Claire Baie Strawberry Lemonade

Claire Baie Strawberry Lemonade

Folks, I think this is it. I believe we have finally reached the bottom of our cache of Claire Baie beverages. I can’t say it has all been enjoyable, but at least I went out with something pleasant.
It’s in the mid 90’s now and it’s so humid that you can feel the air move when you walk through it. It’s kind of disturbing, and it really, really just needs to rain to get all of the water out of the air. I wonder how much of the humidity is just from people’s sweat? Ugh, that’s gross. How much of the moisture you feel in the air is other human’s grossness? I needed to cool off and drink something cold and refreshing. What better beverage to fight the summer miserableness than lemonade? This is made with real sugar, and it is sweet. I really want this to taste like fresh strawberries squeezed into classic lemonade, and well about half of that came true. I would say it has a “strawberry” flavor, but it doesn’t taste like perfectly ripe fruit. Most people would never complain about this, but I get picky. Regardless , it helped me pretend I was dehydrated from sweating so much, and it had a decent taste. I can’t really complain. I’m sure you’ll love it.

Claire Baie Raspberry Lemonade

Claire Baie Raspberry Lemonade

You wake up one day and your back in your childhood. You’re old enough to do somethings on your own, but young enough that you still have to go where your parents drag you. It just so happens that where they dragged you on this return day is to the beach. You totally got sunburnt, but you don’t care because you played in the water and dug a sweet hole in the sand pretty far back, but you still hit the water table, or what you would later learn was the water table. After everyone is exhausted and had their fill you hit up a little shack restaurant nearby for hotdogs and fries. As a treat your mom totally lets you get a Slush Puppie and it is heaven to your young taste buds. You close your eyes and take a big sip of the syrupy sweet goodness that tastes vaguely like raspberries. When you open your eyes you are nowhere near the beach. You look down and you realize that you’re middle aged and your drinking something that is supposed to be raspberry lemonade, but it tastes like childhood. You forgive it for tasting more like sugar water than lemonade because for a few moments you escaped work and dug a sweet, sweet hole.

Claire Baie Sparkling Water Blackberry Raspberry

There have been so many of these that I’m not even trying anymore. If you are a rational human being and think sucralose is disgusting, then steer clear of this. If you are a mutant and it doesn’t bother you, well then sit back and get ready to enjoy some berry flavoring. I’ve said it before but if they got rid of the sweetener altogether, this would be a good seltzer.

Claire Baie Classic Lemonade

Claire Baie Classic Lemonade

When I think of “classic” lemonade what comes to mind is an ice cold picture on a sweltering hot day which only contains three ingredients; water, lemon juice, and sugar. It’s a simple recipe that can be hard to screw up if you keep it basic. Claire Baie did not keep it basic. They used concentrate and added a handful of other ingredients that do nothing but detract for the simple glory that should be this drink. It doesn’t taste like childhood freedom it tastes like plastic and fake lemons.I could have really used a nice lemonade today too. Damn.

Claire Baie Naturally Flavored Sparkling Water Beverage With Juice Kiwi Strawberry

Claire Baie Naturally Flavored Sparkling Water Beverage With Juice Kiwi Strawberry

It always seems that the drinks that we are lukewarm about, especially the diet ones, are what companies send us the most flavors of. There has been so much Claire Baie in our lives over the past few months and I’m afraid the sheer quantity is effecting our reviews. As I’ve said before these drinks were not created with me as their target audience. It’s true that I watch my sugar intake sometimes, but I have never been on a diet, and I am not a fan of zero calorie sweeteners, especially sucralose. There is a world of people out there who are on diets though and rely on beverages such as this to help curb their craving for sweet carbonated drinks. I think those people would be happy with this. If you drink sucralose on a regular basis you have to get acclimated to it and that weird taste probably doesn’t even register to you anymore. That taste is what is holding this drink back in my eyes, but if take that out of the equation and you have a decent kiwi strawberry drink. I’ve had a lot of kiwi strawberry stuff in my life, but I don’t think I’ve ever had a fresh juice where those were the ingredients. Man, I bet that would be the best. Compared to that this would be a pale imitation, but since 99.9% of the population has probably never drunk such a thing this is very passable.

