Best Cirkul Flavors: All Flavors Of Cirkul Sips Ranked

Not sure which flavors of Cirkul Sips to try?

We have tried every flavor of Cirkul Sips and are here to tell you which ones we think are the best Cirkul flavors, along with what we like or don’t like about each one. For those that don’t know much about Cirkul, we have a little information first and a discount for you! If you prefer to get right to the worst and best Cirkul flavors, you can scroll down to the Cirkul flavors list and rankings or check out the video playing at the side.

What is Cirkul?

Cirkul is a fun, new way to flavor and enjoy your water! Their flavor cartridges, or Sips, allow you to dial the amount of flavor you want with every sip of water.

If you are in a plain water mood, you can set it to the x setting and take a drink. Then, when you decide you want more flavor, it’s as simple as changing the setting to suit your tastes from 1 to 10. 1 adds just a tiny hint of flavor and it gradually steps up to 10, which is almost straight flavoring.

They have 11 different lines of Sips to suit the individual needs and tastes of their consumers.

  • LifeSips – For those who want added B-vitamins for health and energy
  • FitSips – Contain electrolytes for extra hydration
  • GoSips – Add a kick of caffeine to your flavored water
  • Gateway Tea (formerly TeaSips) – Tea-infused flavors
  • Fission Premium Body Fuel – Energy drink-style flavors with a mix of caffeine, BCAAs, adaptogens, and antioxidants
  • Flyte Electrolyte Fuel – Boast 4x the electrolytes compared to standard sports drinks
  • Squeeze Lemonade – A variety of bold flavors that blend together fruit and lemonade
  • Stage Hydration – Stevia-sweetened flavors with electrolytes for optimal hydration and performance
  • Verda – Simple flavors sweetened with stevia
  • Frosted (formerly BrewSips) – Iced coffee flavor cartridges
  • Puressence (formerly PureSips) – Contains natural fruit extracts and no sweeteners

There is no mixing or mess, and you can change the flavor intensity with each sip! Each cartridge will flavor about six 22-ounce bottles (132 fluid ounces).

Cirkul Sips work with Cirkul’s lids and bottles, but you can also use the lids and Sips with most standard wide-mouth water bottles, such as Hydroflask, Bubba, some types of Simple Modern bottles, and more. As long as the Cirkul lid will screw onto the bottle, you can use it.

Where To Buy Cirkul Water Bottles And Sips

You can buy the Sips, lids, and bottles direct from Cirkul as individual products or as part of a bundle or subscription for more savings. Cirkul also has additional products that you can purchase, such as bottle sleeves, water filters, and custom-designed bottles.

Plus, if you use this link you will get $5 off your first subscription order!

Update: The Cirkul Starter Kit and a limited selection of Sip flavors are now available in stores and online through Walmart!

What are the best Cirkul flavors? That will largely depend on your individual tastes, but the following list ranking every flavor from the worst to the best should give you some ideas 🙂

Cirkul Flavor List: The Worst And The Best Cirkul Flavors

Update: Cirkul recently added several new flavors. we are currently in the process of trying them and will be sure to update this list to include all 75+ flavors.

June 10, 2023 – Added some new flavors to the rankings: Fission E.T., Flyte Last Drive, Verda Cucumber Lime, Squeeze Blueberry Lemonade, Flyte Overtime, LifeSip Orange Mango

We will start with the flavor that received the lowest combined ratings from our team, Squeeze Raspberry Lemonade.

93. Squeeze Raspberry Lemonade

squeeze raspberry lemonade cirkul cartridges

We love raspberry and most of us enjoy lemonade year-round, so it is a disappointment to be putting this at the bottom of our Cirkul flavors list. Unfortunately, Squeeze Raspberry Lemonade just does not taste good.

One reviewer described it as sour and unpleasantly bitter with no clear fruit flavor. The rest of us think this flavor tastes like cough medicine, which is a definite no-go. We recommend skipping this one in favor of other raspberry or lemonade-flavored options on this list.

92. Puressence Pear (Unsweetened) 


cirkul flavors puressence pear

One of our rankers really loves pear-flavored things and wanted to like this one. The problem is that the Puressence Pear Sip, formerly called PureSip Pear, doesn’t taste like pear or even fruit. Some label it as having a strong chemical taste, while others say it is like a heavy floral perfume.

No one in our group liked it, and it received unanimously poor ratings.

91. Squeeze Blackberry Lemonade

squeeze blackberry lemonade cirkul flavors list

Squeeze Blackberry Lemonade does not taste like blackberry or lemonade, according to the members of our crew. Everyone thought it was either bitter or extremely sour without much fruit flavor. The only reason it made it this high up on our worst and best Cirkul flavors list is that it doesn’t taste like chemicals or cough medicine.

There are other blackberry flavors and lemonade flavors that fare much better than this one!

90. Flyte Lights Out (Blackberry)

Cirkul sips blackberry

The consensus with our rankers is that this Cirkul flavor tastes like water with a generous pinch of baking soda dissolved into it and a slight hint of fruit flavor. Most of us strongly disliked it, and one lone member of our group didn’t mind it as much. According to them, it “tastes like the ocean.”

If you like saltwater or strong electrolyte replacement drinks, you might not hate this one.

89. LifeSip Lemonade


Here is yet another flavor that we expected to enjoy yet found overwhelmingly disappointing. The lemon in this is extremely strong and artificial. The sucralose doesn’t help much, unfortunately. Taste-wise, this one reminded one reviewer of “the smell of lemon air freshener with a weird sweetener aftertaste.”

One person said it wasn’t that bad and they could take it or leave it. With that, LifeSip Lemonade lands near the bottom of our list.

