I’m not a fan of apple-flavoured drinks as regular readers will be aware. And I’m also not going to tell Mr Fury to his face that I didn’t like this drink much, so can someone else please pass on that message so as I can keep my face as it is?? It’s appley, but not very sour, and the apple flavour itself is more like a mild watered down synthetic flavouring rather than a stronger apple squash flavour. You might like it, I didn’t really think much of it.
Not my favourite Monster Ultra flavour, but it’s smooth as always in-line with the Monster brand. The watermelon flavour is not too strong, quite sweet, and really needs to be drunk straight from the freezer. If you let it warm up, it’s really not as enjoyable. I could only find this drink in a multipack of 4 at Tesco, which was quite a lot to get through.
Sadly this is just a bog-standard cheap tasting berry drink much like a lot of the supermarket own-brand ones. If you’re going to go with Warrior, choose the Original or Citrus flavours, those are by far the most original and tasty variants.
This was my favourite of the four Furocity flavours. If the weather had been warmer, I’d have enjoyed it even more – it’s blue raspberry freeze-pops in a can 🙂 Very sweet and full of nostalgia, but not too sickly meaning you can easily drink a large can far too quickly.
I’d better tread carefully reviewing this one. Manufactured by what appears to be a UK ltd company set up specifically to market Tyson Fury’s own brand of energy drink (Furocity Ltd), each can features a nice quote from the man himself “… it’s a feeling you can’t bottle. So I put it in a can.”. Yeah, I’m not arguing here. The drink itself in the original flavour is not very original though. It’s a typical clone and not expensive tasting at all. It’s lower in calories than normal full-fat energy drinks, but I guess that’s the new normal and I’d probably see that if I went back and re-reviewed drinks from years ago that are still on sale. Still, there are three other interesting flavours in this new range to try and they promise to be a bit more exciting.
Full marks for original, because like its name says it really is original for an energy drink of this type. There is a glucosey sort of taste to it much like normal Lucozade Original, only instead of the sharp watered down flavour of that drink, what you get is a much more concentrated flavour. It’s very sweet, but contains sweeteners to reduce the total sugar content, and the smell is definitely reminiscent of Lucozade Original. All in, a nice energy drink, but could have done with being half the portion size because 500ml is very sickly to get through!
Pineapple… that’s what Monster decided would be the best flavour to fill its first-place-metal-coloured can. I’m not certain it was the best choice personally, but it’s not a bad flavour. Yes, you can tell it’s pineapple, and it’s not sharp or overpowering. It’s a very smooth tasting tropical-ish drink and very easy going, I just wish they’d gone for something more original for a gold edition.
A bit sweet, a bit bitter, but nice overall. Certainly it’s a lot better than the Xyber Original flavour. I think this is the only cherry and raspberry drink I’ve ever tried so in that respect it scores high on the originality scale.
This is your basic clone drink… slightly sour and not the most refreshing of flavours, but it does the job.
