I’ve never tried a kiwi flavoured drink before, and Red Bull have managed this really well. It’s sweet, fruity, but subtle and easy to drink. There’s no nasty aftertaste, and you still get the Red Bull kick you expect.
Do you see what they did there? They took ‘Blue’ and replaced it with ‘Pink’ cuz it’s a pink drink, so funny, the marketing department at Sainsbury’s must’ve been in stitches over that for hours… <end of sarcasm>. As a drink though, it’s rather bland. There’s a nice taste of strawberry and kiwi in there somewhere, but it’s so watered down that you don’t get enough of the flavour coming through. That said, it’s refreshing and light.
I don’t generally like the taste of apples, either the real fruit or the synthetic flavouring version…. so I tried this drink with a low opinion already formed. It actually surprised me because I now want to get another can of this. The flavour is light and sweet, but not too sweet. It’s fruity and moreish, and packs quite a punch of wake-up-ness – I really enjoyed this new Relentless variety, and it’s definitely original – there’s nothing out there I can compare it too even if I look through my list of USA drinks… This one is unique to the UK for the moment so go buy it and try it and help it stay on sale!
