Quite a tart yet sweet drink, remeniscent of double-dips from the sweet shop. Nice in a 250ml can but I wouldn’t want much more than that. The upside is though it’s sugar-free!
When it says Berry on the can… it means one specific berry: cherry. It’s really tasty, but it doesn’t quite give the caffiene hit you’d expect from an energy drink (quite low at 14mg/100ml). I found this in Ireland – never seen it in the UK though so keep your eyes out for it.
This cherry flavoured drink is really nice – but it does need to be drunk whilst cool. Once it starts to warm up it becomes a little sickly.
Not so sour, but still quite nice. It’s just a fizzy cherry flavoured energy drink. I enjoyed it, but probably won’t buy it again. What I really want to see from drinks manufacturers is a properly sour energy drink. I want one that makes me pull my gums back over my teeth that it’s so sour. I’d buy a whole case of those!
As it says on the can, it’s refreshing! Sweet and artificial, but tasty, fruity and refreshing. It’s also lower in calories per 100ml than most energy drinks, but it’s certainly not low calorie. I highly recommend this new Relentless flavour for something a bit different and long may it last!
Have you ever tried Mountain Dew Code Red? It’s essentially the same nice smooth flavour, but powered up with extra caffeine and taurine to give it the full on Energy Drink credentials. It’s nice but not refreshing, and as I paid £4.50 for the can I’m a little bit disappointed… that isn’t to say I wouldn’t try the other flavours in the Amp Energy range.
A pleasant Lucozade wannabe with a refreshing cherry flavour. It doesn’t pack much of a caffeine kick, but it’s still more than the orange version of this product which doesn’t even list any caffeine in the ingredients. Cheap and cheerful (cherryful?)
I’m really not convinced on the combination of cherry and lime in this drink. The cherry flavour comes through, but it someone severely soured by the lime making it quite a bitter experience. Having tried the original Pit Bull, I could sense a theme as the underlying taste of the original was evident in this drink too, however I don’think it works as a mixer with other ingredients. Still, there are other Pit Bull cocktails to try and they could turn out to be wonderful so I shall withhold my judgement on this brand until then. Personally, I won’t be trying this again because there are many more nicer tasting drinks out there.
I was very surprised when I drank this – going by the track record of previous Lucozade Energy products, I expected this one to also involve a subtle flavour. I was very wrong, it’s about as in-your-face cherry flavoured as you can get. It wasn’t a great cherry flavour either – far too strong and sickly. If Lucozade had carried on with their subtle flavouring techniques then this drink may have worked. As usual for Lucozade, high in calories, low in caffeine so sadly low marks all-round.