88. Squeeze Pink Lemonade

squeeze pink lemonade cirkul varieties

The only reason Squeeze Pink Lemonade isn’t further down on our list is because one person actually liked it and said they would consider ordering it occasionally for something different. Everyone else thought it tasted nothing like pink lemonade. The general feedback ranged from floral to sour to perfume-like.

Ultimately, we are not fans of this lemon flavor either.

87. Squeeze Watermelon Lemonade

squeeze watermelon lemonade cirkul flavor cartridge

We really wanted this new line of lemonade flavors to break the “artificial lemon” trend. The watermelon adds a touch of fresh, fruity flavor, but it does not disguise the “sweet lemon cleaner vibe.” That. plus the overwhelming sweetness, did not earn this flavor high marks with our crew.

86. Puressence Lemon (Unsweetened)

puressence lemon cirkul water flavors


Next up is Puressence Lemon. It seems like all the flavors that feature lemon have the same artificial lemon taste. Because the flavor is much lighter here than in the lemonade, it almost worked for some of us.

At a light setting of 1-3 on the flavor dial, it reminded us somewhat of lemon water. “With the availability of lemons, lemon juice, and crystallized lemon, I’m not sure why someone would want water that tastes like artificial lemon though,” said one member of our crew, summing up everyone else’s thoughts.

85. Frosted Classic Iced Coffee

Frosted Classic Iced Coffee cirkul water flavor


What could go wrong with iced coffee-flavored water? Our coffee enthusiasts were a little disappointed in what amounts to watered-down coffee. It’s not awful, but there’s nothing special about it. The Frosted Classic Iced Coffee, formerly BrewSip Classic Iced Coffee proved to be a flop with our coffee drinkers.

**Note: You will often see suggestions online to try drinking the BrewSip/Frosted flavors with milk. While they do taste better that way, Cirkul no longer supports this advice due to isolated cases of illness resulting from milk residue in the Sip going bad and growing bacteria. The bottle of milk and the Cirkul Sip must be kept refrigerated if you choose to try BrewSips/Frosted flavors and milk.

84. GoSip Berry Citrus (Limited Edition FLVRLAB Release)

GoSip Berry Citrus cirkul water bottle flavors

The members of our Food Rankers team that had the opportunity to try this limited edition flavor said it was not exactly berry or citrus. It wasn’t a bad taste, just not something they would order again. One person described it as “like a mixed berry FitSip meets GoSip orange kind of thing with maybe a hint of blackberry.” It just did not seem to go together.

83. Verda Lemon

cirkul flavors verda lemon

Oh, how we wish there was a solid lemon among the best Cirkul flavors, as we do love lemons! Unfortunately, the Verda Lemon is only a bit better than many of the lemon-based flavors below it.

Two of our rankers think this one does manage to taste more like lemon but is far too light on flavor, “like a Puressence flavor, even on a high setting.” The rest of the team still feels like this lemon flavor has an unpleasant chemical taste above setting 3 and barely any flavor below that.

82. Puressence Apple (Unsweetened)

Puressence apple cirkul cartidges


Puressence Apple smells faintly of apples and there are hints of the fruit in the taste. Without sweeteners, it doesn’t have a true apple taste though. After a few sips, we found that it started to not taste that good anymore.

If you like light fruit essences without any sweetness, it may be worth trying this one. Otherwise, there are better flavors to try out, according to our food rankers.

81. Flyte Overtime (Orange)

flyte overtime cirkul cartridges

We all agree that the Overtime flavor reminds us of an orange sports drink with a much stronger electrolyte aftertaste. If you need extra electrolytes and don’t mind the salty orange flavor, then order this one. It’s not a flavor we like but it isn’t too bad.

80. Flyte Fast Break (Strawberry Banana)

Flyte Fast Break Strawberry Banana Cirkul Cartridges

Strawberry Banana is a great, beloved flavor combination. The problem with Fast Break is the salty flavor of the electrolytes.  Salty banana with a hint of strawberry is not what we had hoped for when trying this one.

One reviewer would like to petition for a Strawberry Banana flavor without electrolytes to be available year-round. Please, Cirkul!

79. Verda Watermelon

verda watermelon cirkul cartridges

Most of the Cirkul flavors that include watermelon are pretty tasty, but this one just kind of falls flat. It is a very light, sweet flavor that most of us agree is not watermelon, although we struggle to identify what the hint of flavor is. Turning it up makes it turn from sweet to slightly bitter, possibly from the stevia sweetener.

If you can’t have the other sweeteners Cirkul uses and you really want this one, go for it. However, there are better watermelon flavors available from Cirkul, and even a nice strawberry watermelon that is sweetened with stevia.

78. GoSip Citrus Twist

GoSip Citrus Twist cirkul refills


Citrus Twist is a mix of that same odd lemon flavor and hints of lime and orange. The lime and orange are both nice, but they don’t pair well together. Then, you have the strange, artificial lemon on top of everything.

Most of us didn’t like this one. However, one person did, so it’s possible that you might like it as well.

77. Frosted Pumpkin Spice Iced Coffee

frosted pumpkin spice iced coffee cirkul water flavors


Pumpkin Spice Iced Coffee is typically a seasonal flavor for the fall and winter seasons, but Cirkul offers this frosted flavor year-round. It is their Iced coffee flavor with warm pumpkin pie spices, such as cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg.

This one tastes like a watered-down Pumpkin Spice Latte at low to medium settings and gets a lot of that spicy cinnamon flavor at settings above 7. If you are a fan of pumpkin spice flavors, you should check this one out.

76. Puressence Peach (Unsweetened)

Puressence Peach cirkul cartridges


Puressence Peach adds a hint of peach essence to your water which led to a bit of a debate, Half liked it, while the other half said that it tastes “really floral and nothing like peaches.”

