Moju Chilli Energy

January 11th, 2020

An experience… I’m glad it’s in shot form though. It’s basically a very juicy shot tasting mostly of pineapple juice, but there’s chewy bits floating around in it which make it quite weird to drink. Then, about 3 seconds after drinking it you get the hit of the chilli. It’s certainly very unique, but given its odd drinking experience and the very low caffeine content it’s not going to score too highly as energy shots go.

4move Active Vitamin Lime

November 23rd, 2019

Quite an unusual drink given that it’s not actually billed as an energy drink. It’s a magnesium and vitamin drink with a low caffeine content provided by guarana. The guarana content according to the nutrition label is 0.01% which likely makes the caffeine content lower than that. Now then, magnesium is obviously an essential part of our diet, but I can’t help but think that whacking it in a high sugar drink like this is somewhat counterintuitive though. One of magnesium’s purported benefits is reducing the risk of diabetes, so maybe it should be an essential ingredient in all high sugar drinks – targetted delivery? Just my thoughts anyway. The lime flavour was sweet and natural, very refreshing, and as a soft drink this was a nice treat. As an energy drink (which to be fair, it’s not branded as such) it didn’t provide a kick.

Red Bull Beach Breeze

November 2nd, 2019

This is branded as ‘Summer Edition’, but being in a blue can instead of the white summer edition can seen in the UK and US, I thought I’d better try it to make sure that it’s different. The white summer edition is coconut-lime, and I’m sure that this blue summer edition is also coconut-lime, but somehow tasting different. It’s less coconutty (???) and much fruitier, slightly berry-like too perhaps? Maybe it is exactly the same and I was just in a much better mood when I drank it, but as I have no side-by-side comparison to scientifically test that then my opinion will have to do – I like this blue can better than the white one!

Celsius Citron Lime

October 26th, 2019

Mmmm, really good. Nice, fruity, and refreshing. It’s also dangerously highly caffeinated (at almost double the dose of Red Bull) in combination with being really easy to drink so be careful! Fortunately, it is very low in calories by way of compensation.

Sunsoul Kaffir Lime and Lemon

December 9th, 2017

A nice little lemon-lime energy drink. The selling point of this one is its use of natural fruit juice instead of artificial flavourings. I think it really makes a different because it’s fruity and refreshing… it’s just a shame that fruit juice isn’t low calorie!

Moose Juice: Mojito

November 4th, 2017

Normally Mojito flavoured drinks fill me with dread. They tend to be sickly and downright weird! That lime and mint combo just does nothing for me. But, this one was surprisingly ok. Only ok mind, especially given the high cost of this drink. It’s aimed at the gym going population with added BCAAs to help with that all important protein absorption, and is of course low in calories.

Red Bull – Edicion Limon (Lime)

August 12th, 2017

You can definitely tell that this is a premium lime flavoured drink – it lacks the ‘lime cordial’ taste of most of the other cheaper brands. Sadly, I didn’t find this very refreshing though which is a real shame. I could also only find this in Spanish, so I’m not sure if there’s an English language label out there either, but whatever the case it’s a member of the Red Bull family now.

ESTAR – Lemon and Lime

April 30th, 2016

A very nice lemon and lime flavoured energy drink. Quite often with the lemon/lime flavours, they taste like someone has used way too much cordial. But, this one is balanced just right. This is the first ESTAR drink I’ve discovered and looking at their web site they seem to have many flavour varieties. If I come across any others I’ll be sure to grab and review them quickly.

Rockstar Freeze – Frozen Lime

February 6th, 2016

A really nice and smooth lime flavoured drink. I’m a big fan of lemon and lime energy drinks, and this one doesn’t disappoint. I can’t detect the ‘cooling’ effect that you are supposed to experience, which is where the ‘frozen’ aspect of the drink branding comes in, but it’s nice regardless.
