Juisi’s Cucumber Mint is a very pleasant tasting and not-too-sweet blend of cucumber, kale, mint, pineapple and lime. The flavor of the kale is the dominant flavor, but, thanks to the lighter flavor of the other ingredients, it’s not too overpowering. While the name of the drink includes mint, it’s definitely not too minty. Plus, we really like the lime flavor at the finish. As for the pineapple, which is the main source of sweetness, it’s much more of a secondary flavor than it is in some of Juisi's other varieties. This keeps the sugar and calories relatively low, with 20g of sugar and 140 calories per bottle. All in all, we really like this product. From a design perspective, the product is obviously a green juice product that’s cucumber- and mint-flavored. Yet, as we’ve stated before, the Juisi brand doesn’t feel like a strong part of what the product is all about. Instead, we feel as though this is a somewhat commoditized green juice. Making something that’s a bit more visually appealing -- and perhaps placing it where the Vitamin C callout is -- would help make this more engaging. Overall, a very nice tasting product, but the branding needs improvement.
