Very nice, like a mixture of strawberry and raspberry in one large low calorie energy drink. This is the second of Aldi’s large can energy drinks that I’ve tried and it’s pretty good. So far so good!
This is the first in a bunch of reviews for Aldi’s new own brand ‘large can’ range of energy drinks. It’s not regular clone, but it is unmistakably an energy drink. It has a slightly tart and aniseed flavour to it which is pretty good to my taste buds. With a large ‘T’ on the front of the can, it’s obvious whose customers they are targeting. If given the choice, I’d go for this T over M though 🙂
I’m a big fan of lemon flavoured energy drinks, especially chilled ones opened on a hot summer’s day because they are usually very refreshing. This one was so close, but the lemon flavour is just slightly too strong. It’s sugar-free (without making a song and dance about it on the can) which is I am assuming to avoid the sugar-tax imposed on high sugar beverages in the UK.
I have to be honest, this tastes nothing at all like its original counterpart. It’s a nice energy drink with no dodgy aftertaste and overall quite easy to drink.
Quite a tart yet sweet drink, remeniscent of double-dips from the sweet shop. Nice in a 250ml can but I wouldn’t want much more than that. The upside is though it’s sugar-free!
With these 5-hour energy shots it really doesn’t seem to matter what flavour they say it is – what you get is a quick burst of bitter flavour down your neck followed by a pick-up a few minutes later. And that’s what really matters… you do taste the berry I guess, briefly, but it’s not important or much different to the other flavours!
It says 5 hours on the bottle, but this beauty got me through a 6 hour drive along the M4 on a busy bank holiday Friday evening. As you’d expect from a shot, it’s more about the instant caffeine hit whilst minimising bladder impact than the flavour which makes it a perfect driving companion.
Red Bull does it again and manages a smooth and easy to drink energy drink. This time it’s sugar free too, but it’s losing marks for originality because everyone is doing a tropical flavour these days.
Woah that’s orangey! This is probably one of my more favourite orange flavoured drinks, and as a bonus it’s sugar free. It’s been a while since I tried the original Red Bull Orange drink so I can’t easily compare, but from what I wrote I’d considered it to be a different take on orange drinks. It’s sweet and tangy but not sickly, very smooth and refreshing.
