Charlotte Cox

Five drinks available in the cafeteria store. All these are available for purchase during your designated lunch.

Envy fruit punch (blue):  $2.50  ★★★★☆

This drink is a really good mid-day drink if you forgot your water bottle or if you ran out of your drink. This drink is 100% fruit juice and has no caffeine, so it is similar to an IZZE. Since it has no caffeine, it wouldn’t be the best pick-me-up drink, but if you are looking for something caffeine free this is the one for you. This drink does actually taste like fruit punch and isn’t super carbonated. It has more of a light bubbly feel. The price is a little high, but every once in a while I’ll get one just to have something tasty. If you like IZZE drinks, this is the perfect school drink for you.

Envy strawberry kiwi (pink): $2.50 ★★☆☆☆

I don’t really like strawberry kiwi flavor, so this is not the drink for me. With that being said, I do think it tastes as advertised. Since it is 100% fruit juice, it is a healthier alternative to some other drinks offered. I would recommend this to someone who does not want a large or caffeinated beverage and wants something more natural. If you like strawberry kiwi you will definitely like this drink.

Sparkling ICE pink grapefruit:  $1.75  ★★★☆☆

This drink is really refreshing and has a grapefruit flavor without being super bitter. This drink tastes really artificially sweetened to me. It is zero sugar, so that makes sense but it’s not my favorite taste. The good thing with this drink is that they have a whole lot of flavors available, so if you try one and don’t like it there are many other options. I would recommend this drink if you don’t want something caffeinated. It’s also the cheapest drink available besides water. If you are looking for something refreshing and zero sugar, this is definitely a good option.

Mtn dew kickstart orange citrus: $2.50  ★★★★☆

This citrus drink has 69 milligrams of caffeine and it’s only 12 ounces, making it a really good afternoon pick-me-up. It definitely tastes a little artificial, even though it is not a sugar free drink. It also does not have much flavor. This drink is definitely one of my top choices for caffeinated drinks that is offered in the cafeteria. I would recommend this to someone who wants something with caffeine but not something super large. 

ICE + Caffeine cherry vanilla $3.00: ★★★☆☆

This drink is pretty good. If you are wanting something like normal soda, this is the drink for you. This is the only drink that you can buy in the lunch room that tastes like normal soda. It has a Cherry Coke flavor and whilst it is a little artificial, it is understandable because it is a zero sugar beverage. I would recommend this drink for a good afternoon pick-me-up, as it does have 70 milligrams of caffeine and it is 16 ounces.
