- Combats premature aging
- Helps increase energy levels and helps bloster the immune system
- Improves mental clarity
- Helps clean and detoxify the body
- This ancient Amazon Secret can help boost energy, stamina, and vitality, and also promotes healthy living
- An acquired taste, to be sure...
"O.N.E. Amazon Acai" drink beverage isn't just cursed with a crap name: imagine a vaguely berry-flavored prune juice cocktail, replete with a texture of watered-down cough syrup.
If that's your cup of tea, then bon app®¶tit, as O.N.E. Amazon Acai is most definitely an acquired taste... but one I'll be taking a pass on in the future.
It is relatively healthy for you, hence the two stars....more info
- The Best Acai ever!!!!
Acai Berry may be one of the healthiest foods on the planet. The acai berry is one of the world's most interesting and unique foods. It may also be one of its healthiest. Chock-full of antioxidants, amino acids, AND essential fatty acids, the tiny little acai berry packs a nutritional wallop rarely seen in the natural world. In fact, some experts consider it to be the world's most "complete" natural food.
As a Brazilian I may say that it is the only juice that tastes like the fresh acai berry, it is wonderful!!!!
The Acai contains 33 times the cholesterol fighting anthocyanin than a glass of red wine and it may also provides several cardiovascular health benefits, that is why I drink it every single day after working out.
O.N.E.'s acai berry juice is the best on the shelves or online, it is made from fresh acai fruit grown wildly in the middle of the Amazon Rainforest, so it is like tasting the berry directly from the tree, again, it is really amazing how this O.N.E.'s juice tastes exactly like the berries.
I've tasted all the brands available and O.N.E.'s Amazon Acai is really the one that not tastes artificially.
It is great!!!!
- I'm glad to have stepped outside the box with this beverage
I honestly thought that I wasn't going to like the taste, and honestly, I'm still warming up to this drink after a month of drinking this. It's bearable and I like what benefits that come with it. If it wasn't so gritty and more smooth, I think I'll drink the acai like it's water. ...more info
- Refreshing, healthy, unique taste
It is nice to discover a new refreshing truly different beverage that is also potentially healthy. I started out looking for Pomegranate juice for its purported antioxidant benefit, and stumbled over this Acai Drink. As noted elsewhere, the straw pictured on the package is just a suggested utensil... as the beverage container does not actually come with a straw. Well-refrigerated, and consumed with a straw, this beverage taken every few days will be a small pleasure for you....more info
- Sickening Sweet Overwhelms the Sour Fruit.
O.N.E. Amazon Acai is an all-natural fruit drink made from the berries of the Acai palm, known for their high antioxidant and Omega fatty acid content and a popular ingredient in many Brazilian fruit concoctions. This drink is a simple blend of acai, acerola, organic evaporated can juice (like Sucanat or Florida Crystals), and citric acid. An 11-ounce single serving TetraPak packs quite a concentration of vitamin C (99 mg), vitamin E, anthocyanins, and ellagic acid, all antioxidants, as well as Omega 6 (340 mg), Omega 9 (1700 mg), and Omega 3 (33 mg) fatty acids. So it's a little immune booster, in spite of its muddy opaque reddish-brown appearance.
Too bad it doesn't taste good. The acai has that distinctive flavor of tropical fruit, and I can make out the cherry (acerola) if I try. But the drink has a nondescript sour tropical fruit flavor that is overwhelmed by sugar. The first and last thing I taste is sickening sweet sugar, in this case in the form of evaporated cane juice but no less sweet. The fruit takes a back seat. I'm sure the excessive sugar is intended to combat the sourness of the acai and acerola. Well, I like acerola, and I can't tell what acai really tastes like. But I'm sensitive to sweet things, and this drink made me nauseated. The smell is off-putting as well. I did find it palatable cut with seltzer and lime. ...more info
- Best one in the market!
