Despite its name, this is hardly a remix of the original variety, though a bit kinder on the tongue. There is all the orange expected, a lick fresher and smidge more realistic. No sips would be mistaken as actual juice, but it is a pretty good facsimile of the real thing. Its texture helps, fleshy and rather robust considering the omission of any fruit nectar. The sweetness achieved from the professedly picayune five grams of sugar is actually fabulous, impressively masking any stevia nastiness and helping this beverage drink like it has more than simply forty five calories. The privation of complexity begins to wear your palate as you sip however, tasting the same thing you have tasted so many times before, and often times better. Its small size helps this, but that should not be why this is only eight ounces.
Each can contains: caffeine (eighty milligrams), taurine, inositol, green tea, A, C, D, E, and several B vitamins. Its kick is about what you would expect, lasting an hour, maybe an hour and a half. On the whole, Verve Remix is better than its orange colored cousin, but not my much.
