Power Up

Power Up

June 4th, 2011

After all the effort expended in the search for new energy drinks abroad, I find this in my local shop. This drink is helpfully summarised on the can: “Liquid Strength, Power Up, Extra Strong, Original Formula, Feel the Energy, Enjoy it Icecold [sic]”.

Given that it’s only 35p, I consider this to be a bargain.The flavour is very different to Red Bull with a flavour that should be sour but is very sweet – I’m sure I’ve tasted this flavour in another drink before but I can’t place it. The ingredients are the standard energy drink affair: caffeine, taurine and sugars so nothing to stand it apart from the crowd.

The “Extra Strong” slogan is misleading to say the least. The caffeine content is 30mg/100ml which is lower than Red Bull and most premium energy drinks, but the same as most bargain basement ones. Now, Power Up Products in Manchester, do you do a sugar-free version?
