Experience

I tried the Peach Mango flavor recently and wish I could find it in stores in NYC! It was delicious — not too sweet, and the flavors tasted natural. It was really refreshing, too, and the branding is beautiful. Sometimes I'll put a non-alcoholic drink in a glass so that I feel like it's blending in, but I wanted to show off the can.

Feedback

I can't say whether I felt the mood-boosting properties, so I'm not sure how much truth there is to that description. I was in a good mood before I tried Hiyo :)

Hiyo is amazing. It’s my go-to non alc beverage because it’s not overly sweet or bubbly. I also find it blends in with the spiked seltzer aesthetic, so as a non-drinker it makes me super confident to bring to a picnic or bbq.

They don't distribute in NYC! And I need them to!

Hiyo- first one you do feel a slight sense of calmness and by the time you get to the third one, maybe slightly more calm but fully awakened- but not enough of a difference between one and drink three to have to drink three. Also a tinge of a headache starts between one and two- but not bad. However, calmness is no diff from a wine buzz just without the sleepiness. It would take less wine to get there and the wine would def taste better. And at that time of the night I would rather have the wine sleepiness. Also, it’s quite expensive, $15, to get to the “float”. Overall, not recommend.

All three drinks taste great!! Big fan! The watermelon lime is probably my favorite! I love that it’s slightly carbonated; it makes it a versatile beverage. I was a bartender for 10 years and wish that this product existed during that time. Would have been a great drink to offer as a mock tail to my customers who weren’t drinking.

I was surprised to see how often hiyo replaced a glass of wine, spritz, or even an afternoon spindrift. It's bubbly but not too bubbly, flavorful and subtly sweet, not too sweet, and comes with the best floaty, elevated, present feeling that primes me for the evening, the beach, or an important meeting.

Feedback

I was going to say make it more bubbly, but they did that with their second production run and now the bubbles are perfect. I wouldn't mind more flavors though! Watermelon Lime is definitely my favorite followed by Blackberry Lemon and Peach Mango. I'm excited to see what they come up with next.
