With a mild, no sugar added flavor and only 30mg of caffeine per can, Solixir's Awaken is a unique spin on an energy drink. First, the flavor. The product's flavor is mainly derived from orange juice, which, along with the added white grape and botanical ingredients, gives the product a sophisticated flavor that should definitely appeal to the adult palate. We appreciate that they've chosen not to add sugar or sweeteners of any kind, thus keeping the flavor of the drink very pure and simple. Functionally, there's only 30mg of caffeine, but that, not the added botanical mix, is what will sell this drink. Dialing up the caffeine a bit more might help this drink sell more (30mg is less than what's contained in even a can of cola). On the design front, we really like the changes they've made, with the bright red can having some nice pop to it. Plus, the new logo and the elimination of the vertical text make it much easier to read. Overall, we like the changes that they've made to this product, but steering it just a little bit closer to the energy drink category seems like it would broaden the reach for this particular flavor.