Claire Baie Naturally Flavored Sparkling Water Beverage With Juice Lemon Lime

Claire Baie Naturally Flavored Sparkling Water Beverage With Juice Lemon Lime

In Claire Baie's most diet move ever, we have this lemon lime drink. This drink comes complete with all of the accommodations that one would desire, such as but not limited to include cup holders, passenger side mirror, AM/FM radio and color matched door handles. It also has the most, but not unbearable diet taste. Finally, the taste that dieteers can understand. I'm sure gaggles of people are just dying for that fake flavor they so crave. The lemon lime is standard lemon lime. Nothing to go crazy about.

As I mentioned, it's not the worst diet drink I've ever had so if you have some sort of brand loyalty towards Claire Baie and are into diet drinks, this is the drink for you. Otherwise, this is as average as an average drink can average.

Claire Baie Naturally Flavored Sparkling Water Beverage With Juice Orange Mango

Claire Baie Naturally Flavored Sparkling Water Beverage With Juice Orange Mango

Oh look, another Claire Baie zero calorie sparkling water. I’m beginning to think that these drinks Are going to haunt me for the rest of 2016. It’s no secret that neither Mike nor I are fans of sucralose sweetened drinks. Unfortunately most of this companies beverages use just that. We know these drinks have a market and people buy and presumably enjoy them. We are just not those people.

This Orange Mango one is the best one I’ve had yet though. Somehow the citrus blends with the sucralose and the result tastes like kids vitamins, a flavor I’m not ashamed to say I enjoy. Who didn’t eat more than their allotted quantity of Flintstone vitamins when they were little? I certainly did. The orange and mango flavors in here are actually pretty decent. It’s just that dumb sucralose that brings the whole thing down for me. So yet again if you don’t mind sucralose, check these things out, if you are grossed out by it steer clear. It’s a simple plan.

Claire Baie Naturally Flavored Sparkling Water Beverage With Juice Blueberry Raspberry Lemonade

Claire Baie Naturally Flavored Sparkling Water Beverage With Juice Blueberry Raspberry Lemonade

I had anticipated this being completely horrible. Even drinks that are sweetened with real sugar that are this particular hue of blue usually spell trouble. They are always overly sweet and taste only of sweetener and nothing of the flavor they are meant to be. This really doesn’t stray too far from that equation, but at least Claire Baie didn’t go overboard with the sucralose. I mean it’s surely there in all its weird and unlikable ways for those who are not used to it, but it’s not the only thing I taste. There is the general diet lemonade along with a vague berry flavor on top of that. I personally didn’t enjoy it very much, but there must be a large group of people out there who drink and enjoy these diet sparkling drinks because there are more than enough companies pumping them out. I’m sure those people would find it enjoyable enough.

Claire Baie Naturally Flavored Sparkling Water Beverage With Juice Pomegranate Berry

Claire Baie Naturally Flavored Sparkling Water Beverage With Juice Pomegranate Berry

Here at Thirsty Dudes we understand that every beverage is not for everyone. Specifically there are beverages out there that are not made for people like us, aka people who aren’t counting calories to try and drop a few lbs. When we come across these drinks we try to give them the benefit of the doubt and we attempt to be in the mindset of someone who this drink is actually produced for. These zero calorie, sweetened, sparkling waters are one such category. We try to find the best in the drinks, but after drinking so many that all taste fairly similar, it becomes hard. The sad truth is that when it comes to beverages like these a good portion of the flavor comes from the sucralose, or whatever zero calorie sweetener is being used. Some flavors cut through it better than others, but it’s always there and I never enjoy it. There are also the unfortunate flavors such as this that the supposed flavor of the drink is weaker than the sucralose and you only really get it in the aftertaste. I love pomegranates, even as much as I love a variety of berries, but they really aren’t allowed to shine in this. All I’m getting is gross diet-ness. People say you get used to it, but I still haven’t and I don’t think I want to. I’ll avoid my calories by limiting my sugary beverage intake instead of switching out the sugar for a different sweetener that ruins everything.

Claire Baie Sparkling Water Pomegranate Cherry

Claire Baie Sparkling Water Pomegranate Cherry

Is this a treat? Eh, it's not bad. Some of the other versions of this have been less diet tasting. This, so far, has taken the cake as far as "the award for the most diet goes to..." It's not awful. It's really not. It's not remarkable. It just unfortunately falls into that "just another diet drink" pile that only people like your aunt drink. Your poor aunt, she'll never lose that weight if she keeps eating Quarter Pounders like she does. No matter how much diet drinks she drinks.
