Calypso promises to offer it’s drinker a “Taste of the Islands”. And what makes you think more of an island, than the color blue. It’s that beautiful ocean blue, everyone is attracted to. So why not come up with a Ocean Blue Lemonade to bring you to that tropical paradise. Just as all their lemonades this contains real bits of lemon and is made with real cane sugar. So the question now is what is the flavor is Calypso Ocean Blue Lemonade? Well there are blue raspberries appear on the outside of the bottle, so that is a pretty strong hint. Speaking of the bottle, the design and the graphics really catch the customer’s attention. The vivid color makes it stand on easily on a grocery store shelf.
I enjoyed this drink, but it wasn’t great, I would rather have their black cherry flavor. The “blue” flavor was kind of raspberry, kind of blueberry, I wasn’t quite sure which. The “blue” flavor didn’t bring any additional tartness to the table. I enjoy having the little lemon bites to give it a more homemade feel. Like I said I would reach for a different flavor, but I don’t think that should stop you from giving this one a try.
