Pear Apple Cherry
Last Updated: 7/17/2009 10:04 AM
The Pear Apple Cherry flavor of Give Energy Drink has a pretty nice flavor to it, with a big note of pear flavor and more subtle apple and cherry flavors to round things out. It doesn’t taste very sweet or overly carbonated, which is certainly a plus from our point of view as there are plenty of other super sweet energy drinks on the market. Plus, the ingredients are straightforward in comparison to competing products, with an energy blend that consists of natural caffeine, gotu kola, yerba mate, guarnaa, ginkgo biloba, and rhodiola rosea root extract. That goes nicely with the drink’s tagline of “Drink alternatively. Live sustainably.” Also notable is that PurBlu Beverage, the maker of the drink, is donating 10 cents per can sold to various sustainable energy initiatives. On the packaging front, they’ve got a very clean design to the package, with an illustration featuring a wind turbine on the front of the can. However, there’s no mention of the donation on the front, which might lead consumers to believe that “Give Energy” is just a corny play on words. A more prominent callout regarding the donation would certainly alleviate this. Overall, a very well done drink that has enjoyable flavor, a clean look, and the added benefit of supporting a social cause.
