Review: Gazpacho Verde
This flavor of Tio Gazpacho is noticeably different than the other two varieties, starting with the green color of the liquid. This product, which, like the other flavors, is high pressure processed, also contains the longest list of ingredients: water, cucumber, avocado, tomato, green pepper, kale, spinach, red onion, apple cider vinegar, olive oil, jalapeno, mint, Himalayan pink salt, cumin, black pepper and garlic. It tastes almost like a cross between a green juice and a gazpacho, with a complex flavor that is savory and lacks the tomato note that you’ll find in the other flavors. The use of avocado gives the product a different mouthfeel than the other flavors, while the jalapeno and pepper give it slightly spicy finish. It’s certainly pretty far from being a gazpacho in the traditional sense, but it’s also a very nice change of pace from the other flavors. Packaging and branding follow the same format as the other Tio Gazpacho flavors. The 12 oz. bottle is smaller than a standard high pressure processed juice, but it definitely feels like a sufficient size for this type of product. We really like the look of the brand, which, especially for a startup, has a very polished and easy to understand label. The green backdrop from the liquid sets it apart from the other two, which is also a plus. Overall, we’d probably reach for the other two flavors over this one, but it’s a great product in its own right.
