GREEN BAY, WI – (UPDATE) This week’s Ultimate Kombucha Taste Test with GTS Synergy’s Watermelon Wonder, SHOULD have been an easy fix. I love watermelon. You cut open a nice chuck of the fruit and enjoy it on a hot summer day and boom it’s on!
However, I will be the first to say, I haven’t found many beverages that do a good job of replicating the flavor. I’ve even had fresh squeezed watermelon juice and I’m not really on board with it, so this week’s drink had an uphill battle from the get go.
For those new to this whole taste test challenge, it started from my daughter sending me some Kombucha for Father’s Day… Something she’d been telling me she was going to do for two years! Well when she surprised me, her & her significant other, Trevor aka “T-Man” suggested I do a taste test challenge and post my reviews, so that is what started all of this. I did the first couple on YouTube and the rest I do here on the blog, every Wednesday.
This week’s flavor is GTS Synergy’s Watermelon Wonder. And while it is not at the top of the list, it’s not a complete failure either. When you take a sip of this, at first it’s kind of hard to taste the watermelon, there is more of a “peppery” taste than anything, it’s only on the back end of a sip do you get your first hint of watermelon.
There is a slight vinegary taste with this one, as opposed to the last two offerings I tried. It has nice carbonation, so the beverage does pop in your mouth. And again it’s kind of hard for me to really be fair with this beverage, because as I mentioned above, I don’t think watermelon outside of eating it, taste very good in a drink.
As for some of the critical information off of the bottle. 70 calories and 18g of total carbohydrates.
So, for me the overall “UKTT” score this week is a 7… Just keeping it real:
