The Tastiest Buzz
The Tastiest Buzz is certainly tasty, although we're not sure that it warrants a superlative. The cranberry citrus flavor is sweet and crisp, which is helped through the use of sugar instead of HFCS. On the other hand, the drink has a certain familiarity to us, which makes us feel like we've had a similar flavor but in a different brand. Whether that's the case or not, it's a flavor that isn't memorable enough from all the other brands that are out there. Packaging is clean and attractive, with a black cityscape that has a pink glow behind it. Vertical silver text is easy to read, with a clear emphasis on taste through the use of a superlative for "Tastiest." However, labeling the drink as a "premium caffeinated beverage" as opposed to an energy drink seems like a wasted effort. After all, it is an energy drink, promising energy and having added ingredients that are what you'd find in an energy drink. Overall, enjoyable flavor and clean image, but expected a bit more based on the product's name and positioning.
