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.

Lucozade Revive – Lemon and Lime

September 5th, 2020

New Lucozade time! I love lemon and lime drinks… I know Lucozade doesn’t have much caffeine in, so you won’t get a kick from it in that department, but it is very refreshing and easy to drink. A nice summery tipple.

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.

NOCCO Caribbean

August 22nd, 2020

Tropical! I had expected to taste coconut in this one (I don’t know why, I know that there’s giant pineapples all over the can) but it is definitely just a mild and sweet pineapple drink. High in caffeine, it’ll keep you going all day – and being pineapple it’s certainly different to most other drinks you’ll find.

NOCCO Red Berries

August 15th, 2020

I first discovered NOCCO at a 7Eleven whilst on holiday in Sweden. Being Sweden, it was a very expensive purchase. Then, a few days later I found myself in Norway and discovered NOCCO was even more expensive there! Anyway… I saw NOCCO being sold in Morrisons in the UK and it was considerably cheaper. This red berries flavour was quite bitter, but not as unpleasant as I had expected. After a few sips I had accustomed myself to the bitterness and started to enjoy it. An interesting line of drinks if you can find them. Oh yes, and they have a lot of caffeine in them.

Ka Reload Black Cherry

August 8th, 2020

It’s ok I suppose! Basically, it’s a cherry Lucozade rip-off. To be fair, it’s not far off in flavour, it’s just missing that typical Lucozadeness (??) that I’d describe as the almost trademark way it feels when it fizzes in your mouth. It think Lucozade must have patented a special bubble shape or something for that because no other fizzy drink feels the same. Back to Ka Reload… yeah, it’s drinkable but not very refreshing or caffeinated.

Ka Reload Mango

August 1st, 2020

I guess it’s like the Ford of sports drinks world??? Geddit? No? Oh well. It’s fake tropical Lucozade. Not much in the way of caffeine but also not as packed full of sugar.

Grenade Energy

July 25th, 2020

New energy drinks are a rare discovery at the moment, but gym-bunny nutrition brand Grenade have been pushing out new products left, right and centre. One of those is fortunately for me an energy drink. There’s no description on the can to describe what the flavour might be, but my taste buds are telling me that this is a grape soda drink. It’s low(ish) in calories, and contains the on-trend BCAA protein mix you’d expect from this brand too. It tasted pretty good and gave me the required (quite high!) caffeine kick that I craved.

Sunsoul Passion Fruit

July 18th, 2020

It looks like Sunsoul are taking a different approach with their branding now. Gone from the can design is the random ‘#’ of the variety, this flavour is just a name. the can design also has a lot more colour with a bright pink top half instead of the all-white minimalistic design on the other flavours. The flavour is quite sharp and obviously on the tropical side. I found it quite sickly even though it’s not too overloaded with sugar.
