A bit of a disappointment really. It was a very generic ‘berry’ flavour, but I’d say it was predominantly blackcurrant. Low in calories but due to the large can size you got quite a caffeine hit. Quite sickly to drink the final third of the can though!
This is the sister flavour to ‘Hang Time’ which I stumbled across whilst at the Post Office / Bargain Booze dropping a parcel off. It was sitting all alone on the shelf so I just had to put it out of its misery. It’s a non-carbonated, quite large bottle of energy drink with no real description as to what the flavour might be. The only clue I could see was the orange coloured text on the bottle. Like the Hang Time version of the drink, the flavour is difficult to identify, but I’m pretty certain that there’s orange in there somewhere, possibly mixed with some other similar citrus fruits. It’s pretty nice and tangy with a large caffeine kick purely due to the volume of liquid.
I love lemon energy drinks… regular readers will know that already. This one is super-high with caffeine (55mg/100ml) in a medium-sized can (330ml) so packs quite a punch. Added BCAAs for that unneeded post-workout hit combine with a low calorie count to deliver a curious combination (I won’t rant about energy drinks aimed at serious gym-goers again), but it is very easy to drink and highly refreshing.
Now here’s the tropical NOCCO – but don’t get this one, get the pineapple one I reviewed last week. This one is a bit sharp and synthetic tasting, quite difficult to get through the whole can really.
I first discovered NOCCO at a 7Eleven whilst on holiday in Sweden. Being Sweden, it was a very expensive purchase. Then, a few days later I found myself in Norway and discovered NOCCO was even more expensive there! Anyway… I saw NOCCO being sold in Morrisons in the UK and it was considerably cheaper. This red berries flavour was quite bitter, but not as unpleasant as I had expected. After a few sips I had accustomed myself to the bitterness and started to enjoy it. An interesting line of drinks if you can find them. Oh yes, and they have a lot of caffeine in them.
