New Sparkling Glaceau Fruitwater Zero Calorie Drinks

4

Fruitwater drinks from Coca-Cola! This new line of fruit flavored waters with carbonation is part of Coca-Cola’s Glaceau unit. For those who are not familiar with Glaceau, it’s an unit that makes Vitaminwater and Smartwater.  Now, the sweetener used in this Fruitwater is the artificial sweetener sucralose.  So far I have found three flavors and each one of them contains vitamins B5 and B6, Zinc, Magnesium and Green Tea Extract. By the way, none of them contains juice.

Sparkling Glaceau Fruitwater Orange Mango Zero Calorie

The aroma coming out from this tall skinny bottle didn’t smelled that refreshing after you pop it open for the first time and the orange mango scent wasn’t convincing either. Now, if you pour it into a cup and then smell it, the aroma smelled totally opposite of what you had experienced in the first place. As for the color and the texture, it looked just like a normal orange flavored carbonated drink.  As for the taste, the first sip tasted lightly sweetened with not so convincing orange flavor.  After couple more sips, you could sense the light mango flavor with a subtle tart taste, but the flavor just fades away too fast and the taste wasn’t natural at all. Even though both flavors mixed somewhat equally because you could sense both flavors in one sip but it just wasn’t that natural. For the aftertaste, there’s a light dryness feeling left in your mouth for every sip you had and it tends to add up while you were drinking it.  After chugging down half of the bottle, the taste becomes more like fake fruity flavor with sugar water drink.

Sparkling Glaceau Fruitwater Watermelon Punch Zero Calorie

The aroma for this flavor was all watermelon and it didn’t matter if you sniffed around the bottle opening for couple seconds.  The color for this drink seems to be lighter than other watermelon flavored drinks. As for the taste, the very first sip tasted more like light fruit flavored alcohol drinks and there wasn’t any sign of watermelon in the taste. After couple more sips, somehow the taste reminded me of cucumber flavored soda drink that I had couple months ago and the sweet taste was lighter than the previous Orange Mango flavor. When your mouth processes the sip, you greeted by the tasteless carbonated water first. After you swallow down the sip, you could sense the subtle tart taste with not watermelon punch at all flavor. As the flavor adds up while you were continuously drinking, the fruity flavor tasted towards watermelon side a bit but not convincing. It tasted more like fruity flavored candy. The aftertaste was the same as the previous flavor.

Sparkling Glaceau Fruitwater Strawberry Kiwi Zero Calorie

The aroma for this flavor didn’t smell anywhere close to the flavors stated on the bottle and it’s more close melon scent rather than strawberry kiwi. The color for this flavor was a bit off because logically if you mix red with green you will get some sort of brown color, but instead it’s pink color. As for the taste, first sip tasted lightly sweet with not recognizable fruit flavors.  Also, there’s a subtle tart taste at the end after you swallow down the sip. There’s no strawberry kiwi taste at all after couple sips and even after one small cup, but it kept remind me of some melon taste that I had experienced in the past. There’s sweet taste with tart taste that trying to make you think its strawberry after you had half of the bottle.  The aftertaste was the same as other two previous flavors.

Overall, I would choose the Orange Mango over the other two flavors simply because it just tasted better.  I will stick with Vitaminwater and smart water for now unless they come out a new line of beverage products.

    Why would anyone want to buy this garbage? How can they even call it “fruit water”.. there’s no fruit juice in it, there is nothing good in it at all. Preservatives and artificial colors.. some of which are known carcinogens.. (such as the Potassium Benzoate, if some poor schmoe drinks something with Vitamin C in it and then drinks this stuff, or vice versa, that Potassium Bensoate, that has already broken down in the liquid it’s in, to potassium and Benzoate salt, the benzoate salt if it comes into contact with Vitamin C will be converted to benzene, which is toxic..) fantastic. Most food and drink items that do contain Potassium Benzoate, contain it as a LAST ingredient, not a 6th or even next to last ingredient.

    I’ll make my own by taking sparkling water and just putting fruit in it to infuse with fruit flavor, and actual real vitamin content, without all the artificial rubbish.. I’m sorry the writer of this article had to suffer through tasting these terrible things.. lol.
