Like the other flavors of The Switch, Kiwi Berry is sweetened with a mixture of fruit juice concentrates which can lend to it's overly sweet taste. Although this flavor wasn't as sweet as The Switch Watermelon Strawberry, 8.3 Ounce Cans (Pack of 24), for me it wasn't as good as The Switch Black Cherry, 8.3 Ounce Cans (Pack of 24).     Although I can't see buying this drink for myself, my kids do like it. I think The Switch might be best billed as a healthy alternative to soda …

This is the second flavor of Switch I've had and it was... not terribly pleasant. First off, it seemed rather syrupy, but then I realized that's just because the sweetness factor is, apparently, set to eleven. It wasn't actually a struggle to finish it, but it was so cloyingly sweet it makes the average episode of "Full House" look like sour, cynical crap. It made me want to reach for insulin, though I don't take any.    I suppose this might be a good drink for young children …

This is not a bad product, just an average one. It's carbonated fruit juice so it's certainly a better choice than soda, and contains 100% of your vitamin C for the day. But, the taste is nothing special -- strong on the strawberry flavor and sweeter than you would expect from juice.     The price is rather steep once you figure in the per-ounce cost. I would rather have regular juice, skip the carbonation, and skip the high price. But, if you're trying to wean the kids off sugary …

The Switch Kiwi Berry is one of the most refreshing drinks that I have ever tried. It is 100% pure kiwi and strawberry juice and the difference from the regular sodas is quite obvious. Right from the first sip it feels richer and tastier than any soda product out there. After drinking it, you may never go back to regular sodas again. It works well by itself or with a meal. This may be an ideal substitute for sodas for kids, as it is a much more nutritious drink. The only problem that I have is the …

Switch is the "all natural" soda that has no sugar, artificial sweeteners or preservatives and with vitamin C. The flavor in question is kiwi berry. I must admit this is the third beverage by Switch that I have tried and I believe it tastes the best. The other flavors I have tried didn't taste bad, but really didn't taste like the flavors they were promoting. This soda tastes both like kiwi and berry. A very crisp and light flavored drink and it is only 135 calories a can. This isn't a bad alternative …

Upon first glance, one would think this is your regular energy drink. The size of the product does seem to convey this. At 8.3 oz, this is something a lot of people could finish in one or two gulps.    The flavor is nice and tasty. You can taste both the berry and kiwi. No funny aftertaste and it goes down easily. It is not tart nor is it too sweet. The carbonation isn't too overpowering. It's not as strong as a soda but it's not on it's last fizzy breath either. I could see …

The product description says it's "just juice, bubbles and Vitamin C." Doesn't that sound good? I decided to try the Kiwi-Berry flavor, but anyone reading this review should know that The Switch is not the sort of product I buy, and my opinion may be influenced by that fact.    The good points: It's got a nice gentle fizz. And yes, it's juice, made from concentrates. Sparkling water and apple and grape juice concentrates head the list of ingredients. All natural, which presumably …

The Switch Kiwi Berry is 8.3 ounces and has 135 calories, 15 mg of Sodium, 34 g of carbs (11% of daily value), 33 g of sugar and oh yeah 100% of your Vitamin C daily value. Mind you, a 12 oz can of Coke has 140 calories, 50mg of Sodium, 39g of carbs and 39g of sugar. So apart from the no sugar added, preservatives and all the added artifial stuff, there is not much of a difference in nutrition between these two products. Need the Vitamin C? Drink orange juice. Yes, the Switch may be a tad healthier …

I was really pleasantly surprised with this drink. It's made from 100 percent fruit juices with no added sugar... and still tastes great. I was surprised that it does actually use the juices that describes the flavor. For example, this product actually contains real Kiwi and a blend of different berry juices. It's kind of a rare thing these days (since everything uses artificial flavors and sweeteners now)    The only negative thing I can think of to say is that the bottles are …

Switch Kiwi Berry is quite delicious, the flavor is very enjoyable.    The only complaint I would have with this product is the addition of "natural flavors" which unfortunately is a very misleading term and can be very unhealthy substances but we don't know what they might be hidden under this generic term the government allows manufacturers to use.    Still, from the ingredient list, this appears to be far healthier than almost all carbonated drinks currently being sold.
review by . February 25, 2009
The Switch Kiwi Berry is a nice beverage alternate to soda, however, it packs a whopping 33 grams of natural sugar in its 8.3 oz. single-serving can. I found the taste refreshing and not too sweet, but I am not a regular consumer of carbonated beverages.    While this would be a fine alternative to sugar-added, preservative-laden beverages, it contains a high degree of carbs. Also, the first and second ingredients are not kiwi or berry juice but apple and grape juice concentrates. …

When my daughter saw that I had a can of this to try out, she said, "Oh, you have Switch!" Apparently it's her school's answer to soda.     I really liked this product. It's a very small can, but for the same calorie content as a similar amount of soda, one can have a carbonated beverage that doesn't have added sugar and has some vitamin benefits as well (100% of vitamin C).    It was not too sweet, and the flavor was not too strong. Normally strawberry kiwi …

I tried one 8.3 oz of Switch in Kiwi Berry flavor. The can is very small, about the size of a Red Bull. The drink is said to be 100% juice carbonated, with no sugar added, no preservatives, no corn syrup, no artificial colors and gluten free.     Each can has 135 calories, 15mg of sodium, 34g of carbs and 33g of sugar. On Amazon, the price comes out to about $1 per can.     I like the fact that Switch is all natural, but the sugar content is still quite high …
