The latest addition to the Sparkling Ice lineup is a lemonade flavor. The sparkling lemonade contains three percent juice and is sweetened with sucralose. While the lemonade flavor is very familiar, the bite from the carbonated water combined with the aftertaste of the sucralose overpowers it The lemonade contains 50 mg of green tea extract as well as B-vitamins. The drink comes packaged in a very tall and slender 17 oz. PET bottle. While the tall bottle lines are appealing the package does appear to be a bit top-heavy. The clear label is wrapped around the entire bottle. The white text is difficult to read (partly due to the dishwater color of the liquid inside) and the image of the lemon in an ice cube seems like an overly obvious graphical element. Overall the lemonade flavor is pretty straightforward, especially for a zero-calorie beverage, however the label is a bit hard to read and could benefit from a little polishing.