I have tried other brands such as Sambazon, Zola and Bossa Nova. I like Bossa Nova out of the three since it is lighter in texture but I must say it does taste watered down so I'm not too sure if I'm getting the full benefits. Number one choice though is O.N.E! I like the combination of the acerola cherry and acai. It does have a slight chocolatey flavor to it but its very minute. Some people are concerned about the sugar but as you know fructose is the main form of sugar in here. And fructose is easily digested by the body unlike other artificial sweeteners. So I say drink up!...more info
- Exotic Taste & Packed with Real Nutrition
There are a lot of hyped drinks on the market, made from exotic fruits or berries with purported health benefits. I have found that some of my patients notice a health benefit from them, and some do not. But cutting through the hype, there is some solid scientific research on the health benefits of naturally derived antioxidants, vitamin C, fiber, and omega fatty acids. This drink has high amounts of all these important nutrients. It's hard to put into words the taste, but I liked it, it was different, exotic. If you want to try a health-boosting drink, I think this would be a prime choice....more info
- Not just another juice box
As far as hard to pronounce juice flavors go, I didn't know what to expect. I remember reading a magazine article announcing that the new hot flavor hitting the market was this thing called Acai. I figured, how different could it be? Well, it's different. If you're growing tired of the same old cherry, grape, apple, (yawn yawn) ... you might want to give this a try. It's substantial, almost like a smoothie, though certainly not as thick as a smoothie. The flavor is something not quite citrus, but definitely full of fruity flavor. It isn't overly sweet either. Overall, a very pleasant drink in an easy to open juice box....more info
- I would not drink another O.N.E.
I love trying new things, and I adore fruit-flavored anything, so when I saw the Amazon Aca®™ flavor of O.N.E., I couldn't resist. The flavor was enticing, and the description of the beverage was certainly appealing: "This ancient Amazon Secret boosts energy, stamina and vitality, combats premature aging and helps clean and detoxify the body."
Well, who wouldn't want a refreshing drink that can do all that? When it arrived, I noted that the container advises this drink is best chilled, and so I held off from my taste test, putting it in the refrigerator for several hours.
On a side note, I found the packaging interesting. From the photos, I had expected a standard can, but what it actually arrived in is a soft side container shaped and sized like a can, but it feels more like a juice box. I admired what seems to be an effort to save the environment by utilizing as much bio-degradable material as possible in the packaging.
Finally, the moment came when I felt my O.N.E. Amazon Aca®™ had chilled sufficiently and I was ready for my first sip. With great anticipation, I opened the container, and inserted a straw.
I was very glad my first sip was only that - a sip. I was not pleased with the flavor. But I persevered, drinking a third of the beverage before finally abandoning it, hoping that perhaps it is one of those tastes that you must `get used to' before you actually enjoy it.
I just couldn't do it. It tasted like I was drinking a fruit concentrate that needed diluting. I heartily enjoy fresh-squeezed juices, but this was just far too strong a flavor.
Not only that, but in addition to the Aca®™ juice I knew was in this drink, there is something called `Acerola', which the manufacturer describes as `Amazon Cherry'. While I enjoy fresh cherries and cherry flavored food items, apparently I am not fond of cherry juice - at least not Acerola.
It is with sadness I report that I would not drink another of the O.N.E. Amazon Aca®™ beverages. I had looked forward to a new taste experience that may have the added benefit of improving my health through antioxidants, vitamin C, and other vitamins and minerals that One World Enterprises infuses these drinks with....more info
- Tastes good but contains quite an amount of sugar.
What's beyond the good taste? Let's see. There are four ingredients in this product: 100% natural acai, 100% natural acerola, organic evaporated cane juice and citric acid. While I did not even know what "acai" and "acerola" were before reading the product description, I do know what "evaporated cane juice" is. While it may have enhanced the taste a bit, it also contributes to the sugar content (29g per container). It's up to you to decide whether you're willing to ingest this much sugar for a mere 11 oz. juice product. ...more info
- No too bad - but there are better ones
this is one of the stronger acai drinks that i have had out on the market. i would describe the taste as an earthy, berrylike flavor. Warning - this drink does have a little more solids than others, hence its unappealing color. This is supposed to give more antioxidant oompf. Some people may find the gritty feel a turn-off....more info
- Best when chilled
O.N.E. Amazon Acai drink is one of the most unique and exotic fruity flavored beverages I have experienced. Despite being 100 % naturally, ingredients derived from the Amazon forest, and antioxidants rich in Omega and Amino Acids, the taste may not appeal to everyone; the taste is slightly syrupy and berry. However, the packaging looks desirable and is small enough to carry around for a quick sip, but make sure you chill the box first or add plenty of ice before drinking and have a straw handy....more info
- My husband thought it was 'okay' I was glad to have just one!
There are many health benefits to this drink. I cannot attest to anything longstanding as we were offered one 11 ounce container to sample. Based on the taste, this household would be looking for another flavor.
