Despite the bright pink color of the liquid, Diabolo’s Blueberry Lemonade actually has a fairly pleasant flavor -- assuming you compare it to other mid calorie CSDs. It utilizes a three-sweetener blend of cane sugar, sucralose, and acesulfame potassium, which gives the product a modest level of sweetness, minimal aftertaste, and only 7g of sugar and 25 calories per 8 oz. serving. However, there’s a bigger issue for this product -- its packaging and positioning. Specifically, the product looks and feels very much like an energy drink. While the word “Lemonade” is on the front panel, it’s not clear that this is a soda (or what it is at all, for that matter), especially with the plethora of lemonade energy drinks that have come to market in recent years. The name, Diabolo, sounds aggressive (think “Diablo”) rather than something that goes with a line of sparkling lemonades. Otherwise, the product has a generic visual feeling to it, relying on what appear to be stock images and a flat pastel blue background. Overall, we think that this product is in dire need of a visual overhaul.
