Monster Punch: Pipeline Punch

July 29th, 2017

When you open the can you are greeted with the unmistakable ‘tropical’ aroma of this drink. It turns out the taste is not quite as the smell suggests – it’s fruity and slightly sharp, but much smoother than say Monster Ripper.

Boost Energy Tropical Guango Sugar Free

December 31st, 2016

Sharp and sweet, very fruity and difficult to tell that it’s a sugar-free drink. They’ve made the can a bit funky with multi-coloured fire patterns all over it and called it limited edition.

Full On: Tropical and Guava

December 3rd, 2016

As I always say (or do now), there just aren’t enough drink names starting with the letter F. And this one only cost me 25p (ignore the can’s printed price point!) for a massive 500ml can. This drink tastes pretty good for a tropical blend – it was sweet, not overpowering at all, and not too sickly which is an important quality for a large can of drink. I’d buy it again, which is rare for me to say about tropical drinks! I’m now keeping my eyes out for other Full On flavours – so far this is the only one spotted in the wild but I imagine there must be an original around too.

Rockstar Pure Zero Guava

May 21st, 2016

A fruity and almost tropical tasting drink with zero* (read that as 4kcal/100ml) calories. It’s nice but pretty sickly even when straight out of the fridge. At the time of writing this, Rockstar Energy still haven’t acknowledged any of their Pure Zero products on their UK web site, but if you look at the international US version you can get a taste of other flavours they may be releasing under this label.

Tropicana Energy – Mango and Guava

August 29th, 2015

It’s just a shot of caffeinated fruit juice. I don’t much like fruit juice, so I found this horrific, but if you are after a caffeine perk without the usual energy drink flavour then this is for you. I’d be surprised if you could tell the difference between this drink and a regular juice drink.

Mixxed Up – Guave

March 19th, 2014

I’ve never tried a guava (guave? the spelling seems to vary everywhere) fruit, so don’t really know what it is supposed to taste like. This drink I can tell you about though. It has a non-descript slightly fruity taste which I can’t really compare to anything. I suppose it could be a mixture of all sorts of fruits watered down, much like a generic ‘fruit’ squash. It was nice, and being in a larger than normal can (330ml) gives you quite a kick, but I can’t say it would be top of my list to buy again.