If you prefer stronger or sweeter flavors, this one may not be for you as it is unsweetened. It’s not a bad flavor though.

75. Stage Hydration Blackberry Twist

stage hydration blackberry twist cirkul water flavors

Blackberry Twist is a light flavor that one of our reviewers quite liked. The rest of us found it too mild on lower settings, yet turning it up led to an “ocean-like mineral aftertaste”. That is likely the result of the added electrolytes, but we could do without that.

74. Frosted Vanilla Iced Coffee

frosted vanilla iced coffee cirkul flavors

The Frosted Vanilla Iced Coffee is rather vanilla-forward, so it is great for those that enjoy a stronger vanilla flavor with coffee notes. Those that enjoyed this one found that they had to turn the flavor up a couple of numbers higher than their usual setting.

73. BrewSip Hazelnut Iced Coffee (Seasonal)

Cirkul BrewSip Hazelnut Iced Coffee

For fans of hazelnut and coffee, this may be the flavor for you. This is also a seasonal flavor that is usually released for the fall and winter seasons, and you can definitely taste notes of hazelnut and coffee. Some of us find it pleasant, while others say it’s bitter.

If you like the other BrewSips/Frosted Cirkul flavors, this one is worth a try next time it is released.

72. LifeSip Raspberry Lemonade


LifeSip Raspberry Lemonade continues the oddly artificial lemon trend, but it has refreshingly tart raspberry notes that make it better than most of their lemon-based flavors.

There are some nicer options, but the Raspberry Lemonade LifeSip is one that you should check out if you enjoy something more tart than sweet.

71. Puressence Cucumber (Unsweetened)

puressence cucumber cirkul sip


The Cucumber Sip is a lot stronger than we expected. This proves to be a very controversial flavor among our group members. The opinions range from “strong and very refreshing” to “Yuck, it tastes like fish!,” so this seems to be one that you either really like or really don’t.

There isn’t any sweetness here, just cucumber. You can decide if that works for you!

70. LifeSip Blueberry Grape (Limited Edition FLVRLAB Release)

LifeSip Blueberry Grape Cirkul Cartridges

We like blueberry and grape, but this one is a weird combination that doesn’t really work, according the the members of our panel that got a chance to try it. The main thing they could agree on is that it’s light and sweet with some grape and a blueberry-ish aftertaste.

69. LifeSip Strawberry Kiwi

LifeSip strawberry kiwi cirkul water bottle flavor

LifeSip Strawberry Kiwi is a very light flavor, and when you turn up the dial it just gets sweeter and not more flavorful. It is a decent flavor, especially for those that prefer to add a hint of flavor and sweetness to their water.

68. Flyte Red Zone (Fruit Punch)

flyte red zone fruit punch cirkul cartridges

Wow, this one is strong! It’s very similar to the artificially flavored fruit punch sports drinks you can buy almost anywhere, only with extra salty flavor from the added electrolytes. If you enjoy that kind of fruit punch drink and need rehydration support, buy this one.

Most of us will skip this one in favor of other flavors we prefer, but it’s not bad,

67. Puressence Pineapple (Unsweetened)

puressence pineapple cirkul water flavors

This one starts off with a refreshing hint of pineapple flavor but starts to taste a bit weird and bitter for some people by mid-way through the first bottle. A few of our rankers said they would consider ordering it again, Others weren’t sure how to feel about it.

Keep in mind that this one is unsweetened, so it’s like biting into a slice of pineapple without the natural sugars – think unripe pineapple flavor. It is decent, although we would love it if Cirkul would add a sweetened pineapple flavor without coconut!

66. Squeeze Orange Lemonade

squeeze orange lemonade cirkul cartridges

The orange flavor helps disguise the odd lemon flavor, although the weird chemical flavor of the lemon is still present for most of us as an aftertaste. It’s not bad and citrus fans might like it as part of their flavor options. We wouldn’t call this lemonade though.

65. Flyte Goal Line (Lemon Lime)

flyte goal line cirkul sips

This Flyte variety is still every bit as salty-tasting as the rest of them, but the lemon lime taste and sweetness seem to disguise it just a bit. It’s not a bad flavor, but it leans toward a lemon lime sports drink flavor with at least double the salt.

If you are really dehydrated and need a serious electrolyte boost, or just enjoy the taste of electrolyte-replacement beverages, Flyte Goal Line might be one to try on your next order.

64. Flyte Rapid Fire (Strawberry Watermelon)

flyte rapid fire cirkul water flavor

Like Goal Line, this is not a bad flavor, especially if you are exercising heavily or need an oral rehydration solution. It’s just that Flyte flavors are heavy on electrolytes and the salty taste that accompanies them.

If you need electrolytes, go for it! If you are simply looking for some flavor, there are better strawberry watermelon varieties further up on our list of the best Cirkul flavors.

63. FitSip Lemon Lime 

FitSip lemon lime cirkul water bottle flavor

Here’s a different take on lemon lime. This FitSip has a pleasant taste overall that leans a little more to the lime side, which serves it well when you consider the track record of lemon flavors with our crew. Without the level of sweetness or saltiness of Goal Line, it is a fairly light flavor that is not likely to win any mega fans but would be nice to have in your rotation of flavors.

It is also sweetened with stevia instead of sucralose, making it a nice option for people with sensitivities to sucralose 🙂

62. LifeSip Coconut Pineapple

LifeSip coconut pineapple cirkul flavors

Our most devoted fan of the combination of coconut and pineapple found this one to be a bit of a letdown, stating that it doesn’t live up to its flavor name. The rest of us labeled LifeSip Coconut Pineapple as, “pineapple with a hint of something else and a sweetener aftertaste.”

