Kona Tropical PunchKona Tropical Punch Takes You Back to your Childhood

Tropical Punch is a childhood favorite for a reason — it is delicious. As we grow older, we become more reluctant to drink tropical punch; after all, it is for kids. The Kona Tropical Punch breaks this barrier and opens up a whole new tropical world for adults. This punch-inspired hard seltzer takes you back to your childhood days and allows you to enjoy a nice sweet taste, except this time it is spiked with alcohol. Despite the sweet taste, you can also take solace in the fact that there are 0 grams of sugar and only 100 calories per can. Now, let us dive into our review of Kona Tropical Punch. 

Taste Tropical Punch with Every Sip

Kona makes their Tropical Punch hard seltzer with carbonated filtered water, organic cane sugar, and natural flavors. Kona Tropical Punch also contains only 2 grams of carbs. This hard seltzer has good carbonation that gives it a similar taste to a cherry-flavored soft drink. There is a stronger alcohol taste than you might expect with a low-alcohol seltzer, but the tropical punch flavor combined with the carbonation are still driving forces behind the flavor explosion that this seltzer provides. 

Light on Alcohol, Heavy on Flavor

The alcohol by volume (ABV) for this hard seltzer is 5%. This gives it a light alcohol experience that is just enough to help you relax. Despite the low alcohol content, you can taste the alcohol with each sip more than you can with other popular hard seltzers. However, the flavor is still great overall. You can expect a fruit delight with pineapple, orange, cherry, grape, and tangerine natural flavors. It is also fizzy due to the carbonation, which helps the heavy flavor go down smoothly. Overall, it is a refreshing seltzer that we recommend for all types of occasions, especially those that are outdoors on a warm day. 

A Good Choice for Tropical Punch Lovers

We enjoyed Kona Tropical Punch. We love the idea behind a tropical punch-flavored seltzer. What is more interesting is that there is no added sugar as well. It can be difficult to create the ideal level of sweetness for tropical punch with 0 grams of sugar. Although it is not as sweet as an original punch drink, it is surprisingly sweet and tasty, given the low sugar content. You can also enjoy a nice cherry fruity aroma. In summary, those who love (and miss) drinking a delicious fruit punch drink should enjoy this beverage. It provides a perfect mix of childhood nostalgia and an adult alcohol kick. All that, without being too boozy.

Hot tip: prepare a bucket of ice, and serve Kona Spiked Island Seltzer Tropical Punch chilled. You’ll want your guests to enjoy the beautiful art on the can, but if you’d prefer, pour this drink over ice.
