Flyte: Green Mango

January 4th, 2020

This is an odd one to describe. The ingredients lists fruit juices from concentrate: grape, passion fruit, lemon and lime. It also lists ‘flavourings’… but, and critically, there is specifically no mango mentioned anywhere specifically. In a green mango flavoured drink. I’d never heard of a green mango before so I had to Google it, and the first result was a Wikipedia entry about a type of Hummingbird of that name. I’m assuming the drink doesn’t contain hummingbird as that might go against its vegan credentials. Anyway, regardless of what it’s called and what it does or doesn’t contain, it’s a tropical flavoured energy drink, and nothing fancier or more complicated than that.

Rockstar Baja Juiced – El Mango

November 30th, 2019

A nice tropical flavoured drink in a massive can – it was quite refreshing and mild too. It’s just a shame it’s so high in calories! It doesn’t score very high on originality though despite calling it El Mango… it’s a tropical drink in everything but name.

Monster Juiced: Mango Loco

June 23rd, 2018

Amazing can design! But it’s just a tropical flavoured energy drink so popular in the summer so everyone is trying to get a share of that market. It’s sweet and has the synthetic Monster taste you’ll recognise.

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…

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.

Relentless Mango Ultra

July 4th, 2015

Wow, a big can of fruity juiceness. Relentless have managed to get the balance just right – it’s slightly tropical in taste, but neither artificial or sharp. It’s very fruity so gets a little sickly towards the end of the can, but nowhere near as bad as other similar flavours.

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?
