REVIEW: Sprite Lymonade

Sprite Lymonade

Sprite Lymonade is the classic lemon and lime-flavored Sprite mixed with some lemonade. Okay, not exactly lemonade because the beverage itself isn’t an ingredient. It gets its elevated citrus flavor from, according to the bottle, clarified lemon juice from concentrate. I imagine Sprite Clarified Lemon Juice From Concentrate would’ve been a horrible product name.

It has ONE PERCENT real juice. And, somewhere, Mtn Dew Amp Game Fuel is laughing because it’s made with five percent juice, which is still not a lot, but much more than this.

It tastes like a cloudy Sprite that’s ever so slightly more lemony than the original. It’s definitely not carbonated lemonade, and it’s definitely not just Sprite. If you like the classic lemon-lime soda, I imagine you’ll also enjoy this because it isn’t a dramatic change from the original.

The “lemonade” portion tastes the part, adding a little more lemon flavor and sourness, but thankfully it isn’t as sour as a test batch made by aspiring young first-time lemonade stand proprietors.

Like with all Sprite varieties, it has no caffeine. Seriously, Coca-Cola, if you want to sell a little more of your popular drink, make one with caffeine. People love Sprite. People love caffeine. Do the math. I know you’ve probably done it in the lab, and the caffeine messes with the crisp, clean lemon-lime flavor, but I’d buy more if it had some. No pressure, Coca-Cola.

Sprite Lymonade is crisp, refreshing, citrusy, and any other adjective used to describe a good lemon-lime soda, but to be frank, it’s an unexciting variation. We have cherry, cranberry, and whatever Sprite flavors are available at Coca-Cola Freestyle dispensers, so pardon me if I feel this is a little boring, I mean, in Sprite spelling, boryng.

  1. No, do NOT add caffeine to Sprite or any other lemon/lime soda! There are those of us who are very sensitive to caffeine and our options are limited enough as it is. I had thought Root Beer was safe and found out not just Barq’s but a number of other Root Beers add caffeine. No wonder everyone is so uptight and easily irritated.

    1. Both Mugs Root Beer & Hansens are caffeine free. They suck to me but perhaps you might enjoy them. I love Root Beer, I couldn’t imagine not being able to have it.

    1. Ginger Sprite sounds like it would be the bomb, but I would rather stick a gun in my mouth than try watermelon Sprite.

  2. man there’s a bunch of little things changing about this site that i just noticed. No more weekend reading and now the pros and cons are done. That kinda sucks

  3. Man get someone to review soda that knows what they’re talking about and doesn’t leave a bashing ofna product instead of a review.

    1. Bashing? I wrote it’s a good soda. It’s a little boring, but, again, it’s a good soda. To be honest, I wish you left your opinion about Lymonade. It’s fine to disagree with me, but I think it’ll be helpful to others to share what you think of it. I’m not going to bash your opinion about it because I know after doing this for 15 years and writing over 1,000 reviews that tastes and expectations can be different between people.

      1. I appreciate what you do, Marvo.
        🙂 Your site takes me away for a little bit everyday

  4. In the late 90s, Pepsi test marketed Storm. It was basically a caffeinated Sierra Mist. I loved it.

    1. Came here to say this!

      Storm was included in the Star Wars campaign with limited edition cans. But it never made it past test markets. When I lived in northern Delaware they had Storm. One of the other markets was Denver CO.

      I thought it was good, but apparently very few people dd.

      Ginger ale is also caffeine free, but Ale-8-1 from Winchester KY adds caffeine. If anyone’s interested in it you should be able to find it at Cracker Barrel. There is also a cherry version made with cherry juice, but if you aren’t a fan of the regular version you won’t like the cherry version, either.

      And there is a caffeine free Barq’s root beer, but I think only in Utah. And what’s odd is that the diet is caffeine free everywhere.

      A few other exceptions – Sunkist orange has caffeine, other orange sodas don’t. It actually has quite a bit, similar to the caffeine content of Mtn Dew. A&W Cream also has quite a bit of caffeine. Other cream sodas are caffeine free.

  5. Mojito Sprite with the label being “mint” green with subtle graphics of mint leaves and limes using a lighter palette-swap . . .. the flavor would be regular sprite with no lemon . . just lime and they can market the f%$k out of “organic mint leaf extract” . .. or something like that . .. . I agree with Marvo .. .. this version was mediocre and the name sucks ..

  6. Meh it’s okay, but it’ll never be anywhere as close to as good as Sprite Tropical Mix. That stuff is absolute fire and I’m still buying the crap out of it here. This stuff is bland and you can make it by adding a few drops of lemon juice to regular Sprite. I don’t think it’ll last long.
