Taster’s Review:

Well, I’m not drinking this at breakfast time, I generally drink teas with as much caffeine as I can get in the morning, because I need it!  Instead, this “Breakfast” Smoothie is a late-night treat, and what a treat it is!

Upon opening the pouch, my nose was greeted with a deliciously fruity scent that reminded me a bit of Juicy Fruit gum.  And, when served hot, it actually tastes a bit like bubble gum.  It is sweet and fruity and it is satisfying my sweet craving.  All that without caffeine, calories or guilt!  Winning!

I like that the fruit flavors here are well-balanced.  I can taste each element without one overwhelming the other.  I can also taste the honey-like sweetness of the honeybush, but not so much of the nutty flavor of the herb, which I think might distract from the “smoothie” aspect of this cup. Frank certainly knew what he was doing when he created this blend … but then, I should not be surprised, because Frank certainly does have a way with honeybush; this blend certainly hits that point home!

Overall, this cup is sweet and a little creamy, and it has just enough tangy flavor to keep it interesting.  It doesn’t need any additions at all, it tastes great served straight.  And as good as it is hot, it’s even BETTER iced.  It’s not quite as sweet as it is when it’s hot … it’s just pure refreshment!  I love this!
