The Pomegranate flavor of Cell-Nique was the first flavor sampled for review. The formulation, which has a massive ingredient list to back the drink's "31 fruits and vegetables," has a very raw feeling to it. There's a vegetable-like aroma to the product, which gives way to raw notes of fruits and vegetables, grain like flavors, and a light level of sweetness. Although it's hard to discern any of the individual flavors from the mix (aside from wheatgrass perhaps), including pomegranate, the drink's advertised flavor, we still found it quite enjoyable to drink. The flavor itself, which tastes like something you'd get at a health food smoothie bar, isn't the type of thing that whets your appetite, but the authentic and wholesome feeling of the drink would keep us coming back for more. It has only 84 calories and 13g of sugar per bottle and, unlike some of the bigger smoothie brands, the drink isn't loaded with filler juice. Packaging and the drink's high price tag are going to be the struggling points. While the name "Cell-nique" is clever, it sounds like something that would better suit a supplement rather than a wholesome product like this one. Otherwise, our only other thought is that USDA Organic certification would likely go a long way with the likely buyer.
