SoBe Essentials’ Orange variety tastes very similar to an orange flavored CSD, with two exceptions. First, there’s a much stronger orange flavor, which is from the 30% juice blend used in the product. Second, there is a slight tinge of energy / vitamin flavor to the finish of the product, which is what makes it believable as an energy drink. It’s certainly a drinkable flavor, aside from the aftertaste, but it’s also nothing terribly innovate or original. The white/orange packaging is slightly hard to read, plus the white background made us expect a diet product, which this is certainly not. A decent product, but not exactly a step forward for the category or brand.
