Lemon-line Splash was our favorite flavor of Solid Health. It drinks very much like the classic lemon lime sports drink, but without the salty note to the finish. The level of sweetness is mild, with only 10g of sugar per 8 oz. serving (approximately two servings per bottle). This makes the product have a balanced mouthfeel while also keeping the calories at about 80 per bottle. But this is a functional product, so flavor is just one component of what this brand has to offer. They’ve added a variety of unique ingredients to their functional cocktail, including pollen extract, vitamins, minerals, and enzymes. While those might be as beneficial to the consumer, the communication of these benefits is a bit hard to sift through. This starts with the “Contains over 180 essential nutrients” call-out on the front, which is not explained in detail anywhere on the label. Instead, they’ve placed a list of about ten different functional benefits of the product. Ultimately, we think there are too many things trying to sell the consumer and not enough to explain what’s inside the drink. Overall, what’s inside the bottle is enjoyable and uses an innovative approach, but the product’s exterior needs some help.
