The GUTsy Captain Kombucha Drink : Review

The Delivery

The guys over at The GUTsy Captain sent me a wee message on Instagram asking if I would like to try one of their boxes, and challenge me to try the drink for 1 week and to share my thoughts and feedback if I notice any benefits.

I am always up for a challenge and to try new products so I said yes and gave them my details.

Presentation

I have to just give a solid 5/5 for presentation instantly as this was really good!

It visually looked really good, the front flap was magnetic and the inside looked just as good as the outside.

The Drinks

The guys set me a challenge to try this for 6 days and to see if I felt any benefits from drinking this, and I accepted as I am always up for a wee challenge.

As you can see I got 2x 3 flavours they were

  • Watermelon & Mint
  • Pomegranate
  • Passion Fruit

When I saw the flavours I was a little bit hesitant as I am not watermelon fan, but I always try anything that is sent to me.

Due to this the Watermelon & mint was the first one I tried.

My plan was to have this in place of my morning drink with breakfast, and see how I feel over the course of the day.

I took a small sip expecting it to be just hmm but actually the balance of the mint with the watermelon made it very palatable for me and gave me a nice flavour.

These drinks are carbonated but not a lot, so you get a nice gentle bubble effect while drinking and it really is very pleasant.

Next was the Pomegranate and then the next day was the Passion Fruit.

All of the flavours were very nice to drink, they were not strong flavours but also not subtle just a nice easy to drink flavour.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Overall :

Firstly I would like to send a big thanks to the guys for sending me this, and challenging me to try it for a week.

As you read, I was very surprised that the flavours were really nice, and I even liked the watermelon one as the mint just balanced out the flavour very well.

Personally I don’t think one week is long enough to feel any health benefits, maybe a month would have been better but its a great substitute for say your morning coffee or energy drink.

I could easily see myself continuing with this, as I was very pleasantly surprised how nice they were and easy to drink.

Check them out and let me know what you think
