The Raspberry Razz flavor of Mamma Chia’s Vitality + Energy is another well-executed and enjoyable flavor to the lineup. Like the other flavors that make up this line, Raspberry Razz blends several primary ingredients, including juice (raspberry and lemon), sugar guayusa tea, and chia seeds, to make a very enjoyable tasting product. The raspberry flavor is mild and lightly sweetened (14g of sugars per bottle) -- just enough to tease the palate and keep you coming back for more. Like all Mamma Chia products, this one is thick and has some chew, which is definitely part of the fun of having one of these beverages. Plus, these ingredients give the product a healthy dose of omegas, fiber (6g), protein (4g) and caffeine (90mg). All in all, we really love what’s inside the bottle. On the outside, the company has done a very nice job of using the Mamma Chia brand in a way that the product feels familiar, but also has its own identity. The silver background definitely says “functional,” and it’s relatively clear that the product is an energy drink. If there’s anything about this product (or line as a whole) that we’d tweak, it would be to make the flavors a bit more different from one another. As it stands right now, the both the visual and flavor differences are very subtle. But don’t let that put a damper on this product or the others -- we really do enjoy them greatly. Overall, a very well-executed product that makes for a nice line extension for Mamma Chia.