It received average ratings and should be included in your flavor list if you love pineapple.

61. LifeSip Peach Mango

LifeSip peach mango cirkul refills

A very sweet flavor! Peach Mango reminds us a lot of those gummy candy peach rings. If you could dissolve those in water, you would have something very similar to the taste of LifeSip Peach Mango. Some found it a bit too sweet, even when dialing it down, but most of our reviewers gave this one a favorable review.

If you like Peach Rings, you should check this one out on your next order!

60. Flyte Shutout (Grape)

flyte shutout grape cirkul water flavors

Flyte Shutout tastes a lot like Grape Pedialyte.

It’s a solid grape flavor with a noticeable taste from the added electrolytes. This is a great flavor for kids and adults alike that need a boost of hydration. It may not be our preferred Cirkul flavor, but one reviewer said that they will buy a couple more of these just in case their family gets sick and needs the rehydration benefits.

59. LifeSip Blueberry Cranberry 

LifeSip blueberry cranberry cirkul flavors list

A little tart with just a hint of sweetness, LifeSip Blueberry Cranberry works for most of our crew. It may not be our favorite, but it is a unique blend of flavors that you don’t normally find in drinks or water enhancers. One person even put it in their top ten!

It is one of the stevia-sweetened options, and we like it.

58. LifeSip Strawberry Lemonade

LifeSip Strawberry Lemonade cirkul cartridges

Here is another flavor with stevia, only it is more sweet than tart. One reviewer could still taste the “weird, artificial lemon” in this one, but it received good ratings overall.

As one of the most successful lemonade flavors on this list, give this one a chance if you normally enjoy lemonade and lemonade-flavored things!

57. Stage Hydration Lemon Lime

stage lemon lime hydration cirkul flavors

This one is like a watered-down version of Lemon Lime Gatorade, or it can taste exactly like it if you turn the dial up high enough. It’s a solid flavor yet nothing exciting. For a little electrolyte boost, Stage lemon lime is a nice option that most of us will keep around the house.

56. Verda Clementine

verda clementine cirkul flavors list

We aren’t sure how Cirkul managed this, but our panel unanimously agrees that somehow this stevia-sweetened citrus flavor tastes less sweet than the tangerine Pureessence with no sweetener. Verda clementine does have a somewhat clementine taste but then ends with a bitter aftertaste.

If you like citrus flavors or water infused with the peels intact, this one may be worth trying. Otherwise, we suggest skipping it in favor of Cirkul’s other orange-related options that we enjoy much more!

55. Squeeze Blueberry Lemonade

squeeze blueberry lemonade cirkul water bottle flavors

This flavor gets very mixed reviews from our crew. A couple of our reviewers loved it and say it’s one of the better lemonade Cirkul flavors with very little aftertaste and a nice contrast of sweet blueberry and tart lemon. Others find that Squeeze Blueberry Lemonade has a very strange flavor to it that is not fruity at all. One suggested that it is like bad medicine, while another compared it to the taste you get when you smell something gross.

Apparently, people either love or hate this one. We recommend trying it if you like other Cirkul lemonade flavors, but start with one cartridge and see what you think!

54. Flyte Last Drive (Blue Raspberry)

flyte last drive cirkul water flavors

This Flyte variety manages to hide the taste of its electrolytes best, according to our review team. It does still have a little electrolyte flavor like most rehydration drinks, but the sweet blue raspberry flavor is strong enough to cut through some of that. Try this one if you need a rehydration solution and want to avoid most of the salty taste. Flyte Last Drive works great for kids too!


53. Puressence Raspberry (Unsweetened)

puressence raspberry cirkul catridges pic

As an unsweetened flavor with notes of tart raspberry, this Sip is sure to please raspberry fans. It did really well with our Puressence enthusiasts but fell a bit short with our reviewers that prefer the sweeter flavor options. Puressence Raspberry is perfect for raspberry lovers or those that go for tart flavors.

52. FitSip White Cherry

FitSip White Cherry cirkul flavor cartridge

White cherry has that familiar, sweet cherry candy taste many people go crazy for, according to most of our reviewers. Descriptions from our crew included “cherry Kool-Aid” and “cherry snow cone.”

The only reason FitSip White Cherry doesn’t come in higher on this list is two people said it tasted medicinal. One of our reviewers is adamant that it tastes like cherry Children’s Benadryl liquid. However, it will likely work out well for you if you are a fan of cherry-flavored drinks and sweets.

51. Squeeze Strawberry Lemonade

squeeze strawberry lemonade cirkul water bottle flavors

The Squeeze Strawberry Lemonade isn’t bad. Some members detected a sweetener aftertaste or an artificial lemon taste, but neither were as prominent here as they are in most of the lemonade flavors.

The reviewers that liked this one put it in their top ten, so if you like other lemon flavors or aren’t sensitive to the taste of alternative sweeteners, this one may be worth checking out on your next order.

50. Verda Cucumber Lime

Verda Cucumber Lime Cirkul flavor list

Most of us found this flavor refreshing, as it is a light mix of cucumber and lime. One person found it a tad bitter, either from the stevia sweetener or the lime. This one manages to avoid the odd aftertaste that we experienced with Puressence Cucumber, so that’s a plus.

Fans of cucumber water should check out Verda Cucumber Lime!

49. FitSip Cool Melon (Limited Edition FLVRLAB Release)

FitSip Cool Melon Cirkul water flavors

According to the members that had a chance to try Cool Melon, it is a refreshingly light melon flavor that they would like to revisit in the warmer weather. One of them believes it tastes more like a mild honeydew melon, which makes it unique. 

See also  Mountain Dew Thrashed Apple Flavor Review

We would love for Cirkul to re-release some of these limited-edition flavors so that more people can enjoy them!

