I received a sample of a new(ish) soft drink called Zeo recently. Unfortunately it has leaked all over my shopping and made everything sticky, but there was still about half the bottle left so I decided to try it.
The main reason for trying it was the bottle was pretty stylish to the point where you could imagine months being spent on getting the shape just right.
Zeo is advertised as a Russian product, which means it has Russian money backing it but isn’t particularly traditionally Russian as far as I can recall (it’s been a while and I may be supressing the memories of my time there).
It is aimed at adults and priced to match; it seems to be around £4.29 for 4 bottles from a nameless supermarket. Zeo is low calorie (under 60 calories per bottle) and has no artificial ingredients – instead it is made up for 32 herbs and comes in some random flavours.
For example Peach & grapefruit and blood orange & citrus. I can’t remember which one of the two painted my shopping, it was something citrus-based, it was a mild flavour at the time with a funny aftertaste and a weird tingle that was rather off-putting.
It seemed like the bottle was the focus of their time and research, the drink itself was merely something to justify the bottle!
