USN Power Punch Berry

August 21st, 2021

A bit of a disappointment really. It was a very generic ‘berry’ flavour, but I’d say it was predominantly blackcurrant. Low in calories but due to the large can size you got quite a caffeine hit. Quite sickly to drink the final third of the can though!

Emerge Impact Sugar Free

August 14th, 2021

Whereas the original flavour of Emerge Impact can be classed as an original drink in its own right when compared to its Emerge Dual predecessor, this sugar free version does not deserve the same crown. Yes, it is sugar-free, but it contains 3 calories/100ml (yes, a respectable effort) whereas the full fat version contains 9 calories/100ml. Unless you are actively avoiding sugar specifically, there’s very little reason to get the sugar-free variety. Taste-wise it’s slightly less flavourful, perhaps even tasting slightly watered down compared to the original version. Regular readers of this site will know that usually I prefer the sugar-free versions of drinks, however in this instance the combination of less sugar plus sweeteners in the original version have made it the better choice if you’re after flavour.

Emerge Impact

August 7th, 2021

This is at first site a rebranded version of Emerge Dual, which itself was a re-brand of Emerge. In fact, they haven’t even updated the blurb on the back of the can which still states that “Emerge Dual is a great tasting energy drink…”. That may be true, but this isn’t Emerge Dual. In fact, look a little more closely at the nutritional information and you’ll see that it contains 9 calories/100ml. That’s very low, and I assume that the drink has been reformulated in order to avoid the UK sugar tax and keep its price low. Honestly, it tastes just as sweet as I remember it and you would be hard pressed to tell that it is effectively a lower calorie drink.

Coca-Cola Energy Cherry

July 31st, 2021

It’s Cherry Coke with a kick! Much nicer than normal coke in my opinion because the fruity cherry flavour makes the classic coke taste a lot lighter. Full of calories and caffeine, this drink is a great sugary summer beverage. If they did a sugar-free version it’d be even better!

Rubicon Raw Raspberry and Blueberry

July 17th, 2021

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.

Exstase: Apple

July 10th, 2021

Meh. Well, what can you expect for 25p? It’s slightly bitter and a bit sickly, like cheap apple squash really.

Exstase: Watermelon

July 3rd, 2021

For only 25p, you can’t expect too much! This was a high calorie energy drink with a very strong flavour to it. The watermelon taste was sickly and with a slight bitter tang to it, it was quite difficult to finish the can really even on a hot day.

Nocco Limon Del Sol

June 26th, 2021

I love lemon energy drinks… regular readers will know that already. This one is super-high with caffeine (55mg/100ml) in a medium-sized can (330ml) so packs quite a punch. Added BCAAs for that unneeded post-workout hit combine with a low calorie count to deliver a curious combination (I won’t rant about energy drinks aimed at serious gym-goers again), but it is very easy to drink and highly refreshing.

Rubicon Raw Orange and Mango

June 19th, 2021

A slightly disappointing tropical drink. After trying the cherry & pomegranate flavour first, I had high hopes for this one. Sadly it didn’t live up to those expectations. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not a bad tropical drink at all, it’s just nothing special.
