Renew (Mango Peach) - 2009
Last Updated: 11/25/2009 2:34 PM
Mango Peach is one of the better tasting flavors of the Vuka line. The lightly carbonated formulation starts off with a pleasant tropical aroma, which sets the stage nicely for the drink’s pleasant tasting mango and peach flavors. It’s crisp and clean, with a moderate amount of sweetness that works well with the drink’s tart finish. As far as functionality goes, the drink has 160mg of caffeine, which is unquestionably its strongest attribute. Otherwise, the product has B vitamins, D-Ribose, taurine, and ginseng, making this Vuka’s most traditional energy formulation. With 160mg of caffeine per bottle, it’s got a fair amount of kick to it, so that alone should give its formulation credibility. The exterior of the product follows the same format as the other flavors of Vuka, with a 16 ounce wide mouth aluminum bottle that’s nice looking as well as practical thanks to the use of a resealable top. That being said, there are some things that we’d change, particularly the use of white text for the word “Renew” and the small font size for the flavor name. In addition, we’re not really convinced that the word “renew” should be more dominant than “energy,” which is ultimately what’s going to sell this product. While the current rendition of the product is enjoyable end has kick to it, it would be a lot better if the package more clearly communicated the fact that this is an energy drink.
