The taste is crisp and refreshing. Definitely sweet but not too sweet. Has a bit of tartness to it as well. I like that these have much more real food ingredients but still give you that boost you would expect from an energy drink however you don’t get jittery, just focused. Reordering soon. Highly recommend.

I've been drinking this for years . This either counterfeit or they changed their formula . It watered down and loaded with so much artifial sweeter it's undrinkable. Also the can looks different - suspicious. It's too heavy to return but it's so bad I'm throwing it out despite the cost I paid. It's disgusting. I rarely write reviews but had to with it being this bad.
I am not an energy drink drinker nor am I addicted to caffeine. The reason why I chose the Celsius drinks to review is that I feel as though I am all out of energy by around 3PM that I begin to doze off. The added benefit of boosting my metabolism rate was also appealing. I drinks I chose to review were the Celsius Peach Mango and the Raspberry Acai.
Taste-wise it is so-so. I have been drinking v8 vFusion Raspberry Acai flavor and have enjoyed the taste a lot. I was hoping that this would taste somewhat similar, but was a bit disappointed. I wasn't able to differentiate between the tastes of raspberry, acai, but was able to identify the green tea. The taste which were decent. However, I wasn't all that fond of the after-taste, which I was able to taste after each sip. I don't like the taste of ginger, but could not taste it in this drink.
Energy-wise, I did find that I felt a bit more energized, and was able to make it through the rest of the day without feeling sleepy. I didn't experience any crashes.
As this drink supposedly increases the metabolism rate, I weighed myself before drinking it and after. I switched off between this Peach Mango flavor and the Raspberry Acai every day. Without significantly changing my diet or exercise pattern, I did not notice any changes in weight.
For the energy-boost alone, I would consider this drink a decent performer. I would not purchase this for the taste or the claims of increase in metabolism rate.
Just had my first Celsius energy drink a couple of hours ago. I didn't particularly have any initial reaction. I didn't feel a burst of energy. However, I now feel jittery and sort of dehydrated and out of sorts. I have only had XS energy drinks before. I like the taste of the lemon ones and they give you lots of boost with the B vitamins. I am a light weight as I don't drink coffee and very seldom have caffeine in any form other than chocolate. I won't be trying this one again. The way I feel right now is not worth it considering I didn't have an energy boost.
I ordered both the Raspberry Acai flavor and the Peach Mango and the Raspberry Acai is definitely the winner of the two. I thought the Peach Mango was awful with an especially bad aftertaste. The Raspberry Acai is a bit too sweet for my taste but it is far more acceptable, even pleasant if very cold and I'm not getting the harsh aftertaste I got from the Peach Mango - not at all actually. I am quite surprised that there is so much contrast between the two. So if you're going to try this, definitely go for the Raspberry Acai and forget about the Peach Mango. I have no idea if this stuff will do what it claims, but it does contain a lot of caffine, so be careful. I can say that it woke me up pretty well when I used it and I did feel a bit warmer than normal for awhile, which was strange. I'm not too happy that its sweetened with the artificial sweetener sucralose which is the same as Splenda. Because of that and the fact that I'm not one for consuming caffeine, I won't be drinking this very often.
I was excited with the concept of being able to burn calories and boost my metabolism by consuming one can of a flavored drink. After opening a can and taking one sip, the disappointment was written all over my face. The taste is horrible. I can not even force myself to drink one whole can. I sipped it as long as I could and poured the rest down the drain. The flavor is strange - I don't how else to put it. It is bitter and has a bad after taste. I could smell the Raspberry flavoring but the awful taste was too much for me to handle. I have tried other energy drinks like Monster, and I did not care for the taste of those either. The taste of the Celsius Raspberry Acai actually reminded me of those drinks, the staleness and bad after taste. On a plus note, one can only has 10 calories compared to other energy drinks that are very high in calories.
In regards to boosting your energy level, I could see a difference. I only drank half of a can, and after a couple hours I felt very fidgety, energetic and wide awake. However, my mouth keep watering like I was going to "up-chuck" and I kept burping up the flavor of the drink.
Even if I was guaranteed I would loose one pound a day by consuming one can daily, I would still not be able to force myself to drink it. Maybe the other flavors might be more appealing to my taste buds, but this flavor was not for me.
