Let’s Get Ready To Rumble Sugar Free

June 15th, 2024

In a surprise twist the sugar free version of this drink tastes totally different to the full fat version! It’s still quite watery, but instead of the tangy caramel, it’s a more subtle fruity flavour. Sweet, but no dodgy aftertaste and very drinkable.

Let’s Get Ready To Rumble

June 8th, 2024

Helping Michael Buffer (famed ring announcer) earn a bit more cash from his famous catchphrase, Let’s Get Ready To Rumble Energy is a licensed product which is sadly nothing more than a cloned energy drink underneath. The flavour is watery with notes of caramel. Perfectly nice to drink but it’s the same as many other promotionally branded drinks. In fact it’s made by RBM who also manufacture Furocity.

Kong Strong Colossus Sugar Free

April 20th, 2024

Yup, the same as the non-sugar-free version really. Sweet, slightly tangy, and quite close to Monster in its flavour really.

Kong Strong Colossus

April 6th, 2024

It’s been so long since I tried Lidl’s Kong Strong so I honestly can’t tell if this large can ‘Colossus’ drink is actually the same as the the smaller can, I think I’ll have to go and get one of those to compare. Anyway, this drink reminds me of the early days of energy drink clones… it’s sweet, slightly tangy, and quite different to Red Bull. I’d say it’s quite close to Monster Energy actually, very, very close in flavour!

TØRST Festival Energi Utopia

March 2nd, 2024

Discovered in a supermarket in Norway, I picked this one because I initially thought you perhaps pronounced the name TRST in the same way an Irish person might pronounce ‘thirst’. But, it looks like it’s just a stylised anomaly because the actual drink’s name is TØRST (you can see the Ø hidden behind the TRST on the logo). I’m not sure if this is a special edition flavour called Festival Energi Utopia, or if it’s just affiliated with a festival named ‘Utopia’ for promotional reasons, but it’s not really a special flavour. I’m putting this down as a clone as it tastes like a regular own-brand drink. If I had to describe the taste I would say that there are notes of aniseed with a slight tang of burnt caramel. It’s very nice, don’t get me wrong, but it doesn’t have a stand-out unique flavour.

Day & Nite

February 17th, 2024

Found in a small supermarket in Haugesund, Norway. As with most of the Norwegian drinks I saw, this has a premium can design and heavy price tag to go with it (doesn’t everything in Norway?). Sadly inside it’s just a standard sugar-laden energy drink. It’s sweet and slightly tangy, which is very nice, but it’s still a generic flavoured drink much like any supermarket own-brand. If anything, it reminds me a bit of the original Euro Shopper energy drink.

Dragon Energy Sugar Free

June 3rd, 2023

I’ve tagged this as a clone, but it’s sort of not. Whilst there is that expected taste that’s very similar to Krating Dung (if you remember that one), it’s a nice energy drink that’s very fruity and sweet. Considering this is a low calorie drink you’d struggle to know that as it tastes like it’s packed full of sugar.

Mixergy

May 14th, 2022

You’ll be unlikely to find this particular energy drink anywhere… at least not in the form that it’s being presented here. This was a promotional can handed out at the Fully Charged Live event in 2002 at Farnborough. Mixergy make smart hot water tanks and control systems, and the can with the wrapper is designed to represent one of their tanks and the controls attached to it. As products go, their tanks are interesting even if I’m not certain I’d get one myself. The energy drink is unbranded though, and I’m guessing must be a generic product used by marketing companies for personalised products. I’ve taken a guess at the caffeine content because it’s not listed on the label at all. It tastes like a clone, a nice and sweet one though, and plenty one sugar in it because it coats the inside of your mouth!

Furocity Tyson Fury Original

March 19th, 2022

I’d better tread carefully reviewing this one. Manufactured by what appears to be a UK ltd company set up specifically to market Tyson Fury’s own brand of energy drink (Furocity Ltd), each can features a nice quote from the man himself “… it’s a feeling you can’t bottle. So I put it in a can.”. Yeah, I’m not arguing here. The drink itself in the original flavour is not very original though. It’s a typical clone and not expensive tasting at all. It’s lower in calories than normal full-fat energy drinks, but I guess that’s the new normal and I’d probably see that if I went back and re-reviewed drinks from years ago that are still on sale. Still, there are three other interesting flavours in this new range to try and they promise to be a bit more exciting.
