Blue Charge Diet Orange and Mango

December 30th, 2017

At least the own-brand me-too drink makers are starting to get it right. This one was at least in the ‘ok’ group of drinks. It wasn’t too sweet or sour, but had just the right amount of tang to it.

Aspire Mango Lemonade

December 16th, 2017

I drank this one with memories of the other Aspire drinks close to hand… and as I suspected I didn’t enjoy it. It’s really bitter and watery, with no real fruity flavouring or sweetness to it at all. It tastes how you’d expect something really healthy to taste! There’s no tropical or lemon hints there at all, sorry…

Boost Energy Tropical Guango Sugar Free

December 31st, 2016

Sharp and sweet, very fruity and difficult to tell that it’s a sugar-free drink. They’ve made the can a bit funky with multi-coloured fire patterns all over it and called it limited edition.

Tropicana Energy – Mango and Guava

August 29th, 2015

It’s just a shot of caffeinated fruit juice. I don’t much like fruit juice, so I found this horrific, but if you are after a caffeine perk without the usual energy drink flavour then this is for you. I’d be surprised if you could tell the difference between this drink and a regular juice drink.

Blue Charge Diet Mango and Cardamom

July 18th, 2015

No no no no no. It doesn’t work! It tastes like a nasty fruit tea. You get a cheap tasting tropical fruit flavour mixed with a brewed bitterness which I assume is from the cardamom. I had been hoping for a nice perfumed fragrance drink along the lines of what you get when you munch on the seeds from a cardamom pod, but I was disappointed.

Oshee Vitamin Energy Formula: Vitamins + Minerals

November 29th, 2014

It’s original alright – it doesn’t appear to have any added caffeine over the guarana extract. It tastes okay, it has no strange side effects, but it doesn’t give you the expected energy kick. It has tons of sugar in, so is not really aimed at the health conscious either which begs the question: just who is this drink aimed at anyway?

Boost Energy Orange and Mango

October 18th, 2014

It’s a middle of the road tropical drink. I managed to drink the whole can, so that means it wasn’t to sour or sharp. It was, however, very sickly, and a large 500ml can like this was far too much in one go.

Lucozade Energy Mango Mandarin (The Brazilian)

August 16th, 2014

Too high in sugar, too low in caffeine, and much too tropical for my liking. It’s sharp and tart in flavour, mostly taking its flavour from pineapple from what I can tell. It’s Lucozade’s World Cup 2014 special edition and apparently “it’s like a carnival in your mouth”. Hmm.
