Warrior – Citrus Delight

December 5th, 2020

Amazing! I do love a lemon flavoured energy drink. This one is smooth and refreshing, not too strong or sour/bitter at all. At only 69p it’s a bargain, and it benefits from a slight reduction in calories in order to avoid the UK sugar tax by using a mixture of sugar and sweeteners.

Brain Füd: Citrus and Mint

April 11th, 2020

Another Tetra Pak still drink, this one tasting like an alcohol-free mojito! I’m not convinced that mint should be an ingredient in any drink – it takes me by surprise every time I take a sip, and not in a good way. But, I did drink the whole thing so it couldn’t have been that bad. But, it is the dominant flavour going on here and I’d have much preferred it to have been just a nice still lemon-lime drink instead.

Mutant: Gold Strike

August 10th, 2019

I discovered this range of Mutant drinks in a confectionary import shop in Cardiff. I thought at first it was a Monster rip-off, but it turns out it is actually a genuine Monster brand. The drink has been imported from Vietnam, and there’s very little English on the label so it’s quite difficult to make out any information about it from there. However, remembering when I tried a bottle of Mutant a while back, this spin-off brand is Monster’s attempt to get in on the Mountain Dew market. The Gold Strike flavour here is very similar to Mountain Dew White Out. It’s smooth and creamy (!?), I guess a bit like a citrus cream soda. Very nice, but very sweet and not that refreshing if that’s what you’re looking for.

Emerge Zero White

May 26th, 2018

Of the three citrus flavoured Emerge Zero drinks I’ve tried recently, this is probably my least favourite. That’s not to say that it’s not nice because it is, but it’s just not so refreshing or enjoyable. It’s got a slightly tart flavour, perhaps with grapefruit in.

Emerge Active8 Water: Dragon Fruit

December 2nd, 2017

Of the three new Emerge Active8 flavours that have appeared recently, this is my least favourite. Its full description is “Dragon Fruit Citrus Zing”, and zing is the right word. There’s a tangy bitterness there which I’m not enjoying too much because it leaves a sickly aftertaste. It’s very fruity and strong compared to the other drinks in the range – my recommendation would be to choose one of the other two instead.

Monster Hydro Mean Green

September 16th, 2017

Not sure I liked this much. It was still and very refreshing, but quite tart and tropical. I’d have preferred something a bit more lemonade-like, but having said that it was a change from the usual fizzy energy drinks.

Rockstar Revolt Killer Citrus

February 11th, 2017

It packs a pretty good punch for a sugar free energy drink. Taste-wise, it’s almost tropical as opposed to lemon/orange, but it’s not overly tart and has a nice smooth flavour.

Spar Original Energy

May 14th, 2016

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.

E-ON – Citrus Punch

March 5th, 2016

I expected a lemon flavour, but it’s actually a tropical drink. High in caffeine and calorie content, it was disappointing.
