Topaz Review of Squirt

At a passing glance, Squirt seems like just another citrus drink along the lines of Sprite and Sierra Mist. Such assumptions would prove  false however, as Squirt is a unique grapefruit drink, with no real comparison. Here it is, the review for the winner of the "You Decide" Poll Number Three, Squirt.=

When you first sip Squirt, you get a powerful sensation that excites the tongue. You feel it before you taste it. It feels like it has something of a numbing affect, but it doesn't last long whatsoever. When you taste it a millisecond later, the grapefruit is very profound. The grapefruit flavor is very well made, and it replicates a real grapefruit nicely. Not too much so that it tastes like pure grapefruit juice however. Very balanced. However, I know a lot of people who don't like the flavor, so I suppose your opinion depends on whether or not you like grapefruit.


As I stated previously, Squirt packs a punch when you first experience it, making it something that can offer a unique experience. Other than that, Squirt has nothing more to offer than your standard 24 oz. Soda.


The art on Squirt clearly states that it is a grapefruit beverage, with a half of the fruit behind the title. "Squirt" is written in large, round letters smack dab in the middle of the logo, with information about the drink (caffeine free, etc.) circling the slice. The origin of Squirt's name comes from reports that it tends to squirt into one's mouth, like a freshly squeezed grapefruit. Clever.

I was very pleased with the uniqueness that Squirt had to offer, drifting from the norm, and setting upon us a beverage like no other. If you want to try a grapefruit soft drink, look no further than Squirt. If you don't like grapefruit, however, I would stay away from it, as it has a very strong grapefruit flavor. All in all a quality product that is unique in flavor, and unmatched in texture.
