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 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.
I tested this product and inititally wasn't impressed at all. So, I had several friends taste it and see what they thought. Maybe it just wasn't for my taste buds.
At the end of the day about 90% of the people that tried it didn't much care for it, for a variety of reasons.
Some didn't like the taste and prefered regular green tea. Some experienced a 'crash' effect after drinking it Some had doubts about all the health claims surrounding it
I think those were the main three complaints with this drink. As I said before I was not impressed in the least. Maybe for someone out there this is the right product for him, but there seems to be so many other (better) options out there.
