Rockstar XD Power – Hardcore Apple

December 7th, 2019

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 Green Apple Sugar Free

September 29th, 2018

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.

Hell Strong Apple

April 28th, 2018

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?

Moose Juice: Green Apple

November 11th, 2017

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.

Carabao Green Apple

September 9th, 2017

Considering this says it’s a product of Thailand, I’m disappointed. Usually Thai energy drinks are something special, something unusual, but this drink was strange and odd tasting. It is sickly and very sweet with an odd aftertaste.

Red Bull Summer Edition (Kiwismak/Kiwi-Apple)

October 22nd, 2016

I’ve never tried a kiwi flavoured drink before, and Red Bull have managed this really well. It’s sweet, fruity, but subtle and easy to drink. There’s no nasty aftertaste, and you still get the Red Bull kick you expect.

Euro Shopper Sour Apple

June 13th, 2015

It’s okay, but it’s a budget apple flavoured drink. It’s not sour by any definition of the word, but it is quite sickly and sweet. Basically, it’s fizzy apple squash.

Blue Charge Sour Apple

May 9th, 2015

Yeah, it’s not sour! Come on beverage makers, make a properly actually really really sour drink and THEN you can call it sour! It’s apple, it’s caffeinated, that’s all.

LSV Sours – Apple

February 7th, 2015

Once again, it’s just not sour enough. I’m not a fan of apple flavoured drinks either but apple flavour and sour sweets do go hand in hand. Not impressed personally.
