Monster HydroSport Superfuel Hang Time

September 19th, 2020

It’s a refreshing and still sports drink of an unknown flavour! Some sort of fruit but I genuinely couldn’t tell you what it is. It might be a very watered down version of the Monster Zero (blue label) drink, but it really is tricky to identify it. It’s nice anyway, so give it a go. Being non-carbonated, it’s very easy to drink.

Oshee Vitamin Water

July 4th, 2020

Three ingredients… just three. It needed a lot more! Still water with just caffeine and vitamins in sounds like it should be perfectly refreshing, however in reality it tastes like plastic. Not the sort of taste you get if you leave water in a plastic bottle, but the actual taste of liquid plastic. Really not pleasant at all and I could only drink a very small amount, it was bad tasting to the extreme!

Brain Füd: Pineapple and Ginger

April 18th, 2020

It burns!!!! If there is pineapple in this drink, then I can’t taste it. All I can taste is the fiery harshness of ginger burning its way to my stomach. It’s very strong on the ginger front if you hadn’t got that… strong and overpowering enough to make it unpleasant to drink and I couldn’t finish it. I think I managed about a quarter of the carton before giving up.

Brain Füd: Citrus and Mint

April 11th, 2020

Another Tetra Pak still drink, this one tasting like an alcohol-free mojito! I’m not convinced that mint should be an ingredient in any drink – it takes me by surprise every time I take a sip, and not in a good way. But, I did drink the whole thing so it couldn’t have been that bad. But, it is the dominant flavour going on here and I’d have much preferred it to have been just a nice still lemon-lime drink instead.

Brain Füd: Berry and Coconut

March 28th, 2020

This is an unusual find. It’s sold in Tetra Pak cartons instead of cans, and that’s because it’s a still drink rather than carbonated. This Berry and Coconut flavoured variety was very surprisingly quite nice! It’s not too strong in flavour, but has just enough fruity taste to be interesting and refreshing. The caffeine content is low, but enough. Very original, low in calories, top marks from me!

Monster Hydro Manic Melon

October 7th, 2017

Not a fan of this one sorry Monster. It tastes to me like a really weak melon squash. I mean seriously weak and watery. Perhaps the weather needed to be warmer to enjoy it, but all I could think about was, this needs more pre-mix in it! Probably would be nicer if the flavour was stronger.

Monster Hydro Mean Green

September 16th, 2017

Not sure I liked this much. It was still and very refreshing, but quite tart and tropical. I’d have preferred something a bit more lemonade-like, but having said that it was a change from the usual fizzy energy drinks.

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.

Nutri1st 3in1 Sports Drink Orange

April 26th, 2014

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.
