This drink has two things going for it: quantity and price. I could only find it in litre bottles, and for the bargain price of 89p. It’s a definite clone, but quite mild and watered down in flavour. I didn’t get much of a kick from kicker, but it did the job I suppose!
Not a fan of this one sorry Monster. It tastes to me like a really weak melon squash. I mean seriously weak and watery. Perhaps the weather needed to be warmer to enjoy it, but all I could think about was, this needs more pre-mix in it! Probably would be nicer if the flavour was stronger.
This drink has a real premium feel to it. It’s presented in a tall metal canister-style bottle, almost like a thermal flask. Flavour-wise there’s nothing I can think of to compare it to. It’s lightly carbonated and very smooth and sweet, yet not really flavoured at all. It’s slightly more caffeinated than Red Bull, but other than that it’s near identical in its statistics. There’s also a sugar free version available but due to airline luggage weight restrictions I had to be more selective in which drinks I sampled whilst in the US!
Mutant is made by Monster (as you can tell by the give-away M logo on the bottle. It appears to be a rival to Mountain Dew, and taste-wise it has a nice smooth and refreshing fruity tang to it in a very similar way. However it’s much stronger in terms of caffeine!
It’s fake Lucozade! Not orange flavoured, but a generic mix of lemonylimeyoraneycitrussy stuff. Nice, but very high in sugar/calories as you’d expect from this type of beverage.
It’s just a shot of caffeinated fruit juice. I don’t much like fruit juice, so I found this horrific, but if you are after a caffeine perk without the usual energy drink flavour then this is for you. I’d be surprised if you could tell the difference between this drink and a regular juice drink.
If you’re going for a bottle of energy drink, then you’re probably better off going for this than Lucozade. It’s less sickly and pumped with a lot more caffeine. I’d classify it as a tropical drink, but on the milder and sweeter side.
I found this in a health food store, and as per usual any drink I get from a health food store tastes like cr..ubbish. I didn’t even finish the whole bottle because it tasted so naff. It didn’t give me much of a boost either even given the normal levels of caffeine.
I really like this. It’s like a rip-off of Mountain Dew, only smoother in flavour. When I opened the bottle, it make a satisfying ‘tsskk’ sound, and a gentle mist actually started flowing from the opening like an early morning scene in a BBC costume drama. Very dramatic for such a budget drink!