48. Frosted Mocha Iced Coffee

frosted mocha iced coffee cirkul water flavors

The Mocha Iced Coffee Frosted Sip turns plain water into chocolate-flavored water with a hint of coffee. It’s good but not our favorite. If you seriously love chocolate, you might enjoy sipping on this one!

47. Frosted Caramel Iced Coffee

frosted caramel iced coffee cirkul flavors

Frosted Caramel Iced Coffee received much of the same feedback as its mocha-flavored counterpart. It makes water taste like caramel with coffee notes. True caramel devotees will love sipping on watered-down caramel any time they want.

We preferred other flavors, but Caramel Iced Coffee is nice as a treat.

46. FitSip Berry Lemonade (Limited Edition FLVRLAB Release)

FitSip Berry Lemonade cirkul water bottle flavors

FitSip Berry Lemonade is not exactly the most exciting flavor to have as a limited-time release, as Cirkul has plenty of berry and lemon options. Somehow, this berry lemonade option manages to outrank nearly every other one though! It may not be one of the best Cirkul flavors, but it avoids the fake lemon cleaner most of the lemon flavors seem to have.

If you like berries and lemon, check this one out before it disappears!

45. Stage Orange

Stage Orange Cirkul Flavors List

Most Stage flavors remind us of sports drinks, so it really doesn’t surprise me that everyone thinks this orange flavor tastes exactly like popular orange sports drinks when the dial is turned to 5 or 6.

If you happen to enjoy that flavor or need the added electrolytes, Stage Orange is great. Otherwise, there are other citrus Sips that provide a more natural orange taste.

44. Gateway Georgia Peach Tea

gateway georgia peach tea cirkul refills

This Peach Tea transforms your water into a refreshing iced tea that can be as strong or weak as you want. The only thing keeping this in the middle of the pack is the peach flavor. It doesn’t quite manage to taste like peach tea, and one reviewer says it has an aftertaste. Despite its flaws, it got good marks overall.

43. LifeSip Sweet Tea & Lemon

LifeSip Sweet Tea Lemon cirkul refills

This is one of the most polarizing Cirkul flavors available. People tend to either love it or hate it.

Fans of Sweet Tea and Lemon rank it highly and claim it is the “best sweet tea flavor that [they] could drink all day!” Its detractors are equally passionate, citing the “weird, almost chemical-like lemon and aftertaste” or the taste that reminds some people of “fresh-cut grass.”

It’s worth getting a Sweet Tea and Lemon Sip to try if you haven’t tried it and usually like southern sweet tea. You might just find your new favorite flavor!

42. Stage Strawberry Watermelon

stage strawberry watermelon cirkul flavors

This is a nice strawberry watermelon option for people who are looking to rehydrate with electrolytes but want to avoid the sweeteners or the salty taste of the Flyte Sips. The taste is sweet and fairly light with just a mild electrolyte aftertaste.

We like it, but if you enjoy stronger flavors, this one may not be for you. When you turn it up to a high dial setting, the taste can get noticeably bitter, likely from the stevia sweetener.

41. FitSip Tropical Blast


We all typically enjoy tropical flavors, so we could be a bit biased, but we found Tropical Blast to be a pleasant, tropical option. It is light-to-medium in intensity and feels like a hydrating escape. The only critique for this one is a couple of our group members  think it either “has a slight aftertaste” or “tastes a little salty.”

40. Fission Florida Man (Orange Citrus)

fission florida man orange citrus energy drink flavor

Florida Man has a nice, strong citrus flavor, but some of us found it too intense. One person summed it up with this description, “If you take concentrated orange juice and add a little tangerine, some sweetener, and maybe a small amount of water, you get Florida Man.”

If you like energy drinks, this one is for you. It’s strong and very sweet, plus the caffeine and other add-ins will keep you feeling energized all day long.

39. Gateway California Green Tea

gateway california green tea cirkul flavors list

This flavor received mixed ratings from our crew only because it is a true green tea flavor. The bitter, distinctive taste of green tea is either something you like or hate. Those that enjoyed it said you can make this green tea taste as strong or weak as you’d like by turning the flavor dial, which is something you can’t do with a glass of brewed green tea.

If you love green tea, then Gateway California Green Tea is a must-try! The only thing that would make this one better for green tea lovers is if Cirkul added other flavors, like peach or berry green tea.

38. GoSip Grape

GoSip Grape cirkul cartridges

Not everyone is a fan of grape-flavored things, but this is the perfect Sip for those that love Grape Kool-Aid or Grape Gatorade. Plus, it has the caffeine boost of a soda at medium settings. You can make that sweet grape flavor as strong as you like, which makes this a popular and versatile flavor.

37. BrewSip Crème Brulée Iced Coffee (Seasonal)

brewsip creme brulee iced coffee

It might sound strange, but Crème Brulée water actually works! This is a seasonal flavor for fall and winter that brings that festive caramelized sugar taste to your water bottle. While it isn’t a flavor we could enjoy every day, it is great for when you want something sweeter or festive change of pace. 

We definitely recommend grabbing at least one of these next time they are available!

36. LifeSip Mango Grapefruit 

LifeSip Mango Grapefruit cirkul water bottle flavors

This one is a medium-intensity, sweet flavor that is sweetened with stevia. Some people detect hints of grapefruit, while most of us agree that the flavor doesn’t closely resemble either mango or grapefruit. LifeSip Mango Grapefruit is a pleasantly fruity variety that most of our crew would gladly drink again. One reviewer put it in her top 3.

35. GoSip Green Apple

This is a nice, sweetened apple flavor. Most people described the flavor as “green apple Jolly Ranchers meets water,” which led to good ratings. One person found it too light and said they could barely taste it until they turned it up to 7.