My husband thought it was 'okay' and gave it a 2.5. He ended up drinking the bulk of the drink.
I tasted the drink and could barely get past the first sip. Both taste and texture did not appeal to me. The taste left me at a 1. Despite the drink's healthy qualities, I will be seeking something more palatable even if it's less healthy.

- Gagged me it was so incredibly revolting! BLECH
I have had other Acai drinks so it's not the taste of Acai that I find revolting - just this stuff. it's thick, kinda gloppy and has a nasty vinegary aftertaste. I tried filtering it through a gold coffee filter to get rid of the sediments and that helped the texture but didn't do much to improve the taste. Ultimately, the only way I was able to drink this stuff and not waste it was to mix it with some apple juice or grape juice. The best way to explain the taste is to compare it to the juice you get when you press wine grapes. Wine grapes aren't very sweet and when you press them, you get a thick, sourish juice. That's similar to this crap. Maybe you could put some of this into a smoothie with a banana but I think you might be wasting a good banana. My best advice is to try this before you buy a whole case of it. maybe you'll like it and think I'm wrong. If you do, great! But if, like me, you find the product is simply ghastly, you'll have saved some money....more info
- You Cannot Judge This Drink From Its Container
This little drink comes in a beautiful container. The acai berry looks like blueberries with a touch of red; there is a nice rosy background. We are told that this amazing drink is 100% natural, is rich in antioxidants, rich in Omega 3,6 and 9, Amino Acids, Vitamin B and E, and Ellagic Acid. This concoction that comes from the Amazon Rainforest has a dash of Acerola (Amazon Cherry) that supposedly has more Vitamin C than an orange. This "ancient Amazon Secret boosts energy, stamina and vitality, combats premature aging and helps clean and detoxify the body."
So I was ready to have my life completely turned around and wondered if the Obama campaign serves this magic drink to its large crowds of fans. I followed the instructions on the container that suggested that this drink is better served cold and put it in the refrigerator. I ignored the information that I'll be getting 157 calories in this one drink; after all, I'm getting 165% of my daily Vitamin C requirements.
The drink, for starters, is an ugly shade of brown. But I suppose adding red dye number three would be inappropriate in something that is allegedly so healthy. It doesn't go down terribly easy either. I cannot imagine drinking it at room temperature.
I googled the Amazon Acai Berry and learn that it comes from the acai palm from which we get hearts of palm that show up in upwardly mobile salads. Okay. Then I read the testimonials. This little berry prevents seizures, moves both bowels and arthritic fingers, removes warts, clears the skin, is good for the treatment of diabetes and leumekia and heart aiments as well as having the same effect as Viagra.
I am not sure how much of this drink you must ingest before you are a new creature in Amazon Acai and how you can prove its healthy effects, but these are some strong testimonials. On the other hand, that freshly-squeezed Florida orange juice in my frige is looking better and better. ...more info
- Definitely Not As Good as Bossa Nova
I do agree with some of the other reviews of this beverage. Acai juice with agave (to sweeten) is very nice in flavor, but since this brand adds the acerola juice, I think this definitely changes the flavor. It's not bad, and I agree that it tastes kind of medicine-like, but I would not buy it again. I love the Bossa Nova original acai flavor (purple). It is sweet, yet has the lowest sugar and calories of any of the acai juice beverages on the market. I would highly recommend the Bossa Nova brand!!!
- Outrageous shipping charges
I researched your site for the best Acai berry juice and ended up choosing this one I have been drinking it for about 3 months now. When I went to order it again for this month they have added a shipping charge of 17.99 I had been receiving supers saver free shipping on this why has this changed for this product? The shipping charge is almost the same price you are charging for the drink. Sad to say I will now have to look else where for a new Acai berry drink where they don't charge outrageous shipping fees.
Very Disappointed in your change...more info
- Not what I expected. Not terrible, but wouldn't buy it again.
