Amazing! It’s like a raspberry ice pop but low calorie. The flavour is slightly muted, which is initially disappointing but by the time you get to the end of the can you’re grateful for. It prevents it from being too sickly and actually makes it quite refreshing.
This is the third variety of Reign that I have discovered so far. Sour Apple is refreshing and not very sour at all. It’s fruity and gets the balance just right, without being sickly at all even after drinking a whole large can of it.
A great big sugary hit of Monster’s tropical blend… they have a lot of tropical blends and this one is particularly sweet but not synthetic. It’s genuinely quite fruity!
Another addition to the Monster Ultra range, this time ‘green’ flavour… whatever that might be! It’s always a bit of a mystery trying new Monster flavours because they rarely mention anything on the can itself, instead opting for a more cryptic paragraph of some far-fetched scenario. In this case, it’s posing a question of “what is paradise?” along with a few suggested answers. Well, it turns out green tastes like a citrus/melon flavoured drink, so I’m going to mark this as melon. It’s refreshing and a very smooth drink with a pleasant flavour.
Considerably better than the melon variant and quite unusual tasting. It was fresh yet synthetic and not a lemon flavour I’ve come across before. It’s got those all important BCAAs in for the body builders (I’m not convinced by this latest trend which you may have realised if you’ve read previous reviews). Very high in caffeine and a large can, so be careful and drink in moderation! After a bit of research, it turns out that Reign is in fact a sister brand for Monster (not a sub-brand)… just a bit of added energy drink trivia for you there.
Well this is another one of those BCAA containing drinks that’s all the rage at the moment, but it is also quite high in caffeine. The flavour was very synthetic and sweet, and given it was a large can it was also quite sickly to drink despite being low calorie. That said, it wasn’t unpleasant… if you find this brand, go for the lemon flavour – much better.
I don’t like apple flavoured anything. Usually… but this drink surprised me. I had planned to just try and bit and tip the rest away because I was so unlikely to want to finish it. Well, all finished! A nice fresh, sweet favour, and low in calories too! It also has BCAAs for the body builders out there (??? why are you drinking energy drinks!?).
A nice tropical flavoured drink in a massive can – it was quite refreshing and mild too. It’s just a shame it’s so high in calories! It doesn’t score very high on originality though despite calling it El Mango… it’s a tropical drink in everything but name.
As with the ‘original’ flavour, it’s a clone and sadly nothing more special than that. Taste-wise, it’s actually difficult to tell that’s it’s sugar-free and it really does taste very similar to its full-fat version. It’s quite a watered down flavour to start with anyway.