GoSip green apple is a nice choice for fans of apple flavors!

34. Puressence Tangerine (Unsweetened)

puressence tangerine best cirkul flavors list

This is the most successful Puressence flavor, according to our Food Rankers team. One PureSip fan placed it at the top of their list. While Puressence Tangerine is unsweetened, the hint of citrusy tangerine flavor makes drinking water more interesting. This is the perfect Sip for people who love light, citrusy water or fruit-infused waters!

33. Fission Nocturnal (Berry Blend)

fission nocturnal berry cirkul sip

This is a great mixed berry option if you need some energy, As with most of the Fission flavors, Nocturnal is a bit like an energy drink. It’s a fairly intense sweet flavor with a solid dose of caffeine and other energy-boosting compounds. Great for a fruity morning pick-me-up!

32. LifeSip Fruit Punch

LifeSip Fruit Punch cirkul starter pack

Here comes a classic! Even though Fruit Punch might seem a bit boring for some people, it is perfect for people of all ages that like Fruit Punch flavors. One reviewer said it reminded them of sugar-free Hawaiian Punch at a setting above 5.

While there are flavors that we like more, LifeSip Fruit Punch is still a solid choice, especially for kids and nostalgic adults!

31. GoSip Kiwi Berry (Limited Edition FLVRLAB Release)

GoSip Kiwi Berry cirkul flavor cartridge

The two members of our team that had a chance to try this limited edition flavor say it is a stronger version of Strawberry Kiwi with a bit more depth of berry flavor. One of them liked the combination of a kiwi berry taste and with a caffeine kick, as you don’t often see that.

We hope this one makes a return, so the rest of us can try it!

30. Fission E.T. (Lemon Lime)

fission et cirkul water cartridges

If you like lemon lime sports drinks or energy drinks, you will probably love Fission E.T. It has a strong, sweet lemon lime flavor along with caffeine and other energy boosting compounds. As with all of the Fission flavors so far, you should probably avoid this one if you are caffeine-sensitive or prefer mild water flavoring options. We like it though!

29. Fission Send It (Fruit Punch)

Fission send it cirkul flavors list

This is basically the energy drink version of LifeSip Fruit Punch. The two are very similar in flavor, only the Fission version has been charged up to be both bolder and sweeter. It’s a nice flavor if you don’t mind the caffeine content and need the energy boost.

While we recommend most fruit punch Cirkul flavors for children, the energy drink ingredients in the Fission line are probably not a good idea to give to kids. They are a nice alternative to coffee and energy drinks for adults though!

28. GoSip Blackberry

GoSip Blackberry cirkul cartridges pic

Sweet and just slightly tart, GoSip Blackberry is surprisingly good! None of us had heard much about this flavor, so we were not sure what to expect. It is definitely underrated. We recommend checking this one out if you are looking for a unique flavor with both sweet and tart berry notes!

27. Verda Grapefruit

verda grapefruit cirkul water cartridges

Verda Grapefruit kind of tastes like watered-down grapefruit juice at the lower settings. When you really turn it up, then it turns into a fresh, tart grapefruit taste with a bit of sweetness. If you are a fan of grapefruit, then you will most likely love this one.

26. LifeSip Orange Clementine (Limited Edition FLVRLAB Release)

LifeSip Orange Clementine best cirkul flavors list

This is a nice flavor that’s worth checking out if you have the chance. It’s a pleasantly-sweet orange flavor that’s not as strong as GoSip Orange. The clementine is more of an afterthought in this LifeSip but still detectable.

LifeSip Orange Clementine is a great flavor to add to your rotation if the citrus ones are your favorites.

25. Fission Jackpot (Green Apple)

fission jackpot cirkul flavor cartridges

Now, this is a true green apple candy flavor to the max! The Fission energy drink flavors really do bring the flavor packed with a punch of energy. One reviewer said it tastes like quadruple-strength GoSip Green Apple, which works for those that love strong tastes.

With all the sweetness and ingredients of an energy drink, minus the actual sugar, this is the green apple for someone with a major day to tackle. Fission Jackpot is good and provides hours of energy.

24. FitSip Mixed Berry

FitSip Mixed Berry cirkul starter kit flavors

Most of our crew loves Mixed Berry with its mild, pleasant berry flavor that is sure to please the majority of people. Who doesn’t like a solid berry flavor?

One reviewer says it is “extremely salty and needs more berry flavor to balance that out.” The rest of us aren’t sure what salty taste they are referring to, but a little more flavor intensity would probably make this one even better. It still makes it onto most people’s list of best Cirkul flavors.

23. LifeSip Raspberry Lime (Limited Edition FLVRLAB Release)

LifeSip Raspberry Lime New Cirkul Flavors

Raspberry lime is a nice flavor that is both tart and a little sweet. Some reviewers found it a little too tart, but most of us love it.

As with most limited edition flavors, you have to enjoy it while you can, so if you enjoy medium-intensity tart fruit flavors, hurry and grab a cartridge of this one before it is gone.

22. LifeSip Honeycrisp Apple (Limited Edition FLVRLAB Release)

LifeSip Honeycrisp Apple

This limited edition Sip is best described as a true apple flavor. When you turn this one up a little. all of our reviewers agree that it makes water taste like apple juice. This makes it great for kids or anyone who enjoys apple juice!

Good news for Honeycrisp Apple fans! Cirkul brought this Sip and a few others back permanently, both online and in retail stores.

21. GoSip Black Cherry

GoSip Black Cherry best cirkul flavors list

Black Cherry is a medium-intensity flavor that does have black cherry notes. Drinking it with plain, still water is nice but average. It’s good as part of a flavor rotation.

