And, of course, when a company makes a claim as being "really good' in their name? They are just asking to be challenged. Actually, that's a "really good" marketing approach, Rob. Kudos.
Anyways, these bottles were on sale at our local health food store for $0.99 (regularly $2.19) so I bought a few different flavors to test - tart cherry, coconut and cucumber.

Review: The term "cool as a cucumber" is spot on with Rob's drink. It really is the perfect blend of that "ahh, refreshing" cucumber taste with just a hint of sweetness. To each their own, but if I was sitting outside on a hot day and craving just a little something more than water, this would be the epitome of refreshing to me. It doesn't have the syrupy feel of sodas or the artificial flavor of most diet drinks, or even some flavored waters. Maybe I just like the cucumber flavor.
Verdict: I really hate paying for drinks. Water is free. If I am paying for something in a liquid form, I want it to be full of goodness - like a smoothie or a milkshake. Or hey, you could probably buy a cheap bottle of beer for $2.19. I really, really like this stuff, though and am wondering if I could make a similar drink by adding a cucumber to plain water. Hmm...
If you are in a pinch and can catch it on sale, I'd definitely say buy it.