Not what I expected, but it wasn't necessarily terrible. It tasted mildly like prune (with a hint of berry) and the texture much the same as prune juice. I would not buy it again, but what I bought most likely won't go to waste. I am in no hurry to drink the other 11 in the case, but I have approx. 2 months before they expire. If you want it for the health benefits, it is drinkable, just would not be my first choice....more info
- Delicious Acai drink
This is a delicious beverage - Acai is a sweet, tasty Amazon berry and it is combined here with Acerola cherry (high in vitamin c) and organic evaporated cane juice for extra sweetness. I personally find the added sweetener to be extra carbs that I could do without, though I find that other similar Acai drinks contain agave nectar or some added natural sweetener, so people must crave the extra sugar. The O.N.E. drink comes in a handy lunch pak type container (punch a hole in it with your straw). Although I liked this item I still prefer Sambazon or Bossanova's Acai drinks in the plastic or glass bottles. If you like a nutritious, sweet fruit beverage, the O.N.E. Amazon Acai drink is worth trying....more info
- Tastes like chalky cold medicine
Unfortunately I did not care for this product at all. The drink has a thick chalky texture and the taste reminded us of cold medicine. In addition, there was a very strong and unpleasant aftertaste. The packaging really was beautiful and it may be really good for you and it's a good source of fiber, but I couldn't get past the taste....more info
- Horrible taste.
I've just went to Whole Foods and grabbed several different brands of acai juice. This o.n.e. brand so far has been the worst tasting acai juice I have ever tried. My best recommendation is to head to Ralphs or Whole Foods and grab the Bossa Nova acai juice which in my opinion is the best tasting acai juice (not to mention the most pure/not from concentrate juice/no added cane juice). Stay away from this one....more info
- Great and Healthy!
I tried this product when I had a cold and it helped me get better sooner! I highly recommend this product. It is not only very healthy for you but it tastes great! I wish however that it was a bit cheaper......more info
- Unique taste, cherry-like and sweet, but don't look at it
This drink had an interesting flavor. It was cherry-like, but also fruity and sweet. Just don't look at it. If you pour it into a glass, it looks like muddy water. I had expected it to look like cranberry juice, and the outside appearance would lend you to expect it so. However, the taste was pretty good, and I thought you got a lot out of it because it was a thicker juice than a clear cranberry would be. Lots of antioxidants and vitamins to remind yourself why it is so high priced....more info
- Very Good
Acai is all the rage right. Its popularity is steadily growing and will soon hit fad-proportions.
That said, it is a very good beverage that I find myself craving. At first, the taste is ok. It is not revolting and does not make you gag, as some seem to imply. It is very much like a melted chocolate snoball in flavor. The colder you make it the better it tastes.
I drink it right after a workout. I find that this brand is the least expensive and most convenient as well. I would like to see the percentage of Acai vs Cherry juice on the label. It is not provided. It only says that it contains a "splash" of cherry.
I like it. I would call it an acquired taste that you can quickly acquire....more info
- Pepped me up
Acai is the newest health craze. Science may debate how effective it is as an antioxidant, but the bottom line is, I feel cleansed when I drink it. I've had MonaVie, which is potent and excellent. However, this drink is lighter, fruitier, and easier in digestion, most likely thanks to the coconut water.
I enjoyed it so much I drank it slowly, and it kept its freshness and taste in the fridge over a couple days. My nephew wanted to try it, was told he might not like it, tried it, and gave it the thumbs-up. There you have it! This is a kid-pleaser and an adult-pleaser. It gave me a boost of energy and helped me through a nasty stomach bug....more info
- ONE SKIMPY SAMPLE FOR REVIEW
I was looking forward to reviewing this product as part of Amazon Vine's review team, but I only received one small, dented, cardboard encased 11 oz unit.
O.N.E Amazon (no relationship to Amazon.com) Acal is said to be "naturally" grown in the Amazon. Does that mean "organic"? It is also said to be very high in Vitamins B, E, omega 3, 6 & 9, Minerals (and I assume some trace elements if grown naturally), Ellagic acid and antioxidants. I don't know how to test that but if true that is excellent for the maintenance of all kinds of bodily systems.
I suppose that one would have to drink a half gallon a day to get minimal benefits. And not the skimpy 11 oz sample.
The taste is OK. And for serious drinkers, I imagine it would make a nice addition to a chilled, tropical mixed drink whether you have a decorative umbrella or not....more info
- Tasty chilled
Acai is new to the North American palette. You may not be familiar with the flavor. I have had canned Acai drinks and have found them revolting. I chilled this in the fridge, and then tasted it. It was really, really good. It tastes fresh and does not have an odd aftertaste like canned beverages that have acai. I did not think I would ever drink acai after my previous journeys....but this one was good and I would buy it again for the health benefits. This is probably the only brand I would buy....more info
- Not the One
I have tried other O.N.E. products and have been more satisfied with the taste. I decided to give this one a try basically because I have never had Acai before. The smell is a little off and the coloring in a clear glass is a bit off, looking like chocolate milk. The taste is interesting. It was certainly different. It is not bad, but it is something you would have to acquire the taste for. Sadly at nearly $2 for 11 onces of the product, I won't be investing money to acquire this taste....more info
- Formula doesn't quite work for my palate
I chilled the drink for six hours before consuming ('best served well chilled' it said). Although the packaging shows a flexi-straw like those included with kid's drink boxes, my sample did not come with one so I poured it over ice.
