An Honest Review of New Watermelon Lime Olipop

Summer is here and that means a couple things: We’re all preparing to be drenched in boob/butt sweat for three-plus months, and we’re all looking for cool, refreshing drinks with which to stock our refrigerators (you know, to mitigate the boob/butt sweat). Olipop just released what should be the perfect summer bev: a Watermelon Lime prebiotic soda. But is it the low-sugar summertime sip of our dreams? I cracked open a can of this new Olipop flavor to find out.

Olipop Watermelon Lime

If you like a watermelon paleta on a hot summer day, you’re going to love this. This is the only Olipop I’ve seen that requires refrigeration (it says “store refrigerated” on the can), and I assume that’s because one of its main ingredients is watermelon juice, which certainly isn’t shelf stable. 

And that’s really what you get here—big, juicy, fresh watermelon flavor. It definitely has a litttttle bit of a saccharine sweetness because it’s made with Olismart, which is the brand’s proprietary blend of sweeteners. It’s low sugar, though, with only 5 grams of sugar per can. (By comparison, Mtn Dew Major Melon has 73 grams of sugar.) You don’t get a ton of lime flavor, but there’s a little bit of tartness in the background that’s nice. Honestly, I think this is one of the best Olipop flavors yet, especially if you like fruity seltzer. It’s refreshing like a seltzer but it’s sweet, too. Stocking the fridge with these will make sweating through the summer a little more palatable.
