Mad Tasty is a line of zero-sugar sparkling waters, each spiked with 20mg of full-spectrum hemp extract, with no THC in the mix. Its newest flavor, Unicorn Tears, has a charitable bent, and the brand is donating all profits from online sales for the first six weeks to the American Red Cross.
Three flavors are now on tap. We review them all below. (As always, the impact of CBD will vary based on your body and tolerance, but I found all of these to be quite relaxing.)
Mad Tasty Watermelon Kiwi – The watermelon trumps the kiwi here, but both are quite mild. Tons and tons of fizz help to hide the earthy hemp notes — and the fact that there’s not much sweetness here, making for a finish that is drying and short, but not as refreshing as I’d like. Rating: 5/10
Mad Tasty Grapefruit – That bitter grapefruit note is heavy on the nose, but it’s largely lacking on the palate, which is quite straightforward and understated, drinking like a heavily fizzy club soda. I like the neutrality better than the watermelon kiwi version. Rating: 6/10
Mad Tasty Unicorn Tears – Apparently unicorns cry bubble gum, because that’s what fizzes out of a glass of this stuff. The most saccharine of the bunch, it’s heavy on the nose with Hubba Bubba, with an ample amount of candy flavor making it through to the palate. I’d stick with the grapefruit. Rating: 5/10
