NOCCO Focus Ramonade

April 13th, 2024

I had to look up what Ramonade might be. Turns out the Ram part is rambutan which is a type of tropical fruit, but the main flavour I could taste was apple. It’s basically an extremely caffeine-potent apple flavoured energy drink. I’m always nervous about trying a can of Nocco because I know I’m not going to sleep well that night! But, if you need an extremely strong pick-up then this’ll do the trick.

Kong Strong Colossus

April 6th, 2024

It’s been so long since I tried Lidl’s Kong Strong so I honestly can’t tell if this large can ‘Colossus’ drink is actually the same as the the smaller can, I think I’ll have to go and get one of those to compare. Anyway, this drink reminds me of the early days of energy drink clones… it’s sweet, slightly tangy, and quite different to Red Bull. I’d say it’s quite close to Monster Energy actually, very, very close in flavour!

Furocity Champion

March 30th, 2024

It’s a bedazzlingly gold can which sadly doesn’t give off the premium vibe that I think it was trying to go for. Rather, it looks more like the one-off budget brands you pick up in the pound stores which are trying to be shiny and bright to grab your attention. As drinks go, it’s not bad though – a very sweet tropical flavoured one that’s not too sickly even in this 500ml large can.

Bang: Candy Apple Crisp

March 23rd, 2024

I’m still not that keen on apple-flavoured drinks. I guess this one isn’t too bad, but it is quite sickly after a while. It’s basically fizzy apple squash, I’m not sure what the ‘candy’ part is, perhaps that’s just marketing. On the other hand, it’s pretty potent for caffeine so it’ll definitely wake you up!

Bang: Rainbow Unicorn

March 16th, 2024

The fragrant taste of the world’s finest juiced unicorns combined with a spectral blast of rainbows. Maybe. Well, there’s no actual clue on the can as to what flavour this drink really is so I’m going to have to make a guess. I think that it’s strawberry, but with a twist of vanilla. Please contact me if you know differently!

Battery Remix

March 9th, 2024

Quite often the combo of lime and strawberry in a drink can be slightly too sour, but Battery have got the mix just right. All this drink needs now is a glass full of crushed ice and a couple of shots of rum to make it the perfect strawberry daiquiri.

TØRST Festival Energi Utopia

March 2nd, 2024

Discovered in a supermarket in Norway, I picked this one because I initially thought you perhaps pronounced the name TRST in the same way an Irish person might pronounce ‘thirst’. But, it looks like it’s just a stylised anomaly because the actual drink’s name is TØRST (you can see the Ø hidden behind the TRST on the logo). I’m not sure if this is a special edition flavour called Festival Energi Utopia, or if it’s just affiliated with a festival named ‘Utopia’ for promotional reasons, but it’s not really a special flavour. I’m putting this down as a clone as it tastes like a regular own-brand drink. If I had to describe the taste I would say that there are notes of aniseed with a slight tang of burnt caramel. It’s very nice, don’t get me wrong, but it doesn’t have a stand-out unique flavour.

Day & Nite

February 17th, 2024

Found in a small supermarket in Haugesund, Norway. As with most of the Norwegian drinks I saw, this has a premium can design and heavy price tag to go with it (doesn’t everything in Norway?). Sadly inside it’s just a standard sugar-laden energy drink. It’s sweet and slightly tangy, which is very nice, but it’s still a generic flavoured drink much like any supermarket own-brand. If anything, it reminds me a bit of the original Euro Shopper energy drink.

Raptor Orange Mango

February 10th, 2024

Well, it’s not so much orange as mango, or tropical really. It’s a large can of tropical energy drink. Quite smooth and refreshing but other than the funky dinosaur can design there isn’t much that make this drink stand out.
