It’s Cherry Coke with a kick! Much nicer than normal coke in my opinion because the fruity cherry flavour makes the classic coke taste a lot lighter. Full of calories and caffeine, this drink is a great sugary summer beverage. If they did a sugar-free version it’d be even better!
The first of three new Rubicon flavours I’ve discovered – and I hope the other two are as good as this one. There’s a strong and tangy, slightly sour cherry flavour to this – not much of the pomegranate that I could tell, but overall this was a really nice drink. Not too sickly, but still very sweet.
I was a little bit disappointed with this drink. It started off great, a nice and sweet fix cherry flavour that was a bit different to the norm. But, after only a few sips it became quite sickly to drink. That’s a shame really because they really have tried something different, so maybe it’s just not to my taste.
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.
I really like this. Synthetic and strongly flavoured, it’s really nice as well as quite cheap. It’s not very sour at all though as you would expect (come on, the ultra sour drink challenge is still open).
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.
