Monster Reserve: Orange Dreamsicle

June 29th, 2024

Orange seems to be making a bit of a come-back for 2024 and I’m seeing a few new orange-flavoured drinks around. This Orange Monster is really quite a smooth tasting drink. The orange flavour is mellow without any sharp edges but not weak – it’s almost like a slightly creamy tasting orange (weird, huh?) but it works well.

Let’s Get Ready To Rumble Sugar Free

June 15th, 2024

In a surprise twist the sugar free version of this drink tastes totally different to the full fat version! It’s still quite watery, but instead of the tangy caramel, it’s a more subtle fruity flavour. Sweet, but no dodgy aftertaste and very drinkable.

Reign: Mang-o-Matic

May 11th, 2024

It’s the “health” brand of Monster back again with a new tropical-style drink flavoured with mango. Yeah, it’s a large can, tastes of mango, gives you a big hit of caffeine. Sadly nothing more special than that though – a premium prices tropical energy drink.

Kong Strong Colossus Sugar Free

April 20th, 2024

Yup, the same as the non-sugar-free version really. Sweet, slightly tangy, and quite close to Monster in its flavour really.

Kong Strong Colossus

April 6th, 2024

It’s been so long since I tried Lidl’s Kong Strong so I honestly can’t tell if this large can ‘Colossus’ drink is actually the same as the the smaller can, I think I’ll have to go and get one of those to compare. Anyway, this drink reminds me of the early days of energy drink clones… it’s sweet, slightly tangy, and quite different to Red Bull. I’d say it’s quite close to Monster Energy actually, very, very close in flavour!

Furocity Champion

March 30th, 2024

It’s a bedazzlingly gold can which sadly doesn’t give off the premium vibe that I think it was trying to go for. Rather, it looks more like the one-off budget brands you pick up in the pound stores which are trying to be shiny and bright to grab your attention. As drinks go, it’s not bad though – a very sweet tropical flavoured one that’s not too sickly even in this 500ml large can.

Bang: Candy Apple Crisp

March 23rd, 2024

I’m still not that keen on apple-flavoured drinks. I guess this one isn’t too bad, but it is quite sickly after a while. It’s basically fizzy apple squash, I’m not sure what the ‘candy’ part is, perhaps that’s just marketing. On the other hand, it’s pretty potent for caffeine so it’ll definitely wake you up!

Bang: Rainbow Unicorn

March 16th, 2024

The fragrant taste of the world’s finest juiced unicorns combined with a spectral blast of rainbows. Maybe. Well, there’s no actual clue on the can as to what flavour this drink really is so I’m going to have to make a guess. I think that it’s strawberry, but with a twist of vanilla. Please contact me if you know differently!

Battery Remix

March 9th, 2024

Quite often the combo of lime and strawberry in a drink can be slightly too sour, but Battery have got the mix just right. All this drink needs now is a glass full of crushed ice and a couple of shots of rum to make it the perfect strawberry daiquiri.
