Waking up early and leaving for school wearing a jumper skirt uniform... Oh, I can still remember my elementary years like yesterday! I'd also bring my lunchbox which of course had my favorite treats -- Pacencia, Oreo, Roller Coaster, Moo and Zesto. And no, it's not just my age pushing me to walk down the memory lane. If I have to put the blame on someone or something, then I blame Zesto's new product, Zest-O SLICE!
Zesto has played an important part in my childhood. Aside from being a mainstay in my everyday baon, I can still clearly remember those times when I'd drink Zesto upside down, as well as those momentous instances when I'd successfully stick the straw to the white dot of the doypack. Now that I'm older though, Zesto still plays a part in my journey to adulthood but as Zest-O SLICE -- 355ml bottle of thirst-quenching goodness that comes in four different flavors, and costs only about P18 each. Every bottle is also a good source of Vitamin A, C, E and Zinc that help boost the immune system.
First among Zest-O SLICE's flavors is the classic orange that I, and probably most of you too, have grown to love as a kid. Although it doesn't taste as citrus-y as real orange, it doesn't taste too artificial as well. But my most favorite part about the classic Zesto orange is its sweetness level. It's not bland, but not as sweet as sugar. It doesn't stick to the throat too, making it a light and refreshing beverage when drank chilled or iced.

Another straight fruit flavor is Zest-O SLICE in dalandan, which like the orange, has been formulated basing on Zesto's 30 years of experience in providing quality fruit juices. Every sip gives off a refreshing citrus-y hint. It's light on the palate and doesn't sting, so both adults and kids will love this. I for one, found this the most fitting for summer.

Aside from coming in two straight fruit flavors, Zest-O SLICE also carries mixed fruit flavors. The first of which is grapple, a light and refreshing blend of grapes and apple -- two of my favorite fruit flavors in juices. And while I love grapes and apple as two separate flavors, I can't deny that I loved this grapple combination even more! It's subtly sweet, with the grapes taking the spotlight and the apple providing perfect harmony.

The other mixed fruit flavor is mango burst which is an exciting blend of mango and strawberry. Compared to all the flavors, this one is slightly sweeter. This is my most favorite in the lot too. The mango provides a comforting sweetness, while the strawberry gives every sip a twist. While all the other flavors are refreshing, thirst-quenching and really good, I think this is the one I'll grab from the grocery shelves again and again.

From doypack to bottle, from straight flavors to mixed fruit flavors... Zesto has really brought up their game with the introduction of Zest-O SLICE. And while I'm still in love with the nostalgia my doypacked Zesto-sipping childhood brings, I sure am ready to move on to the more exciting Zest-O SLICE.
How about you, have you tried Zest-O SLICE? What's your favorite flavor?
