I’m not a fan of apple-flavoured drinks as regular readers will be aware. And I’m also not going to tell Mr Fury to his face that I didn’t like this drink much, so can someone else please pass on that message so as I can keep my face as it is?? It’s appley, but not very sour, and the apple flavour itself is more like a mild watered down synthetic flavouring rather than a stronger apple squash flavour. You might like it, I didn’t really think much of it.
Yeah I know I’m not a fan of apple-flavoured drinks, but I put myself through this punishment just for you, dear readers. Not, I didn’t like it. It was sharp and left a bad aftertaste in my mouth just as I’d feared. Very artificial tasting and quite sickly to get through, I’d give this particular Warrior flavour a miss and go with one of the others which are considerably better.
Meh. Well, what can you expect for 25p? It’s slightly bitter and a bit sickly, like cheap apple squash really.
This is the third variety of Reign that I have discovered so far. Sour Apple is refreshing and not very sour at all. It’s fruity and gets the balance just right, without being sickly at all even after drinking a whole large can of it.
Despite the awesome can graphics, this really was just a cheap tasting fizzy apple drink. It was quite sweet tasting and left a tangy aftertaste… I couldn’t recommend it.
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!?).
Carabao are really pushing their brand at the moment, with posters everywhere and even TV adverts. It’s a bit disappointing though that their main ‘special’ flavours are pretty much following those of the cheaper brands, i.e. apple and orange. I’m expecting them to release a berries one too at this rate. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a nice drink if you like apple drinks – it’s not overpowering and they’ve got the balance right, but it just feels like something I picked up from a discount shop and not the premium £1 can it is.
I’m never a big fan of apple flavoured drinks but I tried this one anyway. If you like apple drinks then consider this one a sweet and subtle variety. It’s certainly not as strong as drinking apple squash, but it’s definitely got a decent amount of flavour in it. It’s also boosted in terms of caffeine by 20% over a regular energy drink if that helps at all?
Again in the Moose Juice range, I’m really not seeing the point. They’re aimed at gym goers with their added BCAAs and low calorie content, but being in a large can they’re not easily sippable – you have to drink the whole thing in one sitting unless you go to the hassle of decanting to a bottle. They’re also expensive compare to rival energy drinks, and contain ingredients (the BCAAs I mentioned) that you’re likely to have put in your post gym protein shake anyway. It tastes good and has a nice caffeine hit, but overall it’s difficult to see where it fits in a routine.
