Is this line of unusual flavored juice drinks from Mistic old news?
I bought a cloudberry flavored one today, passing up the Mangosteen, Acerola, and a couple of other exotic flavors. The gimmick seems to be that these are flavors from around the world: the lable has a little world map with a symbol (in this case a Viking ship in the area of Sweden) where the flavor comes from.
Anyone tried any of the other flavors? Does this really taste like cloudberry?
I've tasted a few of them, since my daughter is fond of drinks of that type. I find them all too cloyingly sweet for my taste.
I've had Finnish cloudberry liquer, but I'm not sure how much that tastes like cloudberries, either.
I was introduced to the mangosteen flavor in Chicago by a friend a few years ago. I loved it, but unfortunately, Mistic products are not to be found in Wisconsin. Luckily I will soon be moving to a state where they exist. They're sweeter than I usually like, but for a treat now and then with a salty snack, it's pretty tasty. I tried a non-mangosteen flavor once, but I forget what it was and whether it was any good. They seem to have very little of the 'exotic' fruit and are mostly grape juice or something. But I like the flavor of it, so I don't really care.
