Amazing! There we go, review over 🙂 Super-refreshing and really nice, not too sweet, but perfectly fruity. A large, low-calorie energy drink from one of the premium brands, this is possibly one of my favourites of theirs (nothing is likely to ever beat their lemon flavour!).
This was my favourite of the four Furocity flavours. If the weather had been warmer, I’d have enjoyed it even more – it’s blue raspberry freeze-pops in a can 🙂 Very sweet and full of nostalgia, but not too sickly meaning you can easily drink a large can far too quickly.
A bit sweet, a bit bitter, but nice overall. Certainly it’s a lot better than the Xyber Original flavour. I think this is the only cherry and raspberry drink I’ve ever tried so in that respect it scores high on the originality scale.
Yeah I liked this one! Nice and fruity in all the right ways. Quite a strong flavour yet despite it getting a bit sickly towards the end it was still perfectly refreshing.
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.
Considerably better than the other Tenzing flavour I tried some time back. This one is still on the ‘natural’ and therefore bitter side, but not enough to spoil things. It’s fruity and with a slight citrus tang. I still don’t think that Sherpa Tenzing would approve though…
This tastes great, but it is quite sickly after a while. It’s part of Rockstar’s new ‘twister’ range, for which I have only found two products (see Wacked Red Berry). At the time of writing, the rockstarenergy.co.uk web site appears to be down, so I can’t be certain as to the full intention for the ‘twister’ range of flavours, but I’d guess they are a response to the UK sugar tax. At 4.7g of sugar per 100ml, this drink falls in just short of the 5g limit for the tax to apply and consequently provides 23 calories/100ml too. That’s not low in calories by any means for a soft drink, but it’s in the right direction and certainly a lot lower than the older full-fat Rockstar blends.
I have just noticed that Sunsoul appear to be numbering their flavours. This particular one is No. 8. Taking a look at their website, the Kaffir Lime and Lemon has been replaced by No. 22 ‘Sicilian Lemon and Lime’ instead… but I’ve not discovered that or No. 17 and No. 3 yet. Ill keep my eyes peeled. It’s a nice drink – the raspberry being the dominant flavour but if you are faced with the choice I’d go for the lemon and lime one.
Out of the 4 flavours of Muscle Moose’s Moose Juice currently available at time of writing, this is my favourite. Blue raspberry always reminds me of my walks to/from school as a child because of the range of 1990s confectionary available in that flavour: jellies, soft drinks, ice pops… good memories! This drink is low in calories and designed for the gym goer – it includes BCAAs (Branch Chain Amino Acids) which are a common supplement taken by body builders to supposedly aid the absorbtion of protein into the body post-workout. I only use the term supposedly because I don’t wish to make any claims for or against the supplement, I shall leave you to do your own research on that! I suppose as it’s in there, it does mean that if you have a can of this after your workout, then your post-workout protein shakes wouldn’t need the BCAAs either, but combining energy drinks with protein shakes is a bit unsettling on the stomach in my opinion so I couldn’t recommend it. If we forget the gym setting for a moment, it’s a nice standalone drink, but considerably more expensive than alternatives due to its branding.
