Bang: Rainbow Unicorn

March 16th, 2024

The fragrant taste of the world’s finest juiced unicorns combined with a spectral blast of rainbows. Maybe. Well, there’s no actual clue on the can as to what flavour this drink really is so I’m going to have to make a guess. I think that it’s strawberry, but with a twist of vanilla. Please contact me if you know differently!

Raptor Orange Mango

February 10th, 2024

Well, it’s not so much orange as mango, or tropical really. It’s a large can of tropical energy drink. Quite smooth and refreshing but other than the funky dinosaur can design there isn’t much that make this drink stand out.

Ghost Warheads Sour Watermelon

January 27th, 2024

The second of three Ghost energy drinks from the USA that I’m trying – this time Warheads Sour Watermelon flavour. I’ve never tried Warheads but they appear to be a sour flavoured hard candy and I had plenty of sour sweets as a child, but I’ve no reference point to compare this drink against sadly. As a standalone drink it is both sour and watermelony, but very sickly and strong in flavour much like the blue raspberry one was. Not a great taste experience and not very refreshing.

Ghost Sour Patch Blue Raspberry

January 20th, 2024

This is a new brand to me, I’m not sure if it’s well known or not in the USA but a friend brought a selection back from holiday for me to try. The can is totally plain but with a plastic wrap label like you tend to get on PR-sty;e custom made drinks for special events, however it doesn’t look or feel like a typical corporate brand can. The word ‘Ghost’ for example is embossed and the lettering / imagery on the yellow section of the label is textured. It has the feel of a premium drink. I had a look on their web site and there are about a dozen different flavours, quite a few of them seem to be partnered with various confectionary brand – Swedish Fish energy drink sounds amazing. This one, Sour Patch Kids, is a blue raspberry flavour. It does indeed taste of blue raspberry but sadly I don’t have any Sour Patch Kids sweets against which to compare. As a drink though, it was quite sickly. I drank the lot, don’t get me wrong, but it was a chore. Perhaps in their desire to closely match the flavour of the sweets, they forgot that if you eat massive bag of sweets you start to feel sick. Two other flavours to try though…

Vimto Energy Zero

January 13th, 2024

Exactly the same as the regular full fat Vimto Energy only low in calories. Honestly, I couldn’t tell the difference, there was no strange aftertaste or ‘chewyness’ that you get sometimes with the sugar free variants. If you have the choice then you might as well go for this zero version.

Raptor Citrus

January 6th, 2024

I love lemon energy drinks, and this one despite being generically named ‘citrus’ is pretty lemony. It’s refreshing and smooth, really nice. It has just the right balance of sweetness and sharpness and is low calorie too.

Rockstar Refresh Watermelon Kiwi

December 30th, 2023

As drinks go, this is quite a smooth but generally bland energy drink. It’s refreshing and inoffensive but it just doesn’t stand out. The most unusual thing about the drink is the colouring of the can. The pink inside the Rockstar star actually looks like someone left the can out in the sun and bleached a red star to pink.

Raptor Tropical Cherry

December 23rd, 2023

So this is what it tastes like when you mix a tropical drink with a cherry one. Tropical cherry. It’s certainly unique that’s for sure. I’m not sure if I actually like it or not, I mean, I don’t hate it, it’s just an assault on the senses is all, not what I’m expecting on my taste buds! You have the tartness from the tropical, plus the sherbettyness (new word, officially) from the artificial cherry flavouring. The name Raptor I’m assuming is referring to the Velociraptor dinosaur and not the birds of prey… and I’m basing that off the picture on the can!

Prime Energy Strawberry Watermelon

December 9th, 2023

I couldn’t taste the watermelon, but I could taste the strawberry. Do you know what? This is basically pink lemonade, like you get in the Irish supermarkets, but obviously with a massive caffeine hit. It’s nice and refreshing, just like pink lemonade is.
