Red Bull Purple Edition Sugar Free

August 19th, 2017

It’s sugar free! That’s the best bit to start with. It’s flavoured with Acai Berry, and that’s a difficult flavour to pin down in terms of a description but I’ll try. To me it tasted like mixed berries (raspberries, blackcurrants) with a slight bitterness and tang added in similar to what you’d get from a tropical drink. Because this was an American drink, it was in a larger can than we’d expect in the UK, but I liked this drink overall and I hope that Red Bull start bringing their new editions over here.

Rockstar Energy Water – Blueberry and Pomegranate Acai

June 6th, 2015

I like this lots! I couldn’t taste either the pomegranate or acai, but the blueberry flavour was perfect. Not strong and sickly, but milk and very refreshing. Top marks all round for this drink.

Aspire – Apple and Acai

October 4th, 2014

Sharp and sour and really not to my taste. This is another one of those supposedly healthy style energy drinks. I didn’t enjoy it at all to be honest, but if you are the sort of person who is in to juicing then it may appeal to you.

28 White

December 7th, 2013

This is just the sugar-free version of 28 Black. It tastes more or less the same so it gets the same scores! It also contains the recently hyped Stevia (read about that here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stevia) and is the first energy drink I’ve seen to contain this sugar substitute. I expect to see a lot more Stevia based drinks in the near future.

28 Black

December 4th, 2013

Sharp and fruity. Not to my taste but I’d say this was a mixture of berries and tropical fruits. It reckons it’ll give me 28 hours of energy and there’s even a graph on the side of the can to scientifically prove it beyond reasonable doubt. Nope… not convinced myself, but it’s a potent drink.
