Drink of the Week: Odwalla's Mojito Mambo

It's rare that you'll spot SFoodie chillin' with a diet drink in hand, especially one sweetened with stevia, which is arguably what one might imagine a can of Raid to taste like. But Half Moon Bay's Odwalla health beverage company has made us reconsider with its nine-month-old Mojito Mambo, made with a combo of rebiana (supposedly the best-tasting part of stevia, according to a company release) and evaporated cane juice, a hybrid Odwalla has copyrighted as Truvia.

If you're someone who simply cannot give more than 50 calories over to a drink, but still have that craving for something sweet and refreshing, this is a good choice. Full disclosure: We didn't even realize this was a "light beverage" when we purchased it (we were taken by the mocktail vibe), and still didn't until we detected a slight aftertaste about halfway through the bottle.
