Shakura Sugar Free

January 18th, 2020

Shakura Shakura, whenever, wherever, we’re meant to be together… well, sort of. The can claims that this is honey flavoured, but in my opinion it’s cream soda! It’s really nice and very sweet, and nearly impossible to tell that’s it’s sugar-free. I may even go back to the shop to get some more of these…

Moju Chilli Energy

January 11th, 2020

An experience… I’m glad it’s in shot form though. It’s basically a very juicy shot tasting mostly of pineapple juice, but there’s chewy bits floating around in it which make it quite weird to drink. Then, about 3 seconds after drinking it you get the hit of the chilli. It’s certainly very unique, but given its odd drinking experience and the very low caffeine content it’s not going to score too highly as energy shots go.

Flyte: Green Mango

January 4th, 2020

This is an odd one to describe. The ingredients lists fruit juices from concentrate: grape, passion fruit, lemon and lime. It also lists ‘flavourings’… but, and critically, there is specifically no mango mentioned anywhere specifically. In a green mango flavoured drink. I’d never heard of a green mango before so I had to Google it, and the first result was a Wikipedia entry about a type of Hummingbird of that name. I’m assuming the drink doesn’t contain hummingbird as that might go against its vegan credentials. Anyway, regardless of what it’s called and what it does or doesn’t contain, it’s a tropical flavoured energy drink, and nothing fancier or more complicated than that.

Flyte: Red Berries

December 28th, 2019

This drink is branded at the super-premium end of the spectrum. It has a matt-black can design and is pretending it’s some sort of carbon-neutral domestic energy supplier with its “clean energy” tag line. The clean part is actually referring to the natural sources of caffeine and the vegan/non-GMO ingredient list. Taste-wise it’s quite bitter, which was surprising seeing as drinks containing strawberry are usually quite sweet.

Reign: Lemon HDZ

December 21st, 2019

Considerably better than the melon variant and quite unusual tasting. It was fresh yet synthetic and not a lemon flavour I’ve come across before. It’s got those all important BCAAs in for the body builders (I’m not convinced by this latest trend which you may have realised if you’ve read previous reviews). Very high in caffeine and a large can, so be careful and drink in moderation! After a bit of research, it turns out that Reign is in fact a sister brand for Monster (not a sub-brand)… just a bit of added energy drink trivia for you there.

Reign: Melon Mania

December 14th, 2019

Well this is another one of those BCAA containing drinks that’s all the rage at the moment, but it is also quite high in caffeine. The flavour was very synthetic and sweet, and given it was a large can it was also quite sickly to drink despite being low calorie. That said, it wasn’t unpleasant… if you find this brand, go for the lemon flavour – much better.

Rockstar XD Power – Hardcore Apple

December 7th, 2019

I don’t like apple flavoured anything. Usually… but this drink surprised me. I had planned to just try and bit and tip the rest away because I was so unlikely to want to finish it. Well, all finished! A nice fresh, sweet favour, and low in calories too! It also has BCAAs for the body builders out there (??? why are you drinking energy drinks!?).

Rockstar Baja Juiced – El Mango

November 30th, 2019

A nice tropical flavoured drink in a massive can – it was quite refreshing and mild too. It’s just a shame it’s so high in calories! It doesn’t score very high on originality though despite calling it El Mango… it’s a tropical drink in everything but name.

Clean Drink Cactus-Lime

November 9th, 2019

There were a few flavours of ‘Clean Drink’ available in the small Swedish news agent that I found this in, but this looked the most interesting. Cactus and Lime flavour – it certainly tastes a bit different to your average drink. You can taste the lime easily, it’s not a strong flavour but sweet and refreshing, and then there’s the odd accompanying plant-like taste that goes with it. It’s not unpleasant and it works quite well with lime, but I couldn’t tell you exactly what type of cactus it is! I assume there must be a specific type of cactus somewhere that has been used to make drinks for centuries and there may even have been a fascinating story on the side of the can to tell me this, but I don’t speak Swedish! Anyway, worth a try for something refreshing and different.
