Monster Mule Ginger Brew

September 12th, 2020

Energy drinks with ginger are rare, and usually they burn! Monster have managed to get the flavour just right here. There’s no hint of the usual Monster energy mix here at all, instead you have a nice and surprisingly refreshing ginger and lime (aka, Moscow Mule without the vodka) drink. It’s quite high in sugar and gives you a massive kick there along with the usual caffeine content. I found this from US import site https://atasteofthestates.com/

Lucozade Revive – Lemon and Lime

September 5th, 2020

New Lucozade time! I love lemon and lime drinks… I know Lucozade doesn’t have much caffeine in, so you won’t get a kick from it in that department, but it is very refreshing and easy to drink. A nice summery tipple.

Oshee Vitamin Energy: Vitamin D+K

July 11th, 2020

Very tasty but sadly hardly any caffeine that I could tell. It contains guarana extract but that doesn’t appear to give the drink enough caffeine to warrant a high caffeine warning. The mint flavour is very subtle and works well with the fruity lemon-lime.

Combu Radler Grapefruit Lime

February 1st, 2020

I have to say, I wasn’t sure what to expect with this one. With the note on the can to say there’s no alcohol, I was puzzled – turns out that the drink is brewed so basically tastes like non-alcoholic beer! I’m not a fan of beer, so I didn’t particularly enjoy it. Also, I couldn’t taste any grapefruit or lime… I’m sure it was in there somewhere but the brewed flavour was overwhelmingly the dominant flavour.

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.

Clean Drink Cactus-Lime

November 9th, 2019

There were a few flavours of ‘Clean Drink’ available in the small Swedish news agent that I found this in, but this looked the most interesting. Cactus and Lime flavour – it certainly tastes a bit different to your average drink. You can taste the lime easily, it’s not a strong flavour but sweet and refreshing, and then there’s the odd accompanying plant-like taste that goes with it. It’s not unpleasant and it works quite well with lime, but I couldn’t tell you exactly what type of cactus it is! I assume there must be a specific type of cactus somewhere that has been used to make drinks for centuries and there may even have been a fascinating story on the side of the can to tell me this, but I don’t speak Swedish! Anyway, worth a try for something refreshing and different.

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.
