RATING: 6.4 OUT OF 10.

So, this is going to be a detailed review on the Sobe Lifewater Pomegranate Cherry Energy Drink. The only reason I can call this beverage an energy drink is because it has taurine, ginseng, and b vitamins which are three common ingredients found in energy drinks. So first off, why name your product SoBe? Well, SoBe is made by South Beach Beverage Company and if you combine the first two letters of the word south with the first two letters of the word beach you get SoBe. Now, the flavor is supposed to be Pomegranate Cherry but of course I did not taste any of those flavors. Instead I tasted a watered-down fruit flavored beverage similar to the likes of Propel only more fruity. This actually tasted quite nice and it was very refreshing. So, instead of just telling you the energy enhancing ingredients in this drink, I am going to tell you every single gosh darn ingredient that is present in this 20 ounce bottle. Per 20 ounce bottle it contains 100 calories, 0 grams of total fat, 55 milligrams of sodium, 42 grams of total carbohydrates, 24 grams of sugars, 0 grams of protein, 250 percent daily value of vitamin c, 50 percent daily value of vitamin e, 25 percent daily value of niacin, 25 percent daily value of vitamin b6, 25 percent daily value of vitamin b12, and 25 percent daily value of pantothenic acid. The ingredients are as follows: filtered water, sugar, erythritol, natural flavor, monopotassium phosphate, citric acid, ascorbic acid, potassium citrate, calcium lactate, modified food starch, cochineal extract, taurine, vitamin e acetate, calcium phosphate, gum arabic, panax ginseng root extract, calcium pantothenate, niacinamide, elderberry juice concentrate, pyridoxine hydrochloride, and cyanocobalamin. That is quite a plethora of ingredients but there is only 5 energy enhancing ingredients making this drink pretty weak. This drink was made to refresh you not to energize you a ton. Also, why name the flavor Pomegranate Cherry? There are no pomegranate or cherry juices in the ingredients. Perhaps that is what the "natural flavors" are. Well, that concludes my review of the SoBe Lifewater Pomegranate Cherry Energy Drink. Rating? I will give it a 6.4 out of 10. It tastes good, has a mediocre energy blend, and doesn't give you much energy.
