Diet Talking Rain is very difficult to drink. While we have no idea what Cactus Pear is supposed to be (or taste like), we can tell you that this beverage tastes like flavored artificial sweetener(that's artificial sweetener). It was nearly impossible to taste anything other than the sweetener. Cactus Pear needs a major overhaul. The taste is unbearable. Why not just eat artificial sweetener packets? It would certainly taste better than this beverage.
