Those of you who have been following the blog for the past year know that I have a bit of a history with MiO products. Aside from the MiO Energy line, the new orange tangerine flavor is the first new flavor to be released since the product launched last March. Additionally, this is the first flavor of MiO to be fortified with vitamins, and it includes ten percent of the daily value of vitamins B3, B6, and B12.
This is easily my favorite variety of MiO so far. I'm not exactly sure what it is about the flavor that makes it so good (although the tangerine may have a lot to do with it). It's just good. The artificial sweetener, although already very tolerable in the other MiO flavors, is barely even noticeable in the midst of the tangy citrus taste. You can taste the added vitamins a little bit in the final mixture, but I actually sort of like the taste, and I think that it adds an interesting character to the beverage. I have always been somewhat partial to citrus-flavored beverages, so perhaps my enjoyment of the new MiO is simply a bias on my part. But nevertheless, I still affirm that this is the best MiO yet, and I often find myself having to fight back the urge to add some to every single glass of water that I pour.
Also, if you decide to pick up a bottle, it's very good with club soda.
Verdict: Highly recommended
