Picabi 100% Sparkling Juice Drinks

0

Picabi Sparkling Juice! I received a package of Picabi juice drinks for review couple days ago and I love the design on the bottle because it’s cute and unique in terms of the 3D generated image. According to Picabi, their beverages are made with high quality natural ingredients. Also, they use the whole fruit in the drink including the fruit’s skin and seeds. Each sparkling juice contains excellent source of vitamins, soluble fiber, no sugar, caffeine free, preservative free and gluten free.

Picabi 100% Sparkling Grape Juice

After you open the can, there’s a strong grape aroma coming out from the can and you could tell that it’s a bit lightly sweetened too. The color seems close to real grapes and by that I meant purple grapes. The texture was bit a dense with little carbonation and it looked smooth on the surface as well. As for the taste, the first couple sips tasted sweet and it was hard to sense the grape flavor from the sips. However, it reminded of Hotlips Soda that I did reviews on. As you drink more, it starts to feel like you drinking wines that you bought from vineyard and it’s pretty good. When your mouth processes your sip, you will hit by a thin layer of juice in the drink and then ends with a subtle tart taste after you swallow it down. The sweet taste wasn’t that overly sweetened and it’s a bit sweeter than Hotlips soda. The grape flavor was definitely there and it’s very pleasant to drink.

Picabi Sparkling and Functional Coconut Water

Upon opening the can, there’s a mild coconut aroma coming out from the can and it smelled a bit different than those ZICO, O.N.E, Vita Coco, Blue Monkey, and Nirvana coconut waters scent because this one actually has a subtle vitamin note to it. The color of this coconut water seems close to other branded coconut waters and the texture was also similar with exception of carbonation. The first couple sips tasted totally different than what I had expected based on the previous experiences. I thought it was going to be similar to those popular brand coconut waters, but it turns out to be a quite unique taste. When your mouth processes the sip, you could actually tell the half coconut water and half carbonation in the drink. Also, the coconut water hits your mouth first and then ends with the subtle white grape juice flavor.

Picabi 100% Sparkling Apple Juice

There’s an apple like aroma coming out from the can when you open it for the first time and it’s pretty juicy I would say. The color of this flavor was close to beers that you drink everyday and the texture was about the same as well. The first sip taste wasn’t close to apple flavor at all and it was something else mixed in. When your mouth processes your sip, you first hit by the tart taste and then end with the lightly sweet taste of apple flavor. This flavor wasn’t close to the apple juice that you get from supermarkets.

Overall, all these three flavors tasted good, but I like the most was the Grape juice because it tasted closest to juice flavor than the other two flavors. The coconut water was interesting and personally I prefer without sparkling. For those who like Hotlips soda, then this might be another alternative.  If you like juice drinks, maybe you should try it. Thanks for sending the samples!
