SoBe Lean Cranberry Grapefruit Flavored Beverage Review

SoBe Lean Cranberry GrapefruitI have fond memories of drinking SoBe Elixir in Orange Carrot when I was younger, but now the 90 calories and 23 grams of sugar per 8-ounce serving (adding up to a whopping 230 calories and 57 grams of sugar per 20-ounce bottle) are not what I want to be putting into my body. Heck, I could have a candy bar for those nutritional stats! That's why SoBe Lean drinks are so great - they have minimal calories, and they taste delicious. Alas, there's no Orange Carrot flavor in the lean variety, so I decided to spring the 99 cents for a 20-ounce bottle of the Sobe Lean Cranberry Grapefruit flavor.

I love the bottles of this beverage - they're so interesting, with the lizards crawling around, and the bright colors advertising herbal content (citrimax, chromium, and ginseng) are visually appealing. Maybe it's just me, but it makes the whole drinking experience even more fun for me. It sure is a lot more interesting than a glass of water!

I uncapped the bottle and took a nice long gulp. The flavor has a nice berry base with a kick of citrusy grapefruit. It's pretty sweet, so don't drink this if you're looking for flavored water (which it's not), but it's a great juice substitute.

Each 8 ounce serving of SoBe Lean Cranberry Grapefruit provides 5 calories, 100% of the RDA for vitamin C, and 35% of the RDA for chromium. I like the extra vitamin C in there; it makes me feel like I'm getting something more than just hydration (which is good in itself). The sweeteners used are acesulfame K and sucralose (Splenda).

I like the taste and would buy this again. I'm also intrigued enough to want to try some other flavors.
