Coconut-Strawberry Lemonade – $5.49
featuring Minute Maid® Zero Sugar Lemonade
The beverage has arrived early, as it wasn’t scheduled to debut until August 21. This is a traditional Minute Maid strawberry lemonade topped with a coconut cream.
It’s very creamy and it tasted a little strange with almost a hint of smoke flavor, though we couldn’t identify whether that was coming from the straw or the cream. It wasn’t fully off-putting, just out of place. That being said, once it’s mixed into the lemonade, the smoke flavor is largely taken care of and it becomes one uniform drink that is creamy and sweet.
The coconut cream does help to give some fluff and body to the lemonade, and the small note of citrus from the lemonade helps to cut through the sweetness and thicker aspects of the cream. It’s well balanced, but nothing seriously exceptional. Overall, I enjoyed it and would likely get it again.
