5-hour Energy Berry

July 28th, 2018

With these 5-hour energy shots it really doesn’t seem to matter what flavour they say it is – what you get is a quick burst of bitter flavour down your neck followed by a pick-up a few minutes later. And that’s what really matters… you do taste the berry I guess, briefly, but it’s not important or much different to the other flavours!

Monster Juiced: Mango Loco

June 23rd, 2018

Amazing can design! But it’s just a tropical flavoured energy drink so popular in the summer so everyone is trying to get a share of that market. It’s sweet and has the synthetic Monster taste you’ll recognise.

Red Bull – The Tropical Edition Sugar Free

June 16th, 2018

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.

Red Bull – The Orange Edition Sugar Free

June 2nd, 2018

Woah that’s orangey! This is probably one of my more favourite orange flavoured drinks, and as a bonus it’s sugar free. It’s been a while since I tried the original Red Bull Orange drink so I can’t easily compare, but from what I wrote I’d considered it to be a different take on orange drinks. It’s sweet and tangy but not sickly, very smooth and refreshing.

Bulldog Power Sugar Free

May 19th, 2018

It has been almost five years since I discovered the original Bulldog energy drink (see this review). Now I assume that Bulldog Power is a rebranding of that product because it shares the same web site printed on the can – the taste is different to how I remember it. It’s sweet with a strong caramel flavour to it, still a clone, but with a difference. It’s nice but even the sugar-free version I’m reviewing here became quite sickly after drinking the whole can.

Emerge Zero Orange

May 12th, 2018

A really nice mellow orange flavoured energy drink. It’s not too strong or sweet making it really quite refreshing. Emerge are definitely up there amongst my favourites in term of flavour and price and this variety just helps to prop up that opinion.

Emerge Zero Yellow

May 5th, 2018

A fresh and very sweet sugar-free energy drink. It’s so sweet in fact that you’d struggle to believe it’s sugar free. Very nice, very refreshing.

MTV Up! Sugar Free

April 14th, 2018

In my opinion, this is preferable to the non-sugar-free version. It has less of an aftertaste and is a lot lighter is flavour. Other than that it’s pretty similar – the design of the can is different too with a confetti styled graphics instead of the diagonal stripes. It’s still a clone, but not a bad one.

MTV Up!

April 7th, 2018

The main selling point of this drink I’d say is its branding. MTV is an iconic brand, especially for those of us who remember the 1980s! It’s definitely a clone, but it’s not a bad one. and it didn’t cost much from a local discount store either. Taking a look at the drink’s web site, it seems it was quite poopular in Eastern Europe a couple of years ago, sponsoring various events around the summer. The taste: very sweet with a syrupy after-tang, but not bitter at all. Not too fizzy, but quite smooth.
