Made with 50% juice, Vuka’s Awaken Orange flavored formulation is, as you might have guessed by the name “Awaken,' designed to be consumed in the morning. The juice blend for the drink, which includes white grape, apple, pear, and orange, provides the majority of the flavor for the drink. It has a fair amount of orange flavor to the mix, with the white grape and apple flavors also providing a note or two. Behind that, you’ve got a non-carbonated base that’s been sweetened with cane sugar and beet sugars, which gives the drink a good amount of sweetness and 44g of sugar per bottle. Functionally, the product has 160mg of caffeine per bottle, as well as added B vitamins, vitamin C, calcium, vitamin E, grape seed extract, white tea polyphenols, panax ginseng, zinc, and vitamin A. All in all, what’s inside the bottle isn’t exactly new or innovative (AM formulations have been around a while now), but its execution is on par with the competition's. Plus, of the Vuka lineup, we’re fondest of this product’s packaging, thanks to the orange hue that pairs nicely with the colors of the Vuka logo. This makes for something that looks like a cohesive design, whereas the others have a somewhat forced feeling to them. This gives the product a bright, positive vibe, which catches the eye from afar and gives the product an appealing, almost palate-whetting appearance. Overall, the best of the Vuka line.
