I received a complimentary product to facilitate my Nestle Splash review, but all opinions are my own.
Nestle Splash is purified water with fruit flavoring and a hint of sweetness added. There are no calories, sugars, artificial flavors or colors. Nestle Splash comes in 5 flavors: wild berry, strawberry melon, açaí grape, mandarin orange and lemon, which was the flavor I sampled. The water is sweetened with Sucralose and acesulfame potassium. There is no fruit juice in Nestle Splash as the flavors come from “natural fruit flavor”.
Nestle Splash Review
The thing that hint my tongue first above any flavor was the abundant sweetness. While it is definitely sweet there was no trace of any fake sweetener aftertaste which I thought was pretty positive given that sucralose is usually a loser for me. The lemon Nestle Splash has a hint of lemon flavor, but none of the kick of citric acid you might expect to find in something labeled lemon. It’s more like an incredibly faint touch of lemon oil paired with other fruity, but indiscernible notes. There is a hint of a plasticky after-taste which may come from the flavoring or may come from the plastic bottle, but I’m not sure which.
Overall Experience with Nestle Splash
- It’s easy to drink. The lemon flavor was not particularly amazing, but it was definitely an upgrade when you’re bored with plain water.
- There are no calories, artificial colors or flavors in Nestle Splash.
- It comes in 16.9 oz bottles which are the perfect size for purse, car, work, or on the go.
The not so Good
- I’m not a huge fan of Sucralose because it can leave a bad aftertaste. I didn’t notice it when drinking my sample,
- While I am all for “natural fruit flavor” I’d like a little more info as to what that means. Are they oils, is the flavoring derived from fruit or is it a chemical compound, etc. I know this info is rarely something you get on a nutrition label, but that doesn’t mean I’m not interested to know more.
Overall, I think Nestle Splash could be a refreshing option over plain water if you’re looking for something a little different. The better I eat the less interested I become in artificially sweetened beverages, but if I was looking for a change of pace I could see myself grabbing a Nestle Splash. I’d also be interested in trying the other flavors just to see how they taste.
Full disclosure: I was provided with a free samples of Nestle Splash for review. The opinions and views presented here are solely my own.
