Opta Organic Energy Drink Review - Berry:
Well this is one of the few Organic Energy Drinks that I have reviewed to date and I have to say so far I have been pretty impressed with all of them. Opta Energy, from Sunopta comes in two flavors, berry and passionate orange. The 16 ounce drink is USDA Organic which I have to say I really don't know too much about as far as qualifications go but if you want to read up about it the USDA would probably be the best place to do it. The can itself is pretty plain and simplistic, but that seems to be the standard marketing practice for anything organic at the moment. Other than those basic facts I really don't know where you can pick one up as the Sunopta Website does not even list the product. So the only thing left to do is put it to a taste and kick test...
Opta Organic Energy Drink Review - Berry: Taste
Well I know a lot of you probably think bland taste when you are thinking organic... and I used to be in the same boat. But Opta Energy as well as the few other organic drinks I have tried seem to have the taste aspect figured out. Opta Energy has a distinct Pomegranate, Raspberry and Green Tea taste to it and the blend seems to work out pretty good. The green tea flavoring does seem to add a little tartness to the overall effect, but the drink still goes down pretty smooth. I would have to say the pomegranate flavor seems to be the one that overwhelms, which in itself is not bad. Taste Rating - 8.4
Opta Organic Energy Drink Review - Berry: Kick
This 16 ounce Energy Drink has a decent blend of energy ingredients including 75 milligrams of caffeine per serving (150 milligrams total) as well as a host of b-vitamins, organic green tea extract and organic guarana. So overall it creates a nice buzz for an organic drink, one that is comparable to your original Monster Energy Drink. It has the same kick as well as similar sugar content. Albeit the sugar in Opta Energy is from organic cane juice... Nonetheless a sugar which brings this reviewer down after a couple hours. So good initial kick, but slight crash from sugar effect. Kick Rating - 8.6
Opta Organic Energy Drink Review - Berry: Final Judgment
I wish I could tell you more about the product, at least where you could pick up a sample and the MSRP, because at the very least it is worth trying once. However, with no information on the company website all I can tell you is that it has a nice berry taste with a bit of a bite and delivers a pretty decent kick. If anyone knows where you can pick one of these up online, or know of a c-store where you can buy, then feel free to chime in below in the comments section. Final Judgment - 8.5
