It’s certainly a different take on orange flavoured energy drinks. It’s sweet but not strong or sickly. The taste is quite definitely orange, but not watered down either. I think they’ve struck a good balance of flavour. When compared to something like Lucozade, it’s not as sharp, fizzy, or sickly. When compared to one of the other ‘own-brand’ orange energy drinks, it’s much smoother and refined. You can’t taste that it’s a Red Bull product, but you can certainly tell that it’s a premium product.
Not exactly original, but certainly a palatable beverage. It’s fruity and fresh, but also quite sweet and sickly by the time you get to the end of the can.
Orange flavoured, I think. It’s a really light and fresh flavour, which is definitely in the citrus zone. It’s very much like a flavoured water which makes it refreshing and thirst quenching. With zero calories, it’s also less likely to damage your diet too. Probably the most unusual thing about this drink though is the textured can. While you are drinking it, the nobbly bobbly lumps all over the can give you quite a good grip on it and certainly assure you of a quality product.
It’s like a sherbet orange flavoured drink in a bright pink can. The writing on the can is predominantly in Germany, and even Google Translate struggles with the tag-line of “Die Limo Mit Bums”, which apparently means “The Limo With Bums”… I’m sure that’s not correct. It’s a nice drink though, something a bit different, and it gets extra points for calling itself Tantrum in what appears to be a non-ironic way.
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?
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.
It’s a clever idea – jump on the bandwagon of protein drinks by producing an energy drink with added protein. The 3in1 on the bottle refers to the combination of protein, carbohydrates and caffiene, and the drink is clearly marketed at the gym-going type. The taste, sadly, is not up to scratch. The orange is very bitter and not at all refreshing. If I were drinking this after a gym session, it wouldn’t help my stomach at all. Alsom if it’s protein you are after then you should probably go for an actual protein shake or protein bar – this drink contains less than 2g of protein.
It might list the fruits on the can, but it really is just a tropical flavour energy drink. Sweet, fruity, mildly refreshing but mostly a bit too sickly for my liking. I still prefer the more artificial flavour of Monster Ripper if you’re going to go down the tropical route.
For only 39p it’s not too bad. More orangy than tropically I’d say, but still a little on the sharp side for my liking. It’s obviously a budget drink and both the can design and taste reflect that, but if you want something different to the normal energy drink taste then you can’t really go too far wrong with this one.
