Guru Sparkling Energy Water Lime

This is the last of the new Guru Sparkling Energy Waters. I picked it up at a fancy grocery store in Hamilton for $2.99, but I have seen it at a few places in Toronto and southwestern Ontario.


Unlike the other two Guru energy waters, this one is a tad cloudy and screams "flavored water". It smells like a Sprite/7-Up/Mountain Dew combo with hints of creamy limes but it tastes nothing like it. It actually tastes like club soda with a generous squirt of fresh lime juice. The excessive carbonation makes the first part of each sip taste like nothing, but after that you are hit with a healthy dose of sour limes that make your mouth pucker up.

Green tea and stevia notes are present in the aftertaste, but thanks to the strong lime flavor, they are not as prevalent as with the other two Guru energy waters.


There are 100 mg of caffeine and the effects are noticeable within 10-15 minutes. I got a very mild case of the jitters that lasted mere minutes and then a short period of clarity and focus before the caffeine kicked in and gave me a nice 2 hour kick. There was no drama at the end when the effects ended.

Cost - $2.99
Taste - 8.2/10
Energy - 7/10

Overall - 15.2/ favorite of the Guru Sparkling Energy Waters
