This Sunshine Energy is absolutely delicious. The blueberry lemonade flavor is smooth and tastes amazing. It has a moderate amount of carbonation, and only 15g of sugar in the entire can. While it is not an energy drink per say, it delivers 70mg of caffeine in a 12oz can (5.83mg/floz). It is wildly refreshing, and would be rated much higher if it had any sort of kick to it.
Despite there being no artificial flavors or sweeteners and only 15g of caffeine, Sunshine Blueberry Lemonade is somehow delicious. I gave it a 9.1/10 in taste, but it could easily be higher if it had a more bold or stand-out flavor. There are few drinks I would prefer if I am simply trying to relax and enjoy drinking a practically decaffeinated beverage.
There is no kick whatsoever. It is not a true energy drink, so the lack of kick is not surprising in the least. Sunshine Blueberry Lemonade is meant to be “a bubbly harmony of flavor, function & feeling.” While the flavor is there, the function and feeling are not present in anyone accustomed to higher quantities of caffeine. The can is also rather boring, and is only rated a 2.5/10 because I like the font. If you are looking specifically for energy drinks to have any sort of stimulation or similar effect, you will be thoroughly disappointed in Sunshine Blueberry Lemonade.
Sunshine Blueberry Lemonade is wonderful. Since this is an energy drink review site, I am rating it as such. There is hardly any caffeine compared to most beverages on this site, so the kick is astronomically low (which lowers the overall rating substantially). If kick were not a factor, this drink based on taste and arbitrary enjoyment alone would easily surpass the 9/10 threshold. If you are trying to get revved up, then you should look elsewhere. If you want to relax and enjoy yourself, Sunshine Blueberry Lemonade is the right choice for you.