The juice is a brownish-red (think an overly worchestershired Bloody Mary)and has body, I mean it's thick. Not syrupy, more like orange/banana juice or apricot nectar. Each serving provides 13% of your daily fiber, possibly explaining the body.
Giving the juice a sniff I hit my first obstacle. The acerola reminds me (quite unpleasantly) of cherry cough syrup. My girlfriend would love it but I found it quite a turn off.
Taking my first sip, the aroma and full mouthfeel gave my cough syrup flashback. Not a good start. I wish I had a straw.
Deciding to try not inhaling as I sipped worked much better. The cherry didn't carry over to the taste much and I was greeted with a full bodied, sweet, fruity mouthful. The acai flavor is hard to describe, the closest I can come is pitted fruit (plum/apricot??) but there is so much sugar added (in the form of evaporated cane juice) that the true fruitiness is covered up. There is a lot of sugar in this stuff, 29g/box, not quite the level of soda pop but not too far either. Bypassing the acerola, by either using a straw or not inhaling while drinking, the overall flavor isn't bad, one that might grow on me.
A lot of health claims are made about acai (alertness, stamina, etc), only trying a single box, I cannot attest to any long term benefit, alertness/energy could certanly come from all the sugar. It claims high levels of antioxidants and Omegas, but at over two dollars a serving, it's not an economical method of obtaining those nutriants.
Overall, to satisfy MY palate, O.N.E. should drop the acerola, and decrease the added sugar to make this a product I would consider purchasing. As always, taste is very personal and you might find that this works very well for you, but the current formula doesn't quite work for my palate....more info
- Interesting taste, I like it
I wanted to taste it just because I like to taste new stuff, and because it is claimed to be "superfood". I liked the taste and now I drink this one or Zola Acai nearly every day, just because I like the taste and because it's conveniently delivered to me by Amazon's subscription.
I buy tons of stuff on Amazon and rarely write reviews, but I remember when I first open this web-page I hesitated to buy, because there were a lot of negative reviews. I finally bought it out of curiosity, and was prepared for something awful. It turned out to be one of my favorite drinks. So I thought it would be fair for the product if I write a review.
I gave it to other people to taste, and most people liked it. Like with any food, there are personal preferences. Some people drink coffee, some don't. So my advice is - ignore any review (positive and negative). If you want to taste it, taste it.
P.S. I'm not telling that Acai juice is any better than let's say blueberry juice. It's just that I like variety, and that Amazon delivers this one to me. I would enjoy Amazon having more natural berry juices available for delivery. ...more info
- awful stuff
Although I've never had Acai by itself I figured this would be a good way to start. After all, Organic, fresh. If this is it I'm going back to sugar based juices. I wish I had read the reviews. The smell and taste reminded me of fermented or sour juice. I thought I got a bad shipment so I figured I would check out previous reviews. They all pretty much agree with my accessment. I'm going to try mixing it with vodka or gin or maybe dilute it with some Ocean Spray to try to finish it off. If it's this bad having good health I'm off to buy a juicy, med-rare bacon cheeseburger and wash it down w/a diet pepsi....more info
- Not quite there
Like many health-conscious consumers, I have heard time and again about the benefits of the acai fruit. However I haven't managed to include it in my diet or supplement program on a regular basis because... well, plainly stated, it tastes pretty bad. It tastes somewhat like mud, but with a slightly sour taste. That said, I am always open to trying it in combination with other things that may mask the flavor - I do the same with other superfoods and it works out great.
So I was excited to get to try a new acai-based product... but I was disappointed. The drink is sweet, and the cherry flavor comes first, but the muddy taste of the acai still comes through pretty strong, and it ruins it. If you don't shake it, the acai will settle at the bottom somewhat and the flavor will be more pleasant, but then what's the point? You might as well go get yourself a glass of juice.
It's a noble effort from O.N.E., but I don't think this is the right medium to mask the acai or make its taste more pleasant. I think a smoothie might work better....more info
