Red Bull does it again and manages a smooth and easy to drink energy drink. This time it’s sugar free too, but it’s losing marks for originality because everyone is doing a tropical flavour these days.
From the outside of the can it’s not possible, so far as I can tell, to work out what flavour it’s going to be. Well, the blurb is mostly in Greek so that doesn’t help me, but it still doesn’t seem obvious. Well, it turns out it’s tropical flavoured! It’s a subtle and sweet flavour, not too sharp. It also declares that it is 20% more caffeinated than normal drinks which is backed up by the 38.4mg/100ml caffeine content. That’s about 20% more than a regular 32mg/100ml drink. In reality, that’s not enough for me to have noticed any difference (not like some of the crazy strong drinks I tried in the US last year). Overall it’s a nice drink though, and it picked me up as expected!
Containing half the caffeine of regular Rockstar Energy drinks, this organic version is like a tropical drink but leaning towards lime quite a bit. It’s really good even if you’re not fussed about the whole organic certified labelling.
It’s a massive tropical drink and is so much nicer than its plain ‘Battery’ companion. It’s still just a generic drink though with not much going for it. If it had been purchased in the UK it’d probably have cost about 99p max, but as it came from Norway it was closer to £3.
Take a berry drink and mix it with a tropical drink and you end up with this. It’s an odd blend but somehow works. A large can and full of sugar but nice to drink.
I expected a lemon flavour, but it’s actually a tropical drink. High in caffeine and calorie content, it was disappointing.
It’s an average tropical energy drink. Very sweet and sticks to the teeth but other that that I can’t say it’s very special at all.
Red Bull have managed to tame the tropical flavour in their own special way. It’s just right! Sweet, but not overly, and definitely no nasty aftertaste. If you must go for a tropical energy drink, then you can’t go wrong with this one.
If you’re going for a bottle of energy drink, then you’re probably better off going for this than Lucozade. It’s less sickly and pumped with a lot more caffeine. I’d classify it as a tropical drink, but on the milder and sweeter side.
