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.
This drink was so sour that I didn’t get any cola flavour at all. I might just as well have been sucking on a lemon to be honest. Still, it’s a very fast acting and potent drink which bolted me awake pretty quickly!
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.
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.
I’m not a big fan of colas, but I was pleasantly surprised. Lucozade’s tactic of watering down the flavours of their products actual pays off in this limited ‘black’ edition cola. It’s a mellow drink, very smooth and sweet, but avoids the pitfall of many cheap colas by not being too sweet and sickly or synthetic tasting. Grab it while you can because it’s only out for a limited time.
I expected this to taste like a very cheap cola but was pleasantly surprised. It’s quite a mild flavour which means it’s not too sickly at all. I know, it’s a cola and the rules of Fizzy Wake-Up say that colas/cokes etc can’t be reviewed on this site because they don’t officially count as an Energy Drink. Well this one is different because it contains a pumped up amount of caffeine along with guarana and taurine which basically means it’s like a cola blended with an energy drink. As colas go it’s expensive, but as premium energy drinks go it’s reasonably priced. I’m classing this as a one-off purchase as there are better tasting energy drinks and better tasting colas out there.
