I have to admit, this drink was purchased mainly for the interesting name… <insert innuendo here>. It’s quite sickly and not refreshing, the fruit punch flavour being very strong.
This is a proper local Canadian product discovered while on holiday in Vancouver. Not only does it state it’s a “Certified Canadian Aboriginal Business” on the can, but it’s also flavoured with Saskatoon Berry which is a very local ingredient to make use of! That gives this drink a score of 5/5 for originality. The flavour itself is sweet and tangy, with a strange aftertaste – a bit like sour cherry mixed with cranberry juice.
This fruit punch flavoured drink tastes like Double Dip cherry and orange mixed together. I’m sure I’ve described other drinks like that too before, but that doesn’t mean this isn’t unique – it’s really smooth in the way you’d expect a Mountain Dew drink to taste. Easy to drink, and low in calories too.
A strawberry energy drink is really unusual. It’s pretty much just Calpol in a can though! It’s reeaally sweet and sickly, and clings to your teeth, but it’s still pretty nice. I’m not sure what the ‘whipped’ part of the flavour is, but the strawberry flavour is very dominant. Definitely worth a try if you find it.
I was hoping for a nice smooth tasting drink but as this was a shot it had a really bitter flavour. It does pack one ‘eck of a kick though and tweaked me for hours!
A large can of clone-style energy drink. Nothing particularly special about it, but it’s sweet, not too sour or sharp, but definitely budget.
Now this is a strange one that I can’t quite identify the flavour of. I think it’s mixed berries, and I’m sure I can taste blackcurrants in there somewhere. It’s nice, it’s quite a mild and watered down flavour, and there is something quite medicated about the taste too – along the lines of Calpol!
It packs a pretty good punch for a sugar free energy drink. Taste-wise, it’s almost tropical as opposed to lemon/orange, but it’s not overly tart and has a nice smooth flavour.
Sharp and sweet, very fruity and difficult to tell that it’s a sugar-free drink. They’ve made the can a bit funky with multi-coloured fire patterns all over it and called it limited edition.
