Nestle Jamba All Natural Energy Drink

2

Jamba Juice! They just introduced All Natural Energy drink to the public couple days ago and it’s distributed by Nestle. So far they have three flavors: Strawberry Banana, Crisp Apple, and Blueberry Pomegranate. Jamba energy drinks are made with real fruit and natural caffeine that helps to support your mental alertness. According to jamba, “there are no artificial colors, artificial flavors, taurine or other ingredients you need a degree in chemistry to understand.” If it’s all natural, then I don’t need to worry about what ever that’s in the drink?

I like the packaging design for this energy drink because not only it can stands out from those popular dark color based energy drinks but also gives you the impression of feeling healthy if you drink it. I know that it’s all part of their marketing tactics to convince you to buy it, but you’ve got to give credit to them that it’s pretty stylish.

Jamba All Natural Energy Drink Strawberry Banana

There’s a mix of strawberry banana aroma coming out from the can when you open it for the first time and you could really recognize both strong fruit scents from the can. The color of this natural energy drink was a bit more close to light orange. The texture wasn’t just pure water. You could tell it’s a bit dense when you pour it out and you could see the fruit juice essence in their as well. Also, there’s a lot of carbonation in the drink. The first sip tasted sour. After couple more sips, you could sense a little bit of banana flavor, but not the strawberry. The sweet and sour tastes were balanced pretty evenly because neither one dominates the other. The fruit juice flavor was also balanced well with the “energy taste.” As you drink more, the caffeine starts to kick in and the taste becomes more delicious. I detect dryness in the mouth for the aftertaste.

Jamba All Natural Energy Drink Crisp Apple

The apple aroma coming out of the can when you open it for the first time was very refreshing and pure. The color of this Crisp Apple was similar to the previous flavor and same for the texture as well. The carbonation in the drink was a lot too. The first sip tasted pure apple flavor and it was close to pure juice taste with exception of subtle “energy taste.” If you keep on sipping it, the flavor some how tasted close to apple juice that you get from your local supermarket. Again, the fruity flavor was very well balanced with the sweet taste. When your mouth processes the sip, you first greeted by the refreshing apple flavor and then ends with the “energy taste” after you swallows it down. The aftertaste was feeling dryness in the mouth.

Jamba All Natural Energy Drink Facts

Personally, it’s too much caffeine for me based on my body.  As for the taste, I like it because it does have the fruity flavors in it and you can actually taste it. If it didn’t say it’s an energy drink on the bottle, I would think this is a juice drink and I would probably drink it couple times a week. If you like energy drink, you should give it a try.

    I was just given a free sample of Jamba Blueberry Pomagranite All-Natural Energy drink. I have to say I was excited to try it – Nestle is a good name, and I love the taste of blueberry and pomagranite.

    I’m sorry to say I was very disappointed in this product. It left a very strong “after taste” in my mouth and even though it said it had natural sweetners, it tasted like artificial sweetners! Yuck.

    I really like the idea of a natural energy drink, but I’ll have to keep looking because this one didn’t taste good.