Where GoSip Black Cherry really shines is its ability to make sparking water taste like a delicious soda. Bonus, it has a comparable amount of caffeine as well. This should be a go-to flavor for anyone looking for a healthy alternative to soda that still brings all the flavor.

Just put sparkling water in your bottle, and you are good to go!

20. Frosted Peppermint Mocha Iced Coffee

frosted peppermint mocha iced coffee cirkul sips

This is a flavor that peppermint and/or chocolate fans will want to revisit throughout the year. The Peppermint Mocha Iced Coffee Sip does include coffee notes, but the best part is the strong peppermint kick with an undercurrent of chocolate flavor.

It’s refreshingly cool yet sweet, with a holiday feel. We quite enjoy this one for a nice change of pace!

19. GoSip Orange

GoSip Orange cirkul flavors

This flavor is a true, sweet orange flavor that gives off both orange juice and classic Tang vibes. You will feel energized by the citrus and a small amount of caffeine. Citrus fans will enjoy this one and most likely put it in their top 5, at least.

18. Gateway Tea & Lemonade

gateway tea-lemonade cirkul flavors

Lemonade and Tea are a classic combination, and fans of it will love this Cirkul flavor! Cirkul makes great tea flavor options, so it’s no surprise that we liked this one. The odd taste in some of their lemon flavors is hardly detectable here, which is a definite plus.

Our tea fans and lemonade fans rated this one highly!

17. FitSip Orange Tangerine

FitSip Orange Tangerine cirkul cartridges

If the previous orange flavor doesn’t top the list for citrus fans, this one will. It provides a stronger flavor overall with notes of tangerine to give the orange more depth and complexity. Some of our reviewers went crazy over Orange Tangerine, while others say it’s just a little salty. Maybe that’s a trend with the FitSips and certain palates.

If you like orange or tangerine, this one is a highly-rated citrus flavor by our review team!

16. FitSip Strawberry Banana (Limited Edition FLVRLAB Release)

FitSip Strawberry Banana best cirkul flavors list

This FitSip makes a nice change from the standard flavors with the inclusion of banana. A couple of our reviewers tried this one when it was offered and they liked it, describing it as a pleasantly fruity and sweet flavor that would be great for kids!

15. Fission Shake And Bake

fission shake and bake new Cirkul flavors

We aren’t sure why they call a strawberry watermelon flavor Shake And Bake, but it is a refreshingly strong fruity flavor with a punch of caffeine and other ingredients to give you plenty of energy all day long.

The only reason this isn’t higher on our list is because some people find this one a bit too strong and it’s more watermelon than strawberry. There are so many good Cirkul flavors that it is tough to pick the best!

14. Gateway Sweet Tea

Cirkul Sweet tea best cirkul flavors list

Now, southern sweet tea is one of those drinks people either love or hate. For all the sweet tea drinkers out there, this is the flavor you need in your Cirkul bottle!

Some reviewers loved their Cirkul Sweet Tea, while others did not. However, even its detractors admit that it tastes exactly like a glass of sweet iced tea. They finally nailed sweet tea with this one! We are glad for that, because we’d hate to have a best Cirkul flavors list without a solid, sweet tea flavor without added fruit.

13. LifeSip Orange Mango (Limited Edition FLVRLAB Release)

LifeSip Orange Mango best cirkul flavors

LifeSip Orange Mango perfectly combines energizing orange with sweet mango. It is a moderate-intensite sweet fruity flavor that we all liked. Our citrus flavor fans went crazy for this limited edition flavor when it was available and say it’s hands-down one of the best Cirkul flavors out there. We would love to see it make a return, because there’s no other flavor quite like it in the lineup!

If you like citrus flavors or mango and have an opportunity to try this one, go for it!

12. FitSip Island Punch

FitSip Island Punch best cirkul flavors

Island Punch ranks surprisingly high on our list of the best Cirkul flavors, because it has a strong tropical punch taste that everyone liked. Those that love strong flavors went crazy for this one, with one saying it reminded them of a nice fruity drink on the beach.

For the people that prefer lighter flavors, know that Island Punch is strong. However, one member of our team found that it was perfect for her on setting 1-2, and it lasted for an unusually long time at that low setting.

11. LifeSip Berry Pomegranate

LifeSip Berry Pomegranate best cirkul flavors list

Berry Pomegranate is our favorite of the stevia-sweetened flavors. It’s a mild-to-moderate flavor with a taste that is mostly berry with notes of sweet pomegranate. It made everyone’s top ten, and there are really no criticisms for this one.

Even though we liked other flavors more, this is a great choice that deserves a spot in the top 5 best Cirkul flavors. You likely won’t regret giving this LifeSip a chance.

10. GoSip Cherry Limeade

GoSip Cherry Limaede best cirkul flavors list

This one tastes like a mix between natural cherry limeade and a cherry-lime snow cone. It is pretty intense, but you can obviously dial it down to suit your tastes if it’s too strong. Sweet with the perfect blend of cherry and lime notes, it pairs well with still or sparkling water.

GoSip Cherry Limeade ranks very high on most of our lists, even scoring a top spot on one person’s list!

9. LifeSip Watermelon

LifeSip Watermelon best cirkul flavors

LifeSip Watermelon is a refreshingly familiar flavor that received strong ratings from us. The outlier that didn’t put this in their top 5 said that it had a bit of a sweetener aftertaste and not much watermelon flavor. We all agree that it is one of the more mild-flavored Sips, so you might find yourself turning this one up higher than usual.

The delicious flavor is more than worth it for those that have a soft spot for watermelon! If that describes you, then we recommend ordering some Watermelon Sips on your next order!

