Reign: Razzle Berry

May 30th, 2020

Amazing! It’s like a raspberry ice pop but low calorie. The flavour is slightly muted, which is initially disappointing but by the time you get to the end of the can you’re grateful for. It prevents it from being too sickly and actually makes it quite refreshing.

Brain Füd: Berry and Coconut

March 28th, 2020

This is an unusual find. It’s sold in Tetra Pak cartons instead of cans, and that’s because it’s a still drink rather than carbonated. This Berry and Coconut flavoured variety was very surprisingly quite nice! It’s not too strong in flavour, but has just enough fruity taste to be interesting and refreshing. The caffeine content is low, but enough. Very original, low in calories, top marks from me!

Mad-Croc Red Berry

February 29th, 2020

Quite a sour berry flavoured drink and jam packed full of sugar too. It tasted quite budget, like a supermarket own-brand berry drink.

Flyte: Red Berries

December 28th, 2019

This drink is branded at the super-premium end of the spectrum. It has a matt-black can design and is pretending it’s some sort of carbon-neutral domestic energy supplier with its “clean energy” tag line. The clean part is actually referring to the natural sources of caffeine and the vegan/non-GMO ingredient list. Taste-wise it’s quite bitter, which was surprising seeing as drinks containing strawberry are usually quite sweet.

Rockstar Twister Wacked Red Berry

May 11th, 2019

I’ll start with the name… I’m familiar with the word ‘whack’, but not ‘wack’, so I needed to look that up. Apparently it means “bad, stupid, or unusual”, and I’m guessing it’s that last definition that they intended to associate with this flavour! Just like the other blue raspberry flavour I tried last week, the red berry is also quite tasty but sickly. But mostly tasty! The flavour took a while to identify, but I’d say it tastes like raspberry donuts (yes, American spelling). Not just normal raspberry donuts, but the artificial flavouring you get when you try a raspberry donut flavoured product such as raspberry donut flavoured milkshake or sweets. It’s not a flavour I’ve ever come across in an energy drink before and is very different to the raspberry of the blue raspberry drink.

Wow Focus Nootropic Mixed Berry

April 27th, 2019

What is ‘Nootropic’? Apparently it’s ingredients that support cognitive function and reduce fatigue, and inspired by the film ‘Limitless’ (the book’s better, but I still loved the film and the TV series personally!). This is a new brand, and the can design is a bit different too with it being wrapped in a label instead of directly printed. The flavour of the drink sadly doesn’t appear to be anything special. It tastes like a supermarket own-brand blackcurrant drink. It’s low calorie (almost no-calorie) so it does have that in its favour.

USN Spike Energy Shot Berry

March 16th, 2019

You don’t tend to see many energy shots anymore. There was a time several years ago when every brand had a ‘shot’ version. As I expected though, these Spike shots have the familiar extreme bitterness that the shots of old use to provide. This berry flavoured shot was sadly masked by that aforementioned bitterness, so all you really taste is a sour burst of liquid that makes you draw your lips back over your teeth and inhale sharply.

Dark Thunder Berry Boost

February 16th, 2019

Very nice, like a mixture of strawberry and raspberry in one large low calorie energy drink. This is the second of Aldi’s large can energy drinks that I’ve tried and it’s pretty good. So far so good!

SuperFit Diet Fresh Mixed Berry

February 2nd, 2019

Well, not as bad as I had expected given that this is aimed at a healthier consumer. There’s no caffeine content on the can which means it’s low, like at least Cola-Cola low, but there must be some caffeine in there because it contains green tea. I didn’t get much of a kick from it, but it was refreshing and not sickly at all.
