Review: Strawberry Acai (2011)

Being one of the two coconut water enhanced flavors of the KeVita line, this variety is sure to catch some eyeballs given the buzz surrounding that ingredient nowadays. However, the flavor in this product doesn’t really line up with the name Strawberry Acai. Neither of those fruit flavors are easily found in this formulation, with coconut and apple instead being the dominant flavors. The vinegar note that’s found at the finish quickly washes away the fruit flavor, leaving behind a lingering note of bitterness. Still, it drinks better than most kombucha products (which we suspect are this drink’s primary competition) that are on the market today. Functionally, the product contains 20+ billion CFUs (probiotic content) at the time of bottling, but we can’t tell you how that will work from a functional perspective. Packaging is a 16 oz. glass bottle that feels like a cousin of GT’s Kombucha. That said, latching on to the kombucha consumer seems like a pretty smart move for this brand – they are certainly buyers who are in tune with probiotic beverages. However, giving the product a little more of its own visual identity might be a good thing. Overall, this feels like a marketable drink in the natural channel, but giving it a little more strawberry and acai flavors would make us think more highly of this product.