8. Verda Strawberry

verda strawberry best cirkul sips

For everyone who loves a simple strawberry flavor, Verda Strawberry is worth ordering. This is a no-frills true strawberry flavor that is lightly sweetened with stevia.

If you want something a bit more subtle than the other strawberry or strawberry watermelon Sip options, we have found your perfect flavor!

7. GoSip Lime (Limited Edition FLVRLAB Release)

best cirkul flavors GoSip Lime

One member of our Food Rankers crew is sad that they missed out on trying GoSip Lime, because the rest of us rave about it often. It is a refreshing lime flavor that one person compared to fresh limeade.

Cirkul is great at replicating the flavors of fresh lime, so we aren’t sure why they don’t have more lime options available. We would love to see GoSip Lime or a new lime flavor added to their regular flavor options. If you have a chance to get your hands on GoSip Lime, go for it!

6. LifeSip Strawberry (Limited Edition FLVRLAB Release)

LifeSip Strawberry Cirkul water flavors

Here’s a deliciously sweet strawberry flavor that tastes similar to Verda Strawberry, only a little sweeter for some of us. The flavor is also stronger and tastes like biting a perfectly ripe strawberry!

We wish that this was not a limited-time Sip, as it makes sense to have it as an option for those that are sensitive to the sweeteners used in the Verda line.

5. GoSip Blue Raspberry (Limited Edition FLVRLAB Release)

GoSip Blue Raspberry best cirkul flavors

This is a fun kid-friendly flavor that adults will likely find pleasantly nostalgic. It is a standard sweet blue raspberry flavor that other Sip iterations don’t achieve. One reviewer says it tastes like drinking water with blue raspberry candy dissolved into it.

This GoSip is definitely a favorite. We wish it was not a limited edition flavor, because it’s that good!

Update: Cirkul has added GoSip Blue Raspberry to their year-round flavor selection. You can now purchase it anytime you want from Cirkul’s website or in select retail stores!

4. Go Sip Coconut Lime (Limited Edition FLVRLAB Release)

GoSip Coconut Lime best Cirkul flavors

For fans of lime and/or coconut flavors, this is the perfect summer Sip! The intensity of both flavors is just right. They are both clearly present, yet they don’t compete with or overwhelm each other. It gives off chill island vibes and makes me want to sing about putting the lime in the coconut.

We wish this flavor was available year-round, or at the very least a recurring seasonal flavor every summer. It will be a sad day when our extra Coconut Lime Sips are gone, as most of us rank it very high on our list of the best Cirkul flavors.

3. Gateway Washington Raspberry Tea

gateway washington raspberry tea best cirkul flavors list

This landed in the top 3 best Cirkul flavors for all of our reviewers with good reason. It is a delicious tea flavor, reminiscent of the sweet raspberry-flavored iced teas at many restaurants, only without a ton of sugar. Plus, it suits a wide variety of tastes with the flavor dial option. Even our crew member that typically doesn’t care for tea could enjoy this one at a lower setting of 2-3.

If you haven’t tried the Raspberry Tea TeaSip yet, be sure to get one next time. It’s one of the best Cirkul flavors available for iced tea drinkers!

2. GoSip Strawberry Watermelon

GoSip Strawberry Watermelon cirkul refills

Barely out-ranking Raspberry Tea on our list of the best Cirkul flavors is GoSip Strawberry Watermelon! This is a perfect blend of two well-loved, familiar flavors, sweet strawberry and refreshing watermelon. Some people were pleasantly surprised at how much they enjoyed this one. It definitely had us drinking more water and earned a couple of top spots in our taste test.

It is a fairly strong flavor that some may find the need to dial down a little, but it’s pleasantly sweet with a taste that resembles liquid strawberry Jell-o with notes of juicy watermelon to balance it out.

If you haven’t tried the Strawberry Watermelon Sip yet, you are definitely missing out on a favorite!

1. GoSip Passion Fruit Dragon Fruit (Limited Edition FLVRLAB Release)

GoSip Passion Fruit Dragon Fruit Best Cirkul flavors

GoSip Strawberry Watermelon was our top Cirkul flavor for a long time until this one came along! Now several of our rankers say that this limited edition Dragon Fruit Passion Fruit Sip is their favorite. It is sweet, exotic, and somewhat strong in flavor intensity. The combination of both tropical fruits is very refreshing, and one member of our panel says it made them feel like they were “chilling on a tropical island without a care in the world.”

We are disappointed that this one is not available all the time, especially since Cirkul brought back a few other popular FLVRLAB sips like the Blue Raspberry GoSip and FitSip Island Punch. There are no other passion fruit or dragon fruit blends that Cirkul currently offers, so it would make sense for this to be a permanent flavor, as it is one of the most popular and best Cirkul flavors that tastes fantastic!

If you have the opportunity to try this one, we definitely recommend trying it to turn your water bottle into a flavorful tropical escape!

    • Yes, you can buy them all directly from cirkul. They offer larger bulk orders of Sips for people looking to buy a bunch of them at once

    • The Puressence (formerly PureSip) flavors do not have any sweetener. The Lemon Lime FitSip, berry pomegranate LifeSip, Mango Grapefruit LifeSip, and Blueberry Cranberry LifeSip are sweetened with stevia instead of sucralose.

      They also recently released several new Sips, including the Stage Hydration and Verda varieties, which are stevia sweetened.

      I hope this helps 🙂

  1. I purchased my first cirkul and a limited flavor apple crisp. I am heading back to the store and stocking up. This flavor is crazy delicious. I tried it on all flavor levels I like it on 4 all the way to 9.

  2. For now, I like the Green Apple, Orange Tangerine and Watermelon flavors. I think that Mixed Berry and Fruit Punch is just mid-rank. There are no flavors that I don’t like for now.
