This is part of a series of posts on juices and unique drinks that I have come across. Everyone knows the Pepsis and Cokes of this world and many sites cover the wines and beers, but I am bringing to you the rest of the beverage world.
For a while now I have been eyeing the Calypso brand lemonades at my local super markets. I finally decided to pick up one up last week to try. Calypso is made by King Juice Company. They have several different flavored lemonades that come in 20 oz glass bottles, with an easy to twist off lid. The bottles bear the catchphrase “Taste of the Islands”. There are lemon bits are the bottom of the bottle. They used pure cane sugar as the sweetener.
They did a good job balancing the strawberry with the lemonade. It wasn’t too artificial tasting. I have had some bottled strawberry lemonades that really just tasted like strawberry with a hint of lemon tartness, but this Calypso tasted like homemade lemonade mixed with fresh strawberries. I look forward to trying some of their other flavors.
