The presentation on this is really lovely! It has a taste that you don't expect from looking at it. The orange part is very sweet and the green is tart and minty at the same time. My son (5) didn't want to try the green side but loved the cantaloupe part. The rest of us enjoyed it all. This was light and refreshing and would be the nice end to a light summer meal. I did use splenda instead of sugar and found that it was just fine.
