Verve Energy Drink
Last Updated: 6/24/2009 4:01 PM
The regular variety of Vemma’s Verve energy drink is a surprisingly nice tasting product. It’s main flavors come from the mangosteen juice, green tea, and vitamins, which result in a taste that’s tropical and sweet, but functional tasting to the finish. There’s a moderate amount of carbonation to the mix, which certainly helps give the drink some pop. From a functionality point of view, this product definitely isn’t your average energy drink. It’s made with a bevy of functional ingredients, including natural caffeine from guarana, taurine, D-Ribose, vitamins, minerals, and micronutrients (many of which are plant sourced). Plus, there’s the superfruit mangosteen, which adds antioxidants to the mix. The product has some kick as well as a definite “good for you” feeling in your mouth, which certainly makes this a memorable drink. On the outside, there’s a lot going on with this product’s packaging. Like the inside of the can, the outside has a feeling that’s definitely not “me-too," with orange and grey colored patterns in the background. This makes the text somewhat hard to read, although fortunately, there’s not too much of it (aside from the disclaimer at the bottom). It’s not the most attractive design out there, but again, it’s a design that won’t be confused for anything other than a Vemma product. Overall, solid execution makes this a very enjoyable entry.
