flavor. Also, the dryness feeling on your tongue started to show up for aftertaste. The drink itself was smooth, clean and easy to drink. The sweet taste wasn’t the best but it was good enough to consider sweet. After chugging down half of the drink, the fruity taste was enjoyable and it was slightly tasted like a sports drink.
