Grenade Energy

July 25th, 2020

New energy drinks are a rare discovery at the moment, but gym-bunny nutrition brand Grenade have been pushing out new products left, right and centre. One of those is fortunately for me an energy drink. There’s no description on the can to describe what the flavour might be, but my taste buds are telling me that this is a grape soda drink. It’s low(ish) in calories, and contains the on-trend BCAA protein mix you’d expect from this brand too. It tasted pretty good and gave me the required (quite high!) caffeine kick that I craved.

Oshee Vitamin Water

July 4th, 2020

Three ingredients… just three. It needed a lot more! Still water with just caffeine and vitamins in sounds like it should be perfectly refreshing, however in reality it tastes like plastic. Not the sort of taste you get if you leave water in a plastic bottle, but the actual taste of liquid plastic. Really not pleasant at all and I could only drink a very small amount, it was bad tasting to the extreme!

Radnor Energy: Cranberry and Raspberry

June 20th, 2020

I’m not a fan of cranberry usually, I find it quite bitter. But, this cranberry and raspberry drink is very moreish. It’s lightly carbonated fruity water with a splattering of caffeine. Actually, it’s not caffeine, it’s Coffeine (Caffeine anhydrous from coffee bean) – with a big trademark symbol after it. This is certainly an interesting take on fancy bottled water, but if you want the best flavour then go for the Lemon and Lime one.

Warrior Sugar Free

June 13th, 2020

Quite a different taste to the full-fat Warrior, and usually I prefer the sugar free variant. This time however the original flavour is so much better. This sugar free version is slightly more bitter and has a dark caramel aftertaste. Given that the original version is actually quite low on calories itself anyway, I’d suggest choosing that much tastier version over this.

Reign: Razzle Berry

May 30th, 2020

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.

Reign: Sour Apple

May 23rd, 2020

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.

Get More Vits Active – Tropical

May 9th, 2020

It looks healthy, it tastes a bit healthy. It’s part of a range of other ‘Get More Vits’ products, with this one being the caffeinated product. It’s following the current fad for proteining (??) up energy drinks, and I’m not a fan of that… it seems a bit unnecessary to me! Anyway, this is otherwise just a bit of a bland tropical drink but low in calories.

Brain Füd: Pineapple and Ginger

April 18th, 2020

It burns!!!! If there is pineapple in this drink, then I can’t taste it. All I can taste is the fiery harshness of ginger burning its way to my stomach. It’s very strong on the ginger front if you hadn’t got that… strong and overpowering enough to make it unpleasant to drink and I couldn’t finish it. I think I managed about a quarter of the carton before giving up.

Brain Füd: Citrus and Mint

April 11th, 2020

Another Tetra Pak still drink, this one tasting like an alcohol-free mojito! I’m not convinced that mint should be an ingredient in any drink – it takes me by surprise every time I take a sip, and not in a good way. But, I did drink the whole thing so it couldn’t have been that bad. But, it is the dominant flavour going on here and I’d have much preferred it to have been just a nice still lemon-lime drink instead.
