My Review of the Augason Farms Peach Delight Drink Mix
By Jason Wagner
I’ve been happy all of the Augason Farms drink mixes I’ve reviewed so far, so I knew Augason Farms Peach Delight Drink Mix would be at least good.
Taste – 9.0/10: A 9.0 because, it actually tastes like a glass of freshly squeezed, albeit slightly sweetened, peach juice!
Texture – 8.5/10: The texture is certainly of the pleasing variety. It’s similar to the Augason Farms Apple Delight mix, but a tad less thick. Smooth and easy going down the hatch, this is some good stuff.
Nutrition – 5.0/10: Like all the other drink mixes of this type that I’ve reviewed, this one’s got plenty of vitamin C per cup, but it’s also got plenty of nothing else, save for the sugary calories. This wasn’t designed as a multi-vitamin, but as a drink to add energizing calories to a meal, and to provide a sense of warm nostalgia in an emergency situation.
Man-Portability – 4.0/10: As Augason Farms Peach Delight Drink Mix comes in cans, these are less than ideal for carrying around. If you throw a can in your kit, you’ll probably have to sacrifice ammo, medical supplies, and other food. This survival food product is ideal for emergency situations when you can bug in.
OpSec – 9.5/10: There are no real concerns here. If someone spots you, it probably isn’t the fault of this product.
Bulk/Weight – 9.0/10: It stores very nicely on shelves, in corners, in any static location, really.
Filling Factor – 5.0/10: It’s a mixed sugary drink, so I wouldn’t expect this to satiate a hungry stomach. I’ve given this a 5.0 for a rather basic reason – when paired with a (relative to your portions) small meal that wouldn’t otherwise fill you, depending on the amount of the peach delight that you drink, you’ll feel satiated.
Final Review – 9.0/10: I view all of the Augason Farms canned drink mixes in pretty much the same positive light, which is the say, they’re all very delicious, just in different flavors and slightly varied textures.
Tip: If you’re heading into the field and would like this, without the burden of the can, I’d suggest you dispense some of the powder into a re-sealable bag.
