Pepsi was on a rampage during last night’s Super Bowl game. There was great irony in the airing of the “sell out” MacGruber sketch and the Bob Dylan and Will.I.Am “Forever Young” video. We’re sure many Dylan fans are about to blow a gasket today, but we’re also pretty sure that all will be forgiven because the new Pepsi logo is an Obama campaign button. But we digress because we’re here to talk about SoBe Lean Blackberry Currant. SoBe dusted off some 1950s technology and gave us some 3D lizards during last night’s game; but more importantly, they gave us one of the best sugar free drinks we’ve reviewed in a long time. SoBe Lean Blackberry Currant is awesome.
Blackberry drinks have always been a little harsh to The Glucoholic. Inspired by expensive marketing, he plowed right through his reservations and picked up a twenty ounce bottle and knocked it back. We have to start our praise with the bottle. SoBe has always gone beyond the call of duty when it comes to packaging. We’ve always loved the lizard on the bottle, and the drinks always have great graphics and striking color. The taste is even better than the appearance. The blackberry is understated. The grape seems to be a perfect compliment, and provides a wonderful freshness and flavor that almost reminds you of watermelon. This drink has a silky-while-fruity quality, and the flavor is consistent from beginning to end. SoBe Lean Blackberry Currant is an early contender for this year’s top products list. We highly recommend it. If you’re already a SoBe fan who has not tried this flavor, do yourself a favor and pick some up today.
