Furocity Champion

March 30th, 2024

It’s a bedazzlingly gold can which sadly doesn’t give off the premium vibe that I think it was trying to go for. Rather, it looks more like the one-off budget brands you pick up in the pound stores which are trying to be shiny and bright to grab your attention. As drinks go, it’s not bad though – a very sweet tropical flavoured one that’s not too sickly even in this 500ml large can.

Raptor Tropical Cherry

December 23rd, 2023

So this is what it tastes like when you mix a tropical drink with a cherry one. Tropical cherry. It’s certainly unique that’s for sure. I’m not sure if I actually like it or not, I mean, I don’t hate it, it’s just an assault on the senses is all, not what I’m expecting on my taste buds! You have the tartness from the tropical, plus the sherbettyness (new word, officially) from the artificial cherry flavouring. The name Raptor I’m assuming is referring to the Velociraptor dinosaur and not the birds of prey… and I’m basing that off the picture on the can!

Prime Energy Drink Tropical Punch

September 16th, 2023

This isn’t what I’d call a usual tropical flavour at all, to me it tastes a lot more like fizzy cherry. Perhaps it’s the red can making me think that, but I’m not getting any of the usual passionfruit or mango notes at all, just slightly sour cherry. That’s nice, that’s for certain – it still has the now typical strong Prime Energy flavour profile that’s common to most of the variations, and it does get sickly for the second half of the can, but it’s nice enough.

Optimum Nutrition Amino Energy Tropical

September 2nd, 2023

It’s just a tropical flavoured energy drink, nothing fancier than that really I’m sorry to say. I drank it, it was quite highly caffeinated, I enjoyed it, but it doesn’t stand out much.

Protein Dynamix Tropical

July 8th, 2023

Much like the mixed berry flavour of this drink, it’s quite sharp and bitter. If you like that sort of thing then you will like this drink! It’s a strong flavour too, not too watery, so you get a real tang on your tongue from it.

Boost Juic’d Mango and Tropical Blitz

June 24th, 2023

The two best features of this drink are the price (£1) and the name. Boost Juic’d. I can forgive the pointless apostrophe because of the way the name rolls off the tongue. Boostjoooooced. It is just a fancily branded sugar-laden tropical energy drink though. Ok in its way, but it is just a tropical flavoured drink.

Virtue Clean Energy Tropical

May 20th, 2023

Apologies for the delay on this one, I picked up each of the Virtue flavours from Gloucester services, drank them, forgot to make notes, and then completely forgot what they tasted like. I actually found the tropical flavour again in Asda so have tried it out again just to bring you this review! Right then, the tropical flavour is quite sharp, refreshing, but sharp and not smooth. The drink is sweetened with stevia, and uses green coffee bean extract for its caffeine punch. It’s trying to be a responsible brand with an unspecified donation from each can being made to an unspecified “conservation of plants, animals and natural communities in the rainforest”. I’d like to have seen more elaboration and specifics on the can about that but I guess I can go and research!

Lucozade Alert Tropical Burst

October 2nd, 2021

I had high hopes for this drink – a new premium brand energy drink for the first time in a while. Sadly though, whilst it was ok to drink, it wasn’t anything special at all. It was basically the same as any other bargain shop can of tropical flavoured energy drink, only at premium prices. Flavour-wise it was strong and artificial, and quite sickly after a while. Like the cherry flavour, this would have benefited from being sold as a smaller 250ml can.

NOCCO Tropical

August 29th, 2020

Now here’s the tropical NOCCO – but don’t get this one, get the pineapple one I reviewed last week. This one is a bit sharp and synthetic tasting, quite difficult to get through the whole can really.
