Pretty much like its full fat brother, Colossus is Lidl’s attempt to mimic Monster’s branding witha giant ripped-style letter X on the front of the can. I mean, it’s even using the same colours as Monster with green for the original version and blue for this low calorie version.
Surprisingly this didn’t actually taste anything like the full fat version, it’s almost like a totally different formula. I found it a bit sickly and maybe with a hint of aniseed too, it’s not often I prefer the non-diet version of a particular brand but in this case normal Kong is better.
Not just strong, but KONG STRONG! I assume this drink is branded to take advantage of the recent Kong movie. Taste-wise it was ok, very sweet and pleasant to drink. I have a feeling though that’s it’s just a rebranded version of their Mixxxxxxxxxed Up drink of days gone by.
Once again, purchased just for the name! It’s a clone, but one with amusing packaging 🙂 Only available in Canada!
It’s a clone! If I’d purchased this in the UK I’d have expected to find it in a budget shop costing only a few pence, but as I purchased this in Vancouver it cost a fortune! It’s really quite strong and sugary, and sparked me into life very quickly, but given its competition of the bigger brands it just doesn’t compare on taste.
A large can of clone-style energy drink. Nothing particularly special about it, but it’s sweet, not too sour or sharp, but definitely budget.
WHOOP! It’s the 400th energy drink to be reviewed on this site! Sadly, it’s not a special drink though. With a name like Volcaz and discovered in the Polish (as in the country, not the cleaning product) aisle of Tesco, this drink seems to have been made in Hungary. It’s just a clone, but a nice and sweet one with no bitter aftertaste.
Sadly this is just a massive can of generic tasting energy drink. It’s sweet and slightly bitter, and quite difficult to finish because of that. Gives you a big sugar punch but that’s all.
Nope, it doesn’t taste like gravy and it isn’t thick and brown. It’s just a cheapo tasting clone with a bitter tang to it. Drinkable, but quite definitely budget.
