This brand is attempting to pass itself off as premium. The two-tone design of the can is a step in the right direction, but the drink itself is nothing unique. It’s on the watery side, which is not a bad thing especially as it’s just about right in terms of not being too sweet, too sickly or too bitter. But, there’s no standout quality and it is ultimately another wannabe.
Well the name and the can design are quite good in my opinion, but the drink is just a generic clone. It’s a sweet and sickly one too, and leaves a sugary coating in your mouth.
This is the third Faxe Kondi drink I’ve tried, and sadly the least inspiring. It’s a clone, and it makes no pretence of that to be fair with its “Intense Taste of Energy Drink” slogan along the top of the can. Very sweet, quite sickly, but pretty much what you’d expect from a clone.
As with the ‘original’ flavour, it’s a clone and sadly nothing more special than that. Taste-wise, it’s actually difficult to tell that’s it’s sugar-free and it really does taste very similar to its full-fat version. It’s quite a watered down flavour to start with anyway.
A great can design and brand name, but sadly it’s just a façade for a generic clone drink. It’s easy to drink and not bitter or sickly, but there’s not too much else to say about this one unfortunately.
I’m not sure where Tesco managed to dig this drink up from, but its web site is no longer active and the social media accounts haven’t posted anything in years. Aside from the spelling of Pantha, which offends my pedantry, the drink is nothing special. It’s a basic sickly tasting clone and full of sugar.
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!
Nope, that’s not a typo with a double-w. I guess the design of the can is supposed to look a bit like a battery. Not one of the premium batteries, but one of those cheap batteries you find in megavalue shops selling at £1 for a pack of 100, and that value branding does sadly reflect on the taste. It’s a clone with quite a watery taste to it, and quite a sticky and sickly aftertaste. Still, it does say “Recharge your battery” on the can, and with 40mg/100ml caffeine content it’s pretty high!
I have to be honest, this tastes nothing at all like its original counterpart. It’s a nice energy drink with no dodgy aftertaste and overall quite easy to drink.
