"Tropical", "Ocean", "Wild" are all words soft drink makers like to add to the front of their flavors to make them sound more exotic. Today I am going to be reviewing the Tropical Mango Lemonade from Calypso. This "tropical" drink contains actual mango puree, not some artificial mango flavoring. It also contains pure cane sugar as the sweetener and pieces of lemon bits to give the drinker a more true lemonade experience (or to give you the feeling that someone back-washed into your drink at the factory).
This is the first time I have had mango and lemonade together and I think it works well. The mango flavor is pleasant and geniue (that's what using real mango puree will do). There is a little bit of an aftertaste that will bring down the rating of this drink. Is the mango flavoring hiding a inferior lemonade? Maybe, but I still think this drink is worth at, at least for the originality of combining mango and lemon.

This is my favorite flavor of Calypso Lemonade. The mango flavor stands out and reminds me of being on a beach somewhere in the Caribbean. I buy a whole case whenever I can find one at my local Wal-Mart.
