While grocery shopping in the beverages aisle a few days ago, I noticed a deal on Bai Antioxidant Infusion beverages.
I’d seen a few commercials recently on these drinks and decided to take a closer look. I picked one up and peaked at the nutrition label. From what I could tell, it looked okay. Not the best source of vitamins and nutrients, but it seemed to be a suitable drink to indulge in occasionally.
I bought three flavors: strawberry lemonade, clementine, and mango.
I got home, put away my groceries, and tried a few sips of the strawberry lemonade flavor. Sour flavors are some of my favorites, so naturally I saw the strawberry lemonade flavor and had to try it first.
It was different than I expected, but in a good way. I thought the flavor would be too bitter and not sweet enough, but surprisingly it turned out to be just bitter enough. It definitely tasted like strawberry lemonade. I ended up drinking about half of the bottle (around 9 fl. oz.) in one sitting while I ate my dinner.
My boyfriend, Slade, drank the clementine flavor. I had a few sips of this one, too. As soon as I took the cap off, it radiated with the smell of clementines which made it more appealing to drink. The clementine flavor was stronger than I anticipated. It exuded the same amount of bitterness as the strawberry lemonade. I enjoyed it about as much as the strawberry lemonade. Maybe just a little less because it was missing the sour component of the strawberry lemonade which I really liked.
The last flavor I tried was the mango. This flavor exhibits more of a bitter aftertaste. Since mangoes aren’t citrus or sour flavored, it didn’t quite emanate the same bitterness as the other two. I loved the mango flavor overall though. It definitely blew clementine out as a second contender.
I’ll rate these flavors in descending order of best taste as strawberry lemonade, mango, and clementine.
I give strawberry lemonade 4.5 out of 5 stars. Mango gets 4 out of 5 stars, and clementine receives 3 out of 5 stars.
