I bought a FUZE slenderize cranberry raspberry beverage because apparently I can’t read, and had no idea it was a diet-type drink when I bought it. All I saw was cranberry and raspberry as the flavor and just had to try it out. It only has 10 calories, and I was pleasantly surprised by the taste.
When I first tried it, I got that instant fake sugary sweet taste in my mouth, which is what made me take a double look at the bottle and hey, it’s only 10 calories! That explained the lack of sweetness that I usually associate with FUZE beverages. However, I noticed something else as well- a major taste of raspberry, with no hint of cranberry whatsoever, which I was disappointed in. It smells like cranberry, but the raspberry overpowered the taste of cranberry entirely, which was a bit of a let down.
But for a diet drink, I was very satisfied. The taste is sweet, but light, and the raspberry taste is actually really refreshing. I prefer cranberry, but it is still faintly detectable in the after-taste if you really shake the bottle up. For a diet drink, this beverage is really tasty and satisfying.
I actually like how it’s not overly sweet. Once I got over the fake sweet taste, I could really focus on the berry, which was tart and like having a raspberry fresh in your mouth. It has less of a store-bought flavor and more of a fresh berry juice taste, without being overly sweet or tart. I was able to finish the whole bottle in the car on the way home (I was thirsty), and since I bought 2 of the same flavor am now enjoying my second bottle.
I would definitely buy this beverage again. It’s not as sweet as I’m used to, and more fresh-tasting, which is a great change-up from the regular FUZE drinks I like. It definitely has more flavor than I would have expected from a 10 calorie drink, and isn’t so tart that it turns you off. I wish it had more cranberry flavor, but it’s not enough to keep me from buying this again. I am very surprised I liked it, and have drunk nearly 2 bottles, when I normally really stray away from anything diet-related.
