Liquid pear drops, that’s the only way to describe this drink. The first sip is nice, but it’s too overpowering after about half a can. Even the fact that it’s very low in calories doesn’t make up for that, but it is super-full of caffeine.
Despite the name, it tastes like peach. Google translate tells me that Fersken means peach so that worked out. It’s a sweet and sharp drink which I find a little too tart for my liking, but it does contain extra protein (BCAAs) and is sugar free.
Purchased in a 7Eleven mini-supermarket in Gothenburg, I had to Google Translate the flavor: Hallon means Raspberry. It tasted a bit like the Monster ‘Tea’-based energy drinks, which is to say, not that nice! It’s not fizzy, and quite watery tasting, but it does pack one ‘eck of a caffeine punch and is sugar free. It also includes BCAAs, which once again Google tells me is a protein supplement often associated with a weight-lifter’s post workout diet. It scores top marks for originality, but fails the taste test. Note: NOCCO = No Carbs Company.
Infinitly better than the Orange variety of this drink, as in it didn’t make me feel sick. It really does just taste like slightly fruity still water. Okay, so it’s got a tiny amount of protein in it, but it’s not worth the money in my opinion so just buy a protein bar and a can of Red Bull instead.
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.
