Comments: I bought two bottles of FUZE Slenderize from my local Albertson’s for $1.59 (US) each. Each 18.5 oz bottle holds approx. 2 servings, but like most bottled beverages, there didn’t seem to be much point to dividing them up, especially since they’re so low in cals/carbs overall.
The Tangerine Grapefruit was a little disappointing: I like both flavors, but neither really came through…it was mildly sweet (good), but the citrus flavor was weak and underwhelming. The Blueberry Raspberry was better – about the same sweetness level, but with a more pronounced berry flavor.
Each bottle is fortified with a substantial amount of Vitamin C, as well as three nutraceutical compounds frequently found in fat loss supplements: chromium, L-carnitine, and Super Citrimax (a proprietary Garcinia cambogia extract that’s a source of HCA). These are overrated and/or underdosed…so are pretty meaningless if you’re looking for a fat loss boost.
Overall, Fuze Slenderize is a pleasant-tasting, low carb/sugar drink that’s a good source of Vitamin C and chromium – there’s not much more to it than that, but then again, for me, that would be quite good enough…in general, if I wanted to take either Super Citrimax or L-carnitine, there are more reliable and more cost-effective ways to manage that.
