When it comes to gas station drinks, you have several options: Fountain drink, water, Gatorade, canned sweet tea, and of course, lemonade. Which kind of person are you? I typically lean toward a fresh 44-oz Dr Pepper and Hot Cheetos. Still, I do crave lemonade every now and then, which is why I'm excited to finally rank my favorite flavors of Calypso Lemonade.
Calypso Lemonade is basically the Arizona Tea of lemonade. We love our Simply Lemonade, but Calypso Lemonade is the go-to brand for road trips, snack breaks at work, and more. If you love sweet drinks, you're going to love Calypso. Here are our favorites, ranked from worst to best!
Calypso Lemonade, Ranked
Here's my beef with Black Cherry: it didn't have the "taste of the islands" I was hoping for. Disclaimer: cherry isn't one of my favorite flavors, but I was hoping my taste buds would've loved it anyway. It tastes like a cherry Starburst in liquid form. We all know strawberry is the best.
By the way, each Calypso is made with real lime or real lemon bits, real sugar, and natural flavors!
Triple melon is very sweet, y'all! If you love watermelon, this might be your favorite. It was a bit too sour for my taste buds.
Paradise Punch is the go-to flavor for those who love Hawaiian Punch and Minute Maid Fruit Punch. It's not a tier-1 flavor for me, but still yummy.
(I'd love to spike this with vodka.)
Calypso Ocean Blue Lemonade gets to climb above the previous flavors because it reminds me of Cool Blue Gatorade. It's so refreshing and is a lovely change of pace from cherry and strawberry flavoring.
Coral Blast, now we're talking. I was definitely getting tropical flavors here. (Tasted like Tropical Starburst flavors in liquid form.) So yummy, y'all! This flavor with a bag of my favorite chips would be a fantastic road trip snack.
If you love kiwi, then you probably have a love for sour apple-flavored treats and drinks. That's exactly what this flavor reminded me of.
Island Wave is the perfect flavor for pineapple lovers. This sour and sweet combo lit up my eyes. Definitely a tier-2 flavor!
Strawberry lemonade is my go-to lemonade flavor when I visit restaurants. Who doesn't love it? This Calypso Strawberry Lemonade drink is fantastic and truly rules summertime (right behind the next two flavors).
You can't go wrong with this flavor if you love strawberries.
Of course, good ol' fashioned lemonade will always reign superior. It's not too sugary and pairs perfectly with summertime meals like burgers, hot dogs, and more.
This flavor will never get old. We can't always be in the mood for ultra-fruity drinks.
Okay, this Calypso flavor is so delicious I forgot to snap a picture of the custom glass bottle. Here in Central Texas, we love peaches. (Shout out to Fredericksburg.)
Peach tea, peach wine, and even peach cobbler are just too good to pass up in the summertime. Thank you, Calypso. This is the ultimate flavor for Texans.
