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!
What can I say other than it’s a potent version of Coca Cola? I’m not much of a Coke drinker to be honest, but to me it didn’t taste any different to regular Coke. It’s got a much higher caffeine content, and doesn’t appear to be suffering from a lack of sugar either.
Imagine if you can that you have managed to liquidise or juice a whole bunch of sour fizzy cola bottle sweets. And then you downed it in one go. That’s pretty much what you have with this cola flavoured energy shot. It gets full marks for originality because I have never tasted anything like this before! It needs to be sweeter though to be perfect because you still get the expected very bitter and sour taste that you get with every other energy shot. Worth a go if you manage to find one because it’s one of a kind.
Not bad actually! Given the pretty bad taste of regular KX, their colas are alright. Okay, so it still tastes like a cheap cola, but it is packed full of caffeine and is low calorie too. Overall, not a bad choice for cola lovers.
What a pleasant little cola drink. It’s not too sickly, it’s not too strong. It’s just a nice caffeinated cola. So much better than I’d expected from the KX range of drinks to be honest.
I’m told that this is a standard issue energy drink in the US, but in the UK you can’t get hold of it. I found this in Spain so jumped at the chance of trying it without paying extortionate money to import a can. It’s really good! It tastes like fruit punch with a whole load of caramel in, and possibly a dash of cola in the background somewhere too. Whatever the flavour ingredients are (I don’t know, the can was in Spanish), they clearly work well together. I didn’t get the usual synthetic Monster flavour that is so prominent with this brand in this drink either which is a plus-point in my opinion.
Update 2021-09-23: Obviously since I first reviewed this drink over seven years ago, it has been available in the UK for quite a while. They have now updated the can design too, so I’ve updated the image on this review too. I am also now very certain that this is basically a cola flavoured drink.
Basically, it’s a really cheap tasting watery cola that left me feeling a little nauseous. It’s of course quite high in caffeine or it wouldn’t make an appearance on this site, but personally, if you like cola, get a proper brand. If you like energy drinks, get a proper energy drink.
Technically, I don’t normally allow colas a space on this web site because I don’t count them as energy drinks. I’ve made the occasional exception for colas which try to be energy drinks by containing guarana or taurine, but it’s always by exception. Red Bull Cola is another exception, but only because of its name. In every other respect it doesn’t count as an energy drink even though it packs in the same amount of caffeine as Lucozade. It tastes like a cola. That’s it really, nothing exceptional at all really and it’s not even one of the better colas. I was hoping for a slightly cola flavoured mix with Red Bull which would have been interesting but nope, it’s just a cola.
A potent cola under Spar’s own-brand Blue Bear label. It tastes like a cheap cola but isn’t as bad as others I’ve tried – personally, I’d stick to the normal energy drink flavours but if you’re after something different then give it a go.
