Love the taste and branding, but I've never noticed any effect. So it's just super expensive sparkling water as far as I am concerned.

these are yummy but way too pricey for my fridge preferences! i never buy these on my own, but will opt to drink one if available at events.

I love the packaging and the concept, but the aftertaste bugs me to the point where I can't drink more than a few sips.

Nice packaging, but the taste was not there unfortunately for me. Could not finish the can

Feedback

Maybe add new flavors, more mainstream.

So delicious. Really loved all the flavors, the aesthetic, the website, the unboxing.

Feedback

A lot of adaptogens require other ingredients to be effective in the body - for instance, turmeric is fat-soluble so when it's mixed with water, it has minimal effect. Ashwagandha works best for relaxation and lowering stress when it's the root powder (vs leaf) paired with black pepper. Wish there was more transparency around this as well as the quality of the ingredients.

Tried the peach ginger flavor, it tasted pretty good but didn't feel much different afterwards. Just a good sparkling water.

3.5 rounded up! I would drink them at Sweetgreen all the time. Also, whoever does their content for Instagram is amazing. I love their content!
