The Strawberry Kiwi flavor of Hint Fizz is an unsweetened “soda” that is really more comparable to a flavored sparkling water. There’s no sweetness of any kind, with a modest splash of strawberry kiwi flavoring being the only thing that you taste. It’s very carbonated, which, again, puts it on par with a sparkling water. The high level of carbonation adds some bite to the product, but it also helps cut the bitterness of the fruit flavoring. That said, it’s really a tossup for us as to whether or not they got the flavor and carbonation level right with Strawberry Kiwi. Packaging is where the product veers from the sparkling water category, with a clear long neck 12 oz. soda bottle being used. The clear bottle and minimalist lower label give the product a very healthy and fresh look, but the label on the neck looks like an afterthought and creates visual distraction. Overall, we’re not convinced that this is a soda replacement, but as a sparkling water, it’s definitely an enjoyable choice.
