Ok, so this review is going to be quick and dirty. Last week… I think… I reviewed Koma Unwind and was surprised at how delicious it was. Today we have the sugar free version and once again I’m skeptical. After thinking about it for a half a second it does seem to be a little self-defeating to have a “relaxation beverage” with sugar in it. Looking at the ingredients of the sugar free Koma Unwind I see that Sucralose is present, so maybe this will at least resemble the fantastic flavor of its sweetened brethren. Only one way to find out.
The smell is very similar, grape-tastic, so hopefully the taste won’t fall as flat as I’m expecting it to. Here’s something fun that will lengthen this section to paragraph length. Even though the can says “Sugar Free” throughout the design my brain continuously blurs it out. It’s hidden right in front of my face. There, that worked well enough. Drinkin’ time.
Aww, drinking Koma Unwind Sugar Free is somewhat sad. It’s like Koma Unwind died and after some time had passed my mouth is trying to remember what it tasted like. The first flavor Koma Unwind Sugar-Free presents me with tastes like Mr. Chemical made it straight from the chemicals he grew in his garden. Eventually you get a flavor that is reminiscent of Koma Unwind, but it just can’t shake the taste of its artificial sweetener. Is it still a drinkable beverage? Yes, but all the joy has been removed so I’m definitely not going to recommend it. Let me make up a fun “math-esque” formula for all you egg-heads to follow. Koma Unwind > Melatonin Pill > Ether > Koma Unwind Sugar Free. Before you go testing out that “formula” just know that I once scored a 12 on an Algebra II Final Exam.
Verdict – Buyer Beware!
