I picked this up the other day expecting it to be a Vitamin Water rip-off. After all, the evidence makes this a reasonable deduction: The sideways text...the minimalist color design...the fact that it is vitamin-enhanced water...the fact that this particular flavor shares a name with a flavor of Vitamin Water...the list goes on. But I was intrigued, nonetheless, even if only by the color of the beverage. After avoiding the drink for several days, I finally tried it recently, and I must admit that I was surprised. This is not a wonderful beverage, don't get me wrong, but it was as lot different than I expected. 

First of all, it was sweeter than other drinks of its sort. It is a diet drink, however, and is sweetened with Splenda (the only artificial sweetener that I regularly find palatable), so it is not terribly sweet. It does have a sort of mouth-drying aftertaste reminiscent of Powerade, though, which put me off of the beverage a little bit. Although the bottle only says "Multi-V," it is clear that this is lemon-lime flavored, and very artificial, at that. 

It's really not bad. Something about it enticed me to finish the entire thing, even though I had to separate each drink with a drink of water to compensate for the mouth-drying sensation. I wouldn't not recommend it, but I also don't think that I could recommend it at full price, assuming that to be likely somewhere around $2.00. It's not bad, but it's not good, either, especially not in the face of other alternatives.

Verdict: Worth a try
