Rubicon Raw Cherry and Pomegranate

June 12th, 2021

The first of three new Rubicon flavours I’ve discovered – and I hope the other two are as good as this one. There’s a strong and tangy, slightly sour cherry flavour to this – not much of the pomegranate that I could tell, but overall this was a really nice drink. Not too sickly, but still very sweet.

Monster Ultra Fiesta

June 5th, 2021

And the second Monster flavour of the year (2021)… this time it’s another tropical one but in sugar-free form. Ultra Fiesta is a mango flavoured beverage in a large 500ml can. It’s mild and refreshing, and easy to drink due to the lack of sugar making it less sickly than full fat versions.

Monster Juiced Monarch

May 29th, 2021

This is the first of two new Monster flavours I’ve discovered so far this year (2021). It looks like Monster have decided that tropical flavours are the way forward – I know it officially says it’s nectarine and peach, but it just comes across as a refreshing and mild tropical drink. Loads of sugar, plenty of caffeine, a decent wake-up hit.

Dr Pepper Energy

May 22nd, 2021

Take Dr Pepper, bung some caffeine in it, and market it as an energy drink… and there you go! It really is just Dr Pepper but not suitable for children. There’s nothing else quite like Dr Pepper, so it does obviously have to get full marks for originality. They haven’t skimped on the sugar either, so you get a full kick out of this can. There is one caveat here though: this is a US import and not available in the UK apart from specialist import sites.

Red Bull: Summer Edition (2021) Cactus Fruit

March 13th, 2021

Welcome to summer 2021 (well, at the time of writing it’s only spring!), and welcome to another Red Bull summer edition. This year they’ve given us “Cactus Fruit”. I’d no idea what to expect from this flavour at all, but it turns out that it’s just a refreshing tropical drink really. It’s smooth and sweet, but nowhere near as sickly as other tropical drinks usually are.

Warrior – Overly Orange

December 12th, 2020

Not bad, but could be better. Orange energy drinks have a habit of being quite sickly, especially when supplied as a large portion like this one. It is sickly, and could be improved by only being in a 250ml can instead, but there are much worse drinks out there! I’m not keen on their naming convention for the flavours either – Overly Orange seems a little childish compared to the more aggressive Warrior branding. I think a simple ‘Orange’ would have sufficed instead of letting the intern loose on the branding.

Warrior – Citrus Delight

December 5th, 2020

Amazing! I do love a lemon flavoured energy drink. This one is smooth and refreshing, not too strong or sour/bitter at all. At only 69p it’s a bargain, and it benefits from a slight reduction in calories in order to avoid the UK sugar tax by using a mixture of sugar and sweeteners.

Monster HydroSport Superfuel Hang Time

September 19th, 2020

It’s a refreshing and still sports drink of an unknown flavour! Some sort of fruit but I genuinely couldn’t tell you what it is. It might be a very watered down version of the Monster Zero (blue label) drink, but it really is tricky to identify it. It’s nice anyway, so give it a go. Being non-carbonated, it’s very easy to drink.

Monster Mule Ginger Brew

September 12th, 2020

Energy drinks with ginger are rare, and usually they burn! Monster have managed to get the flavour just right here. There’s no hint of the usual Monster energy mix here at all, instead you have a nice and surprisingly refreshing ginger and lime (aka, Moscow Mule without the vodka) drink. It’s quite high in sugar and gives you a massive kick there along with the usual caffeine content. I found this from US import site https://atasteofthestates.com/
