It burns!!!! If there is pineapple in this drink, then I can’t taste it. All I can taste is the fiery harshness of ginger burning its way to my stomach. It’s very strong on the ginger front if you hadn’t got that… strong and overpowering enough to make it unpleasant to drink and I couldn’t finish it. I think I managed about a quarter of the carton before giving up.
Having tried KX ginger energy drinks, I was quite apprehensive about trying this one. I was pleasantly surprised because it didn’t burn my mouth in quite the same way as KX. It’s not my sort of thing, but it wasn’t nasty and if you like ginger flavoured drinks then this could be the one for you. Much sweeter and less bitter – more like a ginger infused lemonade.
Just as nauseating as the full fat version with the same fiery aftertaste, much as you might expect from a drink named as such. I can’t tell it’s sugar free from the taste when compared with the sugared version so go and read that review for my full critique.
This is certainly an original drink. The fiery part of the flavour is from the main flavour ingredient of ginger, and it is very strong! I enjoyed it to start with because I’d never tried an energy drink quite like it. There are other ginger flavoured drinks, but they’re mostly quite watery – this one was strong! After less that half a can though I was struggling. The flavour is so strong that it becomes very sickly to drink, and by the end I was having to force it down on principle. The worse was yet to come because the strongest part of the flavour was collected in the final dregs at the bottom of the can. I felt like I’d gargled pure ginger juice…. it’s certainly full marks for something new though!
Mmmmm nice. Lemongrass and Ginger flavoured sparkling water according to the label, and it’s like drinking a Chinese takeaway. That’s not as minging as it sounds because the drink is really refreshing and more-ish. At only 50 calories it also fits in to the diet category of drinks too. Sadly though, the wake-up factor is low, with no caffeine content listed on the label leading me to assume it must be very low. The caffeine actually in the product is naturally sourced from coffee beans but wasn’t enough to give me the required hit. Still, a very nice product and well worth a try.
